Another really good curry at the Mohabir. We live locally and this is always our first port of call for an Indian meal. The service is a bit rushed and the dessert menu is typically uninspiring generic frozen rubbish but if it's uniquely flavoured great quality Indian food you're after, you can't go far wrong here.

Welcoming, cheerful staff with a dry sense of humour, and a rather random wine list, but the Kingfisher was great and the glory of this place is the food, fresh and well spiced. Bhindi in particular was beautifully dry, not swimming in oil, and every dish was distinct, not covered in identical sauces as you sometimes get. One of my... More

A birthday treat with family, this was a cracking meal for four. Decor was ok, but that's not what floats my boat anyhow. Service was grand, friendly and efficient without being over exuberant. Food was very tasty, all four of us had different starters, mains and desserts (well, those of us with space for desserts) and everything went down an... More

I compare every curry I have to this place, you just can't beat it. The quality of the meat is always first class. As a lamb curry lover I have experienced some very tough stuff at other places, but the Mohabir is always great. Their Lamb tikka bhuna is a dish everyone should try. The staff are really friendly and... More

Amazing food, would deffo love to have food again. However the only downfall would be the staff as they were rude, which made the experience a bit unpleasant, would like to return to see if any changes are made due to the lovely food.

Last Friday I decided to buy Indian food in a local restaurant. As I live 0.3 miles from this restaurant, I decided to give it a go. Really good decision as the food was amazing and spicy. I ordered a Lamb Vindaloo which was really hot, Pilau rice, Paratha bread and 3 poppadom alongside 2 different sauces for £13. I... More
