In the town of Fordingbridge on the western edge of the New Forest, this family-run Indian restaurant has been successful in serving Indian cuisine since 1985.

With great anticipation our meal commenced with vegetable samosas and a nargis kebab - a hard-boiled egg encased in spiced lamb, rolled in a crunchy sesame seed coating and cooked in the tandoor oven. I had never tried this Indian equivalent of a Scotch egg before and found it an excellent starter. For my main course, I opted for the hatkora curry from the specials menu, which consisted of prawns cooked in medium spices with an exotic Bangladeshi citrus fruit known as hatkora which gave the dish a wonderful aroma. Being vegetarian, my dining partner went for the vegetarian thali, which included three varieties of vegetable, an onion bhaji, raita, poppadoms, chutney, sweet pineapple and coffee. At £8.50 no one could deny its value for money. For good measure we had a portion of curried chickpeas and to dip in the sumptuous sauces we chose an egg paratha and a rich, buttery tandoori roti.

From a basic chicken curry to the king prawn Ceylon with is hot, sweet and sour sauce infused with coconut, everything here is prepared with careful attention to detail, and it's all reasonably priced - perfect.
