“Best indian in area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Have eaten at this place almost weekly for the last year and yet to be disappointed with the food. By far the best curry house in dronfield - and there are a lot! Also the best naan breads I have eaten and the jumbo naans are a great attraction. Garlic/garlic& chilli are particularly great. As for main courses, there is a great selection including some wonderful south Indian dishes which I am yet to see anywhere else. The garlic chilli chicken is amazing and like no other "garlic chicken" you will find on another menu. Food is well priced for what is a reasonably affluent area. Staff are great, knowledgeable and clearly wanting to impress. Cannot recommend this place highly enough for people wanting a proper curry in a friendly environment. Will continue to make my weekly visits!

“Food was awful didn't like the service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

when i came i had to wait about 10 minutes just for a drink, the man behind the bar didn't seem happy either. The waitress with the black hair had a fake smile and not very good manners. When the food finally arrived it was fairly cold like it had been sat outside for the last 10 minutes. i liked the young male waiter he seemed to be very kind and had good manners, i don't think i will be coming back to this "restaurant" i think i will just stick with Ayesha's.

“Refreshing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Well just had a terrific meal here with an authentic Indian ambience. From the service which was polite, friendly yet professional to the excellent quality of food which was well presented, very tasty and no mush in sight, good chunks of meat in sauces that clearly tasted of what the dish was supposed to. Very refreshing indeed. Well worth a visit.

“Indian Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We went for a per Christmas meal with friends (7 in our party) we had per booked our table,on arrival we were warmly greeted in the bar area and given plenty of time to sort our drinks ,before being courteslouy shown to our table. The service was instant and friendly, poppadoms & pickles being served straight away.There is a large choice for mains, which again were served efficiently and with a friendly attention to detail.I can safely say for both my wife and myself that it was the nicest Indian food we have eaten. We live on the Dronfield side of Sheffield and have several Indian restaurants close by but we can say in future we will travel those few extra miles to eat here again.
