“Sadly disappointed.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

We have been tempted to try this Indian for a while and finally gave it a go. The service was very good and couldn't be faulted. Unfortunately the food did not live up to the attractive menu. Both dishes we had were lacking in flavour although the chicken was cooked well. The bread and bhaji were good. Sadly there are better in Newbury so we won't be back.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

There were 30 of us for a night out, Lucky's had arranged for us to be upstairs with our group. The meal started with poppadums, and then moved onto a selection of starters for the group. Then a selection of currys, rice and naan breads appeared on the table - as I can only eat Chicken Korma, the kitchen very kindly added that onto our prebooked night for me.
The food was delicious, the service was good, and was a lovely night.

“Really good freshly made curries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Very good food, tastes like it's made with fresh ingredients - no brightly coloured sauces in sight. Really light naans. Only downside was the atmosphere; our group of 4 was seated upstairs where there was one other table of about 8 and another table with a quiet couple - felt a bit out of the way and resulted in a slightly odd atmosphere. Would request a table downstairs in future I think.

“Under-appreciated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Lucky's was, for a time, the busiest place in Newbury, and for good reason. They provide good authentic dishes with great service. Since the opening of two other restaurants nearby it seems this place is being overlooked which is a real shame.

If you want a nice meal in a nice setting at a sane price then Lucky's should be near the top of your list of places to visit. The food is tasty and authentic and they are good at catering to specific dietary requirements if you speak to your waiter.

“Midweek visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Delicious food, much better atmosphere now the restaurant is smaller it now feels like a tapas bar type atmosphere. Service was good and food arrived quick albeit it was a quiet midweek night. Would recommend, I've been to pretty much all the Indian restaurants Newbury and this is the nicest food
