We have visited this restaurant many times over the years and our recent visit was excellent. Service was fast, attentive and professional. The restaurant was clean and tidy and had a nice atmosphere even though we visited on a quieter weekday evening. The food was delicious. We had poppadoms with pickles to start followed by prawns on puri which were... More

Food was bland, nan breads were flat like pancakes, service was ok but you were kept waiting ages between courses so you could drink more beer. Sorry but can't recommend it. Curry Leaf much better and better priced too.

It's been a long while since we visited on The Khyber in Epworth The place was the same as we remembered am the staff were very welcoming attentive. The place had a quietish buzz with a birthday party enjoying the occasion. We were served drinks and offered menus in quick time and left without pressure to peruse the extensive menu.... More

Seven of us went on a Thursday evening for a family birthday meal, and it could not have been better. The premises are attractive, comfortable, and very clean, The food was really tasty, and arrived without any delay. The bill was quite reasonable for what we had. But the waiters deserve an extra mention for the outstanding service provided throughout... More

We visited the Khyber for a friends Christmas do this year. The food is the best Indian food I have tasted for a very long time. The staff are very welcoming and the atmosphere is calm and relaxing. I will definitely make a return visit when back in Epworth.

Stayed in Sunny Scunny on business and certainly didn't fancy the usual shed food next door the the hotel, so asked the receptionist for a recommendation - particularly an Indian. The Khyber was undoubtedly the one to go for, so we were told - So we did. We took a punt and beetled off to Epworth about 6 or 7... More

Visited here with two colleagues from work whilst on business in Scunthorpe. We always ask for recommendations for the best Indian restaurants in the area and were given The Khyber. Although it was about 11 miles from where we were staying it was worth the visit to this charming village and restaurant. The service was very good and the staff... More

Really is one of the best curries ever. Been quite a few times now and can't wait for my next visit which will be in about 2 weeks. The food is exceptional as are the staff and surroundings. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to all. Lovely, friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble for them.

I've been to India many times and love Indian Food,I went to the Khyber with my family and it was a pleasant experience. Food was fresh, well cooked and my kids loved their big portions. I am Italian and when the waiter recommended an Italian wine, Valpolicella Ripasso, I gave him a go. The spicy food paired very well with... More

We were here for a birthday, a party of 5, and overall it was quite nice. Good value. The food was solid, well executed across the range, if not mind blowing, service good though improvements can always be made, the wine list utter rubbish (but then we had no expectations here). Would we come back? Yes. Would it have to... More
