The only Indian restaurant I ever visit in Whitehaven . Never had a bad meal here and the service impeccable. Unfortunately they no longer provide a sit in service and now only provide a takeaway food.

Only ever had take away but always been great. The yellow sauce is fantastic! Quite expensive but tastes great so totally worth it. Get meals between 2 as portions are massive!

We were recommended this place by a local, and it got good ratings online. I have no idea why. The restaurant is shabby, the manager was terribly rude and the food was drab. Only the naans were acceptable. Avoid.
