We used this place quite regularly and the food was always really good. Itwas one of my favorite takeaways . howver it appears to have had a refurbishment and got new chef's . it's reasonably cheap but the food is now average take away standard . a little disappointed.

Ordered from here over the phone and it arrived two hours late! Despite the fact that we only live less than two miles away from the establishment. Made a number of calls to the management who did not apologise or show any concern whatsoever. The food arrived cold; had a lamb korma the sauce was extremely thick and lacked lamb... More

This place seems to be under new management, as previously it was a South Indian takeaway and the menu has now completely changed: Ordered a takeaway from here, for collection, firstly disappointed that they were unable to take payment by debit card, resulting in having to walk to the nearest cash point. I had ordered a Shahi Paneer, which although... More

The previous chefs of 'indian Empress' have moved now so don't mix the two up. If you want authentic excellent indian food with good service visit chippy with an indian on Gulson road. We regularly make the longer trip but it's well worth it.

Enjoyed our first take away from Indian Empress last night. A friendly welcome with advice about different eating options. Food took about 20 minutes to prepare which was great as you could see the meal being made from fresh- no pre prepared vats of curry in sight! Took the food home and enjoyed everything we had. The food tasted fresh... More
