My colleagues and I eat out three nights a week in Northampton because we work here away from home. We usually have pleasant experiences wherever we visit and the staff know and welcome us. We decided to try out Merlins Tandoori. What a mistake!! We had to dial 999 and call the cops because the staff got aggressive. Here's the... More

Regular visitors to this restaurant over the last 10 years, the menu could do with some specials to give a bit of variation but otherwise the food is of high standard and it is great to go to a restaurant where the family run business means that you get to know the staff over a long period of time. Very... More

Eaten in here once and had a few takeaways, not too pricey, they charge for popodums, deserts are the standard pre bought "Penguin IceCream"... The curry is very nice, staff polite, always clean and welcoming.

My wife and I have dined at Merlins for nearly 30 years. The food is fabulous and is consistently of very high quality. The restaurant is a credit to the owner Nor and his sons who are always so welcoming and the general atmosphere is delightful. In my opinion, the best restaurant of its kind anywhere!!

Love this restaurant. Staff are so friendly and have always been so welcoming. Been coming here for 13 years and now our toddlers also join us and get excited when they know we are going there. Great food. And if there isn't anything your not sure/ fancy on the menu, then they will recommend a dish for you or even... More

The best curry for miles around. Just good food and friendly service. Have been for family meals and as a couple. Always made to feel welcome, and dishes always perfectly cooked. I often have a chicken tikka biriyani and other restaurants don't compare with this slightly more spicy version.

Went to Merlins with another couple in January 2016. The service is always 2nd to none and the food is always excellent. Large portions , hot and fresh. I always have lamb and some places disappoint but not Merlins , the lamb was very tender and extremely tasty. I used to live down Wellingborough Road so have tried all of... More
