Why going for a curry in Bruges? Dunno, seemed like a good idea at the time: the really good places were super-busy and a lot of the rest in Bruges city centre is a bit of a tourist trap. So why not. The food was nice enough, service too. Lacked a bit atmosphere. Everything was fine, but not comparable with indian restaurants in the UK.

The food was excellent, hot and spicy! Plenty of choice on the menu. Service was superb and it was the best meal of the whole four-day stay.

The restaurant is very nice and cosy inside with modern and stylish decor. The food was excellent along with the service and price. Plenty of local beers available to accompany the vast menu it has to offer. I would definately visit again!!

Maybe I'm used to the lovely curry houses in Cardiff and Birmingham, but this was seriously lacking and for the money was a disappointment. Cumin seed infused poppadoms were fine, but the mint sauce was lumpy and they'd added a chili of some kind to it, which was a bit strange.

I had my usual tandoori dish, which came out sizzling, but the chicken clearly hadn't been marinated as it was a bit insipid looking and not as flavoursome as you'd expect from a tandoori dish. It came with a sauce that was bland and no lemon squeezer... I know this is a small point, but I don't particularly want to have to squeeze lemon with my hands. Again, the strange mint sauce. My boyfriend said that the madras was nice enough, but nothing special.

All the above would be fine, there are lots of 'just okay' curry houses, but their prices were really high and the food didn't justify it, (just over 50 Euros for poppodoms, two mains and a drink each). I was expecting something quite special but it was a disappointment.

I've given three stars overall however as they seemed to be nice people and provided a good service. Toilets were clean, etc.

Food here was ok. Rice, chicken and onion bhaji we had were all very nice but the main dishes tasted really bland and had very little flavour. Also toilets were a joke. Things hanging off walls, dirty, and kitchen roll on basin to wipe hands on. I know you go for food not toilets but they really were bad. One party of 4 actually walked out without ordering after seeing them.
