Firstly this is NOT one of your bog-standard Indian curry houses that you go to with the lads after a night on the beer. The food is freshly cooked for each order to regional recipes from the sub-continent - full of flavour, herbs and spices. Although the baltis and standard madras are available, I would strongly suggest that you go... More

The biggest selection of curries and the best tasting. A really pleasant night out with excellent food and service.

Got a takeaway and the food was cold (I live 3mins from restaurant) and naan was burnt. I was very embarrassed as we were entertaining. Also it is quite a bit more expensive than other curry outlets in Banbury

Well where to start. We booked this restaurant back in April and confirmed 24 hours before that we would be attending. The owner took it upon himself to then give our table to someone else because we didnt confirm by 3pm on the same day. At no point were we informed that this is what we needed to do. They... More

Nice food, fairly priced. I paid £25-30 for two main courses, one naan bread and two beers. Food was fine, but the serving of the vegetarian main course was rather small, more like a starter.

We love having a sheesh mahal takeaway. It is a real treat. We have 1 chicken biryani between 2 of us and as it comes with a veg curry and has rice in it we feel that is enough. We share 1 peshwari naan which is so tasty and some veg pakoras that come with sauces which we use with... More

WELL... I had heard of this restaurant over the years from their constant radio advertisement, I like Banbury FM for their grooves you see. So, my lady friend and I decided to pay them a visit. From outside, it looks don. One of those proper old, grade two listed buildings, marvellous. Walked in, well, it left much to be desired.... More

I was taken here by a work colleague and although I had heard of it - they advertise extensively on local radio - had never sampled it before. Set in quite a grand, stone-built semi-detached house in the heart of Banbury - the access is up some stone steps to the entrance lobby where we were greeted by a straight-faced... More

Delicious food and a good range of dishes to meet most tastes. Great service, non intrusive but very helpful when required. Set in a lovely Victorian house. Very spacious.
