We had a fantastic time tonight! We were a table of 11, some of us had menu food and others had the buffet! The service and staff was fantastic! And to top off a really great night the staff sang happy birthday to my dad after dressing him up! And then gave him a fantastic framed photo as a memento... More

The food was amazing! It's slightly more expencive than other indians I Have been too but it's so worth it and i'm only talking a few pound extra per dish! I don't like Newton Abbot and I wouldn't want to visit the town often but this place is well worth visiting. We chose to come here from Paignton as my... More

Sorry to say it but this is not the place it was. 4 of us ate here yesterday. Outrageously the chutney that came with the poppadoms had been used by others- it had bits of birthday confetti in it. We complained and they brought over a replacement. The manager apologised but told me that it was the staff's fault as... More

By far the best Indian in the area. Plenty of choice and buffets on certain nights. Once a month entertainment arrives and this is a great night out. Birthdays are an eye opener if they find out!.

My partner went here on Friday to celebrate the purchase of our house. It was also my partners favourite place to eat, but as the title suggests, we won't be going back. The only positive about this meal was the price. I thought it was quite cheap considering the volume of food. The staff were really quite rude. The young... More

Stopped for a curry on our way home & it happened to be the buffet night which I don't normally go for. For £12-50 you could have as much as you can eat including a selection of starters, mains and a rice sweet. You also got a naan bread to share. The buffet was popular the food very good &... More

The 12 of us went early on a Saturday night for a pre booked meal while on a stag do. (BOOK IT BOOK IT BOOK IT). The whole experience was a treat. Some of the guys haven't been to an Indian before (sheltered life!!) and were unsure of what to order, despite being encouraged by the professionals to have a... More

The food was tasty there is no doubting that. Slightly overpriced and the buffet is completely pointless in my eyes. My one problem has to be the amount of times we were asked the same question about 4 times by 4 different people. Twice I can accept but 4 times just makes me think do the staff communicate? You'd ask... More
