My husband and I dined here on Saturday, the restaurant is just off Porotobello High street. We often get takeaway food from here and occasionally dine in. The meal was great. We had the poppadoms, mango chutney, lime pickle and onion salad, followed the Chicken/ mixed pakora. I had the grilled mixed Tandoori and my husband the sonali chicken -... More

Had nothing but issues after ordering a meal. I phoned the restaurant and wasn't given help so had to drive to the restaurant and confront them. Was given nothing but rude replies and attitude when asking for this to be resolved and handed the awful food back but was refused a refund or a receipt to say that the food... More

I'm very disappointed to read this review. However I would like to put some context around this after speaking with the manager on the evening in question. My understanding is you placed an order on the Just Eat website. The delivery which was dispatched was the food that was ordered on the website. Regrettably you felt that the description of... More

5 of us went for a celebration of Jason's birthday and each and every one of us had a glorious meal. Freshly cooked to order, it is well worth waiting for. Drinks and service 1st class as always. Never fails to satisfy! Cannot recommend highly enough.

Some of the food was excellent, especially the tender lamb. However my niece was disappointed at how little cheese there was in the cheese and onion naan bread. I was aware of the restaurant habit of pushing poppadoms on you and wanted to refuse. I was overruled which turned out to be a good thing as our starters didn't arrive... More

I wrote recently how dissapointed I was with this restaurant continuously forgetting things with my deliveries . If you have read there response it states they are confused how that happens as they repeat back your order . This insinuates it's my fault . When was the last time you phoned any Indian restaurant and ordered say a veg. Pakora... More

What fantastic, authentic and wonderfully tasty Indian food. Service superb, ambience sublime and even the new Goa lager was highly appropriate! Cannot compliment Saeed and staff enough. Not just highly recommended -if you enjoy Indian food, you'll not do better!

Food lovely. Good size portions and really helpful waiters. Chicken was a little dry in the dishes that my Girlfriend and I had. Think they need to review the prices on the drinks. We don't drink alcohol but at £3.50 a pint of lime and soda might need to rethink that!! Normally a maximum of £1.50 a pint everywhere else.... More
