A really genuinely authentic menu

A fantastic menu, some really authentic choices not your usual 'British' curries at all. I had a murgh chettinad with a plain paratha which was quite amazing. I can honestly say one of the best curries I've ever had. Well worth a visit, the restaurant is very well presented and the staff are... read more

this was the second time I had visited and again I wasn't disappointed. this time it was with my wife and not with the lads on a night out. Again we found the staff very helpful and polite, the food again was good. Although, we both would have liked a little more of the starter and the main, probably because... More

Our party of approx. 40 visiting rugby fans turned up on the Karma Sutra doorstep on Sunday evening. The staff here couldn't have been more helpful. Tables were moved around to accommodate us all. The meals were delicious and plentiful. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Walked into a full restaurant probs due to it being Valentines Day. No reservation. Got told to wait 5 mins but ended up waiting 30 mins. Eventually got the table. Quite a good drinks list. Tasty cocktails but i think it didnt taste like it had enough alcohol in it. Needs to be stronger if your paying £5.95 for it.... More

Very pretty interior. Nice food. Ok service. Not my favourite Indian, but a decent place with decent food and they accept Tastecard - otherwise a relatively expensive (for Indian cuisine) restaurant. A side of Paneer Malaider was very tasty. Will probably go again one day.

The service and location are great. However my food was just ok. My shrimp was overcooked and the cheese Naan was a bit odd. Nothing bad enough to send back or make a stink about but I've had better.

food and atmosphere was generally really good, colleague was less than impressed by the garlic mushrooms, but biryani was great. Service was really good, price was ok, what I would expect for the quality in a city?
