Well it was Cowes Week and crowded and we were six, so after being told from restaurant after restaurant they were full we were welcomed in here. The staff were lovely and accommodating. The restaurant serves no alcohol and the meat is Halal and popular with Muslims and Christians alike who made up the cliental there. The food was your... More

Polite but the service was lacking. Food avergae portions. Come on guys, learn from the feedback. All we want is to have a good time and have some gerat service. Waiting a good hour for your food is too long.

Although we were a party of 16, and it was a Saturday night (1 October 2016), we waited far too long for our main courses to arrive. Mine was not hot and my side dish never did materialize. We were seated upstairs which, I believe, contributed to the poor level of service. Although the staff were friendly, they were overstretched.... More

We bought a takeaway for 4 people - the food was awful when we unpacked it: we ordered 2 prawn dishes which were not prawns but tiny shrimps, 3 tarkha dahl dishes which were watery and lacked any trace of substance onion bajees which were just balls of grease and fat. In fairness - the rice, poppadams and nan bread... More

I must start by saying that the food was very nice, but that's the end of the good news. The waitor that served us really did not want to be there, and made sure that his customers knew it. When after 10 mins he'd taken our food order we asked for drinks, an orange juice and lemonade plus a beer,... More

We went in here for dinner as most other places were closed. Poppadoms were greasy, NO ALCOHOL served and no offer of going to get us some as other reviewers experienced. We ordered a starter each which was disgusting- the tandoori chicken tasted like it had been boiled, absolutely disgusting! We didn't even order mains, we paid (Although they refused... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night. Even though we had not booked they made space for us upstairs. The food was very good, it is very traditional Indian food. our waiter was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this restaurant as I have tried the others in cowes and this one is far superior.

Had a veg jalfrezi and lots of poppadoms after seeing that the restaurant had been visited by a popular celebrity. The food was just right, with definable flavours and aromas. Staff expedited serving my food to help me catch a convenient ferry. For five stars, I think I'd like to see some comfier cushioned dining chairs for a longer celebration... More

Great time here. Really good food and service! I recommend the butter chicken and the poperdoms with the chutney. Reasonable bill
