We say…

One of the most revered and well-known Indian restaurants in NottinghamThe Curry Lounge has recently reopened under the new proprietor Safdar Azam, a gifted chef in his own right. He has redecorated and revamped the already famous Punjabi restaurant to push for new heights. 

The restaurant itself is expansive without leaving the customers feeling stranded in the middle of a huge dining hall. The plush seating and soft lighting allows for a perfectly relaxing dining experience right in the middle of the city centreIf you want great home cooked food, brilliant service and VIP treatment, then you can't go wrong with the Curry Lounge Nottingham.

The menu on offer is extensive and showcases the very best of authentic Indian and Punjabi cuisine with a home-cooked approach headed by the restaurants new head chef Durga Dass.  If it’s good enough for the Lord Mayor, her Consort and Imran Tahir (Top South African Cricketer) then it’s good enough for us! There is a huge variety of starters and mains available, as well as a section dedicated to vegetarian diners who don't want to settle for just the '1 or 2' options that are found at other restaurants. Some of our favourites include the Gosht Saagwala which is a Slow Braised Lamb dish with Spinach tossed in Garlic and crumbled roasted Fenugreek leaves. For the vegetarians among us, we also recommend the Chana Masala a delicious dish with boiled Chickpeas cooked in an Onion Gravy and finished with delicate spices. Your taste buds are certainly in for a treat with whatever dish you decide to try!

The restaurant itself boasts a large open-plan layout which has been cleverly divided into sections to create intimate booths, private corners and larger spaces with a feeling of exclusivity for special occasions. In the centre of the room suspended from the ceiling is a jaw-dropping swirl of fibre-optic lights that change colour throughout the evening adding to the stylish and utterly inviting atmosphere that radiates throughout the restaurant.

We all know that you can’t have an exceptional dining experience without exceptional service and the brand new team headed by Safdar and Durga Dass will ensure that you are never left wanting from the moment you step through the door to the moment you collect your coat! The service at the Curry Lounge is exceptional, staff taking their time to cater for guests every need, making it a truly special and personable experience.

With a chic and majestic yet contemporary décor, Curry Lounge offers superb food and excellent service all within a relaxed yet professional atmosphere. Whatever the occasion, expect brilliance from the Curry Lounge in Nottingham every single time. It is easy to find curry in Nottingham, but there's nothing quite like the Curry Lounge.

    Food was lovely and presentable, the female. Server waitress wasn't that friendly and could do with some customer service training, the male waiter who occasionally came over was very good nice polite and smiley, the venue was nice clean and pleasant.

    Overall:

    We normally really enjoy coming here for food but unfortunately this time we left feeling let down. We started with poppodoms and pickles which were nice except the pickle tray was taken away before my husband had finished his poppodoms which was not good. The starter was lovely, we had a sampler platter which was really tasty. The main was a real let down as both curries were watery with not much taste other than chilli. The menu has changed since our last visit and it is massive, do feel they need to revert back to a smaller menu so the can concentrate on delivering exceptional food, quality over quantity I think. Service was ok but felt as though we were being watched as restaurant was quiet, also a service charge was automatically included in the bill wich we have never had before. I asked for this to be removed as we like to be able to tip at our discretion and not being told to. All in all not a great experience but unusual as we normally really enjoy the food and atmosphere here.

    Overall:

    It was my wife's birthday and I booked a table at Curry Lounge. Food was good, table next to us was a little bit noisy even though it was still quite early. Was disappointed that I had mentioned that it was my wife's birthday in the special requests section of the booking but got no recognition of this at all, not even a happy birthday.

    Never been before as tend to go to posh one on Maid Marian way. So, was looking forward to a change. I am now kicking myself for leaving it so long, it was stunning!!! Food>> gorgeous, great portions really taste, fresh & quality. Service>> polite, friendly and there without being in your face. Rare to find waiters with a personality and going the extra mile. Great relaxed and cosy feel to the restaurant, great buzz for a mid week. Will be back soon to Curry Lounge convert.

    I'm a sucker for a creamy butter chicken and this place does them perfectly!! I always wanted to visit after seeing them on Gordon Ramsay and I'm telling you he did a slap-up job at making this curry house THE best in Nottingham!

    We booked for our wedding anniversary, requested a quiet table and was taken to a booth out of the way to everyone. The manager sent over complimentary glass or wine and upgraded our order and they also sent over a complimentary dessert. Food as ever lovely and tasty, would always recommend this restaurant to anyone after a good curry.

    Fantastic food, but service seemed a tad late from starter to main course and asked quite frequently 'how's your meal?' which i must say is one of my bug bares. But overall the food and the setting was brilliant.

    Overall:

    The service was fantastic, we were really looked after, but not watched over. The food was lovely, and I was really pleased that the 20 per cent discount from booking through Go Dine was very discreet. We did not have to ask for it, it was just deducted from the total on the receipt. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, if you want great food and excellent service. Rebecca from Nottingham
