I have been coming here for 30 years and never had a bad meal. The family always look after you. The food never fails. They will help you choose if you are unsure or want to try something different.. thanks for yet another fab night.

The majority of the time I have take aways from here and have only eaten in a couple of times. The food is wonderful. And when I have eaten in the staff have been friendly and the food has been hot, not luke warm. My favourite curry house in Bedford.

This is my regular curry house. I've tried most in Bedford but this is the regular go to, especially for a take-away. Good portions, tasty food.

We went recently for a family dinner and were very pleasantly surprised! The restaurant looks like an ordinary curry house on an ordinary Street but it's just a bit better than that. The service started as impeccably polite but soon we developed a rapport and the smiles warmed the service! All was great, a deeply and richly hot lamb Naga... More

We have been to Magna restaurant before and loved it, so thought we'd treat ourselves for a take away from here, but what was delivered was far from the delights we have had before. Food was later than stated. It was Luke warm at best, and the rice all clumped together which indicates that it's been sat for ages. The... More

Having lived away from the UK for ten years. It was an enormous pleasure to bring my family here. This is the most authentic, exciting menu, with a quality and a consistency that has been maintained over decades. My children, aged six and nine, knew nothing of Indian cuisine, while I and my wife were enjoying a wonderful blast from... More
