A modern twist on a traditional Tandoori, you will still find all of your old favourites here, but those feeling more adventurous can indulge in a whole range of slightly crazy options, from the Iron-bruna, an onion based curry with a touch of coriander and tomato infused with Irn Bru – a Scottish take on an old Indian classic – to the chocolate massallam infused with chocolate and vanilla.

Great for a Stag do, food was great and service great. The stag got the killer curry which is brought out by a guy with a gas mask which is a nice touch. Had a small taste of the sauce and it's definitely powerful.

It all began when I was perusing through Groupon trying to find a tasty deal for my friend and I to enjoy during a midweek excursion, after searching for what seemed like ten minutes I came across a two for one deal for the Killer Restaurants curry buf-fett. Now I'm no fool and I never pass up a good deal when I see one, so I jumped at the offer. The night was soggy, as were my feet, but this didn't deter my friend and myself from venturing out to try this buf-fett. We arrived and were greeted with some confusion as they staff seemed baffled that we had booked online and had a Groupon. This confusion didn't last long and to be honest I don't know why I'm mentioning it now. We were offer a table, by the window, and given fresh clean glasses and a bottle opener for our beer. Oh! Did I mention that it was BYOB and with no corkage charge? Well it was! After we settled in we headed up to the buf-fett station to survey the food on offer. The selection was suitable for our needs, had our needs been hot curry dishes filled with potato. Take this as your word of warning that if you don't enjoy potatoes in your curry then don't bother with this buf-fett. That being said I thought it was delightful. There were around 5 to 6 starters on offer, and 4 to 5 mains. The highlight of the evening was the puffed bread, and in this reviewers opinion it's a contender to replace nann bread. I went in with the intension of eating until I exploded and that dream was achieved, and after only two plates. Beers were drank, food was consumed, the night was a success. In short: the staff were friendly, the food was potatoy (but tasty), the atmosphere was enjoyable (which reminds me! Two tables behind me I could overhear a group discussing the Marvel movies, and in great detail. Talk about obnoxious! If only these types of folks and their conversions could be banned much like the way smoking in bars had been banned.) Visit if only to try once, and don't forget to tip! Two thumbs up...

We went to the restaurant part of the Killer Curry House. This place was really good. There was no corkage which is definitely a benefit and because we booked online we got 10% off our total bill. The staff were friendly and the service was very quick. The food was really good and they had decent portion sizes. I would definitely come back here again

The food is authentic, tasty and the portions are generous. I am often not a fan of Indian, as it can be formulaic (meat quickly cooked and a bought sauce applied) but the slow cooked dishes were a revelation. Likewise, everything from the tandoor was tasty and succulent. Highly recommended.

Fine service - very decent food.........BYOB - What more could you ask for ? Try Killer restaurant - it's a better than average place to say the least.

the trays to hold food were not kept up to a reasonable level, although the staff were happy to fill if you asked them too. Also not a great selection of curry a hooter one would have been appreciated.
