Me and my partner visited King Karai in August 2016 for a first time. It was early in the evening and it wasn't very busy. The service was good and we really enjoyed out meal. So we decided to return a couple of weeks ago and we were a bit disappointed. It was in the afternoon and it seemed like... More

We always order our Indian takeaways from here. We have never had a bad meal. It's always fresh and piping hot. The staff are really friendly and we would recommend this Indian to anyone wanting to try it. Excellent

Another really good meal tonight. As a family we have dined here many times over the last 15 years. We have always enjoyed the food and the service is always excellent. King Karai has to be one of the best Indian restaurants in Preston.

This is place is my Friday night special takeaway. I order over the phone and go to collect in 10 min. Family run. I trust their quality. Never been disappointed.

I'm a big fan of Indian food but sadly often disappointed by some of the restaurants I visit but the King Karai was a very pleasant surprise indeed. It was pretty busy when I visited with some family members which is usually a good sign. However, despite being busy the service was good and the staff were very attentive. It... More

We got some curries for New Years Eve and again the quality of the food was amazing, as was the service. If you are looking for a good curry in Preston this is the place to go.

Service was really good but the food was very poor, it was very bland and didn't taste freshly made at all. It was our first visit as a family and I'm afraid it will be our last.

I have been coming here fiancé I was a child with my parents. Now me and my husband come for a nice quiet meal. Staff are really friendly, atmosphere is really lovely and fitting and food is fantastic. We will continue to be loyal customers!
