One of the best curries I've had in town. Our usual is the lamb madras 'hot' with roti and nan bread. Never failed. The meat so tender. X

Top quality curries. Great variety to choose from. Always friendly service. You can see through to the kitchen where you see the chefs working hard and having fun. Highly recommend the paneers.

Five of us went for dinner last night and had a very enjoyable meal. The surroundings are good and the service and food were very good. We will revisit shortly.

We go to this Indian regular as are new Brighton residents, I get the chicken jalfrazi and it's fantastic! We walk down the beach at sunset and have an awesome Indian meal and then walk home. You just can't beat it.
