Tasteless "Indian" food without a hint of spices. We ordered a takeaway and were super disappointed by the quality of the food. Please stop calling it "Indian" as it is evident you do not know what you are talking about!

Genuinely good Indian food in a great atmosphere. A little bit pricey but worth the treat. Vegan and vegetarian options a-plenty!

We found this Indian restaurant close to hotel so thought we'd give it a try. They don't do Halal food so we went for vegetarian option. The fish dish was disappointing. The veg curry & daal was ok. Was pricey.

A must visit to Indian cuisine on the island. Sauces very well spiced.We had Beef Kadai so good, the Korma Lamb thumbs up biryani rice and Keema Pilao with garlic naan bread. Service impeccable. We will visit again shortly.
