We regularly visit the Magna with our two girls, but my husband and I have been going for over 20 years. We always receive a very friendly welcome from the Khan brothers...nothing is too much trouble. Good prices and lovely food. Would highly recommend this restaurant and we hope to keep visiting for many more years to come

First impressions were okay on arrival as decor was acceptable but not lavish - bog standard. The table that we had booked was not ready for us arriving so we then had to sit on a couch waiting for our pre booked table that was not ready. Eventually we got taken to the table and cutlery & crockery was missing... More

We visited here on 1st January very few places open for food. The drinks are over priced however the food was great. We were served by three or four different staff. The majority of staff could do with smiling and acknowledge a thank you for all patrons not just the adult men. The food was great, the pickle tray is... More

Great Value, take away ready on time. Nice decor, lots of locals complimenting staff. Don't be deterred by double yellow lines outside. Huge & varied menu.

Very, very good Indian food. N.B. The medium dishes are much milder than I have had in other Indian restaurants. The restaurant stands out for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the menu is vast, there is a huge choice of different-style Indian dishes. Secondly, the restaurant is in a converted pub which still retains its original bar.

Upon entrance it looked like a very upmarket establishment, with very prompt service from the staff, the number of staff at this point outweighed that of customer. We were sat at a table on the right hand side of the restaurant and promptly were approached for drinks. At this point I was thinking that the service we were due to... More

My wife & I ate here earlier this year . . . she enjoyed her meal . . . I wasn't impressed . . . not very bad, but most definitely nothing special. So, this weekend, I decided to try again, this time ordering a takeaway for my son & myself. The starters (samosa, sheek kebab & chicken pakora) were... More

After reading previous reviews we were looking forward to our experience. The starters were good, but the main dishes were a little disappointing. The restaurant was very quiet and the back ground music created no atmosphere for a Friday night.
