Go to this place quite often, it's a pub with good beer at good prices with very good food. Tava chicken is just gorgeous! Can get busy and as all the food is cooked fresh the wait time is longer but it's oh so worth it. Also does takeaway so you can pop in, order your food to go, have... read more

This is a good place where you can have a feast with a little money - you will not feel the pinch in your pocket. There are plenty to choose from and I was told that their Chicken Wraps with Chips and Thali set are a hit with the foodies, although we never tried it. Overall a good choice for... More

I do enjoy Indian food and have eaten at most of the Indian restaurants in Derby, I can honestly say 'The Chestnut Tree' is my new favourite. I'd heard from a few friends about the food there so me and my partner decided to go and try it for ourselves, it turned out to be a wise decision. A combination... More

been here twice now all the way from Northamptonshire, all the food is superbly cooked and the mixed grill is unbelievably tasty. Freshly cooked and served piping hot. Would highly recommend this restaurant, friendly atmosphere and staff

Went to the Chestnut Tree with our new team from Rolls-Royce last night. I was pleasantly surprised. Had a fantastic meal. Menu has a lot of different dishes and not many of the well known curries. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals and commented on the good value. Give it a try. I'm sure we will return at a later... More

Sixteen of us turned up at the Chestnut tree for a work night out (aka self-funded morale booster). Had a great time. We'd ordered the food before we arrived and the catering team were well organized and had everything in hand. The food was superb - everything from hot curries to burgers - plentiful portions and as advertised on the... More

We took trip advisor advice and gave it a try... The previous comments told us about the location , decor etc and the excellent food. We had very good curries, cooked especially to our requirements as I have some food allergies in an open kitchen by an excellent chef. In addition, the meal was excellent value for money.

Ordered a takeaway and they also delivered it to. Great food, same as home cooked punjabi food. A must for all curry lovers.
