A decent curry, but I do not think it matches the price. It is expensive for a curry you could get in many other curry houses across the UK - nothing really stands out. They also add a 10% service charge which I also do not like the concept of. I don’t mind tipping but don’t like being told how much to tip.

The toilets had a putrid smell and they water down the hand soap which is quite cheap of them.

Overall would not return due to overly prices dishes.

Good food, attentive service. A bit far from Maidenhead town center. I would come back if in the area again next time.

Dinner for 2.
Excellent pappadums and chutneys.
I had 2.

Lamb chops - tasty and tender. Well charred but only on the fat.
Meat very good.

Butter chicken, king prawn, mushroom rice and aloo - all good and excellent fast service.

Prices not the cheapest - but I was happy to pay.

One of the best around.

I have visited Indian more times than I can count and the biggest difference is that the bread in India is at a whole other level of freshness. The Emperor is my favourite local Indian as the roti is thin, crisp and fresh as it should be. The dishes have the right amount of fat, not greasy, but spicey, tasty and fresh. This place is excellent on all the above at a price a little above a take-away but so worth it. Staff are great, friendly and welcoming.
Highly recommended.
