“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Very quiet on a Thursday night and from the outside doesn't look too special. Located on a fairly steep hill in Pontypool.
Staff were very welcoming and the waitress even provided information on the best places to visit.
Very clean and modern. Food was excellent - up with the best I've tasted - and had a few!

Highly recommended.

“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We have been to this restaurant twice to eat and once for a takeaway and it has been spot on each time - definitely recommend. The food, service and ambience is great, it's a Pontypool hidden treasure.

“India Garden”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

After reading a review in a local newspaper and checking the Tripadvisior reviews we thought we would give it a try. The restaurant is situated in an old pub in Pontypool which actually was run by my brother some years ago. The exterior doesn't look very promising neither does the surroundings, but don't be put off. The interior is decorated in an minimalist style not the normal Indian detailing thank goodness. The couple of chaps running the restaurant are helpful and polite if you can get past being called "love". The food was for the most part excellent, chicken moist and flavourful, husbands King Prawns very good, nan bread delicious. Service was a little slow between courses was about the only complaint. Will visit again.

Came here for my fathers birthday and I have to say it was yet another absolutely lovely meal! Exceptionally good price, with friendly staff who aren't afraid to go out of their way for you, very clean and tidy with a lovely ambience. Would highly recommend to anyone.
