We have ordered take away food from Star Karahi more than 20 times and each time the food has been outstanding. We have got to know the guys behind the counter who are always friendly. You will not be able to find better spicy food in the UK. All the vegetarian dishes are delicious.

Amazing food, great taste and good hygiene. You cannot go wrong with thier two signature dishes Dal Makhani and Karahi Paneer. However there is not a good seating area in the Reading branch. Slough is still fine.

Phoned my order and was told it would be ready in 10 minutes. Picked up food and it was lovely. Downside can be parking as its at the end of a closed road.

Third trip and every time has been perfect. The lamb is a favourite. Also the kebab rolls are not to be missed and a bargain for £3 for a large. Staff are also polite and attentive.

I had recently bought Nihari (traditional breakfast dish) over the weekend, and the food was so bad that the entire family was feeling sick for three days. They have a good score for "score on the door" for cleanliness, but i guess that is about it. I would suggest to avoid this.
