Meal for 5 and we all sampled different starters and mains. Every dish was excellent lovely and fresh gorgeously spicy and aromatic. The drinks were also very reasonably priced and the Tempranillo red wine was a delicious accompaniment. All in all excellent meal.

What amazing food. I had the Old Delhi Chicken and it was absolutely to die for. My colleagues had other dishes and commented on how good they were too. Service is friendly but not over baring. But food is the reason to visit. Lovely.

Six of us visited for dinner on a Saturday evening. I had poppadoms to start followed by a vegetarian main course. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Very friendly, helpful waiters. Good wine. Will definitely be back!

I would strongly recommend for anyone to come to this restaurant and try something different. The quality of the food, particularly the meat, is superb and the dishes are interesting and well put together. The restaurant is intimate but not crowded and the service is excellent. This is by far one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever visited,... More

Freshly prepared, delicious food served as a 'one plate' dish rather than a variety of small dishes spread across the table.

I have used them 3 times for carry outs and they are nice people and serve good food. It is not your run of the mill menu, so there is some interesting food to try .

It's several years since we've eaten here - but we certainly weren't disappointed. High quality, well presented food with flavour cleverly and subtly provided. Not too much food too - a fault of many Indian restaurants. We took the chicken korma and the chick pea and aubergine curry. Both excellent. All for £44 including 4 poppadoms with pickles (try the...

We have visited here several times now. 8 of us went for a friends birthday. Food is very good and staff are helpful and frindly. Cleanliness seems good in restaurant though the loos could be better! Price wise its probably the most expensive Indian in Dorchester. They have a good range of vegetarian food. 2 of us are vegetarians, my... More

Had a delightful evening dinner here with my husband. It was our first time and we were recommended by friends. Didn't expect it to be as good as it was.
