Good curry

As Indian restaurants go this is pretty good, food hot, fresh and well spiced. We usually opt for a takeaway.

We thought we'd give the Crown of India a try on our search for a decent takeaway in the area and will definitely not be returning. My husband ordered chapatis only to discover when they arrived that they were out of a packet. In all of our many years of ordering Indian food (and we are talking a very long... More

Went here for a last decision curry as it was close by and the pub had stopped serving food. What a great find as never been here before, the curry was delicious and the service was excellent. Looking forward to going back again soon. From the outside it looks a bit worrying but don't let that put you off. I... More

I have been getting takeaways from here since 1999, I realised recently that I've only ever had one curry from here, the chilli chicken masala, it's my all time favourite curry! I recently had a sit in meal with my brother, he had something else but was very impressed.

I have had a few take outs from the Crown and always been totally happy. So decided to eat in for once and was more than pleased. Tried the Naga for a change as I fancied something spicy and it was really nice. Hot but not s the flavour of the curry was masked and it was really good. It... More

Had planned on a take away but spotted the £10.95 mid week meal offer - so decided to eat in. This is our favourite Indian and it didn't disappoint! Crispy and well filled samosas & delicious kebab platter to start. Chicken madras - perfectly spicy & chicken korma was melt in the mouth curry comfort food! Naan bread soft and... More

I like to use local restaurants and used numerous times before. Booked delivery early and 45 minutes ended up being 1 hour 15 minutes so not a good start. Good was hot but just not the quality I have had before, felt a bit of a rushed job and no reason should be worse if delivered than eating in or... More

Takeaway was delivered later than the promised hour. The food was cold and tasteless. Hardly any spinach in saag aloo and the lamb bhuna was tasteless. In fairness the manager was very good and said it was not like the chef as his cooking is normally consistent. They would not refund but offered the same meal again free of charge
