Having lived in Glasgow for many years and being a great lover of Indian food I have struggled to find a decent Indian in Dumfries and Galloway and now I have found it, Excellent fresh food and service, highly recommend

Would recommend food but service wasn't all that great and not that cheap either. Small tables but plenty room between them

The food is good, the naan garlic should have been better. The biryani portion is good for one. The best service by the waiter who is from Dehardhun. He explained all the items and really friendly. Welcomed me and my family.

Very nice food in an attractive restaurant on an unprepossessing side street. I had high expectation having read the online reviews, and I wasn't disappointed.

Had a surprisingly good meal at this unassuming place, tucked away from the main stretch in Dumfries. The menu is adventurous and the ingredients fresh, a definite recommended stop for anyone looking for quality food in a relaxed environment.

I have had 2 takeaways in as many weeks (rewarding myself for DIY Saturdays) and whilst not cheap, this place is far superior to other Indian Restaurants in Dumfries. The menu is small which is a good thing and there are typical dishes missing but it forces you to try something new. Don't miss out. Try it.

Not very busy for a Friday night but friendly and efficient staff. Oddly the menu prices are all exclusive of vat - what's the point in that? Good was hot and tasted really good. I'd go again if I ever go to Dumfries again.

Thank travelchap100
