I get regular takeaways from Khyber owing to its location right in front of my house. I had few firm favourites over the years like Chicken Rezala, as chefs changed the taste changed and I am not a fan of it anymore but I am happy with the Bangladeshi Biryani they offer, and a very tasty Paneer anjeer kofta curry...

For some reason the Khyber has been fairly quiet on our recent visits . Our latest visit was a bit disappointing due to lack of atmosphere and new inexperienced staff . The main meals were just ok but the naan breads were not up to the normal standard - on reflection we should have sent them back . Should we... More

We are fortunate to travel and eat out a lot and, with our Barclays Gourmet Card this place flagged up with an offer. I wish we hadn't have bothered. We were greeted by a confused trainee waitress while two guys were busy taking take-away orders behind the bar, the priority of this place is a takeaway with some tables. We... More

Food was really good especially the coconut lamb curry and grilled king prawns. Daal and paneer also very nice. Portions could be slightly bigger, especially the rice, but overall really good quality for the price.

This place was recommended by a friend and I haven't been disappointed when I've been. There's a vegetarian menu which has an excellent selection of vegetarian (and I think I saw vegan) curries. Staff have been pleasant and attentive when I've been, the food has arrived promptly and has been delicious. I had the dumplings with fig and spinach and... More

Visited with my partner on a warm Sunday afternoon. All started off well, poppodoms arrived promptly but the condiments were awful. Mango chuckney more like jam, some pink onion thing very bitter and strange tasting. So onto starters, in fairness my seafood platter was great, really nice salmon but my partners meat platter was fatty and bland. Mains...any better well... More

Tonight was the first and last time we'll be visiting. Lamb shank was so tough it couldn't be cut with a knife, manager (who took our order without even saying thank you at the end....I will not speak to my customers we think!) argued with us and said he'd take it to the kitchen to cut it...if it doesn't fall...

If you are looking for an Indian restaurant with a difference this is the place to go. Brilliant menu with a choice of goat, venison, lamb shank and duck. Good service and a great place for either a romantic meal or for meeting up with friends.

It was the first time I've tried this restaurant and wasn't disappointed. The food was a bit on the spicy side - but well presented and the staff were very attentive but not in your face. Wouldn't mind going back there sometime soon and trying something else - as having a separate vegetarian menu is quite good! Recommended! Just be... More
