“Slow to arrive and not that impressive when it did.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

We had a varied takeaway from here recently, costing £45+. Not a bad price considering what we had but the delivery took over the 45 minutes to an hour that was promised. The food, when it arrived, was generally ok (but no more than that) though my Chicken Jalfrezi looked nothing like what I've eaten in other Indian restaurants but, who knows, maybe this was the authentic version and the other places had got it wrong? Either way it didn't taste any better than it looked.
I wouldn't personally bother with this place again and would probably revert to a local competitor we've used before, which was much better all round.

“Delicious, but ask for help with the menu from staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Really enjoyed our meal. Waiters were rather absent minded, and we felt slightly uncomfortable at first as we were the only customers in the place. Odd.
Nevertheless, the place filled up and had lots of people coming in for takeaway menu. Food was very nice.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

It's hard to find a decent balti in Cornwall, but the one I had here was lovely, great taste and texture. Good service and a fun atmosphere.
