“Great food and friendly staff”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Meal at Cafe India was delicious. Shared a platter for starter and it was great. Generous portions that neither myself or hubby could finish. Staff were very attentive and friendly. We just walked in without booking midweek and it was not busy but to be fair whole Merchant city was quiet. Had been at Jamie's Italian the previous night and wished we had come to Cafe India instead as it was much better! Well worth a visit

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

met up with 8 members of family from south of the border last week at Cafe India who are curry conisseurs! and they were not disappointed. The service and food was first rate and the staff were amazing. Friendly but not intrusive. I know that recently it is under new management so well done to them! keep up the good work and cant wait to return and wish them success for the future.

“Great Service, Delicious Food”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Myself and two friends arrivered here at about 945pm on Friday night for some food. Very attentive staff showed us to our table and quickly took our drink orders. We got popadoms and chutney's and onions etc along with our drinks we finished them quickly and more. For mains we ordered Chicken dishes, a madras, chatni and massala, all three dishes were excellent, the madras was perfect, we like spice and this was hot but not the sort of hot where you cant really taste anything except the heat, this was delicious. The Chatni has just enough spice too and the massala was perfect. We had chapati's and nan bread too and were well impressed with the freshness of it all.

The restaurant was full, even at that time of night, there were large tables of 8 and six but we never had to wait, the service seemed to be flowing just right for everyone.

This is now on my list of places that I would be happy to eat at again, and we shall return.

“Good value”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Our friends had got an online deal for the four of us for lunch, We all ordered the chicken pakora for starters and it was delicious and cooked to perfection.
I decided on a Lamb Korma which was delicious. the portions of rice and the size of the Naan Breads was terrific.
The staff were friendly and attentive. We will all be back soon.
