I'm a regular Magna customer & a vegetarian but decided to the cheat for a change & try a meat & seafood curry, i asked if they could make me a special King Prawn & Chicken Vindaloo which isn't on the menu, this was no problem of course, it was absolutely delicious along with the Chilli Pilau Rice which isn't...

Fantastic meal at Magna. Service was excellent, attentive but unobtrusive. The Chicken Danzak was very good. Lovely main restaurant and nice touch of serving coffee in comfy lounge with sofas. Also spotted a private dining area that would seat at least 15 I think. Really excellent meal and felt comfortable the entire time despite being solo diner in quite busy... More

We ate hear on a Saturday evening without a reservation. We were lucky they could fit us in, others were turned away shortly afterwards. The restarant was very busy and evidently so was the take away part of the business judging by the number of white bags lining up on the bar and being picked up. The food was excellent... More

My kids are serious regulars here, take aways and sit ins. Staff are fantastic, food is amazing. I'd be more regular if my wife was a spice fan. Long established in the same family, a reputation built to see them over the winter months in a sea side resort. You'll not be disappointed.

A good sizeable Channa Chat was followed by a disappointing Chicken Balti. I found the main course chicken dry and the vegetables over cooked in a heavy oily sauce; for me, a Balti should be light, spicy with crisp veg. That's my view, my friends seemed reasonably happy with their meals.

We visited The Magna after reading it's positive reviews here. I concur with much of what's been said, with the food and service both being excellent. We chose the Set Menu, which gave a nice mix of starters and mains; with rice and naan; all finished off with deserts and coffee. Both main courses were delicious, with the Jalfrezi nicely... More
