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.

The exterior and interior of the restaurant are tatty and really could do with a freshen up. Our starters, popadoms were lovely, lots of dips in the pickle tray! I had chick pea curry and taaka dhal as my main with rice, which were ok...but not hugely tasty. We had some breads with our dishes, my partner said they were brushed with marge not butter 🥹 My partner had lamb shashlik .. lamb in a mustard sauce. He said the meat was rather tough. The cost of the meat dish was taken off the bill as he had eaten very littl. This was really appreciated. The staff were helpful and polite :) Service was prompt.More

After arriving we were pressured to order drinks and starters. In the space of around 4 minutes we were checked on/ watched and asked if our food was ok by 3 members of staff. We had staff hovering around us and moving plates etc whilst...still eating. To the point my child was upset and thought something was wrong. Food was very bland, oily and not to the standard expected for a £106 bill. After being advised by themselves that they are child friendly as I have a 5, 11, 13 and 9 year old with us. We were charged £9.50 for fried chicken nuggets for a picky 5 year old that was unable to eat them due to being burnt and awful! The whole meal with my family we were made to feel very uncomfortable, unwelcome and we couldn’t wait to leave. I would advise anyone with young family to avoid. I would never visit the place again. I am shocked how poor this place is as it is still open.More

Located about 10mins from Sheffield centre,a lovely Indian restaurant nicely decorated with friendly attentive staff and lovely food. We all had different meals all of which were very nice although I thought they needed to be slightly hotter temperature wise netherless very nice.

Ordered a takeaway via just eat for 3 of us at £46 total. This is honestly the worst takeaway curry we have ever had. The starters of poppadoms, onion bhaji and sheekh kebab tasted old and stale like they'd been around a few days. We...ordered a pickle tray at £4 to go with the poppadoms but this was missing. The lamb karhai was loaded up with large pieces of onions and peppers which we had to pick around to get to the small amount of lamb there was (see photo). Although advertised as medium strength it had a strange bland sauce that was nothing like a curry taste with little spice or heat. A kharai should be a strong tasting, spicy dry dish. The tandoori butter chicken dish had some sort of strange shredded chicken, no hint of the tandoori. It was more like a basic korma dish (see photo). If the above wasn't enough, all the food was lukewarm and served in plastic tubs rather than the foil containers which tend to keep the heat in for longer. We ordered the meal as a Saturday night treat to finish off a weekend away. We tried to eat the meal as we were very hungry but left most of it on our plates. At £46 for a meal we threw most of away, and with the cost of living leading us to have to consider spending our money very carefully, we will certainly never risk ordering from here again. I can cook a better curry at home but I wouldn't claim to be a specialist like this resteraunt does.More

Food was very good as always and prices are fine. But we had booked for 19.45 and it had all been worked out as I came from a long way off and was returning afterwards by bus after meeting friends who live in Crookes. We...were kept waiting until 20.10 for a table which of course completely messed up my bus timetable arrangements. Shame the evening was rather spoilt as a result.More

We'd not been here before and came here for an early evening meal with friends. Friendly welcome, comfortable seats (& quite a lot of soft furnishings which kept the noise level down - a bonus these days). The service was quick too which suited us...well as we were going on to a gig nearby. The menu's pretty standard and 3 of the 4 of us were very happy with the large and tasty onion bhajis we ordered for starters (plus poppadums and the large pickle tray), plus the large main dishes. The one disappointment was the vegetarian thali chosen by one of the party - me - which was rather ordinary. Another time I'd do what I usually do which is to order a couple of my favourite vegetarian side dishes. The salted lassi was also good and the large jug we'd ordered was polished off enthusiastically. Overall a good but not exceptional meal, but in welcoming surroundings - so definitely worth coming back toMore

It's been far too long since my last visit, coming here always reminds me that I have missed good quality tasty food, a great ambience with lovely company. This visit was to celebrate a friends birthday, not that we neded any excuse to come here....Drinks was the traditional cold Kingfisher beer, We ordered poppadoms which came with a choice of 8 fresh accompaniments. These were a great start to our meal. Our mains was a naan that honestly was fresh, sumptious and just unbelievably soo good, along with plain boiled rice, Tarka Dahl, Sag paneer and Chana Bhaji. We were not disappointed, the food tasted amazing. I could talk more about this gorgeous fresh food, it's never greasy, ar covered in oil! It's consistently the best Indian food in the UK. However, I don't want to leave without mentioning the staff, who are considerate, friendly, conscientious, brilliant and caring. Thank you for being the very best Indian restaurant/takeaway in the UK!!More
