This place is just phenomenal. It’s small but very intimate and cosy. You’re made to feel so welcome from the start, and the food is just superb. I started off with the onion bhaji. Usually this dish is overly greasy and too big, but these...More

It is my local Indian cousine and always satisifies me. All of the curries are exceptional and the price isn't bad either. They have promotional discounts now and again. The flavours are incredible. Couldn't be better for a small town such as Bishops Castle.
