    A special occasion was made one to remember at Okra. Great service and lovely food. We will be back again soon. Thank you!

    Had a fantastic meal at Okra. Spacious and elegant surroundings with attentive staff. Everyone enjoyed their starter and main and wine choices were good too! Will be back soon!

    Arrived ten minutes early for table booked for 20.15hrs did not get to sit down till 20.50hrs - previous occupants declined to vacate. Service was fine not rushed, food very good. Compensated by way of free popadoms & pickles plus around of drinks, but overall experience tainted by prolonged wait having took the trouble to book in advance

We say…

Okra (stylised O-kra) is an esteemed Indian restaurant found in the bustling city centre of Derby. Situated on Friar Gate, the restaurant is in a handy location, with a car park to the front (pay & display), and a private car park at the rear which can be reached from George Street.

Okra lends itself to the Indian fine dining experience, featuring a large and spacious dining room, a fully-stocked bar and separate lounge seating area. Its many amenities allow guests to do more than just satiate their hunger. The stunning décor transports diners to beautiful India, with its palette of rich reds and cosy creams, while striking Eastern murals adorn the walls. Owner Imre and his team make a notable impression on their customers by offering top-rate hospitality and a comfortable ambience.

Serving authentic Indian food, guests can expect a wide array of dishes ranging from sizzling and spicy to mild and creamy. Their creative menu adds a personal touch by taking inspiration from the different regional backgrounds of each of the chefs. Okra uses seasonally sourced ingredients and a large selection or herbs and spices to construct a unique and exciting tasting experience with every dish. To sample the very best of the restaurant, opt for the Chicken Tikka Shashlik served with Pilau rice, nan, curry sauce and salad; or the Okra Spring Lamb cooked in the traditional method with a hint of garlic and ginger.

The best part about Okra is you get high-quality food with a first-class service for a very reasonable price! Staff really take care of their customers and strive to provide a personalised dining experience to all. So the next time you fancy authentic Indian cuisine, make Okra on Friar Gate your next stop.
