We visited last night while on a two week holiday in Paignton . This was on recommendation from locals in the area, and it didn’t disappoint . Our table was booked for 8pm and we were greeted at door and shown straight to our table....We order a bottle if chardannay £15.95 which is reasonable price we are from derbyshire and it’s around the same price we would pay back home. We had a couple of pappadum s and pickle tray 65p each for pappadums &£1.95 for pickle tray) I had the saffron jhinga to start , my husband had spice crusted boti kebab. Our mains we both had prawn biryani with a garlic naan to share . All was perfectly cooked and great service. We finshed with coffee has we were full from other food. Our bill came to just under £68 including wine and coffee excellent food at reasonable price & good service highly recommendMore

Really good interesting menu, would love to have gone back so sample more. The food was truly excellent with an outrageous home made naan. I had the lamb shank vindaloo, which was fantastic. The service was prompt and polite. Wish I had this place around...the corner.More

We went here for my husbands birthday. Yesterday we hadn't booked but the waiter found us a table. The food was very good as was the service. And reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

Not the first time we have been to this restaurant and it never disappoints. Staff are attentive and make you feel welcome. Food is always of a high standard and well presented. Not your typical Indian menu but if you do ask for something that...may not be on the menu they do try to accommodate you. Looking forward to our next visit already.More

We placed an order for home delivery at 1838 hours on 4 September 2021. We were told the meal would be with us by 2100 at the latest. At 2100 I rang to find out when the meal would be delivered. The manager said they...were very busy and the order would be with us in a few minutes. At 2115 I rang again. The manager denied that they had originally promised the order would be delivered by 2100. At that point I cancelled the order.More

We were thinking we could get excellent food and service but we were mistaken. We waited for a long time for the food that was ok but the wine was not good at all , very cheap quality. What made everything worse was the confrontational...attitude of manager and smirky smile of waitress when I requested another drink . Also when my husband first went into the restaurant he approached the manager to ask if there was a table free. The managers reply was wait one moment please, which normally would be fine but then proceeded to make him wait standing there about 3 mins when all he needed was a yes or no. The manager then answered the phone and dealt with another customer before answering my husband. My husband then mentioned that all he needed was a yes or no, and was confronted by a bad attitude. The tables were not wiped in between courses. Cheap napkins, bad lighting and just a general approach to customer service was poor.More

I have been eating curries for 50 years. I have to say this is the best curry I have ever eaten. Suptle blend of spices and Fabulous device.

The food is absolutely outstanding, I would highly recommend coming here. It is one of the best curries I've had. The waiter was very polite and the atmosphere is very pleasant. By Ryan aged 10.

Faultless from service to high quality food throughout if going to only one place in Paignton for a night out this is the place. Try you'll not be disappointed.
