Description: If practise makes perfect, then the curries at Curry Mahal deserve an A+. Located on the Station Road in Sidcup, Curry Mahal restaurant has been serving up superb Indian cuisine since 1968, and the recently refurbished dining room is always popular with regulars and local curry connoisseurs. With its contemporary d��cor, stylish artworks and buzzy atmosphere, Curry Mahal is family-friendly and has a menu to please even the fussiest food lovers. We highly recommend the Mysore Chilli Chicken ��� lightly buttered chicken cubes tossed with green chillies and yoghurt; the Tamarind Duck served with fresh spinach leaves; and the Birballi Lamb Chops marinated with fresh herbs and barbecued in the tandoori oven with pilau rice.

Tonight we ordered a take away and this was the best curry we have ever tasted and we have had a lot of curries. Great from ordering to delivery! Highly recommend.

The discovery of a great Indian restaurant is an amazing thing, and leads of years of repeat custom, laughs, memorable occasions and joy. That is definitely the case here; whether a meal with family, friends, your partner, or using the speedy takeaway service, the food, staff and atmosphere is certainly the best in the area.

With an extensive, and interesting, menu, Curry Mahal caters for everyone, whether you prefer a fiery Vindaloo or a smooth Korma. Even if your favourite dish is not on the menu, chances are, they'll make it for you anyway.

Definitely worth trying:

Tamarind Duck
Haloumi Wrap
Prawn Puree

Lamb Dansak
Chicken Korai
Chef's Special

As a very frequent user of Curry Mahal in Sidcup for many years now, I was shocked to see a couple of negative comments about this restaurant. I have never had a bad meal, let alone a bad dish in this fab eatery. This really is a gem of an Indian, demonstrated by the fact that turning up without booking often means a wait for a table - even if you have to wait, it's worth it!

Last visited December 19th - a table of 9 for my mum's birthday. Before then, December 6th - a table of 7 to celebrate my brother's engagement. On both occasions we were looked after impeccably, and gifted bottles of champagne (to add to the many already on the tables!) to celebrate the festivities.

After your first visit, you'll know the search for 'your Indian' is over.

Booked last minute for Saturday night and so glad we did.
There is quite a choice of Indian restaurants in the area and this one has to rate as one of the best!! The restaurant is of moderate size seating about 50 persons but it was full with a great buzz.
The service was superb; attentive and friendly.
We had the Chicken Garlic Chilli Fry - Chicken Nantara and Chicken Korma.
All three dishes arrived hot and tasty. I would highly recommend the Chilli Fry!!
The Keema Nan and Parata were also cooked beautifully.
We really enjoyed this meal and all agreed it was one of the best we have had recently.
Well done Curry Mahal.

This is the best Indian restaurant in Sidcup and surrounding areas. I always have something different from the menu, and I am never dissapointed. Lovely food, attentive staff and good atmosphere.
