They label this restaurant as slightly higher end than usual Indians and also price it a pound or two above as a result. But it really failed to deliver we went as a group of ten and the staff were polite. All started well poppadoms ordered however the pickles well presented and tasty however lacked a spicy one. Nobody ordered starters so went straight to mains. I ordered a chicken dish which had no flavour made clearly as a sauce and dry precooked chicken thrown in. Supposed to taste of bay leaves cocunut and red chilli no taste at all from any of those just very generic. Another diner ordered a very well presented chicken dish but again no flavour don't b fooled by presentation. The lamb dishes fairly better as people in the party said a bit more flavour. However 9 out of 10 diners did not enjoy their meal and top it off a really bad tummy this morning which never happens being used to Indian food and especIally as there was no spice!

In Croydon, by far the best Indian restaurant. Staff were helpful, food good, but could improve dependant on what you order. Nice ambient atmosphere, clean and well maintained. Has the resonance of a long established business. Highly recommended to book on weekend nights. WIll definitely go back.

We had the Festival menu which consisted of an amuse bouche followed by three excellent courses with enough choice to appeal to all. I had the chicken skewers followed by lamb shank curry - all absolutely delicious. The restaurant was spacious and attractive and the staff were attentive without being overbearing. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

I don't normally review local restaurants but...
Went to the Khyber with friends and family, some of whom aren't massive curry lovers but it was the choice of the birthday girl.
Staff very helpful, wide range of dishes including according to my dad the best lamb chops.
Curry's are also excellent, all of the party agreed it was the best curry they'd ever had.

I think the title says it all. No special items on the menu but good curries you would expect to see and nicely presnted.
