“A great curry!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

A recent overnight stop in Bakewell on a hot summer's day and a very good curry.

Most things in Bakewell are slightly over-priced - NOT Rajas.

Friendly, attentive service, and very good food. Recommended if you fancy a break from Bakewell pudding or pub grub whilst you're in the Peak District.

“Big flavour, big plateful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Warm welcome, good service, very good food and reasonable prices.
We rented a holiday cottage in Bakewell and other visitors had posted good comments indoors. They were right!

“Good quality food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

It wasn't full but even on a warm Tuesday evening this restaurant was doing a good trade in both sit down and takeaways. The food was generally excellent: popodoms were crisp; chutney was fresh; tandoori mixed grill excellent including 2 large prawns, lamb and chicken with a side sauce but a rather tokenistic salad; prawn balti flavoursome and rice; daal a little thin but good garlic flavour plus the naans which were light and puffy. The service was good although I really don't like waiters that say "no problems". So tighten up the detail on waiting and it was close to perfect.

Shame that there was no draught beer on their drinks menu but there is a good pub across the road. We would certainly return when in the area.
