Amazing Vegan food, I was with a group of friends for a birthday and every course they had,a vegan option came out for me. Can't fault the service either. Fabulous Menu.

Enjoyed a meal here during an unseasonable warm short break in Margate. Booked after reading about it in an article online. From the minute you arrive the service is attentive but discrete. The menu had so many choices and both myself and my vegetarian dining partner were spoilt for choice. We shared a vegetarian platter of starters which were absolutely... More

It's not the cheapest in Margate, but will take some beating for quality. Plenty of atmosphere on a Tuesday evening - we ordered three courses from the short but interesting menu, and all delivered on taste and presentation. We also received three complimentary smaller courses - again the quality and taste was excellent. We booked with a groupon voucher, and... More

We absolutely loved our evening here. We had been let down by a change in our hotel menu and just chose this restaurant at the last moment. They were quite happy to let me peruse the menu before committing to a table and my fears that contemporary Indian fusion would equate to microscopic portions were completely unfounded. We had the...

Don't be put off by the somewhat shabby exterior as the place is redecorated. It is a real treat to find this quality of food anywhere. Clever flavours, full of surprises backed up with attentive service.

We ordered champagne a mid range pleasant start to our evening. Then the magic started, we were seated by an amazing waitress, her warmth and knowledge was second to... More

I have to admit that I like their taster menu evenings. A new season of idea's for you to try and reasonably priced. Worth a visit. You will not be disappointed. The staff look after you and keep you informed.

Free appetisers and in between courses served with your meal. Presentation and taste are of the highest quality yet... More

Don't be put off by the outside of the restaurant which certainly needs a coat of paint and a tidy up. The magic goes on inside. Service, quality of food and presentation is first class. Was there for Mothering Sunday lunch which was just perfect. Thanks to all staff.
