“Something a bit different”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Booked and went along for a family meal (6 adults and two young children) not really knowing what to expect but what a rewarding experience. Some of the party thought that they did not like spicy food and were pleasantly surprised to find that they fully enjoyed their meal.The staff could not do enough to accommodate us with the children.There is no license so we bought along our wine (from the Spar Store next door). Soft drinks are available. The 3 course meal at a fixed price of £15 was available or just take whatever courses individually that you want. The Mango ice cream to finish with was a great choice. Only open on Thurs. Fri. Sat. from 18.30. Only about 8 tables so better to book.[ 015398 21807]

“Fantastic”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I went to Starley's on a Thursday night with my brother. We were not disappointed and had one of the best Indian meals either of us have ever eaten. My brother who has visited India even went as far as to say that this was *the* best Indian meal he's ever eaten. I particularly recommend the bread based side dishes, the roti was very good and the naan out of this world. The food was exquisitely flavoured and the staff were friendly and attentive. Honestly, I can't recommend this place highly enough.

“A Great Indian Experience!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We were staying in the village of Staveley when we cam across this restaurant. It certainly stood out from other Indian Restaurants, in that the menu was very small, four or five starters and five mains with some sundries! Its only open on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday so you have to get in quick. We decided to try it as a takeaway on the Thursday evening. We did call in earlier on to ask if we needed to pre order our food as there was a few of us, but we were told no need, just ring and order later!
We rang at 8pm to order only to be told the beef curry was sold out! They did manage to find us one portion in the end though. The curries are very tasty and different from others. The beef was very tender but a little salty, the children is really tasty and quite hot which was great.
To reserve you can leave a message on their phone service I believe. Also you can take your own alcohol which is very cost efficient and there is a spar next door! Its only small inside and sparsely furnished but I thought that added to its appeal.
I would certainly suggest a visit but ring and book in to avoid disappointment!

“Another Fabulous Meal”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Four of us visited on a Thursday night and the place was packed which made for a nice atmosphere.

There were new dishes since we last visited plus some of the same favourites. Three of us had the channa chat chickpea starter which was yummy and one of us had the stuffed paratha all of which got polished off in nano seconds. I had spicy pork koftas which were delicious in a lovely spicy sauce, my husband had garlic chilli chicken which he really enjoyed plus we all shared rice and naan breads and neither of us managed to finish all of ours!

It's such a reasonably priced night out, with fabulous food, we will be back again soon!

“Amazing food- proper, traditional curry!”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

We ordered a takeaway which meant we got 20% off, so was extremely reasonable. We loved the all the starters we tried- especially the chana chat!
The currys were wonderful, being a vegetarian i was more than happy with the options and would definately visit again.
The staff were really helpful and the restaurant looks lovely. Really nice, intimate atmosphere.
Definately recommend it to anyone in the area!
