I hope they make a decent job of the outside of the building. It's looked like a dump for years.
It formerly wasn't much different outside from when it was the Station Cafe owned by Mr & Mrs Gort in the 1960s. I had a Sunday job there when I was in 6th form at the princely salary of £1 - I saved it up for the text book fund for college.

I have to say that the new external refurb isn't exactly the height of elegance. Once a little wooden hut, always a little wooden hut.

Still we'll give it the food a try.
Don't look for the light at the end of the tunnel -  stomp along there and turn the bl**dy thing on yourself!

Went there tonight with Mrs sgk, just for a takeaway. 

Would have been nice to get the chana rice that we ordered rather than lemon rice (why in the world would you have Lemon Rice with a curry?) but food jolly good otherwise. 

Some odd items on the menu, Chocolate Korma, Karahi Kid, Helicopter Naan.  ??? ??? ???




Lemon rice with Indian food - yum!

Ordered a take away the other night.....
The food was nice but nothing special which was a great shame especially after all the hype.
Will not be ordering a take away from them again as there are other places in Marple which I feel are better on quality, price, taste and they also do home delivery.

We will however try having a meal there as it does look really nice inside.

We went last night and sat in .   We had mixed feelings about it . 

It was far more informal than the basmati  , lots of tables crammed in .

The service wasnt bad, got shown to our table quickly, had a drinks order taken straight away, but then waited quite a while for the main order to be taken  ( to be fair the place was very very busy ) , but food arrived quickly after order had been taken .

Mixed starter for two,  was lovely and fresh, and hot, we enjoyed it .

Nan bread, lovely and light and not stodgy at all .

There were four of us, and we decided to share two main meals , tandori lamb chops and Chicken rogan Josh ,  chops were apparently delicious  ,  and the rogan josh was very spicey but very nice :) , not massive portions, so bear this in mind when sharing .

The interior is a massive improvement on the basmati, but the famous bubble wall is wasted on the back wall,  you only get the atmosphere of it , if you are sat next to it .

If you want a nice meal to chill out with and have a chat, forget the second part, it was so noisy, you could hardly hear yourself speak , I love somewhere busy and lively, but I dont like it when you cant hear what the person opposite  is saying without shouting .



overall opinion,  nice food , but I still prefer the Blue Nile at Hazel grove, and I didnt think I would think that but I do .

Had a takeaway the other night cost £40.

It was "just OK"-nothing special I did enjoy it but after the first trial I would be content with the "Empress" especialy as they deliver

-snippty snip snip!-
Helicopter naan? that sounds like a "interseting" concept.
I think the only reason why they made a mess of your order was because they had an awful lot of orders on the books. Seems like its pritty reasonably priced. Might put a order in this week!
Whats that coming over the hill? Is it a monster?
Kinda... its a monster with a towel on its head!

Outside looks ok. Not been yet, but looking forward to a review!

NO ! NO !!!  I think it's wonderful, you know EAST meets WEST And all that!    Now what could be more enjoyable than eating a curry in a RANCH, possibly one made from recycling the trees on Dan Bank what a wonderful idea and so in keeping with the nearby conservation area.  Now credit where credits due,I take my hat off (or should I say Stetson ) to all at Stockport Planning Dept
BECAUSE IT CONCERNS ME, MINE AND OTHERS !!!!!

Has anyone thought to run this by Miss Marple ?


Haha, I was quietly thinking the same thing.
