About Duchess Of Delhi

Cardiff’s seekers of spice and exoticism when it comes to food know that, historically and in contemporary times, Butetown and Cardiff Bay are the precincts to explore. While Indian cuisine with roots in the Mughal Empire is the forte at this new and elegant restaurant on Bute Crescent, you can expect a menu packed with dishes exemplifying Nepalese, Thai, Singaporean, Malaysian, Burmese, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi traditions, too, with a menu showcasing over 80 creations. The restaurant is split over two levels of a listed building in what’s known, due to its strong multicultural history, as the Tiger Bay area, with the upstairs Nawab Lounge ideal for private hire. Just a short walk from Cardiff Bay station and smack-bang in the middle of the city’s dockland and Century Wharf redevelopment, Duchess of Delhi is destined to become a star of the spicier side of Cardiff’s burgeoning restaurant scene.

Absolutely loved this place. Conveniently located if you are staying in the Bay. Lovely shared starter plate and a real variety of things on the menu that made it so difficult to pick. We solved this by going again the next night!

Food rating is 6. Overall rating is 4. Let own from being overall 6 by 2 things. 1. Because it wasn't 'busy' we had to eat in the bar, nothing like the pictures on website, which is what we used to pick restaurant. We wanted an Indian restaurant and got an Indian bar meal. Did have a look upstairs, where the restaurant is, and it looked lovely, shame we didn't eat there. We were told only really 'busy' enough at weekends to open restaurant upstairs. 2. We arrived same time as a large table of about a dozen. We were certainly not their priority and it felt a little like it!

Another superb meal. Had the vegetarian trio special starter - an exquisite mixture of textures and taste. Mains were King prawns in a Tandoori Jhinga Samarkand - Grilled king prawns scented with ground pomegranate and spices coated with sweet Thai chili sauce. Served with seafood rice and fish curry sauce. Fish curry sauce was to die for -YUM! Prawns cooked to perfection . Need to go back soon for another fix.

Took my wife for a birthday meal. Great friendly service, great atmosphere and great food. We both love South Asian cuisine and opted for the Papadoms and Chutney tomaccpmpany our shared starter of the meat trio followed by our mains of Indonesian Massaman Curry and Myanmar Chet Tha Curry. As usual, we were not disappointed. Thank you all at the Duchess.

The food here is always lovely, and they have a good variety of different curries from India, Malaysia and Indonesia. We had a seafood trio to share as a starter and lamb tikka and a prawn and mango curry for mains which was fab. Staff are always friendly.

The restaurant was very clean and the staff welcoming and professional. The food was well presented and very tasty as expected. Although initially quiet for our 7.30 reservation the restaurant quickly filled out but the additional customers did not make the noise levels particularly noticeable.
