Really nice curry full of flavour and depth. We ha the family naan which was massive wasn't doughy or flat, couldn't fault it and is decent value for money,

Four of us walked in at 10:20pm for a meal (the restaurant is open until 11:30 according to their website) . We were told it was takeaway only. We left. I won't be going back. Another local restaurant ended up getting the £70 they would have had instead. Shockingly bad customer service. Avoid.

We have been using the Vakas for over 20 years as we live very close and can walk - however since the Restaurant changed hands last year things have just gone downhill. All the old staff - who were excellent - have gone - the new staff are lacking and that is all I will say. However, and most importantly... More

Popped in here after meeting a friend. Service very friendly and efficient and all of the food was good quality and very tasty. I had poppadoms and dips which were very good followed by a very nice dansak, lemon rice and a excellent peshwari nan. The only downside for me is that the place is not licenced so only serve...

What a delicious, well cooked and presented meal. Choose from traditional English turkey dinner, or a choice of 4 Indian dishes, or mix & match!! The atmosphere was fab and staff take great care to ensure every customer was happy. Unbeatable quality at an unbeatable price. This is our second year of having Christmas lunch at Vakas. Can't wait for... More
