Description: An eloquent and dynamic Indian tandoori restaurant centralised within the Windsor Town Centre besides the Trinity Church and East Berkshire College. A local favourite, this restaurant has been serving both locals and tourists alike since 1987. With an intimate yet spacious atmosphere along with over 100 readily available seats the Viceroy remains the best Indian restaurant in Windsor. Our award winning food has won numerous awards including Best Indian Restaurant in South East England by both the Asian Catering Federation and the British Curry Awards. Furthermore, we have constantly been selected as one of the top 200 Indian Restaurants within the entire United Kingdom.

“They just need to connect a little more with the customers”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

It's probably the best Indian restaurant in Windsor, and are in the fairly unique position of having more than 1 star on their 'score on the door' food hygiene rating.
Everything's generally been ok here, but they just seem to have a problem connecting with the customers, maybe it's too big, too many shift changes, but Windsor's a small town and local's are their bread and butter business
Strange really

“Do not eat here !!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We are an asian family and know what good indian food tastes like. The whole family decided to go for an indian to celebrate a birthday. The worse mistake we made the food was poor quality and totally tasteless!!!! They cater for people who have never tasted real indian food. I would not feed my dog with this food. Please avoid this place!!!!!!

“Plenty more in Windsor - keep walking past this one”
Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Food expensive but not tasty. We went on Monday and NEVER again. Service v slow. Had Chicken Rogan - which basically was hunt the chicken!! The dish was filled with a gluggy bland sauce and tomatoes with if I was lucky four small pieces of chicken. Tomatoes were over flowing - a cheap way of padding out the dish rather than filling it with chicken. Portions were mean & expensive. Would advise to skip as many restaurants in Windsor....

“you don't win awards for being rubbish!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Oh my God! I can taste the food from my last visit to Viceroy as I'm writing this!!! AAAARGH!!! The food is certainly right up there with the best (hence the award!). The serviceis on a par with the food and the owner is always on hand and is a lovely chap. My other half LOVES this place and always asks for a "not on the menu" Phaal which is as hot as they come! The owner (and chef) passed by more than once to see this white, blond female comfortably eating this and were so impressed never charged us for her wholw meal! Expect the best service, the best food and a great night out-YOU'LL GET IT!

“did they really want our custom”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We were in bracknell and looked on trip advisor the viceroy had a good write uo so we decided to try it .from the moment we walked in there seemed to be a reluctance to serve us we had to ask to be seated. Then the wait started there were 2 couples and us a 3some.10 minutes passed we had to ask for poppadoms and water these were put on the table and you serve yourself water. we then ordered and waited 40 minutes passed and us and the table next to us are still waiting. they asked for more wine which was deposited on the table unopened help yourself. we asked where the food was we were told good food takes time now at 50 mins. informed them we had 10 minutes or we will have to leave. we left having waited with a 7 year old it was not busy . i think the main problem was no senior staff. and they said they were preparing for the saturday night. surely all customers are important.
