We have eaten here a few times, I agree with reviewer's comment that there are better Indians in Dorset. It is very average and inconsistent . Visited to book a table, the waiter could not be bothered to look at us, carried on writing, told it would not be possible at that time. I realize they may have been busy but not to show any courtesy or manners when dealing with customers is never a good idea.

We hadn't been here for a couple of years, and it doesn't somehow seem as good. Maybe the menu is too extensive. Anyway, they must be doing something right as it was standing room only. For me, there are better Indian restaurants in this part of Dorset.

High street Indian Restaurant without frills. Pleasant service and average prices. Fast service, naan disappointing (small). Chef's choices are unusual and worth a try. The remaining huge menu is standard Indian restaurant cuisine. Usual Indian beers on tap and a reasonable wines list. A good choice for a fast satisfying meal when hungry. It's nothing special but it is good food at a good price.

I love going to this place with friends and family because the food is so tasty and there is such a wide choice. Which other Indian restaurant serves rabbit curry? Delicious.
Owned and run by the same family for 30 years it is very popular with the locals and even our Sri Lankan pals.

The food is generally very good, perhaps the quality has declined a little over the past year, but remains a good standard. While the staff are pleasant and the service is prompt, recently it has been quite an unpleasant experience whilst dining in the restaurant due to the ridiculous temperatures. When we compained about the heat and asked if they could open the front door to let some air in they refused and instead offered to open a back door down an alley, which made no difference at all. Unless this changes I won't be eating there again in the near foreseeable future.
