Early on a Sunday evening there was just one other customer in the restaurant. The restaurant is quite comfortable although if you look closely you can see that some of the decor and fittings have been done on the cheap. Being very quiet the service was very attentive and we were quickly served. Our shared starter plate was really good... More

The restaurant was empty butvitcwasca Monday night out of season. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We didnt feel like they were rushing us even though it was 1130pm. Food was of a high standard and we would certainly return and recommend to others.

Arrived to stay in Bournemouth on a Friday. As we wanted an Indian meal and it was a short walk from the hotel, decided to give it a go. Was not disappointed. The staff were very friendly, and when asked a question about the menu, answered with confidence. Food lovely and hot and plenty of it. No room for desert.... More

Gonna give this a basic and easy review. Staff great and tentative. Large menu of choice. Food served promptly and within the appropriate time limits. Food tastes lovely. This is the second time I have visited whilst away from home and on each occasion this place has not let me down.

Very disappointing meal. Lamb was fatty and tough and no flavour. Chicken was dry and flavourless. With starter the chicken was again horrible. Considering we love Indian food this was an incredible disappointment. The waiter was excellent.

Excellent staff and ample seating, our party of four walked right in and we're seated despite a decent dinner rush. The chutney dishes served with the poppadoms were fantastic. The lamb jalfrezi was good as well, with a balanced level of spiciness. Very well priced. Every dish was nice with no disappointment. Pricing was was a pleasant surprise as it... More

Few issues. Wanted a Indian to watch in the hotel room with The Great British Bake Off. Don't judge we've all had those times when we don't want leave the room and walking half way round The New Forest had taken its toll on our daughter (the dhall expert). Anyway, I walked in and ordered takeaway. Welcoming, but lots of... More

I admit I have pretty high expectations when I go out for a curry. It's down to years of visiting the best curry houses in Manchester and Bradford. A recent trip to Bournemouth led to a search for a curry house near the hotel we were staying in and the guy on reception recommended the Indian Ocean. The popadums were... More
