“Best curry ever!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I have been searching for years for a good curry meal. I found it here. Unfortunately, it's thousands of miles away from my home in Oregon. So I guess I'll just have to plan another trip to be in Nirvana. Good food, good service, good time.

“Not bad at all, reasonably impressed - I'll be back ;-)”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Arrived at 7pm on a Tuesday night and got a table straight away (which was lucky as one hour later the place was packed to the rafters with a small queue waiting to be seated!).

I went for the "Vegetarian Set Meal" at £16 and a pint of Cobra. The Veggie set meal comprised a poppadum, some chutneys (mango, chopped onion and the yellow yoghurt), a mixed set of starters (onion bhajee, potato vada, some curried veg and something else) and a main course of three good bowls of various veggie curries (saag, potato and some curried onion concoction), naan bread, coffee and ice-cream/kulfi. My mate went for a chicken tikka starter and the lamb biryani.

Food was very good and served in hot bowls/dishes; very enjoyable, tasty and filling. Worth a vist on this showing.

Likes
+ Really nice veggie set meal
+ Good portion sizes
+ Tasty food, some options not on standard Indian menus
+ Reasonable pricing


Dislikes
- Service a little slow
- Lacks ambience

“Best tandoori in town”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

I've tried a few curry houses in Swindon but this is by far the best. Food is always first class, whether eating in or take away. Waiters are very friendly and new dining area upstairs is excellent . Great value for money, you won't be disappointed ;)

“Running and nothing special ”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Asiana beats this hands down. Quality isn't there any more and the curry was runny... Both of them. Shame these Indians don't more effort. It seems to be common place to serve rubbish nowadays

“It be okay ... But ...!”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Many restaurants tried and tasted in Swindon, especially Old Town.
Hmm, this one has to be average. The menu and different dishes are nice, but, there are better restaurants offering the same dishes in the area of Old Town.
The restaurant is modern, fresh and clean and service staff a plenty. However, the service was slow and drinks turning up at the end of a meal did not go down to well. (We did chase up twice)

The final bill was a little higher than other similar restaurants in the area.

This was for a business evening out on a Thursday. We all agreed it was an ok meal, but we would not visit again. Time and money will be spent elsewhere.
