Decided to give this restaurant a try and have never regretted it. As other reviewers have said, while the other restaurants are not bad, this one certainly has the edge.
The staff are very friendly and encourage you to try new dishes, as a vegetarian I was very happy with the choice and quality.
Overall a very good place to eat!

Nort surprising. Dreadful decor, awful food. Lamb tough and inedible, sauces were watery and tasteless and whoile experience not a patch on the Taj Mahal opposite.

That's not to say the others are poor (they aren't) but this is the one we keep coming back to. The service is great. The staff are very friendly. They make you very welcome and feel your custom is valued.

The menu is varied and has unusual dishes you don't get elsewhere. The special dishes all appear to be cooked using good, fresh ingredients from scratch rather than from a stock sauce. I've been through pretty much the entire menu. My favourites are the lamb shahee karahi, special lamb balti and bindi chicken.

The location is convenient, just off Buxton's main market square on the high street and while the view is not the most scenic in town you do get to watch the world go by as you enjoy your meal.

Definitely consider Russi if you fancy a curry in Buxton.

I travel around the country a lot on business and having been to Russi's, I have to say it was quite possibly the best Indian restaurant I have been to. Excellent service, unique and different menu and great atmosphere. I may move to Buxton ! Please check it out !
