Very friendly staff in a restaurant which is functionally decorated. The food was excellent - Bombay aloo marvellous, butter chicken best i've eaten (been to India dozen times), Balti chicken very tasty, chicken tikka ticked all the boxes, only meat samosa was average

I'll start by saying that I'm not a fan of British curry houses anyway
I've holidayed in India and spent several years in the UAE where I believe Indian food is at its most authentic
Service was excellent and timings between courses just right
Location not ideal as others have mentioned but thought it was worth a trip
Starters Onion Bhajee & Bollywood Kebab we very tasty but it was at this point I suspected the absence of a tandoori oven
My tandoori mixed grill was, in my opinion, unlikely to have been cooked in a tandoor
The food came up tandoori coloured but lack the depth of flavour and moisture which makes me think it's just brushed on and baked in an oven. I suspect this is the technique used in the UK
I suppose I could have asked the question but at that point it wouldn't have changed my opinion. The garlic & cheese man didn't have the classic light charring you would expect if baked in a tandoor
Any loads of people love so maybe I'm the minority

We ordered a takeaway for 4, as we have small grandchildren... it arrived on time and was hot and tasty... The samosas were on soggy lettuce, but hey ho... put the salad in a separate bag... Curries were succulent and well spiced, tasty but not too hot...
The price was fairly high, compared to the UK, and there were no complimentary popadums, shame...

Visited this Indian restaurant as it was close to where we were residing during our stay in Lanzarote.

Rated 3 star merely due to price / quantity. For starters we ordered Onion Bhajee and Chana Puri. Both the starters were decent. Although the Chana Puri colour was much darker (redder) than what you usually get in other places.

For mains we ordered Garlic Naan (flat bread) and Palak Paneer (Spinach & Cottage Cheese). Was expecting to have more Paneer in the Veg Curry. The Palak Paneer had a layer of oil which was disappointing although it had a good flavour to it. I fail to understand why chefs use a lot of oil in cooking curries. A mere 1- 2 tablespoon is sufficient!

For drinks we ordered 1/2 pint of sangria.

Total cost for the meal was approx €30

The washrooms were quite clean
