    Wow. What an amazing evening. From the very first greeting as you walk in the door, smiles on all the faces of every member of staff. The interior design and perfect lighting sets the mood. An immediate offer of drinks and poppadoms. The pickle served with the poppadoms was so delicious, we knew the food was going to be tremendous. It was. When asked, they gave superb recommendations of what to eat, the attentive service by all the staff was remarkable.. Truly delicious. This was top quality food and flavours, a top level maitre de service. Wonderful warmth and professionalism. The way these staff are here are beyond anything you would expect outside of London’s top restaurants. From management to the young staff, they truly made it a special evening. Thank you. We will be back.

    The food was amazing, it tasted as good as it looked. The restaurant is a lovely place to eat and it was packed on a Tuesday night, so well worth booking in advance. Definitely the best curry house in Chichester, but you do pay a slight premium for that as with everything else in life.

    Not very busy in there as it was lunchtime so we didn't have to wait long for our food. We picked from the set menu. The food was so good and portion sizes were generous. It was a friend's birthday and at the end of our meal to our surprise the waiter came out with a beautiful little sponge cake as a treat. I couldn't recommend this place enough, I can see why they won their awards.

    The food is fantastic. Even the rice is a step above other restaurants and the service is phenomenal.
