This is one of our local Indian restaurants and is by far a favourite. We have been many times having takeaway, dining in as a couple or with friends. The staff are friendly, service attentive but not to the point of annoyance, food is delicious. We have tried many dishes but do have some favourites the beef vindaloo and the lamb saagwala. We never leave hungry or unhappy which is what you want from a dining experience. Can get very busy so book if you can. Offers dining inside and outside. Recommend inside during cooler weather. Plenty of parking. BYO. Offer some great deals if dining early in the week.

Had an amazing meal here last week. Incredible service and beautiful food. The chicken madras had a lovely delicate coconut flavour. If you like your curry quite hot order it hot. Not as much bite as I'd hoped for and I'm quite a wimp with hot food! The restaurantis situated in a small shopping complex but had a lovely atmosphere and the service was top notch! Lovely evening and will certainly return.

My wife and I tried Indian Empire and though we loved the evening, the food was lacking that authentic Indian flavors. The staff was absolutely lovely, their naan breads are amazing, yet the main meal lacked the complex level of flavors associated with Indian cuisine. In regards to spice, the Indian hot could only be compared to eating lava. I could hear my colon crying with each bite! The medium spice was no where nearly as hot, but still lacked the flavors. The food is not offensive in any way shape or form, I would recommend for a quick takeaway.
