“Very tasty food and great service! ”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

We had a family meal here last night and it was certainly one of the nicest Indian restaurants I've been to in Northern Ireland. There were 7 of us and we were all very impressed. We have been to several Indian restaurants and have even been travelling to India and all of us enjoyed it. The waiters were also friendly and welcoming. I noticed it seemed quite busy for a Wednesday night, so it's good to see a deserving restaurant doing well! Would definitely recommend this place.

“Has lost it just a bit!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We have been here on numerous occasions but on being there just a few nights ago we found it has lost the edge a bit! Service was dreadful - we arrived at the restaurant at 7.15pm and we were getting our starter (after we had to ask for it again) at 8.15pm, having been told there was a mistake in the ktichen, then it was another 20-25 mins after we had finished our starter until the main arrived and it was just ok - could have been warmer which didn't help and the lack of chicken in my main was very noticeable. We were told the kitchen were under pressure - I say don't take the bookings if your kitchen cant cope. We were customers and the pressure in the kitchen - sorry but that's not our problem. Please spruce up your service & your food just a bit cause you are a good restaurant when firing on all cylinders!

“nice but cold”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

ordered a takeaway and collected it myself so no reason for the food to be cold. we had lamb rogan josh with naan, chips and pilau plus two onion bhajis. the curry and pilau cant be faulted, really lovely. same with the lamb, absolutely huge chunks of decent meat. the chips were very greasy and the bhajis were tasteless but we were given mint yogurt and tomato chilli dips so used these to spice the bhajis up abit.

“A Galgorm Secret.”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Was unaware that there was an Indian restaurant in Galgorm. Found it while browsing Tripadvisor so decided to give it a try after reading the glowing reviews. Was not disappointed the food, service were of a very high standard, will definitely be making a return visit.
