I've been a regular at the Mirabai for several years and cannot recommend it highly enough. The food is freshly and carefully prepared. The menu contains several interesting dishes that you won't find elsewhere and the staff are always welcoming and friendly. I haven't found a better Indian restaurant in the city. Highly recommended!

Had a lovely dinner there this evening. Lots of choice on the menu, took me a while to choose which dish to have! Ended up having Bengali Chicken which was delicious but was so stuffed I couldn't finish it. The service was brilliant and they were attentive throughout the meal.

This is usually a very good and reliable curry house. As regular customers we were very disappointed with our most recent visit. The food was a very long time in coming, although the place wasn't full, and when it arrived it was lukewarm at best. When this was brought to the staff's attention they offered to take it all back... More

We went there again tonight and our high expectations were as usual totally fulfilled: tasty food, friendly service and fantastic value for money (more than we could eat for three people, plus two pints of beer) for under £50. Highly recommended.

Excellent varied menu with some real traditional Indian dishes alongside the more western and new creations. All good was tender and cooked to perfection. (I had garlic prawns to start and the a mixed meat grill).
