“Really tasty food and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

Went on a saturday without booking and The Curry House couldnt be more accommodating. We waited briefly for a table and once seated our drinks order was taken. Unfortunately they ran out of Kingfisher which the stafd couldnt be more apologetic about and offered a coupke of bottles of beer on the house.
We had poppadoms to start and then we each ordered a different speciality. Each dish was delicious and each very different. Numerous times the staff asked how we we're doing and if we were enjoying our meal.
The bill was very reasonable, based on eating in many Indian restaurants.
One minor point, being really picky, the 'back ground' music was a little loud!!
Overall we could not fault the food or the staff and we will eat there again.

“Not that good to be honest...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

This has been a curry restaurant for years and at one point was ok. But in last few vists it's not been very good, and the last visit we made was poor.
The food is ok ish but not as good as other average Indian restaurants in town, and the selection is also average. I last went with a group of 6 and all of us sent the meal back due to having hairs in the food and one person had a finger nail. The food was also cold and we went in a quite Thursday evening so they were not busy. We thought we would give them the benefit of doubt but it seems that it had just got worse.

The decor is deceiving because when you look closely you can see damp and cracks which is starting to spread, and we saw three cockroaches in the men's toilet which is not good.

Will not be going again and not recommending it to anyone afraid. Better Indian restaurants in town by far compared to this one.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Going to be short and to the point here. Picked up a take-away over Christmas and I can honestly say it was some of the best Indian food I have ever tasted. High praise indeed from someone who eats a lot of Indian Food. Haven't sat it but intend to rectify this very soon.

“Great little curry house.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Really enjoyed it here. Good atmosphere & friendly staff, the foods not bad either. I asked for my jalfrezzi to be extra hot with lots of coriander and they didn't disappoint.
Definatly one of Shrewsbury's Indian restaurants
