We ate on banquet night and really enjoyed it. Everything was piping hot, extremely tasty and very good value for money. We will definately go back when we are next visiting Devon.

We had a very enjoyable meal here. Service was good as were the prices. We would pay another visit the next time we are in the area.

This place needs to pull itself up! Staff were arguing amongst each other. We ordered vegetarian dishes. The food was horrible, frozen veg in the dishes. The whole experience was so dissapointing. The tables were set out boringly, un-inviting. A few years previous to this we visited this place and it was beautiful, lovely waiters and yummy food, I suggest... More

Bengladeshi cuisine at its best. Service when we visited was little slow however all food was freshly prepared and very tasty. Good bar facilities serving Indian premier lager and comprehensive wine choice together with all the normal spirits. We were also presented with a complimentary short at the end of our evening.

Arrived in Babbacombe quite late and just dropped in. The restaurant was very quiet. We ordered drinks but my beer was forgotten but the owner apologised for. The menu was pretty standard. Nothing more than a take away menu to be honest. The food was ok. Value for money just ok

Being Muslim there are not many halal places to eat in Torquay so when we found this place I was so chuffed - I walked in and the chap behind the 70's style bar had a right face on him asked if this was a halal restaurant only to be answered back with a unenthusiastic yes - the place was... More

Great value this place with a special half priced food offer ongoing. There is a large choice of the usual meals for an Indian on the menu. Not the best Curry I’ve had but certainly no fault found and portion sizes are generous. The manager also gave us a complementary drink as well. Worth a visit.

I was in Babbacombe early on a March evening with 40 minutes to spare and I was hungry, so I decided to try the Mirch Masala. The place was almost empty at that time, it was clean and tidy, and the service was good. The size of the portions was such that I had difficulty finishing the meal, but I... More

We have eaten here many times over the years and have always enjoyed the meal. However, on tonight's experience, we shan't be going there again! Has it recently changed hands, I wonder? The waiting staff were surly and unwelcoming but we could have let that go, had the food been ok but the meal the worst indian food we have... More
