Had our first takeaway from here last night. Excellent actually, wasn’t expecting it to be that good. It was a Sat night and was packed, and the food was much better quality than I’d expected for a rural takeaway. We had Tandoori mix starter, lamb shank slowly cooked special and lamb gosht. I’ll definitely go again.

Ordered a delivery for my dad’s birthday. We are regular onsite diners too. The food here is great. If you like spicy the madras is lovely. Also like the chilli paneer starter. My dad loves the Chana Bhuna & mum & I always share a Saag side or Saag Aloo. Tarka Dhal is really good too. Can’t fault it! Will continue to be a regular when I am in Leominster!

I love my curries and was taught how to make them at a very early age, by ladies from many countries (Filipino, Indian, Thai etc) whatever country my dad was working in/ peoples he was working with at the time
I still make decent food myself, but it's nice now and again just to relax and leave someone else cook!

This is the one we always use in Leominster.
One of the curry restaurants in Leominster is IMHO awful, the others are good but not consistently good over their whole menu.

This is a very good standard. I am slowly working my way through their entire specials menu, as well as eating the usual suspects (Biryani, Chilli Tikka, Masala, Bhuna,Rezala, Thal etc ) basically eating curries to match what I want and the mood I'm in
Only curries I never eat are the Korma and Madras- both very bland no matter who's cooking IMHO.

Best recommendation I can give is that it is our favourite curry house in Leominster.

Glad to hear your happy with your trips, we’ll have to expand the specials menu eventually if you make it all the way through :)

Only place to go - cannot fault the place - booked Friday night for 20.30 - excellent reception, excellent food, excellent staff - so went the next night also - simply cannot fault the place - clean, great food and a very varied menu. Enjoyed it so much wnet back on Saturday which was more hectic than Friday - however, be aware - the portions are great - so perhaps go easy on the pops and pickles - we have ate in a lot of Indian restaurants - but this is one of the best - folks - up and move and go somewhere to expand - you will be more than successful - oh and thanks for the Irish coffees on the second night on the house - and the bullet chillies! My wife and I will recommend anyone to come to your place. I reckon we will be seeing you before the year is out

Visited for my 2nd time last night and it was as good as the 1st. Food was excellent along with the service. Even my daughter and nephew were blown away with the food. Really wished it was 35 mile away from where we live as would visit a lot more but well worth the trip for the welcome and flavour. Many thanks for a great night and will see you again very soon . People of Leominster are really lucky to have such a great Indian restaurant on their doorstep. 10/10
