We ordered a takeaway in advance for 11 people. Service was fantastic, staff helped carry the food to the car. The food was delicious, fresh salad, some unusual and interesting dishes along with old favourites with a slight twist.

Went for a family birthday and cannot fault the service from all the staff. A very friendly place where nothing is too much trouble. Without any pre arrangement they came up with a lovely chocolate birthday cake and balloons which was much appreciated. Made for a lovely evening . Thank you

Went there on my latest UK visit. Fantastic food, homely atmosphere. Best lamb jalfrezi I have ever had. Looking forward to eating there again.

Had a great meal tonight with friends at friends! My only criticism is that it was so busy we were squashed in a little and as it was busy the noise level was considerable. Great food, great service 😬

My friend goes here on a regular basis and recommended we ate here for a catch up. I was really pleased to see some good vegetarian options on the menu and wasn't disappointed on arrival. It's a very nice setting and quite a romantic feel. The service was friendly and attentive but not annoying. The food came and it was... More

We've been coming to this place on and off for a few years, standards are always constantly good. Service is friendly, attentive and efficient. Food has always been prepared and presented with care. The specials feel like they are all made freshly, just for you - not just another spice combination of the same old sauce.... We'll definitely be back... More

Although I chose only to have a takeaway on this occasion, the manager and staff were very welcoming and helpful. Not just making small talk but showing genuine friendliness and obviously very keen to make me feel at home. The curry order was very nice, a bit more expensive than my usual venue but overall a pleasant experience and I... More

Another great evening spent at Friends. The staff make you feel very welcome and greet us warmly, recognising us from earlier visits. The restaurant is always clean and the service is exceptional. This alone sets it apart from other Indian restaurants, but it's the food that makes this place worth a significant detour if you are not local. The kebab... More
