Love this restaurant! Read reviews on here saying it had declined under new ownership. Happy to report it's as wonderful as ever. Best curry for miles and their sag paneer is a masterpiece of creamy cheesy yumminess. To be accompanied by the chicken tikka cheese nan bread. Orgasmic!!! 5*+++

This Indian restaurant is worth a visit. The food is cooked following a policy of quality rather than quantity. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a good atmosphere in the well laid-out restaurant.. When we went there on a Thursday evening there was no music. Nice. Can be recommended.

Great atmosphere and great food. Unfortunately one of the waiters didn't utter a word to us, literally... but we overlooked that as the rest of the staff were great and the food is WONDERFUL. Highly recommended.

Staff very rude, didn't bring all food I order as they didn't think we would eat it all. waited hour and half for food, no apology or money off. And expensive compared to the others in Ringwood.
