“Great food, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Came here while staying overnight in the area and chose Karahi express as we were up for a curry, and the reviews err pretty good.

We weren't disappointed. You know a curry is going to taste great when you can see the chefs hard at work at the front of the restaurant, the place is full and we're basically the only non-Indian guests!

Cousins we were with loved and worked in India a while ago, and said it felt very authentic - Bollywood music blaring from the TVs, and Indian families all out together, from youngsters to grandparents.

Recommend if you're in the area...

“Good Fried Items & Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We had to try Karahi after all the good reviews here and it seems it be always busy. The restaurant was very crowded and tables were almost all connected (tight space). It was so loud and then the TVs were also playing Indian songs that we could barely hear each other talk (sitting across the table). For starter we ordered Reshmi Kabobs definitely worth it, but chicken tikka was cooked to the perfection however no taste. Mango lassi Jug was £10 and you can tell it's not made fresh (it tasted like they bought a £2 mango lassi from the market). Oh ya even though the name is Karahi Express, they serve the tiny little cute karahi which is hardly enough for one person and priced at around £9-£10. Overall poor seating set up and a little less for the buck.

“Wow wow wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

I'd read about this place on here and based on the reviews me and a work colleague made our way over. He being a connoisseur of good Indian food

It's a modern style restaurant with long bench seating arrangement and an open kitchen. The staff are really friendly and have great knowledge of their menu, you can take your own booze and don't pay a corkage.

The starters are huge possibly bigger than the mains. I had the lamb Karahi for main course the meat was amazing and had so much flavour.

For poopadoms starters and mains for 2 of us it came to £30 an absolute bargain

Can't wait to come back here

“Top marks”

My colleague and I went after reading reviews on tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The food, staff and service were excellent and the atmosphere was very welcoming. We shall definitely return next time we are in town.

“fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

staff are excellent and the quick service. The mixed grill starter is fantastic value, I would say it is enough for four. The main courses are large portions, and by bringing your own alcoholic drinks you save on the bar prices.
