Had a great meal, the menu isn't as extensive as other restaurants of the same nature. But the waiters are so good that you just order what you want. The staff are very attentive but do not stand over you. The quality of the food is excellent and even though they charge more than most Indians it is worth it.... More

I've been going to this restaurant for many years and it is the best curry that you will ever eat. The food is always amazing. We have had trouble with our orders every now and then but at the end of the day you go to a restaurant for the food and I have been to over 50 curry restaurants... More

I visited Darjeeling Heights with a friend last week and enjoyed the experience very much. To begin with booking was simple and straightforward and when we arrived parking was easy as there is a car park adjacent. We were greeted warmly, shown to our table and drinks arrived quickly and nicely served. The food was magnificent and tasted fresh and... More

This Indian restaurant is well worth a visit. You are welcomed at the door and there is a small bar area where you can have a drink first. The tables are laid with pristine white linen accompanied with polished cutlery and sparkling glasses. The menu is comprehensive with a short explanation of each dish. The service is very attentive with... More

Been here several times. Good food, and service is always good. However yesterday we went along for the Sunday buffet - Waiter seemed to think it was acceptable to stand at the end of the table of six and ask us to pass plates along the line and when we had finished again thought it was acceptable to have us...

Table for three, not pre-booked just a walk in (Thursday Eve) 7pm Welcome area, clean & tidy, all very modern. Prominently positioned on the A2 with small car park to the side and rear; looks smart from the outside as it does inside. Much better than your usual 'Indian', with some different dishes on the menu again nicely presented......but then... More

We have been going to this restaurant for the past couple of years. Most restaurants vary in quality and service from one visit to another, but not Darjeeling Heights. Exceptional Indian food, wonderful service and reasonable prices. You might find similar quality in London but if you want genuine North Indian cuisine of the very best quality then you have...
