Good food, slightly slow service.

The food was good but not exceptional. The service was polite but slow considering this was a Monday night and there were only a few other customers. I tried just now to visit thier website to remind myslef what I'd eaten - and comment on it but thier website is currently down. But suffice... read more

Why do they need to cook the food in vast quantise of ghee?? It doesn't add to the general taste of the dishes, but seriously effects the health factor. The dishes are pretty tasty, but I wish they weren't so heavy handed on the grease!!

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 and flavoured beautifully.... 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
