A tiny little curry house on the beach front in Palma nova that produces great curry. Very friendly and helpful staff, reasonably priced and they do a set menu to eat in or take away.

Good value and good food. Friendly waiter. Good portions and fresh ingredients. None of the dishes were hot but really good flavour. Only negative is that a couple of the poppadoms were very greasy.
