I just go for takeout curries, but even in the short time I'm there I can tell this place is well run as I have worked in the food and drink industry for over 10 years.
In terms of service I should first point out that I don't go to places needing to be fussed over and made to feel important and these guys strike the balance just right -they're super polite without being patronising and address most of the guests I've seen them talking to by name -which is always a good sign!
The curry here is superb, I like my curry hot so I always order the hottest on the menu here, which they say contains naga chillis. I'm not sure it does contain real nagas, as I tend to cook with them alot myself when they're in season, so I know their distinct flavour which seems to be missing in the "Zhal Zhul" -or maybe I just drink too much beer before I have one!
I understand how hard it can be to get hold of those chillis out of season so won't mark them down for that, that curry is plenty hot anyway and still really nice.
In terms of value for money the Valley can't be faulted, you get discount for takeouts and can pop in to the pub nextdoor for a pint while they cook it! It's a bit pricier than some takeouts, but then that's because it's better than pretty much any takeout I've been to for curry.
People will pay more for quality, a very simple business model that so many restaurant and bar owners seem to forget after a while, but not these guys -long may it continue!
