1st night in Colchester

Looking for somewhere to eat, not too far of a walk from the hotel. Outside looks like an old English pub. Inside more like an Italian restaurant. But don't let the looks fool you, this is an excellent Indian. Had popadoms, samosas and onion bagees to start, sauces being the only let down. Main... read more

Saturday curry - first time there. Limited menu, over priced, half the items on the menu they didn't have - curry sauces weren't great. Staff was friendly but we would not go back again.

Delivery arrived, the delivery driver was unsure what he was delivering until we told him... Food was delivered and we found the 'large' is just a medium. That or someone made a mistake. A real shame, the food was tasty but the delivery and service via just eat was atrocious. I certainly wouldn't both again, sadly.

We visited the Mirchi Rasoi speculatively on a Friday night, and were very surprised that we were the only customers. The menu was uninspiring and the dishes were expensive compared to the local competition. We ordered popadums, and were surprised that the chutney tray consisted solely of a small serving of mango chutney with a small yoghurt-based dip. We have... More

Except for the kulfi, we had the standard fare from the menu. It is designed for the English palate, and so was a little less "hot" than we're used to in Australia. Nevertheless, it was delicious food - freshly prepared, and both tasty and delicately flavoured. The staff were more than happy to discuss the various dishes with us. They... More

Trying to reinvent Indian food but not very good service or food. The chutney tray was unusual with unappetizing colours and flavours.

Needing a takeaway meal but wanting a change from our regular venues, my wife and I searched online and decided to give this restaurant a first try. Immediate hurdle was trying to order by telephone, the number given on their website was wrong! On arrival it was very quiet, only one table in use, is this an indication of the... More

Veggies are usually well catered for by Indian restaurants and the Mirchi Rasoi has some more adventurous items on the menu as well as the standard fare. If the owner, a very friendly lady, is overseeing the restaurant, expect her to advise you on dishes you may not have tried before. She sends waiters running into the kitchen to tell... More
