Really good menu with an authentic Indian flavour. Service was friendly and swift. Interior of the restaurant quite basic (a table cloth would be nice). Recommended.

The food was fantastic and I was made to feel welcome by the owner. This should be higher in the Bristol Indian ratings than the current 'best' Indian !

Delicious, subtle flavours in all the dishes and certainly some combinations that were new to us. The waiter was very welcoming - it was our first visit - personable and attentive. All round a great experience.

Came here a couple of weeks ago on a Wednesday night and although the surroundings feel a little basic the food is excellent. I've tried a few of the Indian restaurants in Bristol and this is my favourite so far. I would definitely go back, the bill worked out about £20 each for food and drinks.
