  • Well I can't fault them for the speed, and the delivery lady was really nice so props to her. The reason for the one star rating is mainly due to our order being wrong, we ordered a lamb korma and a butter chicken with two naan one garlic and one normal. For starters both naan were the plain, normally that would be fine if it wasn't for the main meals being wrong also. At first glace the meals looked exactly the same, I didn't want to open them just incase we'd got someone elses order and I promptly called up to verify, I explained that the meals looked identical and was told that their butter chicken "looked different to others" and was instructed to taste it. I opened the 'butter chicken' to find chicken in there also mixed with lamb, again to which I was assured that the lady I was speaking to had tried it earlier and that they have a different style of butter chicken also that it was the end of the night and the colour can apparently change. I was at first content with that explanation although the woman on the phone was quite rude, pushy and had a very defensive tone, almost like she knew what was up. Well i've had enough indian food in my time and I can tell you i've never seen brown butter chicken, it also tasted identical to the korma with the same bits of lamb in it. I'd say they'd run out of butter chicken being the end of a saturday night, couldn't be bothered cooking more so they just put chicken in the korma and called it a day.

    I normally wouldn't complain, but it just tasted wrong and it certainly wasn't what I ordered. That, coupled with the rude lady who couldn't wait to hang up on me gave me a real bitter taste in my mouth. We won't be ordering from here again, especially if the way they like to do business is assuming their customers are idiots. If they'd just called and said "we've run out of butter chicken, would you like something else?" then yeah that would've been fine.

  • I was unhappy for a few reasons: the food was to come at 6:30 and arrived at about 6:10, there was a dish missing and when I rang the girl I spoke to, while very apologetic and pleasant, could only offer to have extra dished delivered asap with no estimate of when, said she could not give credit but to mention the missing dish on next order to get a replacement, if I required a refund I had to contact "eat now". Food was not at Nara Thai's usual standard either. The food usually is awesome. I will go back based on what I have received before not on last night.

  • Food was fantastic! We had spring rolls, massaman curry and pad thai. We greatly enjoyed them all. Still hot on arrival and delicious.
    However ordered on a Saturday evening at 5:30pm and had 6:30pm delivery confirmed. We received a call at 6:30pm to say this is a popular time and our meal would be arriving 20-30 minutes late. Food arrived a bit after 7pm. Good feed though!

  • I received a text at 6:13pm to confirm our order with an expected delivery time of 7:15pm which I could understand being mothers day. At 7:30pm, I phoned the restaurant to find out how far away our delivery was only to be told sorry it's just being cooked now because we are busier than we expected and don't have enough people in the kitchen. I asked for a new expected delivery time and couldn't be given one. I then rang back at 8:40pm and spoke to a different lady (who gave the same story) and promised she would ring me straight back (I'm still waiting for promised phone call) our food was delivery at approx 9pm. Lucky we decided to feed our kids after the first phone call as they were also by the time dinner arrived.

(Note: ITS MOTHERS DAY!!!!!). It is now 8:10pm and STILL HAVENT RECEIVED ORDER!! My 6yr olds bed time is 8pm and still not fed. Not even close to good enough. Not even a phone call to discuss order ! Pathetic.

  • I'm not one to normally complain but this particular night was dreadful, Pappadums were yesterday's so stale and soft, butter chicken was far from what it should normally taste like and lamb korma was chewy. Very disappointed! I hope others have a better experience but I won't be returning.

  • This restaurant has definitely stepped up its game. We haven't ordered from Nara for a couple of years due to new owners taking over and a lowering of the standard of food and delivery. Well, we were very pleasantly surprised by the party in our mouths from dishes ordered from the Thai and Indian menus. Charlestown has a new benchmark for Thai and Indian. 15/10,

  • Speed: 5 stars. Delivered on time.
    Value: 5 stars. Well priced, plenty of food and included complimentary Chinese prawn chips.
    Flavour: 4 stars. The curries were quite fragrant, however the adults in our family would have liked the Korma that we ordered to be spicier. I'd consider using the Comments form to request this in the future.

  • Absolutely useless lazy individuals (to be polite) who had the "decency" to send me a text on their closing time to say the couldn't deliver an order that had been placed at least half an hour before, and they turned off the phone they used to send the text. Could not say what I want to say without violating the conditions of leaving a review.

After tonight's meal I will not be ordering mussaman beef again as tasted like microwaved and watery - even still had cling wrap on top of container and lukewarm.
