A word from Curry Mahal
If practise makes perfect, then the curries at Curry Mahal deserve an A+. Located on the Station Road in Sidcup, Curry Mahal restaurant has been serving up superb Indian cuisine since 1968, and the recently refurbished dining room is always popular with regulars and local curry connoisseurs. With its contemporary décor, stylish artworks and buzzy atmosphere, Curry Mahal is family-friendly and has a menu to please even the fussiest food lovers. We highly recommend the Mysore Chilli Chicken – lightly buttered chicken cubes tossed with green chillies and yoghurt; the Tamarind Duck served with fresh spinach leaves; and the Birballi Lamb Chops marinated with fresh herbs and barbecued in the tandoori oven with pilau rice.

Diner Reviews
  • "This is probably the best Indian Restaurant in Sidcup. Went on Satursday with friends. As usual the service 1st class, food wonderful and ambiance perfect. Cant fault this establishment, which we patronise with regularity. Well done Curry Mahal!!!"

  • "Origionally we were placed on a tiny table near the back of the restaurant and felt that this was because we were new comers to this Restaurant,it appeared regulars were favoured but I suppose that is natural however the manager must have sensed our mood,or read our expressions as he moved us onto a bigger table without being asked when there was a free table.We then had a very pleasant evening with the manager being very attentive ensuring we were happy with our meal as did all the waiters.The decor is easy on the eye and promotes a restful ambient environment and the food is colourful,very fresh and tasty.."

  • "I walked by and was impressed by the menu when I was opassing during a course in Sidcup. Managed to book a birthday lunch for the family birthday with 3 generations all catered for. Not many Indian restaurants are open for lunch and when they are this good they are well worth the effort."

  • "A good clean restaurant, with welcoming staff, excellent service and ambience. Food was very well cooked, and tasty and fresh, not some of the reheated meals you get in other Indian Restaurants. Great selection of Indian cuisine - as well as the normal curries - all reasonably priced. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal."

  • "This is not a 'curry house', this is an Indian Restaurant. The food is imaginative, out of the ruts and cooked to perfection. Eqaully suitable for entertaining clients, wooing a lover or satisfying a craving for authentic Indian food, Curry Mahal is sure to please."

  • "good restaurant, we go regularly. Very busy with a large group last Friday, and service was a bit erratic. Still an enjoyable evening though."
    dined on 01/03/2013
  • "2nd visit here and the food is fantastic! There is a really good, wide choice of dishes on the menu and some very unusual ones as well. Our waiter was extremely helpful in helping me decide what level of spice I wanted on my lamb shank and he got it spot on. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for a different curry experience. My only criticism was that the restaurant was a little cold so I had to keep my scarf on during the meal but it was quiet (Wednesday evening in mid February) so guess this wouldn't be the case if the restaurant was full."

  • "I visited this restaurant during the cold spell in January 2013 at lunch time. The restaurant was so cold that we had to leave before the main course. Not only that, but the staff were testing the fire alarms all the time we were there - the staff didn't seem to know how to switch it off. We complained of the cold but they said it was because it was cold outside and they couldn't make it any warmer. They didn't even offer a fan heater. We did however ask for the food to be packed to take out. The food itself was good. The restaurant looked pleasant, but was like being in a fridge."
    dined on 17/01/2013
  • "I knew that the food was going to be good when we walked in at 7.30 to a packed out restaurant. The service was attentive and happy. Unfortunately my main course, duck shashlik was hotter than I expected it to be. My husband had the King prawn puree to start and he said it was the best he's ever had. I will definitely be going back for the sea bass which came highly recommended by our neighbouring table."

  • "Service was very good, food was good. Would definitely go here again"

  • "Booked Curry Mahal for a group "business" meeting on a Monday night. Greeting was very welcoming and table looked very nice. We had to wait for some late arrivals but this did not upset the staff. Once everyone had arrived we ordered from the extensive menu which contained all the usual classics but also a very good selection of dishes that I hadn't seen before. Most of us tried one of these unusual dishes and all were very good indeed. It makes a pleasant change to have dishes that actually taste different and I will definitely be going back. It is only round the corner from my office and I will be using it for business lunches going forward. Great food and service and would recommend to anyone."

  • "We are regular diners at Curry Mahal and they never fail to disappoint. Service is always excellent and they cook the best curry around. We have dined at Benares in Mayfair, in the past and although Curry Mahal may not have the same postcode and maybe lacks a some of its ambience, I enjoy their curry just as much and without the price tag. Great for takeaway too."
    dined on 23/11/2012
  • "Curry Mahal is probably our favourite local restaurant. The amazing variety of dishes, the quality of the meat - the lamb is exceptional - would be enough to keep us visiting but the wonderful friendliness of the staff - nothing is too much trouble - is an added bonus."

  • "We are regulars at Curry Mahal in Sidcup and it's always a great experience. I think dinner there on Friday night was, for me, slightly disappointing but that was just my selection. Ordered from the Tandoori Oven Dishes the tender venison but alas, although beatitifully flamed with brandy and served, it was not tender at all, rather tough in fact. It was a shame but won't put us off returning. Have to say it was extremely noisy in there but again, as already said, it was Friday and the restaurant was full."

  • "Six friends re-visited Curry Mahal in Sidcup on Saturday night – and it was superb. It has to be the best Indian restaurant for miles – a real little gem. We all thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the buzzy atmosphere. The service is fast and friendly, and it was excellent value for money. A great night."
    dined on 17/03/2012
  • "Curry Mahal Sidcup, is a very nice restaurant and this is my third visit in the past 12 months. The food is always very tasty, the prawn starter is a treat and would definitely recommend that you make the effort to begin your experience with that. Sizeable portions and good choice of dishes. No 241 offers but busy even at 7.30 and full by the time we left on Saturday night. Save up as not cheap, but guess in the end you get what you pay for!"

  • "A friend and I ate at the Curry Mahal, Sidcup last night and were totally impressed by the food and decor. It is decorated in a contemporary way with mood lighting and there were a few romantic couples enjoying the ambiance, not your typical Indian decor at all. The service was good but unobtrusive although I did have to keep topping my own wine glass up. There were some unusual dishes as well as the 'normal' Indian dishes and her food was amazing. Definitely we will go again."
