“a good restaurant but terrible decor!”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

i know that the decor is not the most important thing in a restaurant (the food is the most important thing and the food here is very good and quickly served with a very large choice of dishes for such a small place)but this one takes the biscuit! The walls are painted (badly) pillar box red and jet black and the paintings range from elephants wandering across the desert to a Victorian blacksmith shoeing horses !(someone obviously bought them as a job lot) and thet still have Xmas decorations hanging from the ceiling in April! Keep your head down over your plate and enjoy the food.

“Extremely disappointed!”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Poor food, poor service. Dull ambience. May be there are better Indian restaurants in Bowness. Will surely not return!

“Garlic Guilt!”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Yummy food, prices are good, portion sizes aplenty...Very quiet but it was February and the middle of the week so cannot fault this! I had the garlic and chilli chicken and to be slightly critical there was an ounce too much garlic but saying that if you are fan of garlic this is the dish for you, not too spicy!

“Willing but one or two mistakes”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

The Indian food was good, but the English food did not match up in quality.
The service was only average to poor, with requests forgotten and mistakes
made on the bill.
