This is always a place we insist on visiting on our visits to UK. Once again, service was amazing and food delicious. All of our group, 4 adults and a 9 year old enjoyed our meals.

Have been here many times & have always had great food. The restaurant is clean & the staff are efficient- the restaurant also has a small private car park. It can get busy so definitely worth booking & there's always a good atmosphere.

Being local we use this curry house regularly although we have tried all the local alternatives. Cafe massala is consistently the best food and service. Keep up the good work!

I have been to this lovely place a few times now. In terms of our little rural area it beats everywhere hands down. The guys in the restaurant are lovely and the manager Tariq will always make you feel very special and welcome. The food is awesome tender lamb and juice chicken. I recommend the pathia. Yum.

Eight of us had pre-ordered an authentic Indian three course meal. Unfortunately the message had not got through, and the meal was classic Indian Restaurant fare, which meant it was good, but not as we had ordered. The service and ambience was up to standard, but we've found a couple of times now that when the owner is not there,... More

I just want to say a terrible food and filthy restaurant i ever had seen. Being an Asian I know exactly what Asian food should be and this was not it. The starters lacked flavour and taste. The description on the menu did not match what came on the table. The mains all tasted sweet and the same. I and... More
