“Tasty and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Choose this place because of the TripAdvisor reviews. I was not disappointed.
Good food. Good service. Decent price. Can't ask for much more.
The only regret I have is not ordering more of the Chef's recommended dishes.
Cheers Jack!

“Best Indian in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

I have eaten at the majority of Indians around Windermere, Ambelsdie, Bowness and Kendal. This is definitely up there with the best, takeaways are great and with 30% off on takeaways it's hard to argue with not getting one. Kind of missing a trick to get people in but the food is really good. The service is also great, attentive but can sometimes be slow. All In all there isn't any competition in Windermere for this particular type of cuisine.

“Decent Meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

Went here with the family on a Friday evening.

Found a table without any problem.

The service was friendly and professional throughout the evening.

It was a hot evening and the aircon wasn't on - we asked for it to be turned on but were told it had broken.

Draft beer had a funny aftertaste.

Food was fine without being exceptional. We were brought up on Baltis in Birmingham so prefer a lot more spice than we received here (despite asking for spicy dishes).

No dish was unpleasant and the Naans are very good.

If you're in the area and feel like an Indian meal, why not try it?

“Fantastic! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

A classic example of a restaurant that deserves it's 5 stars and high Tripadvisor raring.

Friendly welcome.

Modern decor.

Owner that tried hard.

Most of all amongst the most delicious Indian food we have ever had!

Thank goodness for decent restaurants even in high tourist footfall locations like Bowness.
