The waiter's favourite joke...

Popadums and chutney tray were excellent, starters were good value, only 4 pieces of lamb for the lamb tikka, but the onion bhaji and the prawn puri were very good. Main... read more

Located on the edge of Hoole as you come into the City Centre of Chester this restaurant is well worth a visit as it has an extensive and exciting menu - some 20 starters, 6 tandoori specials, a host of Chef's Special Delight and all the other Bhuna, Balti, Cylon, Dhansak and Madras etc. dishes. My favourite is the Naga... More

... by the name (it's not a cafe) or by the outside (it looks like a cafe). The food is great and the service and staff are exceptional. The other good reviews on here are well deserved.

Thought we would try somewhere different for a change and we were not disappointed. We asked if they would do a mixed starter which was not on the menu and they did no problem whatsoever which was nice and tasty. Some interesting dishes on the menu which we have not heard of before. Staff nice and friendly well worth a... More

Despite that went here while visiting Chester as it ranks as the number 1 Indian restaurant on trip advisor. Decor ok, service attentive, meals delicious but the medium dished were more mild, cost = excellent value for money... More

Went for a meal with the extended family age range 7 to teens to 40's to 70's. Everyone got Currys exactly as they want. Mine was a spicy jalcrezi, yet the kormas ordered for the younger ones were all eaten too. Great family-friendly service! Good evening out!

Stumbling across this place by accident without doing any research or asking advice turned out to be a delight. We were on a two night short break in Chester over Christmas and had no idea what we were going to do. A great piece of serendipity* to land up here. OK, in the above 'Is this one of the best...

On a cold wet December evening we were welcomed by happy smiling polite staff that could not do enough for us to feel welcome. The food was absolutely gorgeous, piping hot and beautifully presented. My wife and I were on a short break and didn't know the area, the staff were really enthusiastic about the area and made it a... More
