Served by several expressionless staff who at every point only acknowledged my partner. Not one of them, gave me any eye contact. Despite my smiling face, I could not encourage one reciprocated smile because they would not look at me. Each time they approached to ask us if we would like to order food or drinks they addressed my boyfriend... More

Food here is always great and service is brilliant--only downside, I reckon for what you get the price is a bit OTT.

What a difference polite, happy and attentive staff can make to a meal. Arrived here on a quiet Monday evening with a colleague. We, in fact were the only people dining. The staff on duty were excellent. The meal for both of us hugely enjoyable. The curry was slightly mild for my liking but still very nice. Rice was plentiful... More

Visited as part of a 30 strong birthday party. Service was a little slow but food was worth the wait. Great staff, friendly and efficient. Party continued in the function room upstairs which although a little dated an some of the furniture could do with updating was excellent and staff continue to excel.

We ordered a takeaway from here on Friday night and were very disappointed. The food was cold, and simply not very nice - my husband and I had different dishes (biryani - not sure how you can mess that up - and chilli chicken) but neither of us ate more than a few mouthfuls which was a complete waste of...

After a day out in Margate spied this wonderful Asian restaurant on our way home to Sevenoaks. Nestled in a new development of businesses and housing it was packed with diners when we arrived. Most helpful staff found us a table for four to include room for a 6 month old. Service was excellent with a wide variety on the... More

Unfortunately the food is not freshly made, rather it is pre-cooked (not sure if on site or off). I know this as I asked which dishes can come meat and dairy free. This is usually very easy to find in an Indian restaurant, especially one with so many veggie options (lentil deal, potato dishes etc) but was informed ALL dishes... More
