Ive not eaten in, but I have had several Take Aways. The food is excellent and is freshly cooked. You can have a drink at the bar while waiting.

Me and my partner visited whilst away over the Christmas period. From the outside we were blown away by the thatched roof and the decor inside was also good. We were extremely pleased by the service we were given, the staff were very attentive and took care of us very well. I ordered the chicken Tikka masala and found it... More

I'm not sure why there are so many excellent reviews - friendly customer service? Low expectations? I must admit, I felt a little misled... We ordered and picked up a takeaway curry from this lovely thatched place. Turning up a bit late for my allotted time, I was worried that the curry would be sitting there getting cold. Not so....

I can safely say I have never had a bad experience here, they don't mind me sitting in my grubby rugby kit waiting for takeaway and the made a really good effort to accommodate a lactose intolerant freind. The food is fantastic, fresh and full of flavour

Had meal ordering king prawn Dhansak which consisted of baked beans rather than lentils, would suggest a few lentils were in the dish. Spinach dish with garlic consisted of dried reconstituted tiny pieces of spinach certainly nor fresh frozen or whole leaves, it was oily as it appeared the chef was trying to disguise the fact the spinach was not...

It's a curry house that serves curry. no worse than the next curry house but unfortunately no better either. nothing stands out about this place that would encourage a return. Food was good but the service was a bit over enthusiastic with several different waiters asking the same questions which was a tad annoying. It has a nice feel with... More

Nice parking, easy to find, looks lovely from the outside. However, if you have to eat here make sure you take a jumper (or a chunky coat), it's freezing inside. We didn't even warm up after eating our meal and sat with our coats on the whole time. I wondered why we were the only people in this restaurant at... More

Whilst I was down at Fordingbridge visiting family and friends, me and my husband decided to try this resturant as it was recommended by several friends. It definitely was worth a try. Staff were very welcoming. As for the food it was very tasty and differant. Waiting time was on point. Overall a very enjoyable experience.
