Probably one of the best Nepalese restaurants in the area. It has a huge menu covering several different types of curry dishes from Nepalese to Goan and lots in between and I am happy to recommend it. The friendly service is excellent as are the prices. Rice or Nan is included with many dishes and portions are more than generous... More

I've tried most of the Indian restaurants in the area, and this is the best I've tasted. The staff are friendly and helpful, will listen to what you fancy and advise dishes that you may like. They will even sometimes make dishes that aren't on the menu. I went with a vegetarian friend who fancied a particular dish that wasn't... More

Best Indian takeaway in Paignton. Moved to Devon last December and have had some awful Indian takeaways, we were wondering if we would ever find a decent one. We have! The food arrived at the time we requested, it was piping hot and full of flavour. Plenty of meat in the curry's. Would highly recommend.

Our takeaway just arrived. We had two curries and pilou rice. The rice was fine but both curries were lacking meat!!! 5 small dried up pieces is NOT acceptable.

Whilst staying in the area we picked up a takeaway...the onion Bhajis were tasty n crispy but we were somewhat diassapointed with the curries...too much sauce and very little chicken! The chicken Massala balti was a bit tasteless and not like the usual balti I would have...but overall was good but don't think we'd go again!
