“Consistently excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Over the few years we've been to all the local curry houses and we always end up coming back to the Lajawab as it’s the best. The food is always excellent, well prepared and spiced like you’d find in a proper curry house. The service is great and they've cobra on draft, thinking about it we may well end up there tonight for a takeaway.

“Best curry house in Macclesfield”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

I've been to all the local curry houses and this is the best - always good food, friendly service and very reasonable prices. A restaurant for proper curry fans, not the bland slop you get elsewhere. They do takeaway as well! try it.

“Repeat offender....of the best variety!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

I cannot stay away from this place. I take the girlfriend out for a curry every two or three weeks and we most likely end up at Lajawaab. Other places we enjoy in the macclesfield area are Shalimar, The Viceroy in Bollington and Eastern Revive in Wilmslow. But Lajawaab is our favourite! I guess you could say we have become regulars and we've got to know the staff well. They are friendly; attentive and willing to go the extra mile.
The starters are awesome - my girlfriend is addicted to their chicken chat (they know she's ordering it so they dont even have to ask)! The onion bharjis, fish starter and the kebabs r always spot on - with the exception of the lamb perhaps.
The mains are good value, great size portions - im partucularly fond of the chicken rezzala, balti, korai, galouti, hara wala masala, but generally the offering is diverse and they are all packed with taste. There's something for everyone.
Ive taken colleagues out there too and they all seemed sceptical at first - not sure why? But they all raved about it after.
The midweek special is just the deal.
Enjoy!
