“Very very average food”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

I'm afraid I do not understand all the positive reviews on here of this place! We looked past the dated decor and the fact that the restaurant was empty because of these reviews. We thought we were going to be in for a real treat. However, the food was distinctly average and did not have much flavour. The mushroom rice was bland and dry, the chicken was dry also. The curry sauces were too sweet. A positive is that the staff were friendly. However, if you are looking for a special Indian meal, this is not the place for you.

“Great place!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Simple short review, always gone here, beautiful food, great staff, real family feel. Good value for money, big portions. My family have eaten in this restuarant since it first came into the town some 27 years ago. It's never let us down, take aways are swift and tasty. Eat hear!!!

“Not unpleasant but nothing to rave about”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We had a table for four. The starters came up fairly quickly but we'd been there for an hour before the main course was served. I had the chicken bhuna with mushroom rice; the chicken was overcooked and quite dry & tough, and the mushroom rice was more like pilau with some bits of mushroom chucked in.

I was disappointed that you couldn't buy anything other than house wines by the glass; I really fancied a Chablis but I was the only wine drinker on the table and didn't want to plough my way through a whole bottle.

Distinctly average unfortunately. On the plus side, it wasn't hugely expensive.

“Delicious as always!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We recently returned to our roots but were staying in Sandwich where dinner was included. Soooo, not able to visit Broadstairsat without visiting our favourite curry house, we called up at lunch time and ordered a take away, they stayed open later that usual for us to collect it and we took it home to Hampshire for our meal when we got home. As always it was delicious even reheated!
