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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Staff were wonderful and attentive, especially Ray, who was like 'a drop of golden sun!' So friendly....The food was the best we have tasted and plenty of it. Had to even take a doggy bag home! Can't wait to go back again! Would highly recommend. Thank you!More

As a party of 4 we visited on a cold Thursday in Feb. The restaurant had a few tables occupied which was a good sign. All 4 of us said our curry and all accompanying sides were absolutely lovely. And we thought that the chicken...tikka meat was super tasty and not overcooked, really succulent. The service and atmosphere was very good and prices were similar to anywhere else in the region offering this style of cuisine. One Happy family that will return in the near future. Thanks to all the staff.More

Passing through for the night and found this wonderful gem of a restaurant! The service was really good and my food arrived very quickly. Delicious flavours and the meat was so tender and moist. Absolute pleasure. I eat in Indian restaurants across the south of...England and this is up there with the best of them. Would recommend to anyone in the area!More

Went here as my grandson and daughter knows the owners for my 55th birthday meal. I can honestly say that it’s the best curry I’ve ever had and I’ve ate in so many curry houses in my life. All of our party (10) said it...was amazing and the chicken in all our dishes was so good it was beyond belief. It’s about a 20 minute drive from out place but this will be out new regular. Amazing staff and the owners are such lovely people. Meals that I’ve never heard of (that I will try) looked amazing. So tasty and worth the trip out to Cricklade.More

The wife and I love our Indian food, where ever we go we normally end up with an Indian meal at some point. This has to be added to the top 5 best we have ever been to and we have been to some very...high end places that can't compete with this place. Couldn't fault anything.More

We were sad when The Ancient Raj closed but delighted with Kavali. The menu has a range of new dishes and your typical choices too. We chose Pran and Shirab specials. They were beautiful. We cannot wait to return.

Came here with my Grandparents, the service was impeccable. Staff are friendly and want to ensure you have the best experience. We had great starters and three amazing mains. The Goan Sea Bass is a phenomenon. Would recommend this establishment to all.

Decided last minute with my son to go for a curry. Not been here before and have to say it was very nice. Service was casual which I like as I hate people fussing and the food was very tasty
