Great atmosphere, excellent service, good beer, good menu idea. Don't want to say too much otherwise might become too busy when I want to return

Came on a recommendation and was very impressed. Friendly and attentive service, fabulous food, very fresh and well balanced spices. Special mention goes to the mint choc chip kulfi which was amazingly minty.

The corner cafe is a charming but modern curry house with very helpful staff and good food. But that's the problem - the food is good but nothing special. The menu is so wide ranging that I can't help feeling they should slim it down and just concentrate on less dishes but done better. Don't get me wrong the food... More

Hello SwissUK. Goodness, I'm not sure what to say to your review. You haven't given any detail in your review so I can't comment on what dishes you had. Perhaps you should try our Early Bird Menu, which at £10.50 represents very good value. More

Visited here for the first time having seen some excellent reviews. The Positives The service and greeting is excellent. We were made to feel welcome There is a good range of drinks available The meals are competitively priced and well portioned. Improvements The meal was not particularly distinctive and certainly not a stand out curry. Nice/good but not great.

We tried here the other night after wanting to for a while. It's a small place but nice. Good selection of drinks to choose from. Not the best selection of starters only about 5 of each to choose from (veg&meat). Curries we ordered were really nice also nice to choose your strength & the nan bread lovely although not much...

Having visited Corner Cafe over the years,( not for a while ) last nights visit was just a great reminder of how they are still consistently providing flavourable and wonderfully cooked food.

We stumbled upon this place by accident on Tripadvisor and couldn't wait to try it out. We visited on a weekday at 6pm and even then it was getting quite busy with large parties. We were pleased to find that the restaurant offered an early bird menu which was a total bargain. The staff there are a complete credit to... More

Hi Claire. What a lovely review - thank you. We do aim for a relaxed, informal and friendly atmosphere, so glad you liked the overall character of the restaurant. The Early Bird is great value at £10.50. I think I know who your waiter was, and will pass on your comments to him. Thanks again. More

A return visit to a frequent haunt over the last 20 years. Superb food with wonderful varied menu with imaginative choices and excellent veggie; great selection of local yorkshire beer and magnificent home made kulfi to finish.

My Wife and I were told about this place, so we went to find out for ourselves. I have to say, as someone who loves a good curry, that the Veg Biriyani was the best I've ever had anywhere in the world - and that's saying something!

Everything was super tasty. We had a sort of buffet meal- where all sorts of dishes were brought over to the table to share. Not too spicy but lots of flavour.

Glad you enjoyed your meal! For large parties we organise a banquet style, sharing meal to give everyone a chance to try lots of different dishes. We find it works very well for larger groups - glad you agree! Thank you. More
