Brilliant good food, good service. I've not given 5 stars because the place was freezing, however, we ate early and will return cause the food was so good.

Came early before a show at the theatre next door, made welcome and seated quickly. Lovely friendly waitress. A reasonable wait for our food and it was tasty and hot.. Fairly busy even though it was early. Will definately return.

We tried this restaurant while visiting Dumfries based on the reviews we had read. I tried the kebabs for starter which was really nice with a bit of a kick. For main i had buttered chicken which was very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant. Staff were friendly and polite.

Thanks for experiencing the Green chillies and fresh coriander in the Kabab, and then the butter chicken to softened your taste buds. Both the dish and starter is a good combination of variation in the flavors to go for. We look forward to see you soon. kind regards More

I want to make this our Indian carry-out restaurant of choice in Dumfries but I still have some reservations about the dishes that we have consumed in three visits. Goan fish curry had very little fish in it last time for example. Pleasant and friendly staff.

Inside it is quite atmospheric however it is an old building and can at times be quite cool but do not let that put you off.
