I am a repeat customer here. Why? Because its just about the consistently best Indian around. Always great curries and great service. Been here with a number of different groups including children and everyone always finds something to their taste and no-one leaves disappointed.

If you book with Table Pouncer you get 50% off food - or do you? My wife ordered King Prawn Biriany (£14.99) and was told there was a £7 surcharge - i.e. they have withdrawn the 50% discount. I had a Lamb Vindaloo - trouble...More

Been to and ordered takeaway from this restaurant many times and it has always been really good, hot and freshly cooked and the best naan breads in Bournemouth I reckon. The dishes aren't cheap but they aren't overpriced either, i'd say minimum £12 a head...More

This is without doubt the best Indian restaurant I have ever visited. Very friendly, spotlessly clean, delicious food and top rate service. We have four Indian restaurants within walking distance but prefer to spend the cab fare (drinks are well priced) and visit Joys
