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!
Best quality food Ive ever eaten in an Indian restaurant. The service and quality was exceptional. I’ll be going back in the future without any doubts
The food is beautiful and the range is fantastic! The place is clean, well decorated and has a lovely vibe. It is a relaxing atmosphere to eat in too.
Excellent food, highly recomend the Gourmet Banquet, great selection of dishes and very good portions. We were a table of six and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, atmoshere and the high quality service, the only complaint i heard was that people had eaten too much!!!
