At The Ruby, we’ve been serving up our signature dishes since our opening in 2017 and we’re proud of our delicious Indian food.

Our menu has everything you could ask for in an exceptional Indian takeaway, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, as well as a broad selection of meat-based dishes for the carnivores.

While each dish is delicious, we understand everyone has their own personal tastes.

To help you pick your favourites, here are The Ruby owner Mohim’s top recommendations:

Chicken Tikka Masala

If you’re unsure where to start or you love an old favourite…

Heat Rating: Mild

The Chicken Tikka Masala is an all-time UK favourite.

It has been cooked and perfected up and down the country in hundreds of curry houses and at The Ruby we’re particularly proud of this dish.

A mild and creamy dish, we cook our deliciously tender and flavour-packed Chicken Tikka, which has been grilled to perfection in our tandoori oven, with butter, cream, coconut and our special massala sauce. It is a great choice to start with if you’re unsure which of our dishes will suit you best.

With over 15 ingredients we have added our own Ruby twist to the secret Massala sauce recipe, giving The Ruby Chicken Tikka Massala a unique and delicious sweet and tangy flavour. It’s not a spicy dish, with light spices providing a mild and creamy taste. It’s great with Peshwari naan, coconut rice or even plain pilau rice.

Mohim says…

There’s a reason our Chicken Tikka Massala is on the top of our list of Signature dishes, not only because it’s most peoples number one most popular choice, but also because it’s our number one favourite dish to make for our customers. We have experimented over many years to perfect our recipe, and we believe we have put together the most tasty Chicken Tikka Massala recipe you will find anywhere locally!

Our happy customers say:

“Lovely hot food, prompt delivery on a Saturday, would highly recommend the Chicken Tikka. Had a few from here now, very good!!”
