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 ordered a family meal for delivery, after 90 minutes it hadn't arrived so I called and was told the driver was 2 minutes away. After 20 more minutes and still no food, I called again and was told the driver was round the corner,...10 more minutes and still no sign and now over 2 hours since we ordered our food and made a third call and was told the driver was definitely close however, it was still another 10 minutes before it would arrive. No apology at all and to top it off when our food arrived, all the labels were correct but the contents did not match what was inside. Starving hungry we just ate what we got but not what we has paid for. Terrible service and the food was poor too. Won't be a returning customer and will advise others to avoid. An apology or actually a partial refund would have been a start.More

If I could give 0 stars, I would. The food was absolutely disgusting. We ordered tandoori chicken, which was good, alongside garlic naan and butter chicken (we said balti chicken on the phone but ended up getting butter chicken). The butter chicken was ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!...IT IS LIKE THEY ADDED 100 GRAMS OF SUGAR TO THE CURRY AFTER MAKING IT. I could not eat the curry as a result of the sweetness and had to throw it away. Service was appalling too. We called them over the phone to ask for a refund or for a replacement balti chicken curry without the sugar. They refused to do so. WORST TAKEAWAY EXPERIENCE EVER AND THE WORST TAKEAWAY SHOP IN READING. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!More

Reasonably priced and friendly staff. Ordered a set meal for 2 that could easily fed at least 3. Everything was really tasty, and if I lived 200 miles closer I'd be a regular customer. The lady taking the orders is a little gem.

As far as a standard curry goes - this is definitely the best in the area. Thick sauces and lots of flavour, everything was delicious. Cheap delivery too.

Third time we've used this takeaway and each time the food has been very very good. But, each time the food delivered has fallen short of the order placed. Todays cost about £65 but about £7.00 worth of food was missing. The feeling of being...cheated spoils an otherwise superb mealMore

The tastiest curry in Caversham, love the ease of ordering on line. We recently place a large order for 13 people, my instructors were followed and the food was delivered on time👍

Firstly I never normally do reviews. I have lived in Reading 20 years. Originally from North London where the curries were good. This curry house is easily the best in Reading. Non greasy, consistently fantastic tasty meals. All at a great price too. Delivery is...prompt and extremely friendly. I would thoroughly reckoned to you all . I have never had a bad meal or poor service in 20 years. A real small gem in Cavershem. KeithMore

Qumin used to be really good- we always order the king prawn tikka and they used to be huge, succulent prawns and very well spiced-our most recent order they were small and dry and smelt slightly suspicious upon first opening the package. Everything else also...tasted much blander and oilier than it used to. Have they changed management/ cooks? As previous review has noted everything arrives tepid temperature. Such a shame as they used to be great! We'll order elsewhere next time.More

A pretty good first time experience for this Indian takeaway. Poppadums were good as were the samosas. Curries were really good, spicy and hot. The only negative was that we were told to collect our takeaway at 7.45pm and it was not ready until 8.10....Needs to be sorted before we use it again.More
