I currently live in Letterkenny Monday to Friday for work and have fallen into the habit of getting a takeaway from here at least once a fortnight and sometimes once a week. I have tried a good variety of the chicken dishes and have never been disappointed. Standouts for me are the tandoori chicken appetizer, the onion salad and sauces... More

Was without doubt the best Indian restaurant in town, but of late has started to slip and is not up to its previous standard. I usually order a takeaway, so can only comment on that. Portions have gotten very small. The quality of the chicken is not as good as previously. If you order for delivery...be prepared to wait. Very... More

We stopped for a bite of lunch and enjoyed their two course, lunch special. For €12.95 we had a starter and a main. I had the onion bhaji (gluten free - yeah!!) and my husband had the chicken pakora (a bit dry). Then we both had lamb - a madras, earthy and hot, with a side of naan bread and... More

Ate here last night and found the food just ok and the portions quite small. What really spoilt the experience for me was the attitude and sheer rudeness of the older guy (manager?) who took our order. We requested some poppadoms to get us going and a bit more time to look at the menu and he told us that... More

My husband had a takeaway here (5/3/2016) and it was a disaster. We had previously ordered food from here a couple of months ago and my food was so bad I did not eat mine. So my husband thought he would give it another chance to see if our last experience was a one off - unfortunately it wasn't. On... More
