One of the best curries in Brighton, if you like curry it's a must. Can't say any more than that fantastic

The meal was very nice, I had the chicken korma. The staff were dressed presentably and the tables were clean. Waiting time was acceptable but the quality of the food makes up for it. I recommend the chicken korma. Prices are average

very cramped at the back, with tables far too close - have been here before, but not for a while - disappointing Balti dish, whereby the sauce was overly sweet, like having a can of thick tomato soup poured over chicken - although plenty of staff, they appear to have 'an attitude'. On the plus side, the nan bread was... More

We come to this place frequently. The food is great, an excellent curry. The service is also very good. The restaurant can get a little warm and claustrophobic as it is an old cottage. You have to check the bill as they have "made mistakes" quite a few times.

It's been a few years but we phoned and booked for a Saturday evening. A family meal out in a family restaurant. The decor was India takes on the Tudors but worked somehow in a comforting and unpretentious way. Service was good but the meal was the best bit. We all look at the menu, studying it carefully and then... More

Food was great - most important in a restaurant :-) Little bit cramped for space but not that it caused major issue. It was pricey though - 2 courses with a couple of drinks and poppadums was nearly £35 a head so not somewhere we would come back to a lot but would visit again when wallet is a bit... More

I have switched to this restaurant due to my old favourite losing its way a little. I'm glad I did. Always great food and plenty of it...great for us big eaters. They are happy to change the flavour and heat level in request and the paratha is something to really enjoy! Sometimes have to repeat my address so call from... More

Came here with a friend and was a big fan of the glass decorations. We enjoyed the food and the service was quick and friendly

We visited the Elizabethan Cottage Tandoori a few weeks ago during a trip around Sussex and from the front it looked quaint, warm and welcoming. However, we were led through to the very far end of the restaurant, tucked away at the back and immediately I pointed out how cramped the area was...chairs touching back-to-back, tables squashed together with very...

It should have been good but wasn't. The two different curries we ordered were very similar except one was much hotter (only difference). An overlaying gravy taste as if it was too thin and needed thickening. Not very authentic.
