We ate here on our first night and I loved the place, it had nice decor and the service was fantastic and very fast. We ordered a few dishes and were happy with all of them and the price was great. Definatley worth a visit.

“As cheap as chips - good curry”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We have eaten curries all around the world, and for a cheapie, we enjoyed it. The décor is rough and ready and a bit of a shambles, but they accommodated my strange dietary needs - a dairy free veggo. The portions were large, and we were given a plastic box to take the rest home, and heated up, the next night, it was delicious, as it had matured. We had a sweet Spanish waitress, and she was lovely. There was plenty of seating and for a wholesome cheapie - try it!! Perhaps the owners are trying to get going and start a business - its worth hanging in for them. Things will get sorted!! They didn't serve tamarind sauce with the Samosas, which is classic - only a yoghurt dip which was inappropriate. Give them time!!

“49th Birthday dinner”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our Indian Meal, the service was good and we were entertained by some young lads outside playing authentic music which added to our enjoyment. The cost was comparable to a good indian restaurant just about anywhere.

Reviewed 7 August 2014

Visited with family while on holiday, found the food to be pretty average and the service poor, with some of the staff unable to understand what we were trying to order due to a lack of understanding of english. Wouldn't visit again!

“I think...the only Indian Restaurant in the Town”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Location : Very much in central of PD. I found out the location on google maps.

Ambience : 7/10

Comfort/Tables : 8/10

Housekeeping/Cleaning/ Crockery-9/10

Service : 9/10

Staff: 10/10, Chef's & his wife gives personal attention.

Food : 8/10 We had Shahi Paneer & Butter Chicken.

Quality Vs Price : 8/10.

Drinks / Bar : 8/10 ( Price- OK)

Payment - It was on cash when we visited this restaurant in July

Others - Saw many tables occupied there during evening hours.
If you are non-vegetarian try chicken dishes. Avoid paneer (Indian cheese items ) & green salad. Indian Breads like Naan & Rotis are really good.
