Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent food which appears to be individually cooked unlike many indian restaurants. Shows regional variations unlike many. Good value but very quiet the Sat night we were there. Deserves more attention!

This is the only Indian restaurant we go to in Palmy these days. In fact, we both rate it even more highly than the Indian restaurants in Brick Lane, London. On our last visit we took a family of five who were visiting. The food,...as usual, was first-rate - a wide choice, all exquisitely-flavoured. Their 'extras' - Naans and Poppadoms - are the best we have ever tasted. Our family members, visiting from the Wellington area, were highly impressed, our daughter commenting that if the restaurant were to set up in her area, it would become their regular Indian one. The service is excellent - very friendly, attentive and obliging. A first-class, inexpensive dining experience.More

On a Wednesday it was quiet, but the food, oh the food! Best Indian food we have ever eaten. The sauces were tasty, the meat (one lamb dish, the other beef, with a chicken starter) all just melted in the mouth. The naan were beautiful,...not the doughy stodgy that is usual. Hubby was delighted to have ice cream as his dessert! Can’t wait to bring friends and family back - this will become our go to, as they do pick up as well! Remember to take your favourite tipple, as they are BYO only, and if you forget, the nearby Four Square can help you out!More

Fantastic smells as you walk in but the food was bland. The sauce had some flavor but the chicken had obviously been cooked frozen reheated and added 30 seconds before it was served.

Had an amazing dinner. Was a little concerned because the place was quiet, however the food was amazing. There was a steady flow of diners collecting takeaway meals which boosted confidence. The service was great, the menu was very well explained to us for any...questions we had and the wait time was totally acceptable. Towards the end of the meal, the chef even came out to check on us and had a good little chat with us. Couldn’t fault the service or food. Was a truely lovely evening with my beautiful wife. Thanks Indian love story!More
