As there's only one "curry house" in Ramsey and I like my curry, it's just as well this one is OK. Not perfect mind, but certainly OK.

Location is handily in the centre of the town and as the main street takes less than ten minutes to walk along, you're never too far away.

There is no drinks licence. You can of course bring your own (at no charge) and there are a couple of supermarkets nearby or even an off licence which has pre-chilled beers. Alternatively, the Britannia pub is right outside and you can get your beers from the pub and bring them into the restaurant. Make sure you bring the glasses back though!

The menu includes most of the old favourites, plus one or two surprises and some house specials.

I would normally start with a chicken tikka, but there's a nice garlic crab starter too or why not try morcha (chilli stuffed with cream cheese then breaded and fried).

My preferred main is a dish they call Naga Jolokia which is a fiery chicken dish. Their chetinadh is however very good too. If you ask nicely, they'll even make a chilli naan which is great for hot heads!!!

On Sunday there's a buffet night which gives a mixed started, selection of mains plus rice and naan for a fixed price. Mains are self service buffet.

A recent introduction has brough a small number of thai dishes to the menu. I've not had these so can't comment.

On the whole, the food is fine. Portion size is fine although the ratio of meat to other ingredients in the main courses is a little on the low side.

Not a culinary highlight of our journey to the British isles. Overdone almost burnt tandoor mixed grill lacked flavour but my dining companion said her biriyani was slightly better & she enjoyed the accompanying sauce. Friendly and helpful staff buoyed the 'experience', hence an average rating all told.

Bad points first. It looks unprepossessing on the outside and is a bit gloomy inside. With that out of he way, the rest is all good. The food is excellent and the service friendly. In particular, it has a good choice of vegetarian dishes and an imaginative menu with plenty of alternatives to the Indian cuisine standards. They also have something else that's rare for Indian restaurants in general; sensible portion sizes so that for once myself and partner had room for a dessert. This was lucky because otherwise we'd have missed out on some of the best kulfi I've tasted.

Summary. An unexpected gem, especially if you're struggling to find interesting vegetarian food on the Isle of Man.
