Best Indian Restaurant in town

Nemonthron has been the main Indian restaurant we've used for many years and it has been consistently good throughout. Good range of dishes, fragrant and tasty with a good spectrum of spiciness. Definitely recommended.

Normally make my own Indian food from scratch as I'm really fussy about hot, spicy food, so it's rare for us to have a takeaway. Anyway, tonight we thought we'd take a chance with the Memonthron. I asked if I could have an extra mild pasanda, they were very kind on the phone, and indeed it was very mild, but... More

Admittedly I chop and change Indian takeaways often depending on what everyone fancies. Been going here for years- shame recently/or not so recent now the head chef has changed. Would do anything to have the original Chicken Tikka Kashmiri Musala back! Always friendly, warm atmosphere and busy on the weekends.

Hadn't been to this restaurant for over 15 years, use to be one of my favourites. Went back there for a meal last weekend and although the layout has hardly changed, the food seemed to be somewhat lacking in authenticity. We cook curries at home on a regular basis, and don't know whether that affects our opinion, but honestly, we... More

A slightly old fashioned Indian, or retro, if you prefer; the service was good and the food, from an extensive menu, was good, suitably spiced, and presented piping hot. Not the smartest or trendiest, but long established, and a good meal.

Used to love this place. Gone down hill. Food still pretty good. Service average waiters look miserable. Gets busy Friday s and Saturday. Other places better.
