We pre booked a table for the 4 of us for my Dads birthday. We were told they only had 8:30 which was fine as we were going to the pub before-hand. When we arrived at 8:25 we were offered drinks and were asked politely to wait over in the corner. It got to 8:40 and we started to look... More

Well thats how it felt. We booked a table for 2, we were offered drinks and pomperdoms straight away, they took a while take our order. The food was lovely and can not beaten. But then our plates were taken and 2 chocolates appeared. Then we were just asking about the lack of indian icecream, our bill arrived, we were... More

I will not be going back. The food was pretty good but the service was hopeless bordering on rude. When we arrived it was very quiet but service was extremely slow and was much worse as evening progressed and tables filled. Worse than the lateness was the offhand manner of most of the staff including the lady who was possibly... More

Unsure why this restaurant gets such good reviews? Terrible service,unenthusiastic staff and inattentive staff. Food-starters-below average and meat samosas were definitely not fresh-couldn't eat more than a mouthful. We had one good main dish out of 8,and that was the tandoori prawns,of which you only got 4 for a main!! Definitely wouldn't recommend and won't be back!

We popped in last night for a meal having booked a table about twenty minutes earlier. On getting there we were virtually ignored for a couple of minutes before being seated. Starters arrived quickly but the mains took pretty much an hour to turn up albeit the restaurant was almost full. Sadly the curry was bland and tasteless- portion size... More

Went here as a family before my son went back to University. Whilst the food is good you get the feeling that you are being fleeced - they try to serve you larger drinks and when they realise that you are not ordering a lot of alcohol you go down the pecking order - we were in there for over...

After reading on Tripadvisor as a recommended Curry restaurant, we took up the challenge. And found a clean ,bright airy restaurant, you could say we were unfortunate as the night we chose it was very quiet and so no real hubbub, but the plus side we could hear each other without shouting, had a very pleasant meal , tasting freshly...

Arrived this evening for a pre-booked table. Waited in the doorway until acknowledged and were then shown to our table. Our drinks order was wrong - a large glass of wine arrived despite having ordered a small. Unfortunately I suspect that this is a regular stunt as the restaurant tried this the last time I ate here several years ago.... More

By far the best curry house in Eastbourne and not to be missed. Good selection of curries and wines and the staff are on the ball. We cannot wait to return.

This is the second time I have been here and wanted a good curry for my birthday meal, it didn't disappoint. To start I had the lamb memo which was delicious succulent and lovely flavours. For the main I had chicken tikka jalfrazei this again was beautifully flavoured with tender chicken. There was also a lovely selection of wines to... More
