Very enjoyable takeaway

Had a takeaway from this restaurant a few weeks ago. The restaurant was full so there was a long wait but I nipped into the pub next door. It's easy to see why the restaurant was full as the food was excellent. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I took my fiancé to the viceroy at Polegate this evening for his birthday. The resturant was quiet (not surprising as it was a Tuesday at about 6 Ish! ) we were met by a friendly member of staff who alowed us to choose where we wanted to sit. Had poppadoms with 7 or 8 different sauces which were all... More

My fiancé and I decided on The Viceroy for a surprise birthday meal. Didn't call ahead on a weekday evening, was greeted with a warm welcome and choice of tables to dine at. We went for a four course meal but not from the set menu. Each dish was above expectations. Flavours, spice and heat perfectly balanced. We were offered... More

Have been going to the Viceroy for years now, but never thought to write a review !. It is one of the best indians I have ever had. My wife generally has a shashlik or a tandoori chicken and I always go spicy. The vindaloo is great, as is the Jalfrezi. However the chicken chilli supreme and the chicken Juri... More

The veg kroma should have been called coconut korma as that it was it looked... More

Went here last minute as was going to k2 (as I do know the food is good their) and was pleased with the decision the staff were very helpful in choosing the dishes and the quality and taste of the food was very good. I would have no hesitation revisiting again, and felt for the service and quality of the... More

Used to think Viceroy was excellent. Have used other indian takeaways but as a treat thought would use Viceroy as a bit more pricey but usually worth it. Well we were very dissapointed. Gone right down hill. Naan was cold and almost stale like. Dinner was cold. Tikka was watery. Will certainly not be using Viceroy again. Have eaten better... More

Over the years have been to the Viceroy quite a few times. At best its excellent and at worst good/average - but the service has always been good, the atmosphere pleasant and the food good. It might be my imagination but the menu is not so extensive as it once was but there is still good choice. Can certainly recommend... More
