We ate at Karnavar a few weeks ago.  We'd driven/walked past this restaurant many times and then decided to give it a go after reading positive reviews on tripadvisor. (sorry Timeout, but there wasn't one on here!)  

I can't stress enough how pleasantly surprised I was at the quality and standard of the food.  I judge how much I like an Indian restaurant by how good the kebabs and grill menu are...you will not be disappointed!  We had a starter, grill and main item each - greedy I know but it was that good! 

The menu is South Indian with British/seasonal influences.  I recommend Scallops Mango Coriander, Hariyali ChickenTikka and Tulsi Seekh Kebab (obviously).  My main of choice was the Dover Sole Mappas - but it wasn't available and had the Travancore fillet of Sea Bass instead - was a bit carb heavy for my liking.  Maybe if I hadn't eaten two starters I would have enjoyed my main a little more.  Also, ask for more of their chilli sauces, there's not enough on the plate - i'ts delicious!

Thumbs up for menu and service.  It is closer to ££/£££ (definitely not budget).
