No alcohol licence in this restaurant but you can bring your own alcohol with you. The service is very good and the menu has no shortage of different flavours from mild to very hot. Plenty of vegetarian choices and the food is freshly prepared and cooked . Prices combined with the cheaper option of bringing your own alcohol make an... More

Best Indian restaurant in Suffolk! The staff are staff are so pleasant, polite and very grateful for your custom. What the restaurant lacks in space and comfort, is more than compensated with its first class food and service. We were giving up on Indian food in Suffolk. We Found all the other restaurants so disappointing until we found the Sonar... More

This is a BYO alcohol restaurant which can be quite good as you can avoid overpaying for beer and wine by bringing your own. The food was about average for Ipswich Indian restaurants. I was disappointed with the king prawn puri starter which was lukewarm temperature at best. It was almost a spicy version of prawn cocktail not really good... More

We have walked past many times on our way back from the town centre and finally decided to try it out. We certainly were not disappointed. The service was very good, the staff were friendly and the food was very tasty and reasonably priced. It is a small restaurant so I would advise booking in advance. Bring your own beer/wine...glasses... More

Popped in for a surprise meal with the wife tonight, and got a table for the two of us. Not too busy before a show at the regent. Food was amazing, and the flavours where awesome. Seemed a little surprised that we did not order bread or rice, but accepted our requests and delivered on great food.

This is a small and unassuming restaurant on the edge of the town centre, offering a very good, and good value, selection of sub-continental fayre. The set menu for two allows you to choose 2 curries from the menu whilst adding the necessary extra accompaniments (onion bhaji, rice, naan, poppadoms, alloo bhaji) which you really want, and all for just...
