We were on holiday in Newquay and always like a good curry. We checked TripAdvisor to find this little gem and were amazed at what we found! We just turned up in a busy Friday night and was seated straight away. The service wasn't the speediest but we were quite happy to wait as we were on holiday after all!... More

Read the reviews, that food is tasty, but didn't get the chance to have. The staff is not friendly, made us to wait for around 1.5 hours, but still were not able to arrange a table.

We visited this restaurant with friends and although we had booked we were made to wait in the reception area. This was no great inconvenience as it is expected that a restaurant that is popular is not run to set times. That said it did appear that some 'walk-ins' after we had arrived were being seated before us but again... More

On entering the restaurant was busy so we had to wait 15 minutes for a table, ok so we will have a drink while we wait, no problem with that but they couldn't be put on the table as it was easier for the barman if we paid cash on ordering. Doesn't matter what the customer wants right? When the... More

Well where to start. From the outside it looks like a shop front takeaway. On the inside it is a different story completely. Wonderful service and the very best Indian food I have ever had. Would visit Newquay again just for this restaurant. Beautiful views of the sun set and the sea with lovely wine and speedy service.

We visited here at Easter and it was very busy but when we ate our meal we realised why! The whole meal was amazing.... the most authentic indian food I've eaten in a restaurant... we did have a bit of a wait before being seated because we couldn't book, so we just had to turn up...but that said, it was...

The staff here was so friendly and made you feel so comfortable. We both had a korma and it was a little hotter than a regular Korma, but seeing as it's a proper Indian restaurant that's to be expected. Lovely evening. Recommended.
