Food was good, but maybe we should have opted for the takeaway service as the service was poor! A very uninterested waiter/owner who just did not want us to be there. No smile, thank you or even any effort of customer service. We was Randomly...offered a discount on the bill, probably because of the bad service, I’m still confused why I got a discount, I didn’t ask. Was happy to get out of there.More

We loved everything because the food was amazing . The best Indian food in Reading in my opinion. You are missing out if you do not either eat there or have their food as a takeaway option.

Nice friendly staff, simple decor. Have been coming here for sit down meal and takeaway past year. Mixed grill is good and would recommend the chicken tikka balti and jalfrezi - pretty hot, naans and rice are decent. They don't seem to get the lamb...dishes right for my liking feel like boiled and sauce added , meat doesn't taken on the flavour. Happy to give another lamb dish ago next time.More

A perfect curry in every way. From the mushroom rice to the lamb Bhuna , chicken korma , everything is perfect. It is a restaurant too but at the moment it can only do takeaway. If you have not had any sublime food from this...amazing establishment then you have not truly lived. This a must place to order and when it is safe then you have to experience one of the best restaurants in Berkshire.More

We dined here for the first time and were not disappointed. The menu offered a good choice and was reasonably priced - with a special discount still on offer! As we were the only people dining inside early on a Wednesday evening (the takeaway was...busier), the food ordered was quickly delivered and the service was friendly. The restaurant lacked atmosphere, but this was possibly due to the early time we dined, but having said that it was spotlessly clean and very Covid aware.More

We didn't have high expectations and my husband and I are ordering the same meal from various curry houses to see which one is the best close to us. I have to say the presentation, the flavours and the value for money, was excellent. I...highly recommend.More

Visited Curry Chef for our first Eat out to Help out meal. When we got there the place was empty. We soon realised why. Our starters, chicken chaat puree and prawn puree were great but the mains, Chicken Biryani was anything but. The biryani looked...and tasted as if it was plain rice with a bowl of curry tipped over it.More

We visited tonight and thoroughly enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The staff were very attentive and polite. The food was reasonably priced and excellent. It was served quickly and tasted amazing. Definitely the best Indian restaurant we have ever visited.
