My wife and I called into this restaurant whilst visiting Ashbourne. Nice setting upstairs overlooking the main shopping st. We were shown to our table not rushed to make our order. Food came and it was delicious from the popadoms and pickle to the naan bread. We would definately revisit if in the area. Please don't be put off by... More

Went to collect an order on time, had to wait another 30 minutes. Card machine didn't work, had to get cash together (they didn't mention this when we ordered or arrived to collect). Food was ok, but tarka Dahl was like dishwater. Overall won't bother with them again. If you want a decent takeaway, try the Panda Express. Avoid!

Absolutely disgusting way to run a business! Ordered a take away and told to collect in 3 quaters of an hour. Turned up and paid and waited 20 minutes. In this time whilst waiting we heard a few people who were waiting to be served in restaurant moaning about waiting for their food. When we asked how long our food... More

After a long wait, the food when we finally got it was not brilliant, despite some very good reviews the curries were quite greasy and bland.

We use this place a lot. OK, the carpet is worn and I can imagine the service is slow when busy, but we keep going back. The food can be tweaked to taste as it's all freshly cooked and the BYO keeps the bill low. Portions aren't massive though. If this isn't good enough for you, there's another Indian just... More

Smal, well kept restaurant on the first floor. My wife is Bengali and we asked for 'real' Indian/Bengali food (nearly all Indian restaurants serve British Curry/Jalfrezi etc. meals, which are a far cry from Indian food). There were some restrictions, because they simply do not keep the necessary vegetables/fish, but they provided dry shag (not this strange creamy green stuff... More

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions and have meant to leave a review on each visit but have always forgotten. This visit was so good I could not have left my review unsent. We were a party of 5 people and were met with a welcome on our arrival. We were seated and our order was taken promptly.... More
