This is by far the best Indian Restaurant in Darlington. The Indian and Thai food is excellent and I will never go anywhere else. Staff are very pleasant and food arrives promptly after ordering.

Visited this place again with colleagues. Food was very tasty, my favourite was the lamb dupiaza, the lamb was so tender and tasty. The vegetable rice had so much flavour. Colleagues loved their food, will be visiting again. Definitely recommend a visit.
