Love this place

We've eaten here a few times & had takeaways. The food is very good and it's reasonably priced too. We find it cheaper to eat here than many Indian restaurants in town. Maybe because the decor is still stuck in the 1980's but we don't mind that. It reminds us of our courting days visiting this... read more

I have been coming here for over 20 years and have never tasted better food. I live in Sunderland and travel here at least 3 times a year just to eat here. Staff are first class too.

Always great service. Decor is a little dated but the good food more than makes up for it! Would definitely recommend.

I visited the Stanwix Tandoori on Monday evening with 4 friends and we all enjoyed a delicious meal. The poppadoms and chutneys were great, lovely hot lime pickle! I had lamb rogan josh for my main and it tasted so fresh, it was beautiful. The service was absolutely excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The best Indian restaurant I've... More

This is my first overnight stay in Carlisle and I had great plans to find a Thai restaurant I had been told about. Fortunately the weather is awful and I can't face another wet walk into town, so after a quick check on the TripAdvisor app I've ended up here (a couple of hundred metres from where I'm staying). Decor... More

Yet again a fantastic meal at this restaurant, the place has been in operation for over thirty years and is still producing the goods. We visited as a group of four and not one of the group were disapointed with their meal which was outstanding with particular reference to the Chingri Moshla. Efficient and friendly service and nothing is to... More

Our party of 4 all really enjoyed our meals there. The staff are very attentive, efficient and polite. I'd definitely recommend the paneer Karachi, which wasn't on the menu but they made it on my request. Excellent value too!

Visited as we were staying overnight in a nearby guesthouse. Arrived without booking and given a warm welcome. Decor quite old fashioned but I actually really like this. It was very clean. Service excellent and friendly with minimum waiting times. 3 of us dining, we all had different meals and all were lovely with good sized portions at a reasonable... More

Last time we visited this restaurant was a few years ago, we didn't find it over exciting so have never bothered going back. It is our 'local' however and a couple of weeks ago we decided to try it again. It was very good indeed. Very tasty food, served sizzling hot, in fact lava hot, good portions, good service. Nothing... More
