“Very interesting!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

This a different experience to traditional UK curry restaurants. Situated in Old Government House hotel, we were offered a very limited set price menu, which, in the main was very tasty. The food was very well presented in a tiny room, maximum about 20 diners. The decor seemed designed to take the guest back to the days of the empire so rather old fashioned. Service was good.

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

It was good to be on an Indian restaurant that did not offer a menu with about a hundred curries on offer using the usual suspects as sauces.
We chose the 'Wine Flight '(?) which really made the whole experience memorable with each course accompanied by a suitable wine.The Sommelier /Bar Man looked after us very well introducing and describing each wine.Thoroughly recommended .

Excellent meal. Not to too hot. Friendly staff but empty when we were there. And I don't think it is often full. Pricy - over £100 for 2

“Really out of the ordinary”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

First, this is not an Indian Restaurant as you know it. The restaurant is located inside the hotel, and not signposted from outside. It has a small menu, but all the food is excellent. We went for the £30, three course option. All the food is beautifully cooked and superbly presented in very pleasant surroundings. Ths Indian rice pudding was exceptional.The wine list is extensive with a range of price options.

This is not the cheapest Indian meal you will ever have, but for a special treat it is outstanding value.

“Bizarre!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

When we walked into the restaurant, which us part of the Old Governor's House Hotel there was no-one there! After a few minutes a friendly waiter turned up, made us welcome and tried to explain (most hotel and restaurant staff on Guernsey are Eastern European and speak English as a second language)) that all the electric light was going to be turned off for an hour at 8.00 and it would be candlelight only. I still haven't a clue why.
The maître d' took our orders, insisting that everything we chose was a brilliant choice.
Our starter was superb - flame-grilled prawns. Our mains (over-cooked chicken and bland fish curry) were distinctly average. Ice-creams were great. And all vastly over-priced.
Service was attentive - gosh, was it attentive - with waiters, maitre d', and other important functionaries desperate to check everything was fine.
All in all, a fascinating experience but not a gastronomic tour de force.
My wife says I'm being too kind!
