Description: The Viceroy Restaurant opened its doors in July 1987. During that period we have received honours from "Tandoori Good Food Guide", "The Good Curry Guide" and "Curry Club". Nonetheless, we believe our hospitality and service shouldn't become complacent because of our award winning recognition. Providing a quality dining experience is paramount in any eatery and with that in mind we've decided to give our menus, bar and restaurant a brand new look and feel. You will now find The Viceroy providing an emphasis on refined yet creative Indian cuisine complimenting with our new and improved selection of fine wine for assorted tastes. The A La Carte Menu incorporates both traditional classic favourites and original new dishes that apply Eastern flavours with a Western twist. What's more the restaurant itself has taken on a new and luxurious interior lending itself to the rich vibrancy of East meets West by incoporating a clean and sophisticated look, with rich violets, warm golden yellows and elements of black and white. The main restaurant seats up to 80 guests and is available for private entertaining by appointment whilst the bar can comfortably entertain 10 guests.

“Unimpressed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Visited with friends but wish we hadn't bothered. All the curries tasted pretty similar and didn't seem to have any fresh tasting ingredients which I think can make a good curry. The wine we choose was awful and the waiter seemed to throw the food down on the table at us at one point. Maybe it was a bad day, the only redeeming feature was the rice which was cooked beautifully. This, however, was not enough to make up for the other areas which are in need of vast improvement.
We will not be going back.

“Excellent food, excellent service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

I have eaten at the Viceroy for many years now and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent and good value. The staff offer excellent service and are attentive without being overbearing- they are some of the friendliest staff I've encounter at any restaurant. The atmosphere in the restaurant is lovely and the takeaways are also brilliant! Would definitely recommend.

“Great food and restaurant lovely.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Decided to get a take away rather than eat in and was not disappointed. Mixed vegetarian starter and sheek kabab to start, both great, followed by tandoori fish tikka for me and Korma for hubby..both were excellent and there was definitely plenty of it. Restaurant looked lovely when I picked up the food, and the staff were really friendly. Good value for what we had as well. Will definitely go back, and will eat in soon.
