It was the first time I've tried this restaurant and wasn't disappointed. The food was a bit on the spicy side - but well presented and the staff were very attentive but not in your face. Wouldn't mind going back there sometime soon and trying something else - as having a separate vegetarian menu is quite good! Recommended! Just be... More

Went together with a group of friends to have dinner. The service was alright but with some exceptions the food is more or less Indian street food. Good enough, but not at the prices they are asking.

Very disappointing meal at this "institution". Obviously trying to be different from the curry house norm by the look of it. but when it comes down to it the food has to be right! Cutting corners is clear as curry sauces taste the same and meat/fish cooked separately. Need a few drinks for this to be acceptable! Are the other... More

Ownership may have changed over the years, but having promised myself a visit, I actually got round to it on the second day of 2016. Superb menu, and what we chose was equally good. Nicely presented, customers seem to be welcome here, indeed with open arms, a taste card,and Saturday evening! So that is two Indian Restaurants in South Croydon... More

Excellent food and service. Not the cheapest, but good value. The tikka masala is particularly good, but avoid the chicken chetinad.

We popped into this restaurant on the way to a concert. The staff were lovely - friendly and attentive. The beer was a perfect temperature, and the food on offer was great - they even have a separate vegetarian menu with creative different meals, not just you average veggie korma! I had potato dumplings with fig and spinach filling, and... More

Helpful and friendly staff taking the time to answer any questions. Great service. All our dishes looked beautiful and mine tasted fantastic. The hot towel after is a lovely touch too.

Last time we stayed in Croydon we struggled to find a decent restaurant, so this time we did some research and booked the Khyber Restaurant. Both the service and the food were excellent with some really well cooked dishes and a pretty well priced wine list. Despite it being a busy Friday night the food came at a well judged... More
