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.

Consistently top quality food. The fish pakoras are fresh, huge and succulent. The curries are so delicious and perfectly spiced. The tarka dall and saag paneer sides are the best we’ve ever had. I’m convinced this is currently thw best Indian in sheffield and the...surrounding areas. Also a massive praise to the staff they are extremely friendly, well mannered and welcoming. Highly recommendedMore

Ordered a Takeaway for collection. Told it would take 80 minutes, went to collect and had to wait a further 20 minutes. Food was very poor/average, we had 2 chicken Dopiaza and they both had a full quarter onion in them plus loads of massive...slices of onion, only 6 small pieces of chicken. The onion bahji was dried and burnt, hardly edible.More

Avid curry lovers over a lot of years and we ordered off the takeaway menu. Chicken Madras had flavour and heat but not so much that it became bitter, Chicken Dopiaza full of flavour with spices and creaminess of onions coming through, Lamb Zal again...full of flavour with spices and chillies complimenting the natural taste of the lamb. The consistency of all 3 curries were rich, thick sauces with not a hint of runniness or excess oil floating on the top just as they should be. Mushroom and pilau rice and garlic naan breads perfectly done. We have struggled to get any type of consistency in recent years when ordering curries but this will be our go to place in future if this is the quality of food they produce.More

First time visiting here and very impressed. Tasty round and crispy Bhajis, best dopiaza I’ve ever tasted. Madras was perfect fluffy rice and big soft naans. Absolutely top quality food if it’s consistently this good we wouldn’t go anywhere else. Highly recommended

What a great place. We were up from Wales to see family and came here. Immaculately clean , and we received a warm welcome. Food outstanding especially King Prawn dopiaza. My sister used to live locally and we are going to see her in Whitby...tomorrow. She asked us to take 2 chicken tikka masalas ( CTM) with us as she adored them ! My husband only ever eats CTMs and said his was the best he had ever tasted. Lovely to see the owner keeping a good eye on everything. He should be very proud. Our waiter Kabi was very kind and patient with a great sense of humour. In the words of Arnie “We’ll be back”! Thank youMore

First time visitor. Met my mate who travelled down from Barnsley. He asked what time I'd booked it for and I just said ah it's Tuesday just rock up. Place was really busy / lively. They got us in though - thankfully! Two parties there...including one for a 7 year old girl - great to see rather than going to the usual McD's birthday party! Foodwise - well, when you rave about the quality of the pickle tray you know it's gonna be a good one. We asked about one of the pickles and the waiter told us how he made it. All food was good. Service was good / friendly. We had our fill - Steve couldn't finish his (slacker) but we vowed to come back. Many thanksMore

Me and my associate, Ray Von, went for a curry at this fine establishment after some good reviews and we were told to visit as we are big fans of curry and well respected in the spices industry. We were not disappointed when the starters...arrived. I had a chicken tikka starter, and Ray didn’t have a starter because he’s skint. My buhna was excellent whereas Ray decided his chicken was tough in his curry, even though we had the same curry. The bill was a respectable amount and I rated mine a 8.5/10. Ray gave his a 4.2/10 which I believe is a farse. Overall the curry came to a 6.7/10 as a combined amount.More
