Been eating there regularly for 13 years, but the quality now is nowhere near as good. My guess is much cheaper ingredients (poor chicken, just one small tandoori king prawn instead of two, etc)...such a shame.

We decided to try this restaurant as we saw a number of people eating here. The service was very good and staff were friendly. The food was not the best we have had with regards to the flavours and textures but that said it was hot and fresh.

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday with my husband following a recommendation by the hotel we were staying at. Being a Sunday in winter didn't help but we were the only people in the restaurant after another couple who has just finished their meal left and therefore it was lacking in atmosphere. The waiter was attentive and the food was... More

Crisp fresh decor. Two poppadoms with a selection of pickles. Special thali selection hidden at the end of the menu. A glass of lassi and jug of iced water garnished with lemon. Perfect! So glad I avoided a starter even though the butterfly chicken served up to my friend looked beautiful. Companions chose tikka masalas as their main but I... More

We were recommended the restaurant by our taxi driver (we stayed at Rhinefield house) and we were pleased with the meal. Good quality food, tasty and moist naans. I always judge a curry house based on the naans and they were good here. I had the prawn goan curry and my wife the lamb Korai and both were enjoyable. I... More

Staff very polite, service slow and food was a bit disappointing as bland, lacking flavour. We were sat by the Dow and it was very cold, staff seemed a little annoyed that we ordered one main to share?

Absolutely fantastic evening out every time. We have eaten here 5 times now and sadly have moved out of the New Forest. Should we ever be visiting this way then, without a doubt, we will dine here. Even when they are clearly extremely busy we have never felt neglected - tasty food, great service and fantastic atmosphere. 5 Stars all... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the place we were staying. We visited on a Thursday evening and there was no problem getting a table. The menu was extensive with lots of choice. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The staff could give recommendations of dishes and the spice level could be changed on dishes to ensure it catered... More
