The chef has won recently the award for the best curry in UK. Well deserved we think. We had dahl soup, veggie samosa, and two sag dishes for our main courses. The food was very good. We enjoyed the atmosphere too.

We are regular customers of this restaurant and for the first time decided to have an alternative Christmas lunch. We were warmly welcomed and the tables were nicely decorated. The atmosphere was just right and everyone there appeared to be having a really good time. The five course lunch was superb and the choices for the set meal were many... More

My family have been eating at this restaurant for over 30 years. It's the best curry house in Bournemouth. They always make extra effort with regulars like myself. The staff are always so welcoming and polite. I would really recommend the chicken tikka jalfrezi and the sally! Today I was informed about their app, it makes it even easier to... More

A bit of a clue with this place is the seventies Bournemouth decor, along with a wonderful collection of laundromat style irrelevant cheap English countryside landscape pictures. Wait till you see the frames. They tried hard to upsell us when ordering which we resisted, the food was ok, up to the point of chewing into what they called lamb. Mutton... More

The food order arrived within a reasonable amount of time after ordering. It was also quite hot - nothing worse than a cold takeaway. The chicken tikka varied in quality across my 2 takeaways. The first time it was scrumptious and for the second some bits felt like poor cuts of meat or cooking (weirdly squidgey to the bite). Onion... More
