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.

I’ve been ordering from Blue Cobra (Takeaway, 1/2 times a week) for about 9 months since moving to Southsea. They have always delivered excellent food (best Ch Tk Dhansak I’ve had; thick sauce, full of lentils, rich and spicy (requested vindaloo hot). Very reasonable prices...(order through their website), friendly staff and always get a poppadum or two on the house. Never eaten in, but I know they’d welcome me and it would be fantastic. Thanks!More

We are from the West Indies and we love Indian food. This time we were extremely disappointed. The worst Indian food ever. The parathas were like bad pancakes and the chicken tikka massala was more or less like tomatoe soup with a few lost pieces...of chicken. Very, very sad...More

I waited 2 hours for a delivery, one came which ultimately was cold, then after several phone calls a replacement arrived 2.5 hours after the initial order had been placed. Very stressful affair.

Lovely food but check prices as spent 5quid on a pint of coke there. I understand inflation but wow. 4 cokes for 20quid. Come on. Margin on that is just greedy. Especially with all the ice.

We went early on a Friday evening. We got there just before 6 and there were already quite a few people there. By 7 o'clock the place was packed. A good sign. The "Lubbly Jubbly" waiter from The Bombay Express has moved there. He recognized...us after 5 years which was a nice touch. The place is nicely decorated and the table linen is crisp and white. The service is excellent, quick and attentive. The food was lovely (apart from slightly soggy papadoms). I had a duck curry and Gabrielle, my wife, had prawn korma. We both enjoyed our meals. The portions were generous. Not cheap at £57 but it represented good value. We will return it and recommend it to everyone.More
