We came here to dine in ans celebrate a birthday. The starters were yummy especially the sheekh kebab. We also had the mix and wings , chilli tofu & stuffed mushrooms. The food was well prepared and loved the spices. We also had some good...cocktails made by Mr D. The mains were also good portions and tasty. We had panner tikka masala and dhal makhni with jeera rice. The fried mushrooms rice is a must to have as it was amazing when having with masala curry. The service was good. Overall great experience and would definitely recommend dine in.More

We’ve just eaten our take away from this restaurant and sadly we were extremely disappointed. The food was salty, my naan bread was dry, and the popadom was broken into tiny pieces. I definitely do not recommend this restaurant.

Since Indian Orchid moved to a new location a few years ago they are within walking distance of our home. This year, during the pandemic, we have dined there a few times, and also had several meal deliveries during lockdown. A comment on dining in:...during the August 'Eat Out' promotion the restaurant was packed. They did observe the sanitizing, hand washing etc rules, but I thought the tables were as close together as before the pandemic, so we preferred take away meals after that. The menu is wide ranging with all the usual Indian favourites, but you also find some more unusual dishes. Aloo Tokri Chaat and crispy bhindi are some examples from the starter menu, as is the vegetable Garhwali masala main dish. Some of their dhals are also excellent, especially tadka dhal and the Hyderabadi dhal. We became vegetarian a couple of years ago, so cannot comment on the non veg food. Flavours vary according to the dish, as everything is cooked fresh to order. The odd dish is a little bit oily for our liking, but that is quite are. Three plates plus nan are usually more than enough for two of us, and we have to take a doggy bag home. If we order four dishes for home delivery we can actually have two dinners, so the price works out to be fairly moderate, usually between GBP25 and GBP40 if no alcohol is involved. Service is always pleasant and obliging. A good place to have in the local area!More

Poor for takeaway. May have gone downhill.. Perhaps due to Covid. We ordered a takeway, Food was ready surprisingly quickly. Should have been suspicious. Onion bhajis were dark brown/black almost all the way through, not crispy, and dry. Not fresh. Must have been reheated, maybe...more than once. Lachha Paratha was leathery, probably reheated too. Other food flavours were not special at all. We won't go backMore

Lovely ambiance, attentive staff . Good selection of vegetarian starters and mains. We had chili crisp and peanut mix, and daal bhajia which i would recommend. We also ordered Egg burjee and matar panner for mains which was delicious and with mushroom fried rice. The...portion was quite decent and very filling. The restaurant was very clean and social distancing observed with PPE. Definitely visit again to try other items on menu. Highly recommended.More

My family and I have been coming to this wonderful restaurant since the first day it opened; I was so excited by this then and i still remain excited each time I visit this restrauant! The food, service, the atmosphere are 100% every time. The...Staff and the Owner always make us feel very welcome and they always have time for a chat. And we have never been rushed in finishing our food - this is their policy and we love that very much as it makes for a relaxing evening. A fantastic restaraunt for the whole family! Thank you very much. Sunil PMore

Such a shame about this place as the food was good, but service was such a let down. I appreciate that the eat out scheme probably made the restaurant busy but we were so rushed. The waiter brought our mains and then told us they...needed the table soon. We had to order our mains with our starter just because they were in a rush. It was clear they weren’t bothered about us and more interested in the turnaround. I also didn’t feel that safe with the covid measures as the tables were quite close to each other and not much social distancing going on. I sadly won’t be returning.More

Visited for the first time as part of the eat out scheme and am so pleased to discover such a fabulous restaurant on my doorstep. We tried chilli chicken and poori starters as well as a biryani and paneer main course, all were spiced perfectly...and cooked to perfection. Service was friendly and attentive without feeling rushed and we will be making this our go to Indian restaurant.More
