We've had a take away and loved their food so decided to meet friends there last night. Firstly despite booking online for 7.30 and receiving conformation, they said we hadn't made a booking. Waited half and hour and were seated. Eventually got drinks, eventually got poppadoms for starters, after no communication had to ask to order the main meal and... More

Travelled 20 miles to this restaurant for a Sunday buffet. Arrived at 3pm. My wife and I were told sorry its one minute past three and we cannot serve you. What sort of outfit is this. Open from 12 to three on a Sunday. 40 mile round trip for nothing. Stick your food where the sun don't shine. Will eat... More

We normally go somewhere else for our curry night but having been here before I persuaded the group to come here! Can't get enough of the fried onion rice and mixed grill masala and everyone else in the group really enjoyed their curries too! We'll definitely be coming back again for our curry nights!

Totally disappointed at the quality,quantity and general presentation of the main course at this establishment.The meal I ordered was presented in a shallow porcelain tureen and the Lamb within was poor quality and left on my plate.The Pilau rice dish contained enough rice to feed a small child.No hot plates required here as there is not sufficient food served here...

Simply the best Indian meal we have had in a long long time.the silsila cafe marsala and lamb tika karai allowed different flavours within to be appreciated and the heat level was such that you could still taste the food and fresh ingredients. The kemma naan had real kemma in it, not just a reddish paste representative of the real... More

Visited on a Sunday lunch time without booking, there were plenty of tables as we were early, the table layout was excellent, all white table cloths and proper napkins. The buffet selection was the best I have ever seen and I have visited quite a few over the years, there was a lamb dish and even a prawn dish. Choice... More

We go to Cafe Marsala frequently, we love the atmosphere, the food, the friendly staff, the fact that the owner knows our name (like Cheers!) We also get takeaway, which always arrives on time, hot and delicious. Perfect in all respects.

Went here tonight. Party of 4. Tasty food and good quick service. Will call again. I had ordered the biryani and told them I didn't need the curry sauce that came with it so they said they wouldn't charge us for the onion bhajis we had ordered which was nice service.
