Lovely food with buffet style service. Buffet is vegan, hot, tasty and as spicy as required. The Daal is to die for. Serves basic range of Indian beers and wine. Very gentle, welcoming and inclusive. Awesome food

Bargain buffet. I was in two minds as the buffet is strictly vegetarian but not an issue if you are not.Really affordable and a couple of dishes to fill you up, including chocolate rolls and melon as desserts.

We were lucky to stumble across this. No frills vegetarian indian food. We didn't really know what the dishes were but as everything is vegetarian we knew it was safe and was all very tasty. Considering it is in Brighton it was very good value.

Quick and convenient but the food is just a bit too average. That said, it is cheap and fair for the price. Can't see me coming back in a hurry as there's so much other choice in the area
