Excellent food, speedy service and good value compared to most Indian restaurants. Only downside was that we really wanted to sit outside to eat as it was a lovely evening and the outside seating area is really nice. When we asked if we could sit outside we were told it was too windy and we had to eat indoors. It... More

Nice location and the staff are very friendly. The food is excellent it was served to our table in a reasonable amount of time and was piping hot. The food was very flavorful with a wide selection on the menu.

I came here for a quick meal before departing for a ferry to France. The restaurant is upstairs with a veranda that would be nice in the summer to eat one (it was closed on our visit). There is a marina bar/restaurant downstairs, so can be confusing for first time visitor's. We where shown to a table quite quickly, and... More

Lovely Indian food with some original dishes that offer variety from the run of the mill. Excellent light onion bhajis, fresh curry dishes and friendly and attentive staff. Even the cutlery and glasses are well chosen, not your average Indian place. Of course the view of the harbour and boats on a sunny day helps to make the experience even... More

My partner's 50th birthday celebration. We had never eaten there but the location was perfect to show our home town off to 30 family member from the midlands and London. We couldn't have asked for more... ambience, hospitality and amazing food. I will definitely be back. Looking forward to sitting on the outside decking in warmer weather👌

Great service and food. Menu included squid, sea bass and swordfish which is great to eat by the sea. Sea bass was excellent as was my mixed grill. Definitely be returning.
