Best Indian ever! Friendly staff the owner even came out for a chat. Lots of Gluten free options and a healthy menu. Meat was nice too. Cheap prices. It looks dingy but the food is worth it! Yumm

If you like Indian food and its analogues then this little restaurant will be a treat for you.

We Had Onion BhaJia, Matar Paneer, Tandori Chicken, Nann, Roti, Biryani all were of excellent quality and reasonable portions.

The service was attentive and the owner had a 5 minute chat with us.

All in all we had a great meal with good service.

Authentic indian curry restaurant. Don't expect fancy decoration. Just good food and just one waitress, so be patience and enjoy the 'slow Indian food'

Really good authentic Indian food. When we visited we had the tandoori chicken, dahl makahni, butter chicken, tandoori mushrooms and naans. Everything was excellent. There are not a lot of Indian restaurants with genuine flavours like these guys. We were very impressed. Great service too.

I discovered this place by accident. I was simply looking for a BYO place close to the city. What I found was a delightful little place where the service and food deserve my highest praise. I have eaten Indian food in many countries in the world, and the food at Carlton Curry House does a magnificent job. The Goan Fish Curry is the best I've ever had, and so is the Lamb Buna. Owner Peggy makes you feel welcome, and her staff go to great length to please. The sauce of their curries is full of flavour, the meat and fish cooked to perfection. You will find food made and served with lots of love and passion. Perfect score from me!
