“Amazing atmosphere good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

We have been here several times recently and it has been consistently busy will a lovely atmosphere. Food is good but not amazing and you do sometimes have to be prepared to be patient, a nice change from being rushed through in my opinion. I recommend a visit.

“Superb everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

Wow! Amazing food, service, venue and food! Yup, so good i said it twice :-)

Service was impeccable and even the chef came out to ask how the food was... and i told him it was amazing. So many flavours, succulent chicken on a bed of lemon chilli rice.

I travel all over the country and always try the local curries, this is by far the best I've tasted in a long time.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

As regular curry goers we know a good curry when we see one and we certainly weren't disappointed at the Qarma. The lamb curries were amazing. The atmosphere and surroundings in the old mill were fantastic. Staff were very attentive and very anxious to please. When we sent back a starter because it was lukewarm and we had a visitation from at least three staff accompanied by lots of apologies, a fresh starter, a free naan bread with the main course and a free suite. A good selection of wines were on offer at a reasonable price as well. Definitely worth a return visit.

“Slightly out of the way, but fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

I am a bit of a lightweight when it comes to Indian food, but the choice is fantastic, the staff make you feel so welcome without hanging around and a lovely bar area to realax before or after your meal.
