“Shabby exterior”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Located on a run down terrace of shops but inside is great. It's like going back to the 70's both in the decor and the prices. I have been a number of time and always had good, polite service. It always is busy even when you have an early dinner. The food is very good value, it is not the best Indian restaurant but is certainly the best value.

“Acceptable, because it is cheap.”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

This place really is an experience, imagine the grumpiest irritated staff coupled with the abject misery of a decaying, forgotten run-down seaside dump. Add in a plate of sloppy, salty, stir in sauce and nonspecific meat and you are getting the picture.
The weird thing is, that we keep going there. It's probably due to the fact that it is so cheap it is unbelievable. The starters are always lovely though, just bear in mind that you will be practically ignored, and completely underwhelmed by the blandness of the mains.
The staff are so rude it is actually entertaining.

“Take in to consideration the price”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

I ate he with some friends and we found the service to be very good and the food quite average. The big but is if you take into consideration how cheap the food is here then I would say its worth a visit.
Bottom line is that you get what you pay for.

“Good and cheap!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Can't understand why there are so many bad reviews. We have been visiting this restaurant for over 20 years and only very occasionally had a bad experience. We find the regular staff very friendly and welcoming. The food is almost always excellent for the price. I would not hesitate to recommend this for a cheap, tasty curry.

“Had Take Out”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We had read the reviews that talked about poor service but as we were only staying a few doors away we decided to give them the benefit of the doubt but play it a bit safer and order take-out.

The good news is that the food is cheap and edible but it is not really like a curry, it is more like stews. If we had bought jars of curry sauce to cook at home I think it would have been more authentic. We also had 1 dish missing but were so underwhelmed by the food that we could not even be bothered to walk the 100m to complain and get the other dish.
