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!

This is our favourite Indian restaurant, good food, good service, friendly staff. It has parking. It deserves to be better known.

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.

This Indian restaurant is one of the best that we have had the pleasure of using, either for a sit down meal or having them deliver some of their feasts. The quantity and quality of the food is really good and the variety of the menu is very hard to beat. We had a large choice of food delivered to... More

Then a woman In tracky bottoms and scruffy Nike trainers sat there talking to him (also pissed up) was an instant put off. The floor was covered in food and some sort... More

The usual form is to visit a pub beforehand and then turn up at the restaurant for a pre-booked table at 8.00pm. On... More

A lovely restaurant with amazing food, the service is second to none, so attentive! Perfect location and they often have offers on which makes it unbelievably cheaper! Recommend to anyone for an Indian outside of the city centre.
