Best Indian food ever!

The Curry Mahal is quite the jewel in the crown! We have been enjoying Indian food for many years and we all agreed (8 of us) that it was the best Indian food we had ever tasted. Each dish was individual; both the chicken and the lamb was perfectly cooked and the different curry sauces were tasty... read more

Haven't been here for a while, because on my last visit, they used far too much ghee, but as passing I thought I'd grab a takeaway on the way home. On an early Saturday night, a lot of others had had the same idea as they were busy. They do a Chicken Biriyani with chick peas, coconut & nuts that... More

Recommended by a friend for a long time so decided to give it a chance. It was like eating in a village hall. No atmosphere. Waiters moving tables around us while we were eating. Very off putting. Food was quite possibly the worst curry I have ever had. No better than you'd get in a pub. Won't be returning.

Excellent meal here this evening, one of the best Indian meals I have had for a long time. Both the starter and main courses were delicious and the staff are very friendly too. Highly recommended!

Its been a year since we went to the curry mahal and the food was still excellent. only one problem, on a Saturday night they do seem to focus more on the take aways than those in the restaurant. We arrived 1830 (first in the restaurant) and ordered (mains only) by 1845 and were still waiting for our food almost... More

My partner and I tried this restaurant at short notice as we were in the area on Saturday night. The poppadoms tasted stale and soft but the pickle tray was nice. We then waited for an hour for our main meal despite the restaurant not being full. When the main meal arrived the chili naan was amazing, saag bhaji and... More

My husband and I wanted an early meal (we are getting old!) but with the atmosphere of new year's eve. We have eaten here many times before and it proved to be just as good as ever. From the moment you walk in you are welcomed from all staff and treat like an old friend. The portions are of a... More

My partner and I visited here for a Valentine's meal. We were not disappointed. The portion sizes are ample and everything we had was lovely. From the poppadoms to the curry to the service, it was all spot on. Good value for money.

I picked up an order for six persons, the result at home was a outstanding thumbs up from the family coupled with clear plates and contented individuals. Over the last year the quality has been consistent. You may have to wait a while if you don't pre order but the Cobra on draught more than passes the time.
