The mid-week lunch special is excellent and affordable. Choice of entree with rice and wonderful soup. Also chutney. Very authentic Indian food. Fresh spices, vegetables, meat... Clean restaurant, nice atmosphere, Indian music in the background.... Good full-dinner menu. Worth a visit.

I've never dined in and have only ordered take out. The curry is average.. rogan josh was not on the menu.. rice was standard. Just average, but it's nice that there is an Indian Cuisine restaurant in Portsmouth.
