Always excellent - vegetarian and takeaway in particular

We've tried all the (10+) Indians on Stoke Newington Church St and this is right up there with Rasa (100% vegetarian) with the added advantage that they deliver.

We had a delicious curry here last night. The food was exceptional and prices very reasonable. Service throughout was very attentive. We will definitely be back. We live locally and this is by far one of the best curry places in the area.

First time at this place. Went via recommendation. Arrived and lobby full of delivery drivers-at least 5 of them. Obviously delivery is a big part of the business. Ordered a glass of port and it arrived in a shot glass. Told the waiter that it should be in a sherry glass or wine glass at the very least. They brought... More

Really tasty food. Great lamb jalfrezi (melting lamb with a deep flavour and a nice chilli kick). Terrific naan bread (with charred & crispy bits). Nice staff and good service. Excellent value. Tastiest food on Stoke Newington Church Street.

A great range of dishes catering to a range of tastes, delivery can be slow during busy periods. Everything from Momo's to thali's with a tendency to rich sauces, great with friends and beer

We are (were) regulars at karnaphuli up until now. The food is usually quite enjoyable however on this particular occasion we received outbid date mint sauce. This would not have been a problem but when we called them they told us that we were lying.

We have been Karnaphuli customers for about 16 years and though we have tried other curry houses in Stoke Newington this is still definitely the best.

Recently returned here for a meal with my girlfriend after having not been in a couple of years…we were not disappointed! some of the best indian food I have had in London, and certainly the best in around N16. Always a pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff…best chicken jalfrezi i've tasted in a long time!

I've been here a few times. The atmosphere is nice, the service had always been good and the food always decent. I've got no complaints.
