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.

This is the best place I have tried in the UK. Authentic Indian food run by an Indian family. My favourites are samosas and vada pav both these items literally give competition to indian sellers in India. Can’t recommend enough. This place with its food...takes me back to India with each bite.More

I recently visited a charming restaurant with unique decor and a friendly owner. The authentic dishes were delicious, though the portion sizes were a bit small. Overall, it was a lovely experience!

A new experience for us - an authentic vegetarian Indian restaurant. Bobby is an excellent host advising and guiding you through the menu. To say the food is outstanding is not sufficient. A truly magnificent experience. Who needs meat and fish when vegetables of this...quality are availableMore

Absolutely delicious vegetarian Indian food served by the charismatic Bobby - we’ll be back for sure to explore more of the menu! (And we’ll put sugar in our chai this time ☺️) The food reminded us of Dishoom!

I'm sure Chai Station would take bookings, but it's rarely full so we've never had a problem. Don't know why it's not busier - food is great.
