“Consistent as ever”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

No matter how many times we return, at whatever time in the evening, however unannounced, these boys always do the business. Superb food, excellent service and a very friendly atmosphere.

“Good food and fast service.”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Worth a visit if you're up for curry in Buxton. The menu is a little varied than you would find in the usual curry houses.The service is quick.

“Curry in a hurry in the Tuscany of the North....”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Decided to have an evening out in Buxton for a change.We were feeling hungry and my wife really wanted a curry and we stumbled upon this place as we were in the Marketplace.It has nice decor,a sort of tropical feel with illuminated palms behind arches at the back of the dining area.It was a very warm sunny evening and it just added to the ambience for me(I dont like eating in dark places,some indian restaurants need a torch to see the menu)..Service was incredibly quick,almost rushed with the main meal appearing while we were still munching the poppadoms..This suited us as we wanted to get in the pub as soon as possible as we were running late but if you were wanting to linger over your meal you would certainly feel rushed and it could spoil your enjoyment.The staff are not particularly friendly but were polite and attentive...The curry we had was the Tandoori Chicken Kharai which was superb with fresh ingredients and cooked in the Kharai not just poured into one to be served(it was bouncing hot and sizzling away) We shared that between us adding rice,chips and a Garlic Nan which along with the poppadoms and chutney was ample with only a tiny bit left over(we cannot bear to leave loads of waste after a curry and always take what is remaining home in the proverbial doggy bag but as we had a train journey and night of boozing ahead would not have been practical) If I had to say anything negative about the experience it would be that a couple of the poppadoms tasted non too fresh(a bit chewy)and had probably been standing around a while.The chutney tray a bit disappointing lacking lime pickle etc but we would be being picky..All in all an enjoyable start to an evening out in the Tuscany of the North(as I heard Buxton described as by the posh bloke off Top Gear)...If you are in Buxton and need a curry in a hurry you wont be disappointed with the Taj Mahal
