“Early bird special”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Stumbled across this restaurant whilst we were looking around, there was a sign outside advertising an early bird special till 8pm, well it was 7.15 and we are early birds so in we went.
Very friendly staff, decor a bit dated and furniture all very cheap and cheerful but the food was extremely tasty with light flavoursome sauces, I had the onion bhaji and garlic chilli chicken which were both delicious, my husband had aloo purée and chicken dupiaza, a blast from the past but really lovely - both curries were without the usual pools of ghee and did not suffer flavour wise at all but my very favourite was the garlic rice which had tiny zesty cubes of lemon peel in it which exploded with flavour, all in all - gorgeous.

“Nice enough food, haphazard (but polite) service”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Went with some family for an evening meal. The staff were very friendly and the food is certainly nice enough; not amazing - but certainly on a par with other Indian Restaurants in the area.

The only downwside was the service which got more haphazard as it got busier. We had to remind the waiter about drinks orders a number of times and at the end we got the wrong bill. Any errors were sorted out though and it was done very politely; so it wasn't a major issue.

It's basically your standard British curry house. Food and prices are reasonable.

“Early 'buffet'”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We loved the service! The young lad serving us was a real delight and a pleasure to chat too. He advised us on places to visit during our stay in Chester, and even ordered us a taxi back to our hotel at the end of our meal. Food good, but he made it for us! Thank you!

This place is our family favourite, they never fail to impress. The menu is extensive and the food is as always fresh and very flavoursome. Relaxed atmosphere and competent service and definitely is value for money.

“Little India in Chester”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

It was 2am, and we were absolutely famished.
The crew at the Cruise nightclub recommended this fine dining place.
The restaurant was busy and the atmosphere very pleasant.
The staff were wide-awake and very attentive with big smiles on their faces.
The food was fresh and supreme and coffee fantastic.
Perfect ending to a night out in Chester
Thanks you guys at the Step in to India.
