Took family to Darchini's Banquet Night and we had a very nice time. The food was excellent, beautifully tasty and served on piping hot plates, set in a Tudor style dining-room. We tried the marvellous Chicken Nazakat (forget chicken tikka), a sumptuous potato and cheese balls dish and roasted pepper stuffed with chicken/sauce/spices. For the mains, we asked for tandoori...

As our group of eight friends are spread across Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey I decided to find a restaurant equidistant. We were to meet at the venue, and if the weather was favourable to ride our motorcycles. As we all like Indians I researched using trip advisor and settled on Darchini. As this was a Friday we decided to book... More

While I can say I have had nice meals in the past, Darchini is letting its standards slip based on recent experiences. Last resort was my last visit I tried the Seafood Mixed Karahi.... Not a cheap dish at 13.95 but the main seafood ingredient was the chopped up seafood sticks!!!! The cheapest of ingredients which fortunately had been removed... More

Always my first choice for an Indian in Horsham, Staff are always friendly and the food is always exceptional. The delivery service is always great as well especially on weekdays!

We have been going here for years and the food and service remains first class. Whether you are dining during the week or on Saturdays or taking the Sunday buffet selection, I can highly recommend the experience. Mike

Darchini was my choice of takeaway instead of Rajkumar, New Curry Centre etc. The curry wasn't disappointing, I also only had to wait around 5 minutes before they handed the food over. Unfortunately, I found a 1cm long piece of metal in with my food... (something you'd find from a tin can or similar) This went unnoticed until it cut... More

We went to Darchini with 4 friends, 2 living nearby in Horsham who new the restaurant. It is in a nice but incongruous setting for an Indian restaurant, in an old Tudor style (mock Tudor) villa. Service was friendly but overall rather slow, which is the key thing preventing me giving a 5 star review, as the restaurant was really... More

As you arrive you are greeted and seated. Staff are very attentive and hardworking, food is excellent cooked to order. The actual restaurant is set in old world charm. It is usually a very popular place so at weekends to reserve a table.
