Been before and was ok. However this meal wasn’t great and had to ask several times for the coconut chutney which was much better last time this time so thick.My aloo was too hot. The kebabs tasted frozen. The chicken curry was like a supermarket...curry. The lentil curry was the best. Papadams lovely and fresh. There were a group of men watching tv who were very loud. It reminds me of a working men’s club. Good for people who like to watch sport TVs everywhere. Didn’t feel like a dining experience. It is what it is and will probably suit some.More

Waited ages for the main meal after asking several times, finally asked for the bill and had to leave. Really disappointing and poor service. Recommend not to go here.

I’ve been here lots of times over the past nearly 5 years & I have honestly never been disappointed. There’s something about the relaxed atmosphere, the pool table down one end & the restaurant seating/tables down the other end. It never feels dark even though...your at ground level and there’s only a few shallow windows. There’s a massive selection of drinks on offer. The staff are always super friendly. The food, oh the food! The food is absolutely on point! Always served piping hot, fresh and well presented plus really well priced! I highly recommend this place to anyone far and wide.More

The food is nice, i had 4 vodkas with my meal. When the bill comes I see I got charged for 8! I asked why I was charged for 8 and the reply was “we always presume a double unless you ask for a single”...isn’t it standard that you presume a single unless asked for a double? Such a rob. This added an extra £20 to our bill unknown to us? Found it a bit of a joke.More

Take away , ordered from here a number of times and every time it has arrived on time and piping hot, with some Indian restaurants all of the dishes can taste the same but with Arena everything that we order has it's own unique look...and taste, never had a bad dish and all of our food has been very tasty.More

This was our first takeaway during lockdown and I have been excited to try The Arena for some time. We ordered two chicken starters, crispy bhajias, chilli garlic mogo and the daal makhani. One of the chicken dishes was drenched in oil, it was a...little off putting but once we wiped most of the oil off, the chicken was nice. We loved the vegetarian starters but found the daal makhani had a strange tangy taste. I have to say it didn’t taste right at all and we sadly didn’t eat it. We ordered our meal via an online app and had specified for no coriander to be used on any meals and if it was possible to have extra mint sauce. We were disappointed to see the food was covered in coriander and we’d only been given one tiny tub of mint sauce. My partner had to go to Tesco’s during our meal just to get yoghurt to help the meal. Disappointing that our notes weren’t taken into consideration!More

The best Indian food in the area, this is an informal bar/restaurant where the food is outstanding. As it’s a bar there’s no particular rush to finish up so you can relax with some drinks before and after your meal. Also a great place to...watch football on a weekend with plenty of Tvs. I can recommend the mixed grill!More

Been here several times. The food is always lovely and good size portions. Most recent trip I tried the chilli , garlic lamb which was delicious as was the chilli paneer and jalfrezi I really enjoy the popadom sauce they have (red chilli one). Staff...are always friendly. This is also a good place for a drinksMore
