“Best in town - and also cheapest!”

We spent some time looking around the town and were dismayed to find the restaurant menus uninspiring and the prices higher than where we live in London! We then found this place with a huge choice on the menu and the prices much more reasonable – under £20 a head including drinks. Food very tasty and the owner was pleasant too!  – Bill W, April 2017

Tasty Food, Lovely Service

Delicious curry. Lovely selection of side dishes. Great menu choice. Service very friendly and efficient.

“Excellent food and a lovely atmosphere”

We visited this restaurant on 26 April 2017 after a day browsing in the lovely second hand bookshops around Hay On Wye. Everything was wonderful. The food was beautifully prepared and it was possible to taste individual spices and seasonings. Not a hint of grease anywhere. Just perfect. The service was understated and non intrusive. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
