Consistently good food and service

After bad experiences elsewhere, my partner and I were really pleased to find a good Indian takeaway right on our doorstep. Prices are what one would expect, with the food being tasty and consistently prepared every time we've ordered.

My friend introduced me to this restaurant last year and I was impressed by their selection of curry dishes. A bit pricey but then it was Guildford. Poppadums really cooked to perfection.

Waited there 5 mins and frequently said "Hello" and no one came forward. Telephone rang someone immediately came, took a large order by telephone. I asked if my simple order would be placed before after and got a shrug of the shoulders and no smile. (RUDE) End of story, won't try that place again and won't recommend my friends either.

First visit since moving into the neighbourhood - very, very tasty takeaway! Actually can't find any fault. The one thing that they could do is get a licence so you can have a cold Kingfisher while you wait! Will be visiting again soon.

Purbani always provide an excellent take-away with consistently good flavours and textures, polite friendly service and free delivery. There are some new menu items: Vegetable Platter starter Butter Chicken Bengal Fish Jalfrezi and Captain Naga chicken or lamb. I had Chicken Naga Lamb tonight. It has a thick rich sauce with a pleasant hot taste of Naga chillies. No more... More

The shop itself doesn't look too impressive but the food is delicious - far better than other Indian takeaways in the area (& I've tried a few). Some really lovely flavours going on in the meals. Delivery drivers are always friendly & courteous too.

According to the website it's an 'exceptional Indian takeaway' and you 'will always receive a warm welcome any time of the day'. Well I called when it was still apparently open for a takeaway and was told it was closed. Never again

I went purbani couple of times , even though they where nice to us the food was rubbish and gave me the rong dish..when they did get the right dish it was too hot even though i asked for it to be mild. Great guys at the front but could be better at the back..cooking?
