The restaurant is located just outside the busy area of paceville. They offer a great menu for only 11.95 and the staff is fast and incredibly friendly. I tried the mild tikka massalaka. It was excellent and I will definetely return to this place! If you like indian food it is an excellent place to visit.

What an amazing place this is for Indian food. This is by far the best Indian I have ever visited, the flavours are incredible. 'Tandoori chicken' is a must as a starter! Service was average.

The food was generally nice and staff are friendly. However, we specifically asked for no beef on our platter but it was still left on. Avoid lamb as a starter as it was very chewy and fatty. The fish is also slimey and tastes cheap.

And found out later that you had to order rice as a side dish for 4.65 Euro. Ye you saw right. Just for plain rice they charge you almost 5 euro. In some places you almost got... More

Visited with our family and grandchildren. We were very warmly welcomed and the service throughout our visit was excellent. We had three poppodoms and a tray of chutney but the poppodoms tasted off, I believe due to being cooked in oil which was past its best. Our grandchildren had Chicken Korma and the adults had Beef do-Piaza and Chicken Jalfrezi... More

I have tried many Indian restaurants in abroad but for this one I can honestly say, was indeed serving the same taste as we have in our India. The quality and taste of the food is really very good.
