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!

King Karai is the one restaurant we go to if we want a good curry, despite it being a bit of a drive from home. Great food. Loved it today and had great time.
