“Delicious Curry”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Curry Café is exactly what it describes itself as, a café which serves up the most delicious curries. Small, with only half a dozen tables, and very clean, it also does all the usual takeaway food, including pizzas, burgers, kebabs, as well as curry. We presume that most of their business is takeaway
We fancied a curry after going to the pictures, and the reviews suggested that we would not be disappointed.
We chose to share a couple of starters, the mixed kebab and chana puri. Before we got them, they provided complimentary poppadoms and chutney. Nice wee touch, which was well appreciated and went nicely with the bottle of Cava, we took with us. It is bring your own bottle, and we weren't charged for cork-age.
The starters were both delicious. The chickpeas were nicely spiced, flavoursome and the puri made a lovely parcel for the chickpeas. The kebabs were tasty, chicken, lamb and mince, served with three tasty sauces, salad and spiced onions.
For mains we had chicken jalfrezie, which they spiced up for us, and green herb lamb, accompanied by a couple of garlic nan and a portion of fries. Both sauces were rich and tasty, whilst the chicken and lamb just melts in your mouth. Neither of us even used our knives. The garlic nan was just as we like it, crispy on the one side and soft, puffy and garlicky on the other. The fries were regular thin french fries.
The service was extremely good,very friendly and attentive, but still allowing you to enjoy your meal. We felt right at home.
Overall, our food was superb, and the prices are extremely reasonable. With our Gourmet Card discount we were just over £22. It should have been about £28. If you want “fine dining”, this isn't for you, but if you want really tasty, affordable food and friendly service then this is the place fro you. We can't praise the Curry Café enough.

Great place, great ambience, great service, great food. Took my mother there who isn't a huge 'curry' fan but she was delighted with the food, we'll be back!

“Fancy? No. Great value and delicious? Yes”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

I have eaten in here a few times and had takeaways and it has always been consistently good. Incredible value if you get the meal deal (£15 for dinner for 2) and it's BYOB. Curries are beautifully prepared with the usual suspects and a few different dishes on the menu. Service is friendly and while it's not fancy, it's cheap, cheerful and you'd be hard pushed to find anything of equivalent value or taste.
