“Terriable”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

We went for a romantic meal whist on our honeymoon. The resturant was near our hotel so we thought we would give it a try. All began well, the waiter took our order and brought our wine. I, as a strict vegertarian, ordered meat n fish free starter and main, my husband ordered chicken. When our starters turnned up they looked good, i began to eat mine but to my horrer mine contained meat! We checked both meals and they both were meat. When we spoke to the waiter, he was very rude and argued that we had ordered 2 chicken starters but eventualy he grudgingly changed mine. I just picked at it for fear that there would be more meat in it. When the mains came out i was unable to eat mine as i was worried about it having meat too. When we payed we explained to the waiter that we weren't happy and asked if we could have a discount due to their mistake and my spoilt meal. They refused and threatened to get the police on us (this i feel is way over the top and terriable customer service). We payed and were escorted from the building.
My advice is to avoid this place if you dont eat meat or fish

“What no rice and naan......”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Loved the atmosphere and food but the guys let themselves down by forgetting the rice and naan on the order which was a shame as the rest of the food was really good. They couldn't apologise enough but really this shouldn't happen

“Best Indian in the bay!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Amazing tasting food, service was good, ambiance inside the restaurant is relaxed and generally very nice. Well priced and portion sizes are large. Wouldn't go anywhere else for an Indian!!
