Right near picadilly gardens. Quality food but the service is not that great. Owner is not friendly at all!

A great little place just off the main square, tucked down a lane. Small, clean and friendly with seating for a few but not many. The fresh baked naan with my dish was superb and our curries were both hot and tasty. Excellent value for...More

The caf may not look like much but the food is delicious. Such good value and a good range of veggie options too. I’ll be going back again and again.

Went here by chance, curry was heated up in back along with rice that had. Some food items not available. It seems that most people go for the 3 curries and rice for £5 deal. If ever here again would get this. Food is homely...More

Visited Cafe Marharba recently after hearing about the 3 curries and rice deal for £5. Once ordered we sat down and could see our food being cooked fresh. I ordered the chicken jalfrezi, vegetable and spinach. I have to admit I received far more veg...More
