Quaint, comfy and intimate little restaurant in Helston's main street. We tried it as a cheaper alternative to one of its nearby rivals and found it compared exceptionally well. The food was equally as nice and the prices a fraction of nearby places. We continued...More

Nice Indian Restaurant on Helston's main Street. The food was very hot and tasty and service was excellent. Would definitely recommend if you were looking for an Indian meal. This restaurant serves alcohol, the other two in Helston ask you to bring your own.
