Visited with friends. Superb service. Excellent menu, wide and varied choices. Desserts if you still have room - delicious. Imaginative and different. Well worth a visit. We will return.

Had lunch here on my birthday. My wife and I both had chicken biryani. They were excellent. Staff were friendly and attentive, not pushy. Definitely a place to eat when in Margate.
