We went to Cha Chy to celebrate a 50th birthday. We chose Cha Chy based on the reviews. However, I found them overpriced and the food was average. I have an excellent Indian Take Away not far from where I live and found the food there far superior to Cha Chy. One of the dishes we ordered was King Prawn Madras for £12.95. The prawns were not King Prawn sized, there were very few prawns and it was not very spicey. The tarka dhal was watery and lacked flavour. Overall the food was fresh but rather bland. The restaurant itself was quite pleasant inside, clean and modern. The waiter we had was attentive and the food arrived quickly. (I found the Head Water/Manager(?) a bit smarmy). I won't be going back to Cha Chy, too expensive, average food and small portions!

Pros
1: Crisp naan cut and served in quarters
2: Tasty veg & meat samosas
3: Contemporary decor
4: The toilets look like a 'raiders of the lost ark' prop though are very clean
5: They serve Bangla beer

Cons
1: The meat in my lamb madras was old and tough
2: There was a predominant taste of garum masala in my madras and they also used tomato puree - I think fresh tomatos would have created a better taste

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed.
The food is excellent in all respects and it would be difficult to better the food anywhere else.
Great value and attentive service.
