Had a few take always from here and the food is normally pretty good. NOT this time though, been over 6 months since we got food from here and the food was terrible. The chicken was dry as in VERY dry. The mint yogurt that used to be fantastic tasted watered down and the samosas that used to blow me... More

I rang for a takeaway, the order was taken but the guy hung up before getting my name, telling me how long it would be, telling me the price and without saying goodbye. So I rang back to get this information and they made me feel like an idiot. It was like getting blood out of a stone so I... More

Pick up a Purbani and they won't disappoint. Absolutely Devine. Delivery prompt and delivered piping hot. We had a selection of different dishes all were so good.

Polite efficient service. The gentleman serving shook my hand and welcomed my custom and sent me off with a free bottle of drink! The food was excellent, lamb was melt in the mouth, the flavours were well balanced. Will be going back

My friend introduced me to this restaurant last year and I was impressed by their selection of curry dishes. A bit pricey but then it was Guildford. Poppadums really cooked to perfection.

Waited there 5 mins and frequently said "Hello" and no one came forward. Telephone rang someone immediately came, took a large order by telephone. I asked if my simple order would be placed before after and got a shrug of the shoulders and no smile. (RUDE) End of story, won't try that place again and won't recommend my friends either.

First visit since moving into the neighbourhood - very, very tasty takeaway! Actually can't find any fault. The one thing that they could do is get a licence so you can have a cold Kingfisher while you wait! Will be visiting again soon.

Purbani always provide an excellent take-away with consistently good flavours and textures, polite friendly service and free delivery. There are some new menu items: Vegetable Platter starter Butter Chicken Bengal Fish Jalfrezi and Captain Naga chicken or lamb. I had Chicken Naga Lamb tonight. It has a thick rich sauce with a pleasant hot taste of Naga chillies. No more... More

The shop itself doesn't look too impressive but the food is delicious - far better than other Indian takeaways in the area (& I've tried a few). Some really lovely flavours going on in the meals. Delivery drivers are always friendly & courteous too.
