The food was always good here. It was the service I objected to in the past. The waiters were arrogant and thought they were Bollywood stars. Now we're in a recession and it shows here more than most restaurants in Canterbury. The atmosphere is downbeat...More

Went here mid afternoon on a Saturday for the buffet. Limited choice but what was on offer was quite tasty. For the price of McDonald's you can eat as much as you like and under 9's eat free. Nice clean airy restaurant, staff attentive but not over...More

Although this Restaurant has traditional Indian fare on the menu, it also has some off the wall dishes, all of which have a broad description of the dishes ingridients plus its hotness. Service efficient and cordial. Will visit again and again as live locally.

I went to apeksha for my birthday back in July. We were a large group of 20 people, as all my friends turned up. Besides us, the restaurant was quite quiet. I found the food to be very good as usual. The service was not...More

Sunday evening late and the restaurant was almost empty. It didn't bode well as I had read the reviews and they were not all good. But in a previous incarnation as Balti Cafe owned by my friend Aslam it had been first-class so out of...More
