First start off with the positives, my rating of very good is based on my main meal, if it hadn't been so good this restaurant would have been average at best.

Main

King Prawn Delight

This is a beautiful dish created by the chef, 3 VERY large king prawns cooked with chef’s own dry roastedspices including coriander, fresh green chilli, onion, peppers, stuffed with brinjal, rice came separate. This was one of the best King Prawn meals I've had in any Indian restaurant anywhere, the King Prawns were so succulent and at £15.95 including rice worth every penny 10/10.

Our service on the night wasn't the best, one particular waiter thrust the menus at us and did the same with our plates, thankfully the other two waiters that served us were more pleasant. Our dining experience wasn't helped being sat in the back of the restaurant where there were no windows and sat near an air conditioning unit blowing cold air directly at us, we asked for it to be turned off which they duly did only to turn back on again 10 minutes later. The restaurant was barely a quarter full, so they could have moved us if they wanted the unit on.

The restaurant does have a licence unlike another Indian restaurant in the Town so another point for that.

Based on the food only, I would recommend a visit if you like flavoursome Indian food.

Best Indian in Wiltshire, supported by a great customer service with pleasing smiles. Will not be disappointed.
Handsome Gents and cracking banter!

Convenient for us to eat there. Food never fail. The curry here is always good. The owner and the staff were very accommodating and nothing is too much bother.

Myself and a friend had been to a beer festival all afternoon and needed a curry and the trimmings to sate our appetite. Being an off the cuff visit we hadn't booked but were welcomed by a friendly waiter and shown to a table, we ordered more beers and popadoms accompanied by some great chutneys.
These were soon followed up by our tasty main courses of lamb vindaloo with rice and naan. The waiters were obviously busy but were very attentive and polite.
We enjoyed our food and atmosphere of the sultan and wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will enjoy a return visit in the future
