Another great dining experience at Charcoals

This was our third visit and again the food, service and overall ambience of the place was excellent. Ali and his staff really know how to look after their customers.

The title probably says it all. Great food, decent prices, and very friendly staff. A class act all round!

ive now been to Charcoals a dozen times or so and it never disappoints. The food is fresh and authentic, the service is great, and both food and drink are very reasonably priced. The staff are also very good at bringing a little something extra from the kitchen. Highly recommended.

Visited Charcoals yesterday lunchtime. I've been a couple of times before in the evening and have never been disappointed. Sad to say though that during daylight hours the restaurant looked shabby, tired and not particularly clean. Although we arrived 45 mins before the end of the Executive Lunch period it felt a bit rushed. The curries were mediocre, nothing special.... More

Group of six of us went there for the evening after reading reviews on tripadvisor. This restaurant was amazing, the food fantastic and well priced. The staff were friendly and they kept giving us dishes on the house. The meal was topped off with a complimentary vodka jelly. I could not recommend this restaurant anymore, great food, great food.

Picked this one out of the best on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. Having been to India on business in the past I've never had authentic Indian food back here but Charcoals hits the mark. The Desi was absolutely lovely! The staff were attentive and welcoming and the atmosphere was great. I even got to hear one of my favourite... More

I have never wanted to go to this restaurant because of where it is located. A very busy road! However, was just passing one Saturday lunch time and my husband fancied a curry. Glad we did and of course the location did not dampen the experience. The food was excellent and the price of beer & wine was very reasonable.... More

Our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant and I am so glad she did. The food here is delicious and the staff extremely friendly and attentive. After Poppadoms and Dips, I opted for the Chicken Ticka Charcoals and it was superb. A very good sized portion cooked well and absolutely delicious. The wall here is covered with Awards and having tasted... More

Didn't book but they managed to squeeze us in ahead of some bookings. The food was great and for reasons unknown there were random extras delivered to the table for free. The quality of the food was well received and definitely up there with a Bradford curry!
