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.

The food was very overrated. It was cold and very overpriced for the small bits of meat we got in our food, the waiters/waitresses were quite rude and arrogant. We were not checked on and had to ask at the bar for drinks. We was...then told to go away and someone would come and take a drinks order and that never happened the toilet disgusting it was not clean. There was no tissue no hand wash. The bin was overflowing was just a disgrace of a place to eat. You want to be ashamed serving food like that price for what I received at night was absolutely disgusting go to Curry garden I will definitely be next time when we ask to speak to the manager are young boy came out he didn’t really understand us in the end we just ate our food and left without a drink as we were still waiting when our food came. Even though we asked for times for drinks we still did not get any and then they pulled there face when we remove the service charge.More

We’ve used this place many times, and most times enjoyed it. Things have changed though. Really not good food, bland and old tasting. But the main thing is they often pull the ‘broken card machine ‘ trick. Cash only & we all know why. During...the summer a family member had the same thing and said he had no cash & as if by magic a working machine appeared. Might have a word with a good friend of mine who works for HMRC. Don’t encourage them!!More

This was our second visit to this excellent family run restaurant. Both times we have enjoyed some delicious dishes, prepared and served to a very high standard. Olid, our server this evening, was most charming and helpful; he is clearly very proud of the restaurant...and enjoys his time in St. Ives. Our experiences of this fine establishment make us unreservedly able to recommend you to also partake of its culinary delights. Great food. Good service. Pleasant ambiance. Good value. What is not to like. Come here!More

This restaurant is lovely for a nice wine and dine evening meal. There was 4 of us and it was rather late but they still had no problem with seating us. My girlfriend did have a few too many and was in the toilet after...ordering but they yet still did not have a problem. The wait was really quick for our food and we were served in no time. I had the lamb tikka and it was beautiful! In the end I asked if some food could be taken away and they were happy to do so, really lovely evening. As a chef myself I give this place a good 8-9/10!More

We booked a table in advance via telephone. There is a huge choice on the menu at reasonable prices. The food was very good and the service was good. When they presented us with the bill it had a 10% service charge on which was...written as though it was compulsory (no mention of it on the menu). When we enquired we were infact told it wasn't so we asked them to remove it. We don't like giving a tip on a card as you never know if it actually goes to the staff so we left a cash tip instead.More

We weren’t expecting this to be all that good, in a tourist town full of holiday makers - but we gave it a go. Oh my. Literally the most lovely Indian meal we’ve have for a long time. I had chicken tikka madras, my husband...had vegetable jalfrezi, with pilau rice and fries. We have booked to go back tomorrow night. Service was excellent, food was amazing. Lovely and clean. And to top it off, you can take your own alcohol. They even provide glasses. Thank you for your amazing service.More

Great restaurant and lovely service. It was recommended by friends and I cannot believe in all our visits to St Ive’s that we have never been before. We had starters and then the Rajasthan Butter Murgh, Chicken Tikka Pathia, murgh Jalfrezi and Vegetable Tawa which...came on a sizzling pan. Everyone really enjoyed the food. Also, BYO alcohol was great as we brought what we like to compliment a curry. Thank you for a great evening. We look forward to our next visit.More

We ordered a takeaway and collected it. The order was for 5 people and £80 ( Cash only too!) Once home, we discovered that the order was missing 2 items and one dish was wrong. I called them and was told to go right the...way back to the shop to return some of the order, they would replace the missing items and we’d have to pay the difference…..their error and more worryingly was that they wanted the wrong dish back! For what to re sell to someone else after we’d handled it? I asked to speak to the manager and was shocked to find that they very rude male I was talking to was the manager!More
