“Good food good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Porth is full of fish and chip shops, so it is pleasing to see an Indian restaurant in the main street. The owner was very friendly and chatted to us about the menu, which was quite full and reasonably priced. The four of us selected a variety of main dishes and all were of a high standard. Each portion size was excellent and we struggled to finish them. I was not expecting such a good meal and I recommend Cafe India thoroughly.

“Lovely food and excellent value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Really tasty food, with large portions and great value for money. Far better than many of the indian restaurants in Cardiff, as easy to park and you get so much more for your money.

In one of the main shopping streets in Porth, the interior decor could do with a lick of pain and bit or refurbishment, but who cares when the food is so nice?!! The owner is a real character and is so interested in making sure your food is what you want, is very knowledgeable and ready to offer recommendations.

“Rhondda's finest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

This place is a jewel in the Rhondda. The place is clean and welcoming. You're greeted as an old friend whether you've been there before or not. Ash who runs the place is interested to ensure you have a good time and will explain anything on the extensive menu and even suggest things you might not have considered.

Last time my wife and I had Chicken Chaat as a starter and it was juicy, full of flavour and surrounded by a fresh crisp lettuce salad. For mains my wife had Chicken Methi and I tried Chicken Shatkora which I'd previously heard about but never found in restaurants before. Both meals were piping got and so full of flavour. The naan was fluffy with a slight sweetness and the bindi bhaji was excellent.

This place has many who come here regularly several times a month and that's a good recommendation in itself. The banter between the regulars and Ash is entertainment anyway and you'll soon get dragged in! Rhondda hospitality and friendliness at its best - go there and give it a go!

“Fantastic food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We were a group of friends sharing chicken korma, chicken tikka massala, chicken curry, chips, pilau rice, sag aloo, onion bhajis, poppadoms and a selection of chutneys. We dined in and had a great time, food was amazing and portions very generous. Having tried most indian restaurants in RCT, this is definitely my favorite.
