Meal of average quality. Pickles with popadoms rather meagre and butter chicken tikka a rather off putting pink colour. Tiger beer very expensive at £6 a pint. Service good.

I don't belive you have reviewed the right Curry Mahal as our butter chicken is not pink and we do not sell Tiger beer on Draft at £6 a pint More

Visited on a Sunday night and it was very quiet. Did pass on a Friday and it was busy though. Round onion bajis which I always prefer to the flat ones and chicken patia was our order. Both nice if somewhat spicier than what we're used to. The vegetable pilau rice and plain nan were excellent. Prices reasonable and Kingfisher... More

A first rate meal at Curry Mahal tonight. We had not booked so decided to try early. This was a great decision as by 7 o'clock the restaurant was buzzing. Excellent service provided faultless food. Portions were 'healthy' so should probably have shared rice. The flavours of the curries were delicious and, the fresh out of the oven, naan breads... More

My partner & I have discovered this place which is an absolute gem. Every meal we have is beautifully cooked & full of meat or king prawns. Our favourites are Tandoori mixed balti and king prawn mosala with boiled egg. The naan breads and rices are all top quality too. Highly recommended and by far the nicest Indian Restaurant in...

Absolutely loved this place. Starters were the best I've ever had in am Indian restaurant and the mains were delicious. Very generous portions. Atmosphere was nice, staff were polite and friendly. My only gripe - and it has nothing to do with the food - is that there is very limited parking available. But overall excellent and I can't wait... More

Can't really fault this place apart from the interior which is a little basic, that aside, great food, attentive staff and good value. Also seems leagues ahead of its nearest competitor, dil raj just down the road. Will definitely go again.

Food was absolutely amazing. Swift service and really tasty food. Portions are absolutely huge so you want to share a rice or naan with someone else 😀

Went in early on a thursday night; first time in 12 months as we were in the area. Restaurant was very quiet with only one other table, but lots of take aways going out. Have to say this was the best curry i have had in ages, everything was fresh and tasted fantastic.

Visited here after many years of abstinence in favour of another local curry house. The food was excellent and much better than we had been getting for many years around the corner (locals will know which other curry house I am referring to). Will definitely visit again. Great staff and very welcoming.
