We live locally and regularly order takeaway from this restaurant. The curry is always great and the service is too. For example, whilst waiting the staff have given me a free drink, or given a sweet to my daughter. Nice touches. The only thing stopping this restaurant from getting 5/5 is the fact they don't deliver. If they did, we... More

First time visit, food was very very tasty! Everything was great. There was a bit of a wait for the food but the quality made up for this. The only real downside is that the interior could do with a bit of a redecoration, very tired and shabby, it would make this place so much better! Will be returning!

A lovely meal as always (We have been three times over a couple of months) Sadly they were very busy when we went the other day and maybe were a little stretched but was still a wonderful meal as normal and we shall be returning.

One of the things we always do when visiting the UK is to go to a curry house and this one was recommended by our hotel. The service was a little slow but as we were in no hurry, it didn't matter. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Can certainly recommend to future diners!

We rang the restaurant to order a take away for collection on a Saturday night for 4 people. We were told it would be an 1 1/2 before we could collect it which was a bit strange. Once we collected the food it was of a good standard. Not sure why it took that long to cook as the restaurant... More

Great Indian restaurant with great views across the Weald! Although there is a reasonable amount of parking, this place can get very busy! Restaurant is a little old fashioned but clean. We have been coming hear for years and the food has always been delicious and ample portion sizes. The service is good even when waiting for a takeaway.

We have visited the restaurant many times and we are never disappointed. The staff are so friendly and welcoming with a real eye for detail, often missed in many other restaurants. The food is always superb and the staff take time to explain the different dishes, so you can try something new with confidence. Thank you for another lovely evening,... More

We arrived mid-week without a reservation but were soon found a table. Throughout our visit staff were very attentive and polite. We ordered a selection of curries and sides and were surprised at the generous portions we were served and were unable to eat it all up. The dishes themselves all tasted very good and were reasonably priced. The only... More

We ordered a Take Away for 100 people! The restaurant owner was brilliant- helping with everything we needed and a promise that if we ran out of anything to call him and he would provide more. We didn't- there was plenty of delicious food for everyone. People are still talking about it one year on. Many thanks

Thank carolbigg
