I phoned a few weeks ago to book a table for 26 people. I turned up and the tables sorted, everything was organised and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was amazing too! Empress of India has never let us down. Thank you...More

Took the family out on a Friday night, early. Service was good and staff very helpful and pleasant however the food was very mediocre. What was rated as two chilli's barely rated one and the green chill's I did have were like spicy green beans....More
