We visited Curry Pot for our anniversary and it was seriously the best Indian food I've ever had. Everything was so fresh and well priced. Friendly service and a nice atmosphere. I ordered the tandoori mushrooms to start and they were divine! Heaps of vegetarian options too. The naan bread was crispy and fresh and the curry main I had... More

I go here regularly with my work mates for lunch. We have never been disappointed. Always good value for money. We each normally order a curry and naan.

Visited the Curry Pot for a family birthday dinner. The food was excellent, packed with flavour and the waitstaff were attentive. We found the music might have been a tad too loud, but otherwise a wonderful meal. Well worth a visit if your after a good curry.

I've eaten here on several occasions and enjoyed it. However the owner of Curry Pot was today convicted of charging an employee $14,000 for a job, and witholding $31,000 in wages.

Good variety of curries and not too expensive, shop and restaurants are clean and inviting, cooked whilst you wait, but best to phone in your order and go to pick up later,

Take away, all very 'meat in hot gravy' type of meal. Breads were foil wrapped tough, chewy. Strange Indian Restaurant which offers a mild vindaloo or a hot korma... must be a New Zealand thing like butter chicken...

Grabbed a take away while the family were away. Although tasty it was over priced. I ordered a prawn dish and I only got 6 prawns. I won't be back.

We live in Lincoln so we were reasonably regular customers for take aways, but this is obviously not on their list of values. One night the onion bhajis and the naan bread were inedible (burnt, almost cremated) so we called and the manager offered to give these free with our next order. When we ordered again, the manager had left... More

I was in Lincoln for a week on business and had the pleasure of dining at the Curry Pot twice. I was pleasantly surprised to get a full free meal on my birthday - so well done the Curry Pot! The portions are sizeable and very delightful. I would certainly recommend an evening meal here if you are ever in... More

I actually live in Lincoln and although this is the only place in the whole town where you can buy proper Indian food, it definitely sets the standard high. It is a quiet little place that is perfect for dates, or taking your partner out if you want to dine in somewhere. I normally get take-out which so far has... More
