Read the somewhat mixed reviews, but really fancied Indian food last night. Steep stairs covered in good quality pub carpet to get in and upstairs. Restaurant is fairly small but caters for two's to small groups. Decor is fine, it is what it is supposed...More

We lived in Wells twenty years ago and used this place often so thought we'd go back during an overnight stay two days ago. Horrible mistake. I've been eating and loving Indian food for about forty years and I can't remember a worse experience. It's...More
