Usually sit and eat here but didn't have the time for that, so ordered a takeaway, which I then collected. As always, great standard of food and very prompt service. This must be one of the best takeaways in Plymouth

It's rare to find an interesting Asian restaurant in the West Country, but the Indiya is worth a visit. Based outside the city centre the Indiya combines the traditional (lamb biryani, for example) and the local with surprises like crab malabri. Nice ambience and a lack of intrusive background music attract the younger crowd. Good service and good ingredients make... More

Been living in the area for a number of years. Periodically visited here to induldge. Always consistantly good food, balance of flavours in each dish are always spot on, take away times are always punctual and reasonable, definetly one of the best takeaways within the stoke and devonport area.

Regular visitors of Cafe Indiya and we are never disappointed with the food and service. The food is fantastic and regularly has special offers on in the local paper or online. Decent bar provided too and a good ambience. Staff are always attentive and friendly, always enjoy our time there.

This place came recommended so I thought I would give it a try. Friendly service but the food really was not good. Probably the worst chicken tikka masala I have ever had - far too much sauce that was seriously over sweetened (& coloured) with a few bits of tasteless chicken. Will not be back and would not recommend!

Randomly popped in on a Friday night, the restaurant wasn't too busy so even without a reservation we were able to sit and have a meal. Staff very friendly and the dining room warm and cosy- exactly what you need on a very cold night. I am overall satisfied by the food, nice flavors, good quality and cooked on the... More

I have never been disappointed at this Indian restaurant, food always tasty and delicious. I am a little boring and have the onion bahgees and tandoori mixed grill, mainly because I enjoy it so much. Beautifully presented and very enjoyable

I bought a chicken tikka masala, chicken korma, rice and naan bread cost £17, both curries were tasteless and no flavour in the naan. It was the worse takeaway I've ever bought very disappointing!! Sorry cafe India but this was bad!
