Great food, super friendly staff we had the tandoori chicken, dosa, spicy vegetables and biryani rice. All great add a chesse naan and your set.

Rather disappointed with the quality of food, especially after all the good ratings. The lamb shank biryani was a big let down. It was so small with hardly any meat on it. Curry was salty. Chicken tikka was mediocre. Won't be visiting again.

I fail to understand this restaurants rating on TripAdvisor and the recommendation in the Lonely Planet book. We went here for lunch and frankly, it was awful. Tried the famous cheesy naan which was true to its word but didn’t taste great. The butter chicken...and gobi were too greasy and devoid of any flavour. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to anyone. Curry house based in Lot 409 is far superior , better tasting , cleaner and cheaper than this restaurant.More

The restaurant was packed, but the queued quite fast. We ordered the popular Naan cheese, it tasted amazing, it was filled with a lot of cheese, and the cheese was very stretchy.

I guess you can’t please everyone looking at the reviews. We loved it. Great efficient team working together. The speed of service in crazy fast & the place is busy. We had 5 drinks, 2 tikka masalas, 2 rices, cheeses Nan bread & popadom fries...all for 82r or £14. You simply can’t moan about that. The food was excellent. Did find the tikka masala didn’t come with a sauce so it was more of a chicken tikka, but is was very moist & well cooked.More

It’s not an Indian restaurant basically. We went there as wife wanted to eat vegetarian. Not worth - their big Naan although fresh felt like eating rubber and Alu Gobhi veggie was a Joke. Dosa platter was nice though. And these guys don’t accept credit...card. Not worth.More

Having read good reviews we thought best to give it a try. Typical quick serve at side of road and as advertised pretty busy. Service was prompt and polite. Chicken tikka wasn’t as expected taste wise but cooked ok. Lamb rogan josh was served on...a plate with a piece that fell off the bone so cooked well. Cheese naan was very cheesy as advertised. Garlic naan was a bit dry. Washed down with mango lassie thou do no complaints but we couldn’t rave about it.More

Amazing food, so flavourful and tasty! Staff was very friendly and happy to give recommendations. You cannot miss the cheese naan, and we absolutely loved the chicken biryani, carrot thosai and aloo gobi There was a queue for most of the time we were there,...but it moved quite fast - worth the waitMore

The popularity of the restaurant is reflected by how crowded the place is at any given time. Be prepared to wait and the food you get will be worth the wait. Try the Appam set and the Garlic Cheese and if you are able to...ignore your guilt of over-eating, there are always the Banana Leaf Beriyani dish and Banana Fritters topped with overflowing Cheese .. never mind .. there is always time later to go jogging or hitting the gym. When in Kuching, Sarawak, look up for this restaurant ..More

Amazing tasting food, ranging from curries and biryanis to superb sides. The price of the food is very reasonable too compared to other restaurants in the local area. This place gets very busy from early in the evening (for good reason), so make sure to...plan your time here. Service is quick an friendly. Highly recommend!More

Really good Indian/Sri Lanka food. They also have vegetarian options. The cheese naan is really cheesy. The staff and the owner are very kind and helpful. At night you might have to wait for a table but it is worth it.

The cheese naan is of course the first thing you should order. We took the Sri-Lankan set and a few drinks, it was really good.

At £1-2 a dish, this is a bargin. Expect basic good Indian food. Staff were v friendly and service quick. Tandoori chicken was cooked perfectly (& dyed red as it always is by the spices it's marinated in). Lassi was nice, and the fresh made...Masala Chai excellent. Naan was good, but the Thosai breads a bit boring (even with dips). Toilets were clean (as was the place in general)More
