“Fantastic food and great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

My husband and I brought our 2 daughters ( aged 9 and 6) and mother in law here for a family meal on a busy Saturday night. The children's menu is excellent either a mild curry and/ or rice or the usual nuggets and fish fingers etc... Both girls loved it! The poppodoms, roti's and naan breads were gorgeous, as was the Thai mango salad (so fresh) and the Karahi chicken and biryani. The staff are really attentive and very friendly.. Can't recommend it highly enough

“Stunning.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We chose not to have a traditional Christmas dinner in 2012 and opted for a Bukhara take out instead.
We ordered Lamb Chops, Onion Bhaji, Handi Gosht Laziz, Rice and Naans. The staff are so welcoming and helpful with menu choices and the food is out of this world. We eat from Bukhara once a week and have never had anything less than stunning.
We are yet to find Indian cuisine that is as stunning as this. A real treat whether you eat in or out. This is where we will be getting our Christmas meal from next year...without a doubt.

“Superb food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Quite simply the best, authentic Indian food for a long way. The menu is not huge but everything is done well and the prices are fair. As (for me anyway) is often the case desserts are less compelling than mains and starters. No alcohol - which isn't an issue as they have excellent Lassi and a selection of juices etc. Almost always busy and deservedly so. The quality of the takeaway food ( same menu - bit cheaper) is also very high - good portions and ready on the time given.

“My favourite curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

I've eaten a lot of curry over the years and the food served at the Bukhara is consistently of the highest standard, top marks. Starters are the best I've had in any restaurant and the Kahari main course superb.
