And the price for the evening was really good... More

Restaurant freezing cold. Gas fire directed away from diners. Red wine freezing cold. Food mediocre, nothing special. Would not rush back.

Possibly the worst curry I've ever eaten. Chicken tikka bright red & cover in a thick layer of oil & the smallest pieces of skewed chicken with no flavour at all. Chicken Jalfrezi was tasteless with hardly a hint of chilli quite frankly a pile of brown stuff in a bowl!

Good food, in a modern, all food on plain white plates and containers, enjoyed very much, it was just a quick stop with a friend before a concert, but would definitely recommend it, not too expensive 30 pounds for 2 people, poppadoms, and one main and rice each with 2 cokes,

We had our office Christmas party here and what an amazing time we had from start to finish.

Apart from the bog standard dishes there are some interesting ones too, plus an excellent fish menu. Plus really comfortable seats, polite staff and good food, it's a winner. 😋

Biriyani was oily and flavourless and a rather rude delivery driver. Not had the chance to try the restaurant out. But wouldn't recommend takeaway from here as they seem to have a busy restaurant.

Came to Margate with my partner on a mid week getaway from London, but hadn't realised everywhere shuts extremely early on weekdays! Luckily this restaurant was open and the food was genuinely excellent..the tandoori dishes were particularly good - I'd happily come here again.

It has been a few months since we last visited this restaurant, and the food was still fantastic. We booked a round table for four and was not disappointed, the service and the food was great with some very nice complementary additions. The restaurant is set in the old town of Margate and would recommend a visit, you will not... More

Not a huge fan of hot spicy food, but was treating my sister so decided to go for it, so glad I did. Food was tasty, service was excellent. Even after I told them I prefer milder flavours. They were very accomadating.
