Great food. Traditional Indian. I think you can tell a good Indian restraunt by how busy it is. This place is busy every night. You can watch the food being cooked. Try the mixed grill (3 people sharing).

I visited karahi express last year and the food is good, tasty and the restaurant has a canteen feeling which is very casual. You can also take your own alcohol in for the table

Went there for an evening meal after late work on a Tuesday evening. The place wasn't very full and was seated quite quickly. The staff was quite welcoming, menu and both poppadoms and dipping sauces came quickly too. We ordered a vegetable curry, king pawn curry and chicken wings as well as rice and a Roti (bread). It took over... More

I used to say how do they get so much flavour into their curries, but the last two times I have been there the curries are nothing like they were before. No flavour, huge lumps of tough meat that looke like beef to me even though I ordered lamb, and really rather tasteless (lamb karahi) The chicken bhuna was absolutely... More

Great place, really popular place. Good food. North Indian food, but they have it all. We had a lot of different dishes, good taste. Cheap.

Don't really go out for Indian food as I have the best made at home, but when I do this is my choice. Really good food. My favourites are the mixed grill and the butter chicken. This restaurant is buzzing! Really great atmosphere. You can also bring your own booze! It gets noisy, so be prepared!

For what it is and the location it was not bad. Was with my wife the food came reasonably quick. My issues were that the food could have been a lot more warmer and also the tandoori naans were very hard and crispy. Chicken karahi was nice but for them 2 issues i will not be visiting again. Also they... More

This is a modern and lively restaurant serving classic curries and punjabi cuisine. I can recommend the mixed grill, lamb and okra - delicious! An enjoyable and affordable night out for a group of 7 people. It's concept is simple none of the frills; you can bring your own drinks ie soft drinks, wine or any spirit. Do book a... More
