Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice setting by the river, pleasant staff and good service. A limited menu but aromatic, served hot and appetising. Sadly both our choices were very over salted so maybe not the place for those who doubt like heavily salted food.

Lovely food and lovely atmosphere. We have been there plenty of times and it’s always great. You have the view of the Kingston river so it’s perfect on a summer night

We went for lunch and enjoyed the experience. It was quiet, it being lunchtime, midweek. The menu offers both a selection of Indian dishes and Chinese dishes. We shared a starter: the spicy potato dish and a samosa chaat. Both delicious. Very spicy, very tasty....We shared a lamb rogan Josh, rice and a smoked brinjal dish. Excellent. Our waitress Mitisha was very attentive and looked after us well. Thank you.More

Delicious food all round ! Service was brilliant - really fast and didn’t wait long at all for any of the courses. Cocktails are great, and views of the river are of course an added bonus. Will be visiting again very soon !

Had dinner here with a friend, got a walk-in table with no issues. The food was really tasty and at a reasonable price too. The service was great - our waitress Matisha was friendly and attentive. I'm surprised the restaurant wasn't busier on a Saturday...night, perhaps due to being a bit out of the centre but it was still a nice location by the river. I'd definitely go back if I'm in the area again!More

Booked for 8 pm on a Thursday night and arrived on time to be told before we had even sat down that the kitchen was closing at 8.30 so we needed to order everything at once. The restaurant was fairly busy but there were only...two members of staff who seemed hassled. We decided not to order starters but did order poppadoms which did not arrive until the other food. The food arrived about 9 pm. It was delicious. Best Indian food in the area. As soon as we had finished we were asked to pay the bill as they were cashing up. It was only 9.30. We were not offered dessert or drinks. Cannot give it less than 4 stars because the food was outstanding but the service was the worst we could remember experiencing.More

I had the butter chicken with garlic naan as a side dish. The food was rich, delicious and pure goodness. The place is clean, servers well groomed and professional, and the experience was wonderful. I’ve been to many Indian restaurants, but I have to say...this is some of the best I’ve tasted. Sushant, my server, was very polite and gave me a very good service. Definitely a place to visit if you’re in the vicinity.More
