Restaurant
“If you stumbled upon this place, you probably wouldn't go in... it's an incredibly odd looking industrial shipping building at the end of a harbour arm. But walk inside, and you get a cool atmosphere, a real mix of customers and beautiful seafood reflecting the catch of the day. You can also park right outside if you can navigate around the fisherman. ”

“Beneath Ramsgate lies an abandoned labyrinth of tunnels which extends for more than 3 miles around the town. This unique underground city was constructed as part of the town’s Air Raid Precautions in 1939 and includes a former main line railway tunnel dating back to 1863. ”

“Award winning Indian restaurant in the area. Anil Kumar has years of experience as an acclaimed Chef in many parts of the world and we now have him here in Ramsgate. Food and ambience is intimate and unlike any other Indian restaurant. Palate cleansers are offered ready to enjoy the next food experience. So very well presented and staff polite.”
