2 of us - 0ne a meat-eater and one a vegetarian - both got really tasty food, and the right amount of it, despite our quite different tastes and appetites. I wish I could remember what we ate (it was a couple of months back, now!?), but I do remember there were a good number of dishes that you don't... More

I visited the Magna Tandoori when on a short mid week break in the area. We ordered sizzling chicken tikka and a mixed sashlik. Both were delicious. We especially liked the lamb in the mixed dish. Our food arrived promptly and the young waiters were extreme polite and friendly. I would definitely visit again if I was in the area.

Had a takeaway this evening as a last night holiday treat but was on the whole disappointed with the blandness of the food. We may as well have had the same meal 🙁🙁

Visited whilst on vacation in the area. Is a bit like walking into a school canteen and there is not much of an atmosphere. Restaurant was however quite busy for a Tuesday evening. Food was pretty good. Starters were fine, chana and prawn purée. We had four main dishes, venison, duck specials along with king prawn Goan which were all... More

Firstly, everyone in our party of six were satisfied with our meals. We all enjoyed our dishes. The staff were all pleasant and attentive. One thing we did notice was our dishes were all milder than we thought they would be. I ordered a medium vegetable Bhuna but there was no kick to it at all. Nevertheless, we would all... More

Went to this restaurant based on adverts I'd seen that this was one of the best curry houses in the North of England. The place itself is clean but not spectacular. Felt really let down by the very bland food . My partner started with the Onion Bhajis ( you get 2) said the first was nicely spiced the second... More

Restaurant was completely empty when we entered. But it was early so we thought it might get busy later. The food was not authentic Indian cuisine but adapted for the British pallette. However it was enjoyable if a little overpriced. Wouldn't go back though. Maybe for take out.

We went last night as a family of five staying over in the area for the night. We had a nice meal but when we saw the bill we were gobsmacked at the end result. Items such as poppodoms were so expensive. The end result was that it ruined our meal. Obviously cannot say figures on here but it was... More
