The Derby branch of Viceroy is quite simply a very beautiful place to sit and enjoy Indian food. Asian artworks combined with contemporary decor that isn’t trying too hard is what you can expect, as well as a menu that’s well put together and dishes that are prepared with love by chefs who know the Indian kitchen better than most. The extensive menu boasts all the classics you know and love with plenty or meat, seafood and vegetarian options, alongside specialty signature dishes that are well worth a look. You’ll find Derby’s Viceroy right in the centre on Midland Road just down the road from Derby train station, is essential dining if quality Indian food is what your heart and your gut desire. Bookings are recommended here however, as this stylish restaurant in Castleward is certainly popular with local foodies in the know, and tends to fill up quickly.
As we mentioned, Viceroy Derby is a bit of a local favourite and once you step inside this relaxing Indian restaurant you’ll soon understand why. If you’re a fan of dishes from the tandoor clay oven, then we recommend you keep an eye out for the chandani malai tikka cooked with tender chicken marinated in cream, cheese and spices, or the king prawn merunisha cooked with caraway seeds, saffron and fresh coriander. Or, order up a serve of Viceroy’s aloo tikki potatoes that are stuffed with spiced dates, ginger and chestnuts and topped with mint and tamarind chutney and prepare for your taste buds to be blow away by this Castleward haven.
If you’re a little more adventurous in the spice department, then Viceroy’s desi menu is well worth a gander. This part of the menu focuses on homestyle dishes, just like mum used to make – to quote the team – and you’ll find spicy cod, garlic tikka and desi-style kofta loaded with flavours. With plenty more besides, including favourites such as korma, bhuna, rogan josh and vindaloo, Viceroy Derby truly has something to satisfy everyone. You’ll find this Indian hotspot on Midland Road in Casteward – just be sure to bring your appetite!
Great neal. It is fine dining so you pay a little premium but this is around £6 extra per person which is totally worth it because the food is brilliant.
Food and service awesome as always. Staff very attentative. Even though (due to ill health a year ago) we haven’t been for quite some time. Some staff members remembered us. It was very nice to be greeted with “Hi. A long time since we’ve seen you, hope you’re alright”. Love the place and the people 😊😊
Great curry and good service. Great variety of dishes, normal selection and then a number of chefs specials. An enjoyable meal out good for groups and couples
Service was great, food was fantastic and atmosphere was brilliant. I can't praise it enough. The best restaurant in Derby for Asian cuisine. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody.
This is not your everyday curry house. Fantastic food with a large choice on the menu, with some very different options. Great service from staff dressed in beautiful outfits and a buzzy but not overly loud atmosphere. Not cheap but worth every penny.
if you like your Indian food well flavoured and with plenty of nice spices to tickle ya tongue then viceroy is a perfect place to dine, staff is very welcoming also see ya again soon.
Fantastic meal here again at Viceroy. Excellent choice, friendly atmosphere and delicious food. All for a reasonable price! Will definitely be returning here with friends and family. Keep up the good work!
The food was lovely , it was spoilt by the staff rushing round the whole time we were eating . Even knocking into one of our chairs several times with no apologies, it made us feel like we needed to hurry our food and get out .
Nice ambience good food. Awesome service. Would recommend and will certainly visit again in my next trip to Derby. Worth a try. The banquet concept is new for me
we visited the viceroy at the weekend, been a few times before and each time we love it. Fab food, great service, definitely best Indian we have been to
