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.

A very nice Indian restaurant. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. The food is delicious and carefully presented. We have been here a few times with my sister and her family, who are all vegans, and the menu offers a lot of choice for...vegetarian and vegan customers. The staff are careful to accommodate dietary preferences. The onion bhajis are crisp and delicious. Any of the vegetable side dishes can be ordered as a main if preferred. The portions are generous. You get real linen table napkins here, which is always a sign of a great restaurant that cares about small details. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated and the loos are very clean. However, if you have difficulty managing stairs, this may not be the best restaurant for you as the loos are upstairs on the first floor, and half of the dining area is up on a mezzanine about 4 steps up from the rest of the restaurant.More

I live in Scotland so always when visiting family we arrange to meet and have a meal here. My son, his girlfriend and myself went last week (2/05/23). The staff are always helpful, polite and greet us as long lost friends. The food was amazing,...the portions are generous with me always needing to have some boxed up to take away with us (my son has it the next day for work, so no leftovers). I must admit we made a mess of the tablecloth hopefully they were able to get the stains out. I highly recommend The Khyber if you want a good quality meal that’s not overly expensive. Thank you very much guys, we’ll be back soon 😊More

Thoroughly enjoyable night at the Kyber, the staff are very pleasant and the food is simply delicious. Seated quickly, drinks order taken and given time to look at the menu without feeling rushed. Lots on the menu to choose from and the staff are very...knowledgeable about their dishes. The restaurant was full but this did not impact on the waiting time once ordered. My husband had a lamb dish and I've never seen so much meat in one curry before with the lamb so tender, it was fantastic. I had the tandoori mixed special which was so flavoursome and divine. Overall I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, I travelled over 20 miles to get here and I would definitely go back again. Lovely food, lovely staff, lovely restaurant, well done Khyber!!More

After someone posting on fb that they weren’t satisfied, we went in trepidation. Well we found nothing to complain about. Staff were courteous, we were served promptly, the place clean, well kept and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. We weren’t rushed through and spent...2 1/2 hours over our meal. Not arty farty dining where it’s spot the meal on your plate, but definitely above mid range. Plenty for 2 people in the set menu. Tuesday night was a good day to choose. We will be back for my birthday.More

After hearing such great reviews we was really looking forward to trying this place. We travelled nearly half an hour to get there in the car. From the moment we walked in we could tell there would be a time issue. We was a table...of 2 and was sat in the foyer for around 10 minutes before we was taken to our booked table. 10 minutes isn't long if the restaurant was full but there was plenty of tables available. While waiting we wasn't offered a drink or spoken to once. Once we got to our table we was served drinks promptly and given menus and that was where the service ended. After 45 minutes of waiting, we still hadn't been asked our order. We then was asked if we would like another drink, we said no, eventually we was asked to give our order. I didn't make a fuss, I simply explained how long we had been waiting and said we would like to leave and go somewhere else. They asked why and after explaining they gave us the drinks on the house and said ok. I cannot comment on the food but it did smell good. On the service, I think that was what let them down, no-one explained on arrival that they were under pressure and that food would take a while. They wasn't under staffed, there was plenty of people serving drinks but none came to us to ask us or even made eye contact with us. So in my opinion, the only people that would have enjoyed the evening would have been people that was there for the night and drinking plenty and not bothered by how long they was there for. This was not a luxury we had as one was driving.More

Having heard and read lots of positive comments about Khyber we decided to try it for ourselves. Having recently moved to the area we are slowly finding our way round and trying different places. What a bonus to find that we have a superb Indian...restaurant almost in our doorstep, The Khyber is fantastic, a lovely place with friendly and attentive staff. The fact it was so busy on a midweek night was a good sign too. A comprehensive and interesting menu gave us plenty of choice and we weren’t disappointed, the food was superb, really fresh and spiced just right. Already planning our next visit.More

I rarely give 5*. But the Khyber consistently delivers good food, good portions, at an excellent price, in what is evidently a very well run restaurant. The service is impeccable. The team know what they are doing, and they do it well. And it is...great fun. While I understand it isn't the model, I'd love to see some dish trials like Dishoom, JKS, Jikoni...More

Asked a local, which was the best Indian restaurant local to Epworth, and he immediately without hesitation only offered one suggestion which is always a good sign [Kyber]. OMG, he wasn't wrong. After living in Bradford for several years and dining at what are considered...the best Indian restaurants in that area, it's often difficult to find that level of expertise and quality and strength of ingredients outside of cities as quite rightly they appear to soften the tastes to cater for a more traditional English taste bud. Not so the case here. The focus is certainly on taste and flavours as opposed to spice and burn, and the quality and the cuts of meat were exceptional. As it was our 1st visit we opted for their 'Special' set menu for two, as I usually find that these are paired correctly, whilst still taking you on a taste safari around their kitchen. It proved a good choice on our part, and without going into detail of each dish, all were cooked to perfection, and of a size that meant empty plates and cookware were returned to the kitchen, rather than taken home in a doggy bag, with two exceptions being that the set menu includes coffees and desserts that we had no room for, and politely declined. However, as an indicator of the level of service and customer satisfaction that the restaurant offers, they asked us to choose two frozen desserts and bagged these up for us to take home. Ten out of ten in every department gentlemen. Thank you, and we look forward to returning soon and exploring the whole menu.More
