The food is fantastic and incredibly tasty. It is very busy on a Saturday night but we enjoyed our dinner and will be back.

Road to Goa Indian restaurant has been a St Ives favourite for more than a decade. It is a non licensed restaurant situated in a small group of shops across the road from Hassle Park. Next door is an IGA where wine and other alcoholic beverages can be bought. Seating is both inside and out. The restaurant can be cramped... More

This restaurant is always packed, obviously because it is fantastic!! The food is so delicious and flavoursome.. We had the soft shell crab (you will never find this dish at an Indian restaurant) and the Tandoori chicken (made differently in comparison to other Indian restaurants) for Entree. The beef vindaloo and Goan fish curry plus rice and naan for the... More

We had takeaway from this restaurant last week for the first time having only just moved to the area. We placed our order on line which was easy. We had the food delivered to us. We received an SMS informing us of the ETA for our meal and confirming same. The meal did arrive in that time frame. The presentation... More

Best food. Loved the food. The starters are amazing. We shared two main courses. They were delicious. A bit pricey but worth every penny. Indian food at its best.

A wonderful welcome from Marcus started our evening off well. He showed us to our table and asked if we were celebrating anything (which we were - my husband's belated birthday dinner with my brother). He was attentive - water, menus, ideas. We (3) of us shared: Chicken Xacuti - a Goan speciality consisting of ground poppy and cumin seeds,... More

Visited on a Saturday night around 6:30 pm. Lucky to arrive this early as half an hour in, this place really starts to get inundated by the takeaway orders and the room service begins to fall apart. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong at all with any of the waiters. They are well trained, courteous and know the... More

This restaurant is worth the drive for a delicious Indian meal with a difference. The food here is not like your normal high street Indian but is quite exceptional. It appears to be a family run business that has been around for many years and has lots of local support. Highly recommend this place!

The food is very nice but the portion sizes are way too small for what is being charged for a main course. Tiny serving dishes with very little meat and a lot of sauce. Even the rice portions were incredibly small (no excuse as rice is so cheap to buy). We had five main courses between four people and it... More

If you love Indian food and you want a relxed local atmosphere with great owner led team then this is the place ! We love sitting down and also just grabbing takeaways! Be warned, it's very popular and you'll have to book, walking in and just hoping to get a table may disappoint you. But if you get lucky enough... More
