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.

Service was unfriendly, very detached and rather inept. Food was OK. Table cloth full of stains. Maybe take away is an option.
