Excellent Food

Went with good set of lads as a wedding 'last supper'. Excellent selection of ales and the food was great and prepared as expected and it was funny to see the variation between hot hot and medium on the same curry. You get what you ask for said the guy with a tears streaming down his face :-) Also... read more

Possibly the best Indian restaurant I have ever had the pleasure to visit. We chose the Corner Cafe based on the reviews. Tried ringing midday Saturday and left a message on the answer machine to book a table that evening and they rang back to confirm mid afternoon. Great service, wonderful food, lovely atmosphere and reasonable prices.

Had dinner here on the back of several recommendations. The food was terrific. Friendly service with prompt serving of food. Watch out for the poppadoms though; 50p EACH is somewhat excessive

Only the second time I've been here but will now make it a regular place to eat. Really well laid out so there was no feeling of being crushed. Great reception on arrival and immediately shown to the table. Attentive staff who made us feel welcome and gave us all the options for food and drink. The food was delicious... More

Service and staff commendable. Venue easy to find, parking good, and welcoming at reception. Mixed kebab contained nice piece of chicken but the 'meat' Kebab texture more like spiced bread bun. Maybe should have contained a bajie, for interest sake. Fish curry was excellent and chappati excellent and fresh. Colleague impressed with his meal. Very good and imaginative choice of... More

Hi Charlie. Thanks for your feedback. Maybe next time get 2 starters to share - a Mixed Kebab and a Mixed Bhaji, that way you will get to try the Chicken Tikka, Shami Kebab, Pakora, Mushroom Bhaji and Aloo Bhaji. We do have a very extensive beer menu, but it is virtually impossible to find local bottled beers under 3%... More

We went on a Friday night around 8ish, we were slightly late but the staff were really friendly and flexible and we only had to wait 5 minutes. We've eaten here before and had take away (takeaway uses the same kitchen but you get a 10 or 20% discount on menu prices - sorry can't remember which it is). But... More

I eat a LOT of curry and this is one of the best places I´ve ever been to. Great value, fantastic food and excellent service. If Corner Caf were ever to close down I´d be bereft!
