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.

We have had numerous take outs and deliveries from here. We try and order something different each time. Our food has always been hot,fresh and delicious. The staff are amazing! The negative comments from the end of last year were the result of staffing problems…..I...know because I have been a driver for them. As a family….we are fanatic foodies!!!! Would we continue to use somewhere that is not up to scratch?’! Not on your Nelly. Jay and his team rock. Please don’t listen to the negativity……listen to the positivity!More

The service was exemplary, the food was absolutely delicious, not at all greasy and really fresh tasting. Portion size was decent. Wish we lived closer to come here more often.

We had a meal in the Prince of Kent last night before our visit to the Kino cinema. The meal was excellent, very good taste, lots of meat and sauce in the curry, good portions of spices with the popadoms... We were mainly served by...AJ, who had a great sense of humour, was very personable and made our visit that bit more special/enjoyable. Definitely going back to try some of the other curry offerings.More

This used to be our go too curry house for a solid 2 years Now the last two times it has been bland and neither taste of anything other than oil. When complained they do rectify and replace but its still not nice. The onion...bhaji are like onion rocks. Safe to.say we will be looking for an alternative curry house. They have a new chef and when we raised our concerns the manager said they .have heard alot that the food has gone downhill Such a shameMore

Just a quick review of this excellent Indian restaurant when I was visiting this weekend with friends. Very welcoming and a huge range of food and drink. Went for a dish I have never had before and it was fantastic. Really recommend if you are...in the area. Enjoyed by all 4 of us that attended. Thank You.More

I would not recommend this restaurant. The service was very friendly but the food was at best bland. Most dishes that we ordered were sickeningly sweet. Even the garlic naan was sweet. Another ‘feature’ of most sauces was that they were thickened by a type...of granular yogurt that the cook had not even bothered to mix in well. Given their red coating, the chicken pieces in the Kashmiri chicken and the Butter chicken were clearly reheated leftovers from Tandoori chicken. The sauce for the Kashmiri chicken was also vividly purple and it had canned lychees in it. Awful and strange. While the cook clearly likes sugar, none of the desserts are homemade. As I did not understand how this restaurant had such a high rating on Tripadvisor, I asked the waiter if their local customers want their food this sweet and was told that they do. Maybe I lived too many years in India to understand this. The restaurant was quite empty, though.More

Lovely decor, great service and superb food. I liked being given popadoms and a drink before having to give our order. Meant we could chat and look at the menu without pressure. The waiter was very friendly and helpful explaining certain dishes. The food was...delicious and beautifully served. I wish restaurants served half portions because we left a lot and we both like different heats. They did offer us to take leftovers home. The other thing I really liked was I love onion bahjis my husband hates them. They let me order just one bahji to have with my meal. It was lovely. The Peshawari naan superb. I had Sali chicken which was cooked in herbs. Delicious. Husband had chicken razala. Slightly too hot for him. But delicious none the less and he ate it. We are comparing with other Indian restaurants as this was our first visit after moving to this area. We also had mushroom bahji and sag aloo. All good great flavours. It was a Thursday evening and quite busy so obviously popular. My only criticism is when you go to the toilets which are very clean, outside are the staff stairs and that area looked unpleasant with a bucket and mop - it just all looked scruffy and dirty and detracted from the overall impression. My advise would be to shut this area off behind a door. We will definitely return and hope take always are as good.More

Annoyed because last time I ordered, I ordered a selection of dips for my poppodons but got four of the same, couldn’t be bothered complaining. Just ordered now minus popadoms! Can’t get through on phone so paid not only for dips but poppodons I haven’t...received. Waste of money during a cost of living crisis!More

Visited on 14th May to dine with friends. The venue is really comfortable, clean and altogether pleasant and the staff are beyond fabulous. I don't drink much alcohol and instead asked for a ginger beer with lime lime but they didn't have ginger beer. Instead...I ordered lime and soda and the next thing I receive a lovely glass of ginger and lime because they had taken the trouble to go out and buy some ginger beer for me. That is real service and with the food being so good we shall be going back again and again.More
