We ordered a large take out and everything was delicious. Great service. Even though we did not stay there to dine, the inside of the restaurant appeared to be very nice and clean. We will eat there again when visiting Chelmsford.

We were recommended by mates here . It's actually worth a try . Staff were nice . It could do with a paint job but it lived up to the evening

We visited this Indian on a Friday evening with friends as it was near our hotel. The food was excellent and plentiful and the staff were very friendly and attentive.

We came here with the kids before going to the Panto at the Civic. The food was lovely, there's loads of it! The service is fine (they are a little laid back) but they are polite and the food came out good and hot.

We met friends there for an evening meal and a catch up last night, Had not been there since a change of management. The service could not be faulted and the food was outstanding, all courses by all diners. We will be going back

Good food; good service; pleasant ambiance. If you're looking for a reliable curry house where the food feels freshly cooked and not just variations on the same sauces then you can't go far wrong.

One of their specialities, a chicken curry yoghurt, and mustard, fresh spices, the extra effort with ingredients makes all the difference.
