Has anyone eaten here recently?
Planning a birthday meal and the location and parking are perfect!
But what is the food, service etc like?

Yeah or you could ask the locals on the local forum. No wait don't do that, they're not all friendly. I'm sorry never tried it, Chaula's is just so good I don't go anywhere else now.

You twat, this is a local forum! people ask for responses and opinions from local people, that's what they value.
They are most likely quite intelligent and probably realise that going to somewhere like Checkatrade will only get them tradesmen who have paid to be on Checkatrade and realise that's not a 100% reliable answer.
So they are asking locals for their feedback and I know it works as all the services I have got recommendations from on here have been absolutely superb.
Colin Poulter is a perfect example.

Hi Hungry Pete
I live just down the road from there (the old Chalk Pit) and all though I do go there, it isn't brilliant Indian food - it's just the closest to me. As dishes I haven't had a curry from there which had any depth of flavour but I get chicken tikka and a naan bread which is not bad at all.
If it's for a birthday and other people are going I would make the trip a little further out to Newick Tandoori which is much better. Hope this helps.

Hello. I'm with Offham Rascal.. I go because it's local but if I had the option then Newick, Ringmer (Ganges) or Chaulas would be preferable. Nothing wrong with curry cottage but nothing outstanding either.

What the other two said - the food is good but not particularly special or authentic... but then I used to live in Bradford so maybe I've been spoilt

As above, food is ok but nothing special. You do get lots of it when you have a takeaway and it's pretty cheap.

I had a Vindaloo up there Fridee, it was really hot and it hurt the other end too. Not to mention the fact i soiled the bed sheets.

Just checked Trip advisor for you on the whole seems to have pretty good reviews.

Anecdotally CC is a bit patchy. Newick Tandoori, avoid. Ganges, excellent for takeaway, lacks atmosphere. Shanaz, ok. Spice world,pricey but good. Chaulas, most authentic. Happy Birthday Pete!

Chaulas is great. Shanaz I occasionally use for take-aways and is more "generic". Bit further out, Planet India in Brighton, (and I think they opened one now in Hove) is also superb.
