Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our experience of this restaurant was not good, and we will be returning not eat there again in future. All of the food, starters and main courses, was very bland, lacking the depth and any richness of flavour that would normally be associated with this...type of food. We were a group of 3 and each ordered something different. All disappointed. The garlic naan did not have any garlic flavour. When we queried this it was just brushed off by the staff and we were stiill charged extra , despite asking for the additional charge to be removed as we werent happy. All in all disappointing and underwhelming.More

Unfortunately me or the other half weren’t impressed on our visit. The service was unprofessional. Staff didn’t seem to know what they were doing. Asked 3 times for a jug of water. Had to ask 3 times for the bill. The food also wasn’t up...to scratch. The lamb was completely over cooked and quite frankly inedible. The decor is dated. The menus look like that of a takeaway. Wouldn’t come back here again.More

In my review about our meal on 27th Oct I said the Elvis meal which it seemed we had to have was £29.95 not £25.95 which is one of the reasons we thought the evening unpleasant and poor value.

I’ve been here three times now with my partner or with partner and my family and none of us have ever had a bad meal. The food is always good portion size and good quality. There is a lot of choice in the menu with...the ‘traditional’ options like bhuna and vindaloo along with lots of other interesting mains. It’s always busy, you must book in advance if you want to guarantee a table, and sometimes it’s a bit loud when it’s full. The staff are very friendly and very efficient. I always feel like we’re being looked after properly. It’s the best Indian to eat in in the area and I’ll definitely be coming back.More

Ordered lamb biryani, flavours ok however approximately 70% of the meat was clearly beef and not lamb, there is nothing wrong with beef but if you advertise and charge for lamb then that is what you have to provide. Waiters were adamant that it was...lamb but I can tell the difference, they are a completely different texture. This is a common practice with asian restaurants to maximise profits as beef is cheaper than lamb, it is a fraudulent way to conduct business and is taking the paying customer for a mug.More

Took some of the Family, out for a Birthday meal; the food was exquisite, the waiters are adept at their profession, the Atmosphere was delectable until some loud Customers came In and ruined the ambiance. We would recommend the Restaurant to other prospective Customers, but...we would advise you to book an earlier table If you want a quite and relaxing evening.More

Not been here for at least 5 years (possibly longer) and loved it then, so we wanted to see how it faired now. Went again last night and wasn't disappointed and just as good. Excellent curries, naan bread etc. Perfectly cooked, plenty of flavour, right...level of spice etc. Also attentive waiters, nice relaxed atmosphere, comfortable seating, very clean toilets, reasonably priced. Just a great place to eat in Sale.More
