We think this is the best Indian in Yarmouth, not that that's saying a lot unfortunately. The decor is bright and clean, a little too bright for our tastes but at least there are no dingy corners where you can't be sure. We went last night and sadly were the only people there. Service was attentive and friendly, but not... More

Decided to come here instead of our usual curry place and what an inspired choice it turned out to be!! I am avoiding dairy at the moment and when I mentioned this to the waiter he immediately had suggestions of things I could have. The food when it arrived, not a long wait, was lovely. Hot, flavoursome and big portions... More

We should have known what this restaurant would be like as soon as we walked through the door There was no atmosphere and two large television screens play Indian videos very loudly. The waiter jumped on us so quickly we hadn't even time to settle in our seats. I very disappointed with my meal. Starters were ok on the small... More

Excellent food. Very well prepared cooked and presented. Extremely reasonable prices. Very polite and attentive waiters. There was even a fire work display on the front opposite the restaurant. I highly recommend this Indian restaurant.

We arrived at around 8pm and the place was buzzing we were not sure that we should have booked but the waiter quickly found us a table. Prices are very reasonable and the chicken tikka starter we had arrived promptly and was... More

What a great place for food. Although they didn't have the wine we wanted and the service was a bit to keen to clear up the food was fantastic. The food was one of the nicest we have had for a long time. The chicken melted in the mouth and my partner said the lamb was perfect. Waiter too keen... More

Delighted that our favourite Indian has reopened (longest roof repair in history lol!) And even more delighted that the food & service was excellent as always. Celebrating our 30th anniversary we certainly picked the right place to go!
