Came here with local friends , and imhadmlow expectations, of it being goodmin rural Suffolk. Could not have been more wrong. Staff very friendly, food excellent, all of the dishes we ordered were superb, and the freshness of the onion baji was the clue. Home made, not Brought in. I would actually offer less choice if the owners to keep... More

It's a very cramped layout of tables and the waiter seemed fed up that we took a little while to pull the table out and get ourselves ensconced. The main course was ok, but we decided to have a dessert, ice cream! When it came it was as though it had been in the freezer for months, it seemed a... More

Great service from the guys here. Very prompt yet unobtrusive. The menu is quite varied offering a few more unusual dishes. The Nepalese cuisine was especially nice. I did feel the samosas let them down slightly, being a little greasy and rather bland. That said the rest of the food was very good. I would definately eat here again and... More

We have started getting our takeaway from the Memsaab as we are local residents. Order to pick up time is usually from 40 -50 minutes on a Friday or Saturday night so average I suppose. Prices are okay, could maybe get cheaper in local towns but add on the cost of fuel and it's about the same. Food is generally... More

Tasty, fresh Indian cuisine. Could be a bit more spicy and less creamy to our taste. But it has clear and clean flavors, and the staff is good.

We recently visited Memsaab after an inproptu drinks party, and we're all absolutely starving when we arrived. Our delightful host Cydnie seated us quickly and was very attentive all evening - not withstanding some of our special requests. The food was great - as it has been on previous visits. Can't recommend highly enough.

A traditional Indian menu, but there was lots to enjoy. We had a wide variety of dishes and they were all good. Service was good though a little slow. Would I go back again? Yes I would
