Eaten many Indian meals over the years and this one of the best I've had. Only downside is that you have to bring your own Alcohol. Service good and atmosphere great

Busy place - positively heaving - during the half term break. Fine if you are in a foursome and get one of the alcove tables round the edge of this rather cramped restaurant. Otherwise for twosomes there's not much romance being stuck beside the kitchen, the toilets or being jostled in the middle of the floor surrounded for those queuing... More

My family was the second table to arrive for the dinner time service at 6pm. We were packed like sardines in a tiny area at the back of the restaraunt. I thought getting in early would mean reasonably prompt service but it was past 7pm before we got our main meal - and we didn't have starters. The place filled... More

Great meal as always when we come to Lyme. They are always kind to the children. Remember it is a BYO. Sag aloo was a bit dry but just picking holes - it's a very decent Indian

When the main arrived no heating elements were provided so the remaining meal soon got cold. The chicken in the dish was a rubbery texture, not great at... More

This place is the greatest. Staff are hilarious and attentive. Food varied and inexpensive plus very tasty. It's always packed with locals so that speaks volumes

Delicious food, funny and friendly staff. The restaurant was very busy when went last night but this didn't affect the service or quality of the food that we received. Definitely recommend booking! Bring your own alcohol means that the meal doesn't break the bank. Highly recommend a visit here!
