I don't understand how this restaurant is so low on the list of restaurants in Southend as I have always found the curries to be excellent, especially the lamb shank. I never understand why the Rajasthan is always empty when ever we go, as the staff are very attentive without being over friendly which I have found with other curry... More

We went here as a party of 19 for a family birthday meal on a Sunday afternoon. We had children with us who were made very welcome by the staff. Sunday afternoons are buffet, which didn't have a very large variety but what they did have was VERY nice. With most Indian restaurants the buffets are cheap but the drinks... More

Visited as a group of five on Friday 27th November 2015. Passing by, we stopped here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised! Light and airy inside, the atmosphere was ok, and the food and pricing were good. The toilets were clean! I would definitely visit here again.

Eaten in this restaurant many times at lunchtime and been very happy. Today I took my wife for a birthday meal and we were very shocked to be greeted by a middle aged waiter (normally the staff are younger) with the dirtiest bedraggled clothes I have ever seen. It looked like food had spilled on his waistcoat over many days.... More

We came here by chance, having decided to try the Elephant's Trunk, which, as others have said, was unfortunately closed! Having seen this restaurant as we were looking out for the notorious E.T., we walked by and as the place looked clean and bright, we gave it a try. The service was excellent and friendly. The quality of the food... More

Our takeaway was terrible! The chicken dish had no flavour, spice etc basically tasted like chicken in some Heinz tomato soup. The rice smelt cheesey, naan was cold and cardboardy! Will never visit again, don't waste your money!!!

Went for lunch on New Years Day. The restaurant had only couple dining there. We opted for a set meal for lunch, which was reasonably priced. It offered a starter, one main dish with an option of nan or rice, and a third course of either a sweet or tea/coffee. It was a simple meal, which after Xmas & New... More
