I have been using the Crown of India for over 10 years and although not as regular as in past years it is always a pleasure to go there.
I tend to have more take-aways but this is where I feel they win hands down over the competition. Excellent food that is always consistent and very good value. They don't deliver which is a good thing as I go and collect the food, have a pint whilst waiting and always have a chat with the owner.
I would suggest that some of the bad reviews are people trying to help the competition! Just look at some of their grammar for a start, very poor.
My only criticism is that it is very cramped inside particularly near the front door. There is more room up at the back though.
All of the staff are superb and we regularly see them outside of 'work' as they are all local people and always take the time to say hello to my two children who they have known since they were babies!
One particular night a friend and I were collecting a take-away after being out for the day and there was a long delay from our taxi company. The owner promptly drove us home!
For my wife's 40th a couple of years a go they also prepared the food for our party at home. Not something they advertise but very good value and great quality.
