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 walked into the town while on a nightout in my truck. I decided to walk in and order a takeaway. On first walking in the restaurant was very small, I went to the counter where I was greeted by a young waiter who looked...like he was training, didn't understand what I was trying to order the someone else abruptly came over with a raised voice to the young guy which I found wasn't nice infront of a customer. The Curry (meat madras) itself was very runny it was more like soup and no taste. Wouldn't recommend anyone going here just for the attitude of the guy that came over. Sorry if you don't agree, but I only review what I truly experience.More

Last minute meal out with family, we brought our mum here for an early Mother’s Day meal. The service by Sheila was so friendly yet professional, she is so welcoming and helpful. The food was really affordable with the Wednesday offer and it all came...quickly and was delicious! We’ll definitely come back next time we come to Kendal! Thank you for the lovely service Sheila :)More

Have had food from here lots of times before both takeaway & eat in so decided to order a new year's day takeaway. Ordered online at 4.30, paid & were told we would be notified when to collect the order, however my husband had to...ring at 5.30 to see the status of our order only to be told it was ready. When be arrived to collect it be mentioned the lack of communication but no one seemed bothered. It was order no 2 so bad probably been ready for half an hour before we collected it. When we got it home it was almost cold & while mine was ok my husband said his was just average. This is unacceptable, if you can't handle online, telephone & walk in orders then either take on more staff or reduce demand. Either way you have lost a customer todayMore

We have ordered here or 12 mths and usually through the Just eat app. We ordered last week and th emoney was taken and then some 45 mins later (once all other vendors had closed) we were notified the restaurant wasn't reachable and the money...was refunded but we were left without any meal that night. I called the restaurant this evening as on the Just Eat app they were accepting pre-orders only?! But to avoid any confusion i called to ascertain if they were accepting orders.... We were told by a nice mannered lady that we could order directly, so i asked to compare the price as a takeaway and the price of in house when ordering a pilau rice. The price was the same to eat in as it was o takeaway but the lay said if we pay cash then we would receive 10% discount.... As a customer of 12mths+ and as a local business operator it made me wonder why i was being penalised for using card given that 80% of retail sales are now paid by card. I usually get the same response from a window cleaner or independent taxi driver who wont accept cards (if i pay tax so do you !) I concluded that charging me to eat in and then adding delivery and service charges was a bit more than excessive and today they lost a customer that normally spends £70 - £80 each time. Unfortunately there is little value in this offering and we wont be ordering here anymore! A card fee is usually between 2-5% depending on the gross turnover so its not a great deal when charging restaurant prices for a take-away. Very short sighted!! I personally believe this has changed management or lost some key decision makers that now make poor big picture decisions. Shame to say the least Fairwell Eatern Balti ;)More

I actually ordered for home delivery. I placed an order for £44.40. We were quoted 45 minutes for delivery. It took almost double the time. The driver tried charging £47.00, the food was cold and the manager was supposed to call me. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

Lovely food, even if it was a bit quiet. Went for my wife's XXth birthday and we all really enjoyed it. Two of the dishes were quite hot (our problem not theirs) but really well flavoured and in the end quite reasonable. As someone else...commented, it doesn't look much from the outside and it's not in the centre (only a 5 minute walk) but don't let that stop you.More

Really good food in a small but cheerful restaurant. We enjoyed a tasty lamb balti and saag aloo. All well cooked and flavoured. Worth a visit.

Upsides, lovely lady owner who was very chatty and attentive. Ditto the excellent waiter. Food was tasty and well prepared with good portion sizes. Very cheap by the bottle wine prices. Downsides, curiously restrictive menu, we did find food that we really enjoyed but are...more used to a wider menu offering. Whilst the restaurant was pretty dead in terms of customers which didn't help, the ambience was disappointing, the decor is not to our taste - it is a fop to bright light and granite table top trendiness with no reference to Indian restaurants of old. Maybe this is what other customers want these days? The Eiffel Tower picture on the wall was really out of place but oddly intriguing! Would use again as a takeaway but not as an eat-in destination.More

We were going to go somewhere else but it was pouring with rain so we thought we'd give it a go and we weren't disappointed. Its a fairly standard curry menu but all the food was good. Service was good too. Its obviously popular as...there were a stream of take away deliveries.More

We were looking for a quick evening meal not too far from the Riverside Hotel on Stramongate Bridge. Despite the fact it looked empty when we walked past, the Eastern Balti really delivered Good food, nice people, great service. Would really recommend as an alternative...to hotel suppers - and as a grand supper after a day on the Lakes.More

Pretty sure they don’t. I haven’t heard about this and have lived here for quite a few years. You can get pizza pasta early bird not far from here.
