At the last minute decided to eat out and let someone else do the dishes! We both decided to try dishes that we had not tried before. When the dishes arrived the food was excellent and served by cheerful and attentive staff. Normally I have a preference when sharing and feel that someone gets the "ok" meal. Not true here... More

We have been a regular here for years. The new owners have been very welcoming and are always pleasant. They have recently changed the menu which looks fantastic. I recently tried the garlic chilli lamb masala and that was amazing. Who would have thought of putting pomegranate seeds on a curry??!!

Although the only 'Indian' restaurant in Sturminster Newton, it is well worth a visit. Food is first rate, staff are friendly and efficient, but not over-attentive. Reasonably priced.

We tried the Wednesday banquet night, the food and service was great, we went early in the evening as we had our five year old daughter with us. Staff were very welcoming to her, and were happy to give us a children's portion for her for half price.
