“Not as good as it used to be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Food used to be OK if a bit of the same orange colour. Now it's still orange but more Birmingham than Bombay!

As always a great curry.
Without doubt the best curry in Helensburgh.
Best naan bread I've tasted in a long time.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Had a takeaway, first time in since it re-opened, I think under new management. Ordered something not on the menu and they were happy to make it and it tasted good. Lamb bhuna was very good. Chicken korma wasn't great but ok, I think not enough cream. Nan was very good. Would go again.

“Never again!”

Got a carry out on Saturday night and was looking forward to my usual curry but it was tasteless and a waste of money.
