Good Takeaway

Good set meal for two take away. Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Ceylonese, nice but a bit salty. Nan was chewy after 10 mins in the bag. Veg pakora was great but didn't enjoy the chicken pakora.

We ordered takeaway from Table on Tuesday night - our only day off each week, so we thought we would treat ourselves and we weren't disappointed. We had the Kodi Curry and the Handi Lamb with a mixed platter of starters. The mixed pickles are just amazing and you can tell that everything is made in house as it's fresh... More

We visited this restaurant after reading the trip advisor reviews. Perhaps our expectations had been raised too high by them. It was very busy especially for a mid week night. Service I felt was a bit inconsistent - there was a lot of staff but it seemed very uncoordinated and felt there was poor communication with us (the customer )... More

As a regular diner in Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants, this ranks high on the list of the best meals I have eaten. There is nothing I could fault and it was a memorable dining experience

We hadn't booked........and it was Saturday night! The staff were keen to fit us in somehow. Nice atmosphere overall.......and spotless toilet facilities. The starters were TRULY 5 star but our mains disppointed in that the sauces all seemed the same.......a not uncommon issue in Asian restaurants. The side dish was great.
