Restaurant was quiet in comparison to other pubs/restaurants in the town so was slightly worried. However, food was great, lots of choice on the menu and well priced. Restaurant is licenced which is a bonus compared to a lot of asian eaterys of today.

Lovely Indian restaurant, a little cramped but the food is amazing, chicken tikka chilli masala was beautiful and the lamb tikka balti melted in your mouth, definitely worth a visit and would go back in a heartbeat next time we are in Windermere.

Food was alright but the place was cramped as it is in a small place on a busy main street that attracts a lot of business. It is almost impossible to get a seat unreserved and group bookings are out of the question. Food is...More

This is a highly disappointing Bangladeshi restaurant at Bowness on Windermere. I was surprised at the rudeness we were met with. The service was terrible and you are forced to order a vegetable dish per person or they refuse to serve you! On top of...More
