I love this restaurant as I love Indian curry...this restaurant has particularly good curry! I visit every time I'm in Westport. It's a great place for families and my kids love the curry too.

Didn't expect to find amazing Indian food in Westport -but we did. Nicely spiced with medium being tangy and flavourful. Lots of fresh herbs a welcome addition. Don't be worried about the name! Fabulous food awaits.

Great place! Both curries we had were delicious and the naan bread was buttery garlic goodness. Couldn’t fault the place !

The copper pot restaurant I visited was very appealing. The food was very authentic and delicious. I ordered Kadai paneer which was the best paneer dish I have ever had. Highly recommended. Will come back next time too.

Most places had closed at 9pm so we were delighted to find this place. We ordered takeaways and they were ready in about 20 minutes. The curries were perfect as was the platter. Staff were friendly and helpful. I thoroughly recommend this place

We were greeted by a very nice man. Lovely looking menu. The was quite abrupt but not unpleasant. We ordered 2 dishes and half a tandoori chicken and naan bread and 2 mango lassis. After some time the first lassi arrived. Then the next 20...minutes later. We found this very odd. Also our mains arrived without the tandoori (a starter) so it assumed it was forgotten. The mains were ok but mine was warm, not hot, temperature wise. When we went to pay the tandoori arrived. We said no to it because we were already standing. Badly organised and no communication so will not come again.More

in Westport this restaurant does a great job of serving reliable and OK tasting Indian food. Somewhat one dimensional and lacked complexity but a great meal none the less.

Excellent tasty lamb rogan josh. Optional spiciness determined just right and perfect rice individuality. Pleasantly surprised for a small town.
