“Curry in a hurry!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

One of the few places that I have commented on the is right on my door step! Set in the location of the Crooked Billet, Bouchra is the last of a dying breed of Curry Houses that you would expect to find on the set of Life on Mars. It's not the sort of place that you would take a first date, but the food is great and with a pub next door it's fairly lively. Great for take away and eat in.

“Not appealing at all”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Did not like the setting, restaurant is very distastefully done, paper serviettes for example. Food was not very nice either, very disappointing. The restaurant is actually part of a pub and the bar area was like a nursery with several children playing around the pool table even at 9pm on a Saturday night.

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Whilst staying in the Holiday Inn in Maidenhead I decided to not to eat in the hotel and spend £5 for a pint of lager and £12 of a sandwich so I took a walk to Bouchra which is located in the Crooked Billet pub. It is about a 15 minute walk from the Holiday Inn or £4 in a taxi.

The food was excellent as was the service, very friendly. I had a chicken Jalfrezi it was perfectly spiced and not too hot. The nan bread was fresh and probably cooked in their kitchen.
I your certainly return.

“Good Curry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We were visiting family on a weekend away in Cookham, looking for somewhere to eat an early family meal and this suited ours needs. The restaurant is in a slightly odd location, out of town, but once inside we were on familiar territory. The staff were friendly and patient with our extended group. We ate off the reasonably priced set menu and were overall pleased with our choices. Some of the starters were huge (onion bhaji - think 2 giant tennis balls) and we had plenty of food left over which we took home with us afterwards. Only complaint - the dishes were all a bit spicier than expected. We like spice but some of them were far hotter than you would get elsewhere! Desserts were the usual ice creams and sadly the ice cream penguin was out of stock!

“Excellent food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Whilst staying in maidenhead a colleague took a few of us out to this india which is a bit of a way out of maidenhead center but it was well worth the trip.

The onion bhajee's were worth the trip alone. The rest of the food including the vegetarian options were excellent and could'nt recommend it highly enough.
