Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a wonderful meal here and the service was Exceptional.....It was a very cold evening and I was even offered a Brandy on the house to warm me up.....The meal was the best Indian meal we've ever had and the Rose I was given as we left was a Great surprise and Beautiful....It was not expensive.....and the Chef even came out to Greet us and ask if everything was OK....I would hightly recommend a visit to this restaurant and will definately be going there again...hopefully in the very near future.....

“Exceptional”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

This Bangladeshi restaurant is amazing. Do Not go here though if you expect a quick 'Indian'. The food is exceptional and this takes time to prepare. The atmosphere is lovely; you can relax on big soft leather sofas at the bginning of your evening and the end. The Staff are very attentive and the owner, Mr Miah, always does a round of the restaurant to ensure you are enjoying your evening. Take time to enjoy the whole experience of Qarma.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I really like Qarma, never had a bad meal here.

The food is lovely, it's more about the flavours than the heat. There is so much choice, including a range of healthy options, vegetarian options and Qarma specials. If you're struggling to choose, the thali's a good option as you get little bits of everything.

Most dishes come with rice so you know the price of your curry is an "all inclusive" price, the staff are very accomodating too so if you don't like the rice that comes with your dish, they will try to cater to your requests.

The owner/head chef always comes out to chat to people, the restuarant is clean and then there's all the little touches like ladies are given a rose and you often get offered a night cap on the house.

“AMAZING”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We went tho the peak district for a week break and read about this restaurant so thought we would give it a try.
I wished we lived nearer. Everything about this place was excellent. A true family run Indian restaurant with amazing food and fantastic customer service. We went there twice. Once on a quiet Monday night and the chef (who is the father and part owner) came out to meet us and make sure everything was ok. I have never had that before. And then we went again on the friday night (you definately need to book) when it was really busy but the front of house and the food was no different between the 2 nights. Both were top quality.
If you are in the area you have to go

“Fresh mouth watering quality food!!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

Iv dined in and had takeaways delivered to home. Each dish has been freshly prepared and flavoursome. Quality and value for money is paramount here. Childs portions available on curry favourites. Ample for my boys. Waiters are delightful. Work hard when busy and create a great atmosphere. Situated in an old mill the carpark is tired but once inside its authentic and very contempory in design. I got a rose on leaving. A great touch!
