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

I went here once, in my continual search for good curry. The food was good, not great. It was very expensive for the quality of the fayre and the service was terrible.

Food was very nice, but the staff seemed very nervous to be serving us. Didn't know when to take our plates, or when to take drinks orders etc. Just looked very uncomfortable to be there. Wouldn't go again.

The waiter was very helpful, answering all of our questions about the menu, which was not translated into English descriptions. He suggested a mixed starter plate for the four of us, which was absolutely delicious - sausage, lamb, beef, fried vegetables in chickpea flour. Two of us had the chicken korma with vegetable rice. The korma was excellent - soft,... More

Just had the best Indian food in Colchester. Read all the TA reviews of 'great Indian curries etc. in Colchester...' and always disappointed. Except for now. Thank God there is somewhere to go where you don't get typical curry splodge and 'anything will do after a couple of pints' muck. The waiter knows his stuff here and it really is... More
