“Not Good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

During an overnight visit to Lyme Regis we decided to eat at this Indian restaurant. We were really disappointed in the food.

The service was fine and the restaurant was clean, although the layout of the tables was cramped due to the configuration of the room.

Unfortunately the food was very mediocre ( aloo ghobi, mixed veg. curry ) and the CTM ( chicken tikka masala ) was absolutely the worst we have ever eaten, in fact we couldn't eat it. It was sweet and nasty and had obviously been made with some sort of vivid red food colouring. We have eaten Indian food in many different countries and this has to be the worst we have ever come across.

We found the prices ( even for England ) exceptionally high considering the amount of food on offer, even a bottle of still water ( 1 litre ) was nearly 4 pounds.

We would not eat here again.

“Excellent food and service in new Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

Although we live nearby, we hadn't visited the restaurant until this week. The food was excellent and the menu had a good variety of dishes to choose from. The staff were friendly and service was efficient. We will definitely visit again and use the take away. A new local favourite!

“Excellent food and great value!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

While we were staying near to Lyme Regis we came across this Indian restaurant. It was very clean inside probably because the restaurant had only been open for less than two weeks. The Taff were very friendly and the food was excellent.

We didn't realise that you could take your own drink in so its worth doing that should you decide to go here.

Well worth a visit!!

“Great food service needs attention!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013 via mobile

Excellent meal here but service was very slow, ended up not getting the starters we ordered but the main meals were amazing, worth waiting for. The restaurant was very busy being bank holiday weekend and as our table was tucked around the corner I think we got overlooked. The waiter was so apologetic and even knocked some money off our bill. Food was just excellent, just need to sort out service!
