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.

Have used this take away restaurant for many years both with collection and delivery. Always excellent food and delivery always prompt. No complaints at all.

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.

According to the website it's an 'exceptional Indian takeaway' and you 'will always receive a warm welcome any time of the day'. Well I called when it was still apparently open for a takeaway and was told it was closed. Never again
