The best Indian cuisine in Cambridge

I have been living in Cambridge for over 10 years and have invariably tasted food from many Indian restaurants, of which there are many in the city. Often with these restaurants, the experience is a disappointing one and it makes me never want to go there again. This has even been my experience... read more

I have been living in Cambridge for over 10 years and have invariably tasted food from many Indian restaurants, of which there are many in the city. Often with these restaurants, the experience is a disappointing one and it makes me never want to go there again.

From the outside we weren't sure if the restaurant is open - we arrived early and no one else was inside. However, after coming in and ordering we were relieved to see that the service was good and the food is very good. The restaurant soon packed out with two large group bookings.

This really is the best curry house in Cambridge and that is not just coming from a one off visit. As a local to the restaurant my friends and I eat here very regularly and thought it was about time we gave this amazing restaurant a review. The waiters are exceptionally courteous, welcoming and accommodating whenever we visit and the... More

I've been coming here for over 20 years, in the restaurant's different incarnations. I have to agree with the reviewer who says that he's surprised by the rave reviews, but it is a good, reliable local curry house. That's lucky for the locals, as there are no other conventional curry houses in the area. The decor is average, but the... More

We think we have finally found the best curry in Cambridge in , what I am told, is the oldest curry house in Cambridge. Everything was good but the dishes with tandoori chicken were outstanding. The chicken was tender and succulent. The dal was superb. We took our leftovers home and they were even better the next day. The restaurant... More

Extensive menu with more than just the classics. New additional items added to the menu from time to time. Quality and taste very good and portion size more than I could eat! Would recommend this restaurant to any genuine, curry eater.
