Amazing food - easily the best Indian in Lancaster and Morecambe. I would specifically recommend the Garlic King Prawn main dish as it was spectacular.

One of the best Asian restaurant in Lancaster serving authentic Indian food. Have been to this place once every month while I was studying at Lancaster University. The service is average but the food is great.

After previous disappointments at BarBar Elephant I was disappointed to find the same failings. Although the restaurant is clean, well decorated and the staff are polite it's very much like being on a production line. For example we couldn't order our popadoms without ordering our main meals. Therefore everything came at once. I was repeatedly asked when only half way... More

We've been a few times and always overcharged. However, food is always excellent. On this visit we all wrote down exactly what we ordered to make sure there were no queries with the bill. There were 8 of us dining at 6:30 food very good as always. Female staff friendly. The male waiters are the extremely abrupt, to the point... More

I visited here with some business associates whilst working in Lancaster. We had been staying in a local hotel whose food offerings weren't very appealing! A quick trip advisor look drew us to this place and thank god it did! Food here is served freshly and tasted great. I'd go as far as saying that it's on par with some... More

I went here with my team last night for a meal and it was fantastic once again. The service was very good and all the staff were friendly. The food was amazing and everyone really enjoyed their meals. We had a great time.

Visited here for the first time this evening. Whilst the food was passable, though certainly not memorable, the real negative aspect to this review is the attitude of the waiters. The female staff were absolutely fine, the young male waiters were a disgrace to the restaurant. Two of them had an argument stood next to our table, one brought food... More
