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.

Absolutely disgusting experience. We all arrived starving from a long day out on Easter Monday. The reviews looked good overall but everything went down hill very fast after being served dead flies. OMG this has never happened. The place should be shut down

After dining here 9 times I think the chef had a bad night last night, the food was not up to the normal High standard and we felt very let down by the lack of attention to detail and the addition of a black hair...in my curry . We felt rushed out at 10.30 and our plates were taken away and we had not finished our dishes or drinks. The staff obviously wanted to go home! This is sad as we love it here and always spend a high amount of money each time we dine ! Please think how your actions affect your business and don’t rush good paying customers as they just won’t come back. ! Also our starter looked like a pile of manure not like the previous visits when you could distinguish the different meats .More

Fantastic food and brilliant service... Highly recommend this restaurant. The prawn starter was superb and the crispy crab was beautiful. If you're in Cardiff and you don't visit you're definitely missing out.

We selected this restaurant on account of its position (opposite the Cardiff Millennium Centre) and the mostly favourable reviews. What a shoddy disappointment! From the outside it is a terraced property with peeling paint on rusting railings in front of crumbling steps to a basement....To the side of the main entrance is a tacky pub with smokers and vapourers standing outside with their drinks on a large wooden beer barrel. Perhaps this is all a leftover from the notorious Tiger Bay area. Inside we were led to a scrubbed pine table with peeling varnish. The large menu card offered some hope, but the reality was so sad and disappointing. Poppadoms were very thin and curled up so that they disintegrated into tiny pieces as soon as they were touched. They were accompanied with a tray of three chutneys, which were all so watery and runny that they could only be served onto a plate with a spoon and could not be dipped or ladled onto the poppadoms. A starter, we only had one, was 'Duchess Calamari' supposedly accompanied by a tamarind chutney. About 6 very thinly sliced rings from what must have been a very small squid were presented with a spice-hot liquid, not a chutney. Our enquiry about the hotness of main course choices was met with total incomprehension, as the non -english- speaking waiter tried to read the menu card. My main course was Beef Rendang (£22.75) which the menu claimed had 20 ingredients. The beef was tender but the mushy sauce seemed to have just chilli as the only tastable content, masking anything else that might otherwise have been in the sauce. My partner unwisely chose the Goan Green Chicken Curry (also £22.75) which she told me contained very basic cheap chicken pieces with a sauce so chilli-hot that it was almost inedible. Both our main dishes were accompanied with steamed rice with little or no flavour or seasoning and a chapati which had the texture of cardboard. So no dessert or coffee, but nevertheless a bill of a few pence less than £70 ( one tea and one beer) plus a rather small tip of £5. We will not be returning and suggest that others might reconsider putting this establishment on their wish listMore

Great vegan curry this evening and so close to the Millennium Centre. I’ve been here several times before and will come again for certain. Especially charming service from a family-owned restaurant but it’s the food I come here for. Excellent. Thank you.
