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.

5* service. 5* food. Always a warm welcome. We go quite often. Food always fresh, and simply the best. Very reasonable price. Unlicensed. Take your own.

Went for my birthday. Food was fabulous and served quickly. The pakoras were especially delicious - I've never been taken by them from any other restaurant, but these were brilliant! A great time was had by all!

Been there first time for dinner with family.. Ordered couple dishes nd couple naans... eated naans nd waited 20 mins that someone will come to ask more order or naans.. No 1 come around at all then I headed towards their kitchen to knock someone...come out.. I said story but he didn't listen nd said u not ordered all in once before.. We dont take after orders I said well we need to order according to wht we require as every restaurant has different portion sizes.. but he is not accepting... Still saying we take all order in once... Was STRANGE to to me as when we go to any restaurant we order in between if we want more food... So not happy at all with service nd attitude. As they not mentioned this in beginning... So from me 1 starMore

Was greeted & seated & given a menu to browse through, On opening the menu I was greeted with disbelief as there was dirty food in the greasy menu, On asking for a replacement clean menu, I was laughed at & several menus were checked...before I was handed a clean one with greasy finger marks on, Food was not much better as Chicken Tikka Masala tasted like bland chicken in a cheap tomato soup thickened up with cornflour,plus the chicken tikka pathia tasted like a sauce out of a jar of Pataks & all the chicken was cut into small pieces instead of left in the chunky pieces the way they should be cooked. Not the best place to eatMore

Food was amazing and the staff went out there way and provided excellent service. Very polite and friendly, we drove down from Preston and was worth the little drive. The lamb curry and the chicken biryani wow left speechless the flavours the tenderness of the...meat and the spice everything spot on 👌🏽 will definitely be coming back again. I thought Blackpool was just the place for fish and chips now it’s the place for Indian food too!More

If you’re seasoning with salt and pepper, this place is perfect for you. I don’t normally leave reviews good or bad but this place place I didn’t like the food apart from the lamb chops as a starter, the poppadom did not taste fresh and...tasted like they had been sitting out for a while We ordered a few different dishes and asked for it to be spicy. All we tasted was spice there was no flavour to the actual food. A bad experience for us and we eat this type of food regularly.More

No. You have to bring your own. They don't offer you coolers for wine and they had no ice either on our visit.
