“One of the best curries I've had for ages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I have known this restaurant for many years, under several reincarnations. Being a rather compact establishment, the table spacing is still a little less than generous, and therefore the noise level was a bit high for easy conversation, but hey, isn't that better than sitting in dead silence?

Tonight I had one of the best Indian meals for years. I normally opt for hot, but this time had the Lamb Tikka and the Princess Cottage Exotica, .... "Succulent pieces of chicken cooked in a delightful sauce of coconut, mango, pineapple and bananas to produce a fruity dish which is not too sweet" .......... and it was amazing.

The younger waiter we had was very attentive and easy to talk to, but I thought the manager a bit offhand. (perhaps nervous or worried?) It didn't cause a problem, and I'll definitely go back again soon.

“Mixed Review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Being honest, i've not long moved to the area but have eaten here on a couple of occassion and had several takeaways from here...

In general the food isnt bad and not badly priced, however when they get busy they really struggle...., i went there to collect a takeaway last week and two people had been waiting for over an hour, at the same time some of my friends were in there and had waited nearly 3hrs to have their starters and main meals, that said mine arrived in a timely fashion so couldnt complain...

The other point i would make is that the restaurant is very small and people are packed in very tight to each other, its almost impossible to have a conversation due to the noise level.

Overall the food is good (not too heavy sauces), you are difinitely not paying for the decour...but would/will come back again. From speaking to other people, the Moghul over the road is meant to be better but alot more expensive...

“Best curry in Bagshot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

We get a take away from Princess cottage nearly every week and think the food is delicious. The manager and waiters are very polite and friendly and the food is amazing. The chicken is cooked superbly and all of the food is full of flavour. It is definitely our favourite Indian restaurant. Inside the restaurant is small and quirky and has a nice atmosphere.

“Very tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Been visiting for several years, not to badly priced, buffet nights good value. I love the chilli masala. Not to keen on the chicken masala a bit to soup like! I personally like the quirky interior and that its small.
