We ate here once about five years ago and then had two takeaways. before deciding we were not at all impressed and did not return until last evening. Various friends had said it was good so we tried it for a takeaway. The interior does not look very inspiring but the welcome was warm. The menu is quite extensive with some chef's specials and they swopped chicken in one dish for king prawn for me. The tarka dahl was excellent. We love this so always tend to measure Indian restaurants by the excellence or otherwise of their tarka dahl! To reassure though I can say all the food was excellent and we look forward to returning soon. Prices seem very reasonable too.

As most others are saying, the food here is pretty good, and certainly better than the average Indian restaurant. Interior a bit dull, service not that gracious, but the best food choice in Knighton, and for miles around. Very busy.

How would you expect to be treated if you discovered that your tandoori chicken was uncooked at the bone? Profuse apology and a full refund? Not here!!!! We received an indifferent shrug as the dish was whisked away! When we pursued the issue we were told "well you were getting a group discount anyway"! With extra pressure we got the price of the dish in question deducted from the bill, but this took some negotiating! I would say go to another Indian Restaurant.... but sadly there are none for miles around!

We ate here on 2 occasions whilst on holiday in the area, based on trip advisor reviews.

Great authentic food, generous portions and good service. We ate from the meal deal menu - excellent value - £12.75 each for 4 courses served Sunday, Monday and Thursday. Also took our own wine.

Glad we found this place. Highly recommended and would definitely eat here again if in the area.

We have been frequenting this restaurant for several years.
I have yet to be disappointed!
The menu offers a wide choice, to suit everyone.
If you like your curries a little hotter, they are happy to oblige.
The owner is usually present, assisting with the service. He is very friendly and accommodating.
