I've been going to this restaurant/take away for years and the food has always been of very good quality. However, the last two occasions have been very disappointing. The onion bhajis were dry but the lamb tikka/chicken passanda were nice. The chicken tikka massalla was very red in colour (it was obvious some kind of food colouring had been added),... More

This was the most disappointing Indian takeaway we have ever had. The prawn bhuna we ordered was swimming in oil and completely inedible. The bombay aloo was a tiny portion and lacked any real flavour although our chicken tikka was alright. The popadoms were all soft and really oily. The only part of the meal that I actually ate was...

I have eaten at the Dalchini many times over the years and have enjoyed the food there. On this occasion we had a takeaway but the food was as good as ever. They do some good deals at the Dalchini and we had £5 off our takeaway this time. I thought there Prawn Dhansak was spot on as well as... More

I order takeaway from here every time I want a curry and I have never been disappointed! I've used them for about five years now and their five course £9.95 deal is an absolute steal! Personally I would recommend the tikka masala or the maharajah masala (I think that's right!)

First proper reasonably priced throat burning curry I've had in a while. Great place for a take away.

I popped in here enticed by the 5 course offer in the window. I was on the way to the Globe and had time to kill. I ordered tandoori mixed starter, very fresh and hot. Butter Chicken, very enjoyable and calorific, mushroom bhajee and Peshwari naan. I went just gone 5pm so only person there and it was a little... More

Me and my flat mate decided to treat ourselves to a takeaway this evening. We really don't do this often so were really looking forward to a nice curry. We went for a £9.95 deal each, which seemed like good value as it included any starter, main, side and rice off the menu. Delivery was good, however the food itself... More

POSITIVE: very friendly and very polite service - lovely, in fact. NEGATIVE: I was charged £11.10 when I went to collect a takeaway, and after paying with £11.50, the server went to collect meal without giving me my change. Feeling awkward, I didn't ask for my 40p, which is odd, as I wouldn't let that one go in a shop.... More

Called in to Dalchini's after a gig at The Globe just around the corner. I must admit that I had very low expectations. Service was friendly. Cobra was on draught. The menu was varied enough and the food was tasty. It didn't rock my world (the likes of Purple Poppadom, Mint and Mustard, even Mowgli's have nothing to worry about)... More
