“Nice, good value food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

While the meals are very nice and great value, it appeared as though the first staff member to serve me for dinner was very new to the business. My wife and I were originally offered a menu at the counter and asked what we wanted to order despite asking for a table for two. This was quickly fixed, however, when another staff member arrived from the kitchen and asked us to choose any table we liked and that he would be over very shortly.

The food, as mentioned above, was great value and very tasty although the kitchen seems to have a love affair with cardamom. The mango laasi order arrived with large pieces of ground cardamom quite visible in it and the lamb korma also had a very strong flavour of cardamom. Toned down a little, both would have been much better but the cardamom just overwhelmed the rest of the dish.

“Great Food and Service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

For a small town the Indian food served here is exceptional. There is a decent selection of curries and the staff are always really friendly and helpful. Try the mixed platter as a starter it's really yummy - best take-away in town!

“Closed but provided food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2013

Arrived at 9 p.m and the town was deserted. We found this place at 9.30 and whilst they had the closed sign due to lack of customers he provided a tasty rogan Josh and prawn curry which was much appreciated
