This is quite possibly the only Indian Curry Restaurant on The Pantiles. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT. Unless you read the shop front signs carefully, you will surely miss them. No lift. So buggy and wheelchair could be a challenge, unless its summer and they lay tables outside.

Walking up the stairs I was `greeted` by a grubby looking chap in a dirty tee shirt who grunted something to a waiter who showed me to a table....great start, I nearly walked out there and then. Looking around the place it was just shabby, dirty and tired looking plus it smelt a bit fusty, however a couple of dishes... More

Got a late take away delivery last night. As usual Suki and his team outdid themselves. I had Chicken Passanda, really flavoursome sauce and plenty of meat, my husband had a Jalfrezi which was apparently hot enough!! Great service and prompt delivery, would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!

My partner and I dined here recently. We were both disappointed with our dishes. I ordered the Raja Jhinga Silchari and asked if this could be cooked to vindaloo strength. After all it said on the menu "our chef's own specialty,made as hot as necessary to please your taste." The resulting dish had very little heat. Either the waiter ignored... More

Kirthon, what's happened? We've used nobody else for four years, but our last two deliveries have been sub standard. The curries were luke warm last night & the naan stone cold. This is not your usual quality & so disappointing.

My husband and I have never been here before but we will return! We had a chicken dish and king prawn, spicy rice and a naan. Sorry cant remember their names but they were lovely, really nice flavours which complimented each other. Nice atmosphere too

We often get a delivery from the Kirthon - the one we received on Saturday night was exceptional. You could tell it was all freshly cooked, the flavours were fantastic and it was still piping hot when delivered. I had a fish curry, never had it before but it was really tasty, the fish was really large meaty chunks and... More

We were the only ones there to begin with and there were another dozen there by the time we left. The staff were very attentive and friendly, two of our group are regulars but this was our first time. Good food choices, everything tasted lovely and fresh, bhajis not oily and the garlic naan a wonderful taste experience as normally... More
