We visited here whilst holidaying at Chessington World of Adventure. Booked online purely based on reviews. The food was by far the best Indian food we have ever had (and I was born in Bradford!), the staff were very friendly and the service was superb.

Everything so colourful and beautifully presented in this immaculate restaurant. They had fine , fresh distinctive flavours and most unusually wild game recipes on their menu. Everything enthusiastcally explained by our waiter. Comfortable, reasonably priced ( we took advantage of a two mains for the...price of one promotion) and every single dish (even the poppadoms!) unlike anywhere else I have experienced We had the Prawm Malai and the lamb, but I want to return to try the boar and guinea fowl dishes! Good vegetarian choices too.More

Just discovered this hidden gem in Chessington. I’m a big foodie and restaurant critic and absolutely loved the food here. I don’t normally write reviews but had to for this one. The presentation was impeccable, the flavours mouthwatering and service friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. What...else would you want from a restaurant. Fine dining so a bit pricey . Worth the visit for a special occasion too.More

Wow, myself and two friends had a wonderful meal here. I had the Prawn Malai which I would highly recommend. The service was absolutely top notch. I will definitely be back, this was my first visit.

Delicious and unusual food although all the usual favourites are also on the menu. Nice quiet dining room even though many of the tables were busy. Very good service and reasonable prices. Parking can be a little tricky but there is a residential neighbourhood behind...the restaurant where you can usually find some spaces. Highly recommended.More

Proper proper proper Indian food , which covers a myriad of cities and regions, within India, in terms of its cuisine. The standard is frankly, exceptional; the gentleman who was working, was both affable and a consummate professional. Mains of Seafood Moily and Lamb Kabuli...Gosht were on another level - sides were superb, along with the mushroom rice and Roti. Fine fine food. A different level, in terms of quality, frankly.More

The most mouthwatering Indian food ever. We havnt been for a while so booked in for a nice family meal. Forgotten how fabulous the food is. How they make the sauces so tasty and meat to tender just amazes me. The Prawn Malia is my...favoirite and the lamb Rogan Josh my husbands. Service impecable as usual. Wish i could afford to eat there every night !More

Hi, we serve mild to hot food. The choices for hot dishes would be Wild boar vindaloo, Lamb rogan gosht and Rara ghost. Please inform your server on the spice level you would prefer. Thank you.

I doubt whether their wild boar vindaloo or pulled pork is Halal?
