One wasn't too taken with it, however nice atmosphere, ambience and friendly team of people. Never once did they bother us, still very... read more

My wife and I go to this restaurant about once every two months. Always a good welcome, good service and reasonably priced. Never had cause to complain over the quality/quantity of the meals.

Tried this place as it's now the only Indian restaurant in my town. Mushroom pilau had been fried... In dirty oil. It was dark brown, with small black bits and tasted awful. Naan bread was stale and hard like toast, had no flavour either (meant to be garlic). Jalfrezi was also very greasy and the 2 mouthfuls I had has... More

Never had a bad meal here. Really, really lovely food and the Chicken Tikka Passanda is sublime. Would highly recommend.

The food here was lovely, the staff were very attentive and helpful! However some of the bowls that our food came in were chipped and we expected the place to be a little cleaner. Other than the minor hygiene problems everything was very good and were definitely considering a second visit during our stay in Berwick!

During our recent 4 night stay at Berwick upon Tweed; we visited the Magna Tandoori restaurant twice - we are very much curry lovers. Spotlessly clean, with attentive staff; our food was more than delicious so much so we had to do a return visit. We definitely had some very good curry dishes and would not hesitate to recommend a...

We have been eating in this family run restaurant for longer than we care to remember and it's always good. Lovely owners and staff and a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. We'll never tire of this place.

The restaurant is nicely decorated and I liked the fact the tables are not all crammed in together. It was a good job we arrived when we did because not long after it was all pretty... More
