Went for a meal with my husband and son. From the outset we felt like an inconvenience, no pleasantries from the waiter/owner and definitely no manners.
The restaurant was busy, with only him serving and he was very stressed (get more staff??). A couple of our friends came in for a table and he was extremely rude to them, and they (understandably) walked out. This made for a very bad atmosphere and we quickly ate up and left. We had also ordered some food to take away, as well as asking to take our leftover Nan bread home - when we got home, there was no Nan bread! The food was mediocre, my husband didn't enjoy his meal at all - but I wonder if it was more the atmosphere caused by the owner that tainted the flavour!!
Needless to say, we definitely won't be returning.

we ordered lots of lovely food that tasted good but found we were squished into a corner table, ignored a little and left waiting while more 'regulars' got the good service. unfortunately that put us off coming back so guess we will never be a 'regular' getting the good customer service.

The food at Khushboo was lovely. Unfortunately, though, our evening was marred by the incredibly rude waiter who served us (who, I believe, is also the owner). He seemed very stressed from the beginning, forbidding us from moving to a bigger table to accommodate our whole party, and became extremely angry when one member of our party commented that the curry that we were told was 'medium' was actually rather mild. Our friend did not appreciate the thorough telling off, which went on for several minutes. Another fairly large group of diners then arrived, only to be yelled at for a long time and at quite some volume. This man was unacceptably rude and we have decided never to return to the Khushboo as there are plenty of alternative restaurants in Brackley with lovely staff.

I have been eating at The Khushboo for many years now and have always have a great experience there. The Food, service and atmosphere are always really good.

Been going here for years now. The food is consistently good, served promptly and the owner is a great character. Charmingly rude but that makes this restaurant stand out in the area. I highly recommend the varied menu. It's very good for a mean in as well as takeaways.
