Ate here recently on a week night. Food was very good. The shatkora dansak was a great flavour, the lamb was a bit tough. Service was good. Unlicensed but take your own booze, they don’t charge for corkage.

Food was bland. Rice was hard. Not fresh and not authentic Indian food. Please you would be better getting an M&S Indian meal and putting it in the oven, Don’t waste your time.

I had my retirement meal here. 10 people, menu chosen in advance by the guests. A really great evening, everything arrived at the table as it should when it should. The atmosphere was great. It was a fantastic way to finish one's working career.

A perfect addition to Palmerston Road located walking distance from the seafront. Food tasted so fresh and was absolutely delightful. A BYOB which staff were happy to chill for us. This is definately one to try, and we for sure will be visiting again.
