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 went on the last day of sit down before lockdown 2, We booked a table and they took £10.00 per person upfront at time of booking,this came off your food at the end of the meal. I had not done this before and at first was a little apprehensive,what if my unreliable friends pull out and i lose money ? Still did it anyway and the meal was as fantastic as always,freshly prepared and very tasty. loads on menu something for everyone. Parking at rear of restaurant. if your a dessert fan this is not the best place as only 1 item on menu but i hardly see anyone eating dessert in any indian normally going for a starter and main only. RECOMMENDED

Last night was perfect, my partner has an allergy to all nuts including almond nuts. They made her a chicken tikka masala with coconut which was perfect. The hospitality was brilliant. They went the extra mile ensuring we were happy with everything they even made a mint raita to our liken as were not a fan of cucumber or onion raita. Was brilliant great value for money very happy. 5* all the way! Our little waiter was also brilliant Thanks again :)

We have got this three times in the last month. Our usual place has been closed due to Covid and took the risk of trying somewhere new. Great find! Great delivery service, arrives hot, and food is excellent quality and really flavoursome. Looking forward to visiting in person

I genuinely don't believe Pipasha take-away service matches up to the restaurant servings dining in. We find the portions to be far less generous and at £3.50 delivery isn't good value for money. This evenings order will be the last until your reopening. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I feel Pipasha Restaurant is due some honest feedback, which I hope you will receive with the spirit in which it is intended

Dear Mel, I am really sorry that you felt you had to leave a negative review. We are an approachable and friendly business and happy for customers to call/message or email us with any constructive criticism. Our takeaway containers are industry standard sizes and most customers end up having leftovers for the next day. Delivery charges reflect the distance of travel and any customers that wish to avoid delivery charges can always collect. Thank you and best wishes Pipasha.

We decided to get a takeaway from pipasha, as it was friday, payday and couldnt be bothered to cook. So rang up ordered food over the phone and drove about 12 mile round trip. When I got the food home, they put in onion bhajis which were really greasy,in instead of onion fried rice, I had chicken birriani, the sauce you usually get a mixture of veg, but all I got was 4 bits of potato in a sauce, no other veg! Got hardly any chicken either. So my husband ended up cooking his own rice as it would take half an hour to wait for the rice to come! And it was £42! So very disappointed!!

Dear Nikko, thank you for ordering your takeaway from Pipasha. I understand that a mistake may have happened when you placed your order. Onion bhaji had been listed on the order instead of Onion Rice, this is obviously a human error and we quickly apologised and offered you a resolution. We do take great care to repeat all orders back to customers. We also urge customers to order online as this will eliminate any human errors and you will receive a confirmation of your order. Upon your phone call, I offered to make you a fresh Onion Rice and redeliver to you as soon as possible. You declined as you were not prepared to wait 30 minutes, I then said that I will give make amends when you ordered next. In respect of Biryani, as listed on our menu, Biryani comes with a sauce and not vegetable curry. Once again I apologise for any mistake in your order, I offered the best resolutions I could and I am sorry that despite apologising and offering to replace the rice or resolve on your next order, you still felt that you needed to voice your opinion on TripAdvisor. Regards Pipasha.

I have been enjoying the gorgeous menu and hospitality provided by Abdul, Modu and their team since 2002. I enjoyed a takeaway from Pipasha 3 weeks ago and it was FABULOUS! Truly, as good as any I can remember. Abdul and Modu are just the most warm, hospitable, welcoming hosts and the dishes and atmosphere never let me down. Thanks guys - truly a jewel of a restaurant in Cambridge!

We have eaten at Pipasha or had a take-away, sometimes collected sometimes delivered at least 20 times over the last 4 years. It never fails to please. The food is excellent. My favourites are the Lamb Husseine and the Taka Dhal. We took some Indian friends from Southern Africa there a couple of years ago and they were very complimentary. So, in summary, excellent honest food, great service and an establishment to be valued and appreciated.

Very expensive... And I'm talking way over the odds. For 2 Currys, special rice boiled rice, 1 nan bread and 4 popadoms, a bottle of water and a diet coke.... £43... I could not believe it. The food was ok, no better nor worse than any other curry house in Cambridge, but easily the most expensive. I will never be going back there again.

Dear Mal, thank you for your review. We appreciate that you are not a regular of Pipasha, we have been established for over 21 years. Price is of course dependent on many factors, every restaurant will have different overheads, costs and much more, I don't really want to give a business lesson here. We believe we offer value for money and that our price point ensures that we can run a business that pays our staff fairly, allows us to pay all of our bills, maintain a high standard restaurant, give high quality produce in our dishes and where possible in these hard times, make some form of profit. Our menu, has many dishes at different prices and a cheaper price can be achieved by ordering the lesser-priced items. Customers can also benefit from £5 off and 10% ongoing discount when ordering from our mobile app. All the best.

We were recommended this restaurant so I phoned to book a table but was advised to book online which was easy. Restaurant is opposite Cambridge United ground on Newmarket Road. We were shown to our table and told how to access the online menu to make our choices, plenty of different options and house specialities. We chose our drinks and poppadoms to start, no mint raitta or lime pickle on menu. Main courses were served as soon as we finished poppadoms. My rogan josh was not very good but saag ponir was good my wife chose Tikka passander and this was nice but very bland. Point to note! When you book online they charge you £20 so you have to turn up.

We my sister and I arrived first at the restaurant, as we arrive early, we had to wait for the restaurant to open, as I had booked a table there for 4.30pm for four people, ourselves and and our two guests, a father and daughter, members of our informal club, arrived a few minutes later, all of us went in, said hello to a couple of the waiting staff, and were shown to our table after confirming the name of the reservation, after sitting down, a waiter came to our table, we firstly ordered drinks, a bottle of Diet Coke, for the daughter, and three bottles of Cobra Beer, for the father and ourselves. After we had started our drinks, our waiter came back and asked us if we wanted to order, we said yes and we ordered starters, which were Popadoms with a Chutney tray, onion bhajis, feta cheese and spinach samosas, and both Special Naan breads , for the father and daughter, and Garlic Naan Breads for my sister and myself. After this, our waiter back, and we ordered our mains, the father and daughter, ordered a korahi prawn sagwala, for himself, and a chicken tikka masala for his daughter, my sister had tiger prawn biryani, and I had Goan fish curry with lemon & coriander rice, which was well presented, had good portions of food, and overall the quality of the food that we ate as a group was exceptional

My husband and I hadn't visited the Pipasha before but we felt that it lived up to all the expectations we had gleaned from their website. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They were happy to assist with my sight problems, assisting as and where necessary. Totally unaware that for us it was a special celebration meal, the staff at the Pipasha went out of their way to make our visit memorable for all the right reasons. If you've never been - please go and have a wonderful meal in congenial surrounds with lovely, helpful staff.

Went back to Pipasha last evening after quite a long break and were delighted to find that the food and service were every bit as good as it always had been. You have always been made to feel so welcome there and that just hasn't changed. We would thoroughly recommend Pipasha to anyone who enjoys tasty food, well served in a friendly aymosphere

Visited the team at the Pipasha after an absence of nearly 2 years, due to the pandemic. We ordered a selection of dishes between the four of us, and everyone was delighted with their respective dishes. Well done Abdul and company, it’s still a great experience at your restaurant. Thank you.

The restaurant is located opposite Cambridge United's football ground and is therefore the perfect location for a pre-evening match curry. The menu has a good range of choices and the staff are all very welcoming, The food was served promptly and was nice and (temperature) hot. All in all a very enjoyable meal experience.
