So why the best curry house? Let me explain; The finest take away curry's that I have ever had. The Aloo Gobi is to die for! Home made sauces; not from a factory and fresh chopped herbs and wonderful rice dishes. For me though I love the experimental dishes; I can ask and get various fusion dishes without a fuss... More

We stayed in Horton-in-Ribblesdale for the 3 Peaks challenge and having seen reviews of local pubs decided to order a take-away, easy to order, was ready on arrival for pick up and all 8 found the food excellent..!!

This is a friendly Indian restaurant with great food at a great price. You are invited to bring your own beer or wine and they will provide glasses and an opener. Both Indian restaurants in Settle have the same system and we couldn't decide which was better. Both are excellent.

We opted for a take-away as the sun was shining and we wanted to make the most of it. The staff were pleasant and helpful and gave us time to select our food. They informed us how long it would be before it was ready, so we went for a stroll while we waited. It was well-packed in leak-proof boxes... More

Plenty on the plate in this Indian! You won't leave here feeling hungry for a while. Bring your own drinks policy which works really well. We all had popadoms, pickle tray, curry, rice and naan bread for £15 including a tip! So perfectly priced! Great for any occasion. Very friendly staff!

After reading mixed reviews on trip advisor, we decided to give it a go as we were staying in the area and arriving late we didn't want to start cooking. There were 3 of us so we ordered a chicken korma and a passanda with all the extras. When we got to the cottage ravenous we ate straight away so... More
