We called in here as we had spoken to people who had eaten in the Queenstown Bombay palace - we must say that we eat lots of curry and this was without doubt probably the worst experience we had. The lady who served us made her apologies and removed some of the meals from the bill but the overall experience... More

Do yourself a favour and eat here. The tandoor oven is cooking the most delicious food. Chicken saag, eggplant, lamb korma, naan bread... yum yum yum. Nice service and nice place. Also very very good price.

I ate the most delicious curry with king prawns here - I wish we'd had time to go back and try more dishes from the menu! The flavours were delicate and rich, without being too heavy. We had cheesy garlic naans for the table and everyone was blown away but how tasty they were. We saw the naans being made... More

We're locals, and love this place. Our son has been brought up on their Butter Chicken dish. Very friendly staff and good views of the lake. Centrally located. A good decision!

We muddled this restaurant with another one which we were searching. Don't make the same mistake and check the reviews carefully. The food was dreadful. The poppadums arrived burnt and the staff seemed surprised when we sent them back. The main courses were tasteless and our request for spicy food ignored. Service was slow and disinterested.

The best onion bhagies I've tasted in a long time! Excellent service, quick cooking time, excellent range of vegetarian dishes. Tipped the waitress who was brilliant and personally thanked the proprietor.
