This restaurant is of top quality. Food is also of top quality and portions are good. The service from staff is exceptional and will cater for all your needs. I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant. To be in the top 5 of the good curry guide speaks for itself.

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

Vegetable Korai just an unbelievable dish which you do not see in many other places. Friendly and welcoming, its a Bedford institution and you cannot go wrong.

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
