“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Went last night with a couple of friends, having not been for a while. Even so, we were recognised when we arrived. Tried a Korahi this time for a change. Never had one here before and it was excellent. One of the best I have ever had. Service was good. As soon as we sat down we were asked what we would like to drink and received our pappadoms in no time. We then ate these at our leisure whilst making up our mind about our main course. The food arrived all together and piping hot. Everyone said they enjoyed their food and it was one of the best. Must go back again soon I think.

“Very handy for Gonville and University arms hotels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

We found this restaurant well worth the visit. Staff were very polite and attentive, and the elder statesman of the team (the owner?) even emerged to inform us - as we pursued a friend's enquiry - where the Shalimar had once been, in proximity on Regent's fifty years ago. We thought the fish tikka and onion bhajee starters were very good value, and being vegetarian, especially appreciated the first class saag bhajee and the unusual main paneer dish with tasty sauce from the tandoori; however, the tarka daal was less flavoursome in terms of core garlic than that to which we are accustomed. A good range of wines at reasonable prices was welcome, and an efficient, timely provision of the bill at the end seemed very professional. It's not the most attractively designed of restaurant interiors - rather brash and stark - (and the name isn't inspirational - why doesn't some Cambridge curry house take the imaginative risk to rename itself 'Some Like It Hot', and post Lemmon/Monroe/Curtis glossy b & w photo stills around the walls? They might even attract a somewhat more discerning and loyal clientele?!), but we still could honestly say afterwards that we'd enjoyed a good meal, fairly priced,on a cold night in Cambridge. The culinary/dining outcomes of the chef and serving team had very much met our expectations. Well done, Curry Gardeners.

“Good curry and friendly service at the Curry Garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

We stopped here to try to fight off a cold with a good, hot curry. The service was very welcoming and helpful, and the food was quite good. Started off with papadam and an assortment of pickles, and then had the Shakooti Chicken as the main. This was one of the specialities and quite nice with coconut and spices. The chicken was tender and had a nice flavor. Was a decent curry house all in all.

“Nice food late at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

We ate here after seeing a show at the Cornex. Lovely food, good service. Will eat here again, this was our second visit after a show at the Cornex. Quite pricy, but then again Cambridge is a city centre, so to be expected.
