A kerfuffle of school children pushed their way into Karahi King, lining up at the counter, eager for their takeaway lunch of kebab-filled nan bread. It would seem this well-worn local favourite is keen on fostering its future clientele. An environmental health inspection of the premises appeared to be under way during our visit, but staff need have few worries there; this is a spick and span operation with easy-wipe tables, new blonde-wood chairs and a well-run open kitchen. Here, atop furious gas burners, rest KK’s raison d’être: capacious wok-like karahi pans, ready to accommodate any number of ingredients and masala mixes. A karahi methi chicken was wonderfully tangy with fresh leafy fenugreek, while a starter of masala fish consisted of two flaky chunks of well-marinated cod clothed in a light, spicy batter. A notch down in class was some sloppy tarka dahl topped with powdered masala, and a keema nan of almost omelette-like consistency. But jeera rice, nutty with freshly toasted cumin, was a fine dish, and overall the meal was a pleasure to eat. Staff were prompt, but they get more of a workout at weekends and for dinner.

It's just from bad to worse don't know what s happening... Any comments from management..... TODAY I WILL BE ORDERING BUTTER CHICKEN IF NOT THIS WILL BE MY LAST ORDER


Have been going there on and off for the past 10 years. It has gradually got worse and worse in terms of the foof quality. Their lamb chops and seekh kebabs used to be to die for. Now the lamb chops are tough mutton chops and the seekh kebabs are dry and tough. On my last visit I swore that I would never return. Cost cutting on food stuffs is very short sighted. It all started to go downhill when the orignal sole owner took on a partner (his uncle)
