Call here as a couple, have tried other curry houses in and around the local towns like Carmarthen, Llanelli, Llandeilo and even Cardiff. And we find the food the tastiest here. Plenty of choice, and they are more than obliging in offering advice and if...More

Visited as part of a large group (30+). Staff worked tirelessly to get our food out. It was a little slow, but this was kind of expected. Food itself was very good. Happy to recommend.

Attended here with a works party. Haven't been in years so I wasn't expecting much, but pleasantly surprised at the improvement in food. Flavoursome, spicy. Ample choice. Can't wait to use it again.

We were a party of 29 attending a pre arranged charity event. First impressions is that the place is looking rather tired, the sticky carpet in the bar area was a real put off. The bar was a little poorly stocked and the soft drinks...More

If you want trendy, cool, cutting edge or that sort of stuff this place ain't for you. If however you want a well-cooked curry, served by polite, friendly and attentive staff, and plenty of elbow room at your table, then it is. Prices are reasonable...More
