“This is my closest restaurant and I choose to drive for miles”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

This is sadly a very dated place which is waiting for someone to take it on. Last time I visited was about a year ago, for a takeaway. I placed an order for 8pm, arrived at 7:55 and then waited for over an hour for rice to be cooked. It is an Indian restaurant and takeaway! That was the last visit. Previously I have eaten inside and have been disappointed with average menu and filth accumulating on tables and decor.

“Best Indian restaurant for miles around”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Traditional fare, generous portions of tasty cuisine at reasonsble price and a genuinely warm welcome. My son's have been visiting India Villa for years with their friends and always enjoy so we decided on a visit. A great surprise and relief after poor meal at the packed Jal sagar in Dunmow. Strongly recommend you drive the extra 15 minutes to India Villa. Wife had their tasty Singature dish, which was excellent. So glad to find a decent Indian restaurant in North Essex/Suffolk borders. Will be our regular. Deserves to be busier.

“Best in area of Saffron Walden and Thaxted”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Went with wife on very hot evening to Thaxted. Lovely drive from our village outside Saffron Walden. Beers in Bistro down from Restaurant and then meal in Villa. Very few people there and seated at front of restaurant looking out to Thaxted Church, a beautiful building.

Service was attentive. Pompdoms usual but dips excellent. Ordered prawn dish and wife had lamb after prawn puree starter. Food was excellen with large portions on very hot plates. We took half of meal away to eat on another day. It was very good and meal was just over £35 including drinks.

We have been here on a number of occasions and believe it is the best in the area, particularly if you can go early before it becomes full.

Will be back.
