I ate here with my friend after a big day on the hills. The food is ok and came quite quickly. Starters were reasonable. The staff were really good despite being stretched to the limit with a few big groups.

What a let down, why the place was full I'll never know, chicken in tomato sauce no flavour at all, the wife's was just the same. Tastiest thing was the plain nan

Visited for lunch on Saturday. The place was deserted. Offered two tables both situated near open doors on a cold and windy day. The room was very cold even after they shut the doors. Although there were plenty of staff milling around and we were...More

Got a new takeaway and found missing items-charged for 8 poppadoms but only put 3 in bag. Tiny naan bread and bland rice. Very disappointed and won't use again

Nipped in to some extras for a curry thinking it would add be worth spending extra to add to our home made curry. Received small nans, small and tastless rice pots and overcharged. Great show.

We had two meals here and both were enjoyable. Good service, with quite a lot of vegetarian options and big portions... so much so that we took our leftovers away and had enough for lunch the next day. Specially liked the sag paneer. We saw...More

I was a little nervous of this place as they have a relatively low hygiene rating (3), but the menu is extensive, they offer a decent choice of wines, and interesting and the decor makes it a nice place to spend an evening, plus it's...More

I was a little concerned after reading recent reviews but I needn't have been, the staff were very friendly, we weren't rushed at any time and the food was plentiful and very tasty too. Very nice and very busy, will be back

Not sure. I've never seen a dog in there. I'd avoid this place. Hygiene rating of 3 and bland food. No wonder the dogs don't go there!
A question for the owners of this restaurant, although I'm not expecting a reply as it's pretty obvious you don't read your reviews. As a frequent visitor to Keswick and a lover of good Indian food, could you let me know when you intend to resume providing a range of dishes that people will enjoy eating. I gave up using your restaurant in 2014 when apparently you got a new chef. You served us the worst curry we had ever experienced and it's obvious from this site that nothing has changed I just hope a someone else who knows what they are doing will open a alternative in the town. It would certainly make you show your customers a bit more respect
