Great restaurant, friendly attentive staff happy to vary menu to suit individual tastes. It was full when we were there, glad we booked in advance, but the layout is such that you don't feel packed in or rushed or under any pressure to do anything but enjoy the really tasty food they offer, if you are into seafood you will be amazed at the two pages of seafood options. good fresh tasting food, nowhere like some of the heavy indiscriminate tasting food you sometimes get in curry restaurants, my only wish....there was more and it was nearer where i live. thanks to the staff for making our anniversary dinner with friend's such a good experience, we will be back.

Delicious! Have only experienced the takeaway service and that's the best we've experienced. They also take card payments at the door, so convenient.

I have to say, as a somewhat Indian cuisine expert this was pretty damn good. The food was absolutely A1, the service A1, the restaurant A1. Could not fault any of it. Chappati so cooked to perfection, the fish curry awfully good without the half a kilo of onion of some establishments, the beer, wine, everything else we ate absolutely close to perfect. I used the word Brilliant not lightly having ate in the Southall Brilliant as recommended by Gordon Ramsey, this was just as good for food. Brilliant probably topped it in presentation in my book,, but in Portsmouth, this is a gem.

A frequent visitor here for many years, quality never varies and staff are always friendly and helpful. Menu is extensive and they are quite happy to make variations to suit your taste. Decor is a bit '80s but don't let that put you off.

What a great curry house-wish we lived nearer! We like fish curries and this is a great example.
Had a halibut coconut/chilli dish which was superb.Also had a chicken signature dish which was as good.Staff were excellent in helping us choose the dishes to our liking.The menu is extensive with normal curries but we recommend you try something different.
