This place may try to look 'flash' but if you want to enjoy your evening and be treated as a customer, not an inconvenience - go elsewhere! Rude and obnoxious staff, plenty better within half a mile.

Me and my husband went there last night and this is the best Indian food we have had. The restaurant itself is very nice and is also very reasonably priced!
We will definitely go back again!

We're both vegetarians and were really impressed with the side dishes that were excellent, as were the pickles that came with the papadoms—always a curry house benchmark test. However the main courses appeared to be the usual standard sauces served with either chicken / lamb / vegetables. Our Vegetable Dansak looked uninspiring and the veg overcooked (but still pretty tasty). It would be great if the standard of side dishes could be replicated in the main dishes — perhaps having a couple of vegetarian mains that weren't just a meat dish, without the meat.
The only other downer was the musak : easy listening sax covers of 70s hits. Awful!

Friendly service, excellent depth of flavours, AMAZING aubergine bhaji (ya gotta have that!) and really unusual surroundings (Tudor beams) make this a pace we have been back to time and again. As good as any Indian restaurant I have been to anywhere, including my native Yorkshire.

Good Indian food in Ipswich is a challenge to find, this one is the worst.Dark atmosphere, bad food and self-obsessed staff. I will not go here even if someone is paying me to

We are very disappointed that you feel this way. We did explain that the kitchen closes at 10.30 and ALL the order would need to be placed before then. We also feel that the staff were very accommodating as they sat you upstairs even though it was closed and aloud you to make as much noise as you like. . We hope you try us again to prove ourselves.
