Had a meal here yesterday.Staff friendly and welcoming, fast service and good price.The starter of Onion Bhaji were amazing, size of cricket balls, fresh and spicy. Mains of Lamb Korahi was delightful, lovely succulent meat .Would urge anyone who wants a curry in Loughton to eat here, they will not be disappointed.

Food - portions were generous, but taste was mostly indifferent. Service - can do better. Waiter initially insisted that our party MUST decide both our starters and main courses at once - he wasn't prepared to take our starters orders only. Subsequently, he returned and stated that the Manager authorised him to take starter orders only first and then come... More

Birthday meal for my daughter on busy Saturday evening. Very friendly staff and nicely presented food. Not your typical bowl of curry on a warmer. Have been using for years for treats and they don't disappoint.

Good food that never disappoints, when in the restaurant you receive good service with friendly staff. I just wish they could deliver for take always! Can be expensive compared to other Indians in the area. Would recommend for the best food.

The dining area is very big and well air conditioned. There is no natural light or Windows but lighting is good. Buffet £8.95 per person. Was offered popadums when we sat (these are not included in the buffet price) The buffet is tiny but enough for lunch. Drinks and desserts are extra of course. If you did want something sweet...
