“Good value for money; just don't take a large group!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

I have eaten at this restaurant several times in the past, either as part of a couple or a small group.
Last night, I took a party of 29 (booked about 2 months in advance) to eat in the upstairs section. We had exclusive use of the area, which was great as we had an after-dinner speaker. However, after someone had taken initial drinks orders, we were left with ONE person serving us the food. This meant that there was a 45 minute gap between the first table receiving their main course and the last table receiving theirs! Someone from my table went downstairs to get us more drinks because we were unable to order them from our table (given the lack of waiting staff) and she noted that there were 3 members of staff downstairs apparently standing around doing nothing!!
The food was hot and tasty as always and really good value but I will NOT be returning with a large group.

“Excellent Food At Excellent Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

We like many on this site have eaten here for many years and recommend it to our family and friends.We have always had good food and good service and quite frankly find some of the comments on this site somewhat confusing as regards the negativity of some peoples comments.We have tried other indian restaurants in Rainham and have found this to be the best on both quality and price.

“Our regular haunt.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

We have eaten at this restaurant many times over a number of years. We keep trying other restaurants but always return to this one. Why? Well the staff are always welcoming and the food, while not presented as well as other restaurants, is always hot, plentiful and very tasty. As another reviewr has said, It is the best value in Rainham

“The best Indian in Rainham”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013 via mobile

We eat at this restaurant at least once a month and have to say it's the best value in Rainham

The Thursday special menu of a starter, main, rice and side dish is great value and the quality of the curry is good

Service is quick and the staff are always friendly

Take always are also good and not a long wait for free delivery

We have recommended the restaurant to our friends who now use too!
