After reading recent reviews on Indian takeaway food for our river visit to Stalham we decided to give The Indian Essence a go instead of our usual. We moored at Sutton Staithes not Stalham but this was no problem for the delivery service provided. Courteous...on the phone and on time delivery, kept in comms via phone prior to despatch with beautiful manners. The curries were hot, gorgeous rice and the best takeaway naan breads ever experienced. Thank you.More

This was a very welcome treat. Fresh non greasy food, great service, friendly staff, reasonable prices. Had a chicken tikka biryani, aubergine curry, saag paneer and chapati. Delicious, healthy, fresh, could not have asked for better.

Best tarka daal I've had in ages, kulcha nan was beautiful, as was the rest of the order. Good service too, I can thoroughly recommend and will return.

We arrived for a weekend break and as it was getting late decided a take away would be perfect. After a search we decided to order from here as the reviews were so good. Well what a gem this place is! Food was yummy and...really reasonably priced. Couldn’t’ fault anything - all freshly cooked and the online ordering was really easy. Well worth a try. Friendly staff and great service.More

Staying close to Stalham we thought we would try the local Indian takeaway. We weren’t disappointed! If you like something spicy try the kadhai - this was excellent, as was the whole meal, especially the stuffed kulcha naan which was packed full with finely mashed...vegetables. As someone who has always really enjoyed indian food I would definitely recommend this placeMore

On holiday in Norfolk and a lot of takeaways don't deliver to holiday homes but glad to say that The Indian Essence does. Ordering online was easy. Although the menu isn't huge, it's a great example of 'less is more' - many standard dishes which...you'd expect from an indian restaurant and a handful of chef's specials. Everything we had was cooked well and tasted great. Portion sizes are just right or probably a little too much (depending on how hungry you are!) This was easily the best Indian takeaway we have had for many years and we will go back again (maybe even before the end of this holiday).More

The Indian meals are really authentic and certainly keep me coming back for more. Try the Chicken Biryani packed full of flavour. The Tandoori Chicken, Lamb Roganjosh, chapatis and Naans all made to order and are just too delicious for words. We have got a...real gem in our village of Stalham. Order your favourite and try, I know you will be amazed and like me will be ordering again and again.More

Wow....wow ! Simply sensational food and excellent service. Having eaten Indian food for well over 50 years on a very regular basis I can honestly say that the takeaway I had on Thursday (12/3) has to be in the top three best Indian meals ever...and that includes the many Asian countries visited. Absolutely superb & very highly recommended. I will be coming back soon. RobMore
