“Outstanding”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

The choice of dishes is immense, with choices that I have not come across in many other restaurants. The service is swift, friendly and attentive, without being over bearing. I also recommend their sister take away - Polly Indian in Frome at the top of Catherine Hill. Both serve authentic, carefully flavoured meals which leave the palate rejoicing.

“Our favourite Indian”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

My partner & I always go here for Indian, the service is impeccable, the staff are so polite, friendly and efficient. The food is gorgeous, plenty of it, not heavy and it tastes amazing. They're great at recommending things as well if you want to try something different which is what I like to do. The facilities aren't the greatest, it could do with some sprucing up but that doesn't deter from the fact the food is great and excellent value for money. Definitely give it a try and keep going back like us!

“Great food, great service, great value”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Popped here for an impromptu Friday night treat and not disappointed - very friendly welcome, fantastic vegetarian choice of food, really tasty dishes, service not the quickest but then it's nice not to be rushed. The bill came to £40 for two of us including poppadums to start, beer, soft drinks, sides and two main courses (one meat, one veggie) so can't complain at that. And to top it all off they put the food we didn't eat (as the portions are so generous) in a take-out container to take home. All in all a really good meal out.
