A friend and I went into this haunt of hers and I have to say it was a delight. Very friendly service and the meal was absolutely delicious. So easy to eat and the ambiance was perfect after a very tiring drive down to Budleigh.

The restaurant is clean and tidy and the staff are polite and attentive. Service was first rate, however, the food wasn't the best. The lamb was very tough, there wasn't a great deal of it, mainly sauce which was very red in colour. The sauce...More

I've had a meal here a number of times over the years when visiting nearby on business. The service is very good, the choice of food and drinks similarly so. I cant fault it.

We visited the restaurant for dinner on Saturday. The food was quite good, but not the best Indian cuisine I have tasted. Far too much red colouring in the chicken tikka masala and also too much sauce; the rice seemed rather dry. Service was fairly...More

Still the best Indian restaurant outside of London. Food is excellent & the service is very prompt & efficient. Best food to eat is the chilli king prawn dish with a garlic nan & the obligatory pint of cobra.

A repeat visit for us and it did not disappoint. I had a fantastic madras curry with naan and rice. It was hot enough to make my mouth sing but not scream. Very busy this time but there were enough staff to ensure that we...More
