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!
Love this restaurant. It's always a firm favourite for a family meal out. The food is always exceptional and the staff always friendly and helpful. The takeaways are always to the same standards. Would highly recommend
Very lovely food. Had the butter chicken makhani, was to die for. Staff also lovely. Bit on the pricey side but you do get what you pay for as it’s quality food and a lovely venue.
Always use this Indian restaurant when visiting Derby. The food and drink menus are comprehensive and the decor and layout of the restaurant comforting. The food and service are first class and would unreservedly recommend.
