Recently went here with a group of 6. No booking required a good table. Great service by staff, all very friendly and welcoming. We all had a different curry and no complaints from anywhere on the table. Good portions, good value no complaints and will be going again!

I have been to this restaurant many times in the last few years; it's become our local staple place for a very good Indian. The food is always very good, occasionally excellent as it was for this particular takeaway. They don't have the traditional dishes in their menu, however they will cook pretty much anything upon request. A couple of... More

Went over Christmas for traditional lad's curry night. Wasn't particularly looking forward to it, as have never been blown away at Reema, and service in past has been a bit hit and miss. However, can have no complaints this time around. Service was efficient, and food was far tastier than I remember from previous visits. Now on the list for... More

Booked a table of 4 a week ago for 6.30 specifically asked if they were open new years day to which they said yes. We got to the restaurant at 6.15 and found it to be closed. Thankfully Cafe Spice was open and we are currently enjoying a fantastic meal

A table had been booked for a Saturday night the week before dining for 4 people. My wife and I turned up at 7pm sharp and were shown to the table for 4 (a round table for 4 but positioned against the wall to make it a tight table for 4). My fellow diners were running a little late. My... More

Our group of four had a rehearsal in the Hash bar next door, so on a recommendation from a friend we decided to 'pop' in here beforehand for an early evening meal. The place was empty when we arrived at 6.30pm., but rapidly filled up over the next hour, and was full when we left at 7.45pm. We were welcomed... More

Before entering the establishment, we thought it was a take-away place due to the bright and blue-white light. And just inside the door, some people were sitting against the wall with their coats on just waiting for their take-away. However, we entered anyway, and found a less noisy, less bright, and slightly more crowded part with dining guests on the... More

The food is delicious whether you eat in or take out! The staff are always friendly and often give complimentary sides which is nice. I would highly recommend the rogan josh, it's very tasty!
