This was the first time visiting this restaurant. We went on a Sunday night and after looking at menu online decided to opt for the 5 items for £9.95, starter main rice side and naan. Sat down and ordered only to be told that it was now £10.95. Was too late and hungry to argue over £2 but need to... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant by chance after watching the rugby, and was very glad we went. Great service and friendly staff. My chicken tikka dhansak was lush! Will definitely pop back next time I'm in whitstable.

We visited as a couple late on a Saturday evening (9.30ish) was busy but they found us a table and were very pleasant. The food is amazing. We don't like spicy and didn't even have to ask for mild. We had mixed tikka starter, meat samosas, lamb tikka main, chicken biriani, Bombay aloo, special rice, mushroom rice and naans. Could... More

We are staying in Whitstable and I walked into the restaurant asking for a takeaway. Because they didn't do the curry my partner usually has they discussed with the chef who made something similar for him. Whilst I waited they made me a drink and when we got back and ate the food it was really delicious. Would recommend this... More

I think this is the best Indian restaurant in Whitstable. The food is fantastic, the service excellent AND it is so cheap! If you go on a Wednesday you can have any starter + any main + any side + any naan + any rice all for £10.95 and you get a complimentary liqueur and a chocolate. A child gets... More
