Another wonderful family meal this evening.

Empire offers consistent high quality in every respect: menu choice, wonderful food to satisfy a wide range of tastes, outstanding welcome and service, a lovely ambience and friendly, professional care from the whole team.

We've chosen Empire for most family meals for several years, some travelling many miles for the pleasure. Suited as much for an intimate, special meal for two as a large family gathering. A hidden gem for sure.

We went here on a busy six nations Saturday night. Food amazing, fresh and full of flavour. Bill very reasonable. Service good seeing as they were so busy. Would recommend.

Was recommended empire by a friend, ordered a takeaway. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The service was very prompt and efficient. The menu had a range of dishes to choose from which is rare. The price was cheap considering what you get, and all of the dishes were prepared beautifully - bursting full of flavour. I would highly recommend this place. It was definitely the best indian i’ve ever had and i will be returning soon.

Thank you.

Decided on a takeaway after a friend recommended.
Food totally average
An unacceptable 45 mins wait (after being told 25)
Nice carrier bag though
No rush to return

I treated my boyfriend to a birthday meal in The Empire restaurant last night, we have been dining there for years now and last night was just another reminder of why it is by far our favourite Indian. The service is always spot on with the friendly efficient waiters and the food absolutely delicious. We would highly recommend a visit.
