Having been sorely disappointed by the pseudo-Italian rubbish served up at Carlo's the night before; our expectations were zero for this establishment. However, we were pleasantly surprised.

The menu is rather predictable; however, the food tastes of very fresh. The aromatic sauces contained loads of meat, and were bursting with the luscious flavours freshly ground spices.

We were staying near by and found this on a Saturday night. Got a table no problem as it was actualy quite quiet. Food was top quality. The service was 1st rate. I'd definitely go back.

While staying in Castle Douglas we were recommended this Bangladeshi jewel. It's quality of food and service are more likely in a big city at city prices. Excellent flavours, different dishes, super service. A real find, and worth travelling for of you are within 30 minutes. Chicken Jaijai superb......

We were staying in a village near Castle Douglas last weekend and thinking on the Sunday evening that there would be nothing better than a beer, a curry and the England vs Italy QF. The prvious day we had explored Castle Douglas and found this restaurant at the top of town. We duly arrived and chose prawn puri for starters, and a chicken dansak, a chicken dopiaza, pilau rice and 2 chapatis. The food was amazing, I have had better prawn puris to be fair but it was still tasty, the dansak was delicious and very plentiful, and although I only had a taste of the dopiaza it was very tasty and left a nice tingle on the tongue!! My only complaint was the length of time we had to wait, the restaurant was busy but as it was buffet night there was only the set dishes to be cooked and the order took 30 mins. I would visit again and would like to actually eat there as they have Cobra on tap which is the perfect partner for a curry
