Very friendly staff, good atmosphere and great food

Had a bit of difficulty finding the place at first but well worth the effort. Great food and really nice atmosphere. Impressed with the price, only cost me £100 for 8 people and that was with alcohol. Really good food and the staff were brilliant. Even my picky indian parents were happy with the... read more

Was there with my partner Saturday evening. Fantastic customer service, nice clean environment, quality fresh food, reasonable prices. We have been here many times and every time we have had a great experience. The owner is clearly passionate about food, customer service and attention to detail. The place was spotless, as should be. The only thing that baffles me is... More

Me and the Mrs had a great time here. A lovely place, good staff and most importantly really good food. I think it is safe to say I had the best Ostrich and Camel dishes I have ever had. Love the menu that has lots of new and eclectic dishes and all cooked with a nice Asian twist. I think... More

In Kettering for a family get together and fancied a curry. Chose Exotic Dining based on the good reviews. We were not disappointed, the menu has so much variety and some unusual choices (ostrich, kangeroo etc) as well as all the old favourites. The quality was very high and the staff were all helpful and attentive. Would definitely go back... More

A group of us went for an impromptu meal after a get together drink. Welcome very warming and seated quickly. All food starters & mains great. Would recommend the potato starter shaped as a pear. Only fault was we ordered coconut rice and they tried serving us onion rice, quite a difference but tried to say it was coconut!!! Quite... More

Our martial arts club enjoyed a great night out at Exotic Dining and all had fantastic meals. The waiters were great, though not always totally sure what the meal was! The cost was fair though none of us went for the £300+ gold meal for 2! Heartily recommend

I dined here on the 29 May at a lunch time with a couple of friends. The service was first class as was the piping hot food. We chose a dish each off the lunch menu which is amazingly priced at £5.95 each and shared as we were keen to try it all. We ordered poppadoms as an extra side,... More

We found the restaurant on the Tripadvisor, it had good reviews, so gave a trial. They have a wide selection of curries from the classic's to some house specialities on reasonable price. The service was also good. I had a chicken Rogan Josh, which was excellent. If I am around Kettering next time, I will return again.

My starter was the signature sea bass dish which is simply sublime. The bass was cooked perfectly with crispy skin, succulent flesh and subtle, sweet spicing. I had nilgiri cod machli for my main course which was indicated as being hot on the menu and it is, being between madras and vindaloo hot which was great for me. The green... More
