We have been coming to The Khyber for over twenty years and it remains one of my favourite restaurants. It is quite small so we always book. On arrival there is always a warm welcome from Dinesh and he will guide you through the menu should you need some suggestions. Dishes to delight in are the chilli chicken starter and... More

Visited this place with friends and was pleasantly surprised. I have to say the poppadoms were awful - hard, chewy and got welded to your teeth. Not to be recommended at all. The curry however was lovely. The paneer tikka masala was delicious, perhaps the best I've had, and the chicken simba was a big hit too. The naan breads... More

The food and service is outstanding. We are ALWAYS welcomed with a smile and exceptional professional service to go with. A very clean restaurant with a fresh atmosphere. Foods to try are the Kadai chicken wings (definitely not the ordinary type), these are full of good flavour but surprisingly not over powering with typical strong pungent spices which is nice!...

Upon arrival and observing the menu I was surprised not to see the usual Indian food (korma, tikka,etc) but I ur waiter Marshall was cracking, he told us it was traditional dishes from the goa area and Southern India. He was super chatty and gave great suggestions on what to have and we ended up trying them all. A good... More

Invited to lunch at the Khyber by local Indian business friends who obviously know the owner and restaurant very well. Clean, simply furnished and warmly welcomed. Started with pappadums and chutneys plus a coleslaw like salad but with spicy dressing. Then delicious tandoori lamb chops with a rich and hot chilli sauce. Main course was Lamb Bhuna (freshly cooked, tender... More

Dropped in after a family Christmas shopping trip, having checked out TripAdvisor reviews, which looked good. We weren't disappointed! Lucky to get a table as it was packed at 7pm. No problem parking in streets behind. Definitely on the spicy side, even the Chicken Korma and Chicken Tikka Massalla (CTM)! (worth asking if you have specific requirements for heat) All... More
