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.

After ordering this food, I am currently sick. So we ordered cheesy naan this was stale and they slapped cheese on the top and microwaved it, peshwari naan just about eadable, chicken tikka masala this was by far the most disgusting thing I've tasted to date. This felt like it was store bought and served, and usually, it's a lovely bright redish colour. This looked like a yellow baby poo colour tasted worse than if looked. Pilau Rice, now this was so dry 😩 it felt like I'd been walking in the Sahara for day with no water. I was glad I had ordered a juice. Bombay Aloo had no taste at this point. I wanted to scream WTF.. it gets worse... After explaining to the staff how terrible the food was. I asked for the bill, and they were willing to remove the masala, and after a few polite words were exchanged, they removed the slapped on cheesy naan. They decided to charge me £5 for the "free" poppadoms they gave at the start, and everything has seemed more expensive in price. I really wished I had taken photos to document my experience. I had just never had such an ordeal where everything I ate was nasty. After getting home, I am currently writing this review from the toilet. I've been home for about 2 hours, I can't move.

Absolutely never again, was sceptical after reading the other reviews but I should have listened. Food was terrible definitly not authentic whatsoever more like microwave served on a plate - was given complimentary popadoms on arrival but then after complaining about my food the complimentary disappeared and there was a £5 charge for 2Popadoms!!! … save your money and stay home and cook. Don’t support this foolishness.

After 38 years and always loving The Agra as my favourite Indian , I’m sad to say that will be my last visit. It started out badly , a rude waiter bringing two large Cobra beers , we didn’t ask for large , didn’t make a fuss. The problem I have , is that when you order 3 naan breads , why do they now arrive cut into uniform small pieces , I believe they were salvaged leftovers from other diners! The naans were always a highlight here. The Tandoori butter chicken served in a white China dish dish was stringy and no real whole pieces of chicken with the skewer wholes showing it had seen a tandoor oven. I’m heavily suspicious that other diners leftovers are being stored up and re served. The chicken Dhansak was just ok , but not a patch on how it used to be. The onion bajhi served with no lemon and the pilau rice was cold . This place was an absolute jewel and it’s lost its way and our custom.

A real blast from the past traditional Indian restaurant in every way. Been going here on and off for forty years. Popped in for lunch today. Great food and excellent service as always. Highly recommended.

Our regular haunt for 30 years or so...tried the Chicken Methi Vindaloo heat last night and was probably best Indian dish I've ever had. Compliments to the Chef!

Service was outstanding, helping us deal with an obnoxious group nearby! Food was fantastic as usual. 100% recommend as a great old school curry house.

We went to the Agra on a Monday evening. It was over half full which, when many restaurants near where I live don't even find it worthwhile opening on Sunday through to Wednesday, shows how popular it is. The food is what I'd call traditional, old-style Indian food - nothing fancy, just decent sized portions well cooked and served with impressive speed. The service was good, food very tasty, prices very reasonable and we'd happily return.

Quick attentive service, clean nice atmosphere, reasonably priced and great portion size but oh my goodness! So bland! My Nan could’ve made a tastier curry - no taste to any thing!

Absolutely terrible service: Waiter 2 hours for a delivery for the gentleman to turn around and keep telling me 5 minutes. NEVER EVER USE THESE!

Very unimpressed that it's all cold, the meat is tough and chewy and the over priced £11.95 lamb tikka bhuna was a very small portion, the container is less than half filled. £19.65 total for a small chewy bhuna, rice and a naan - all stone cold despite only living round the corner 0.3 miles from the resteraunt. I collected it myself so there is no excuse why it is coming out cold straight from the kitchen. I used to say this was the best Indian takeaway I'd ever had, but it has gone downhill and this last meal was the worst I'd ever had so I will not be ordering from Agra again.

An 'old school' curry house with friendly service, good prices and great food. What more can you ask for?

I have been visiting The Agra for 36 years and it’s still my favourite Curry House. It has the right feel and the food is just delicious. Eat in or take away is always spot on. Well done staff .

Just got back from eating at Agra. Everything was amazing as always. The food was so good this evening, just felt like i had to write a review. Tonight we had the chicken pakora, prawn patia, lamb madras and on the waiters suggestion, we had the paneer sizzler, which was so tasty. Poppadoms and paratha was also great. Staff are always polite and welcoming, and its always busy, with a nice atmosphere. Brilliant place, unchanged for years...which is the best bit
