2016-12-16 (Fri) 19:30 family party of 6 - 23rd birthday Excellent party venue... many party groups tonight... a little noisy/raucous as a result, but not unexpected just a week before Christmas. Great food, great service, great venue... 6 happy eaters, plus a special birthday cake/sparkler-candler for the birthday girl. ONLY let-down was the SMOG on exit... having to "run the... More

Often perceived as one of the best Indian restaurants in Mid Sussex, this place is always busy, especially at weekends. There isn't loads of parking so sometimes you have to sacrifice your car keys to the staff who will re-arrange the cars in the car park throughout the evening. Varied menu and food that doesn't disappoint. Super sauce selection with... More

We are a group of friends that use Tarana for our annual meet up. Service in the U.K. is seldom great outside of a five star establishment; however this isn't the case at Tarana. They are warm, welcoming and inviting and seem happy to cater to every need. The atmosphere is always vibrant but not noisy. The food is good,... More

Great Indian restaurant with fantastic food and service. We go very often as we really love this place, but we try to avoid Wednesday night, because we're not big fans of their belly dancing show. Atmosphere on other nights is much better.

After a dreadful experience at the Coaching Halt in Crawley we found this excellent restaurant on the advice of a local Taxi driver and excellent advice it was. The meal was excellent, all 7 of us having different dishes and agreeing they were fantastic. The Manager was a perfect host, looking after us in every way and even keeping the... More

Three families visited on a Sunday evening at 5pm for the buffet before Glow Wild at Wakehurst. Food was good. There was a fair selection, although the kids in the party were sad there was no chicken tikka masala on offer! Service was pretty good, if not a little slow at times, and we all enjoyed ourselves. Good value.

Having heard many good things about the Buffett at Tarana myself, my wife, my son and some friends thought we would try it out, staff were friendly but our waiter failed to explain on two separate occasions that we couldn't just go up and help ourselves, we had to first wait for the popadoms and then finish our two piece...

we went to Tarana for my wife's birthday. The food as always was superb and the staff efficient and friendly. After we had finished our meal the restaurant staff brought out a chocolate birthday cake with firework attached and they and the other guests sang "Happy Birthday" to her which was lovely and completely unexpected. The manager came and talked... More

A warm welcome and a vibrant atmosphere set up a very nice evening. An extensive and original menu provided a good choice of vegetarian dishes, important for our family. The food was excellent; fresh and extremely tasty. I would highly recommend Tarana, particularly for special occasions as it is very spacious. Will be going back soon!
