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 worst Indian takeaway I’ve ever had!! I never leave reviews but feel people need to know how bad this was! Tandoori mixed grill with tikka masala sauce, no taste what’s so ever just heat. Unbearable heat, Tandoori chicken is not a nippy meal neither...is tikka masala. I can’t give one good comment on this meal, majority of it went in the bin. Keema Nan also super nippy, since when was keema Nan nippy think they’ve dropped a whole loads of chilli on the whole meal. Will not be back. Waste of £25 as £20 of it went in binMore

Food and wine were lovely and staff were great, lots of them and very efficient. Music was too loud, should have been background. Car park was a swimming pool, awful. On a night like this I don’t know how I manage to get across it...really bad and no lighting.More

Fantastic meal as usual, gorgeous food Only issue is the restaurant is too cold, have to wear your coat, it was the same the last time visited. Turn up the heating or switch it on, it’s okay for staff as they are rushing about so...will keep warm but customers are freezing!More

Arrived and seat quickly. Drinks quickly ordered and food orders of 2 chicken dishes and one lamb dish taken. Good start. Well portioned starters arrived and very tasty. When eating, asked how the food was. Then mains arrived. Waiter mumbled chicken dish, which thought for...daughter. Waited 3-4mins then other 2 meals arrived. All chicken...no lamb. As it turns my daughter did not like her Butter Chicken so swapped my would be lamb dish for hers, which she liked better. I chose not to wave anyone over as we agreed to swap her dish but my intention was to let server know when they would ask how food was, I infact ordered Lamb but it was fine. However, noone approached our table during mains. Restaurant not overly busy. Part of me even doubting if I said lamb clearly or just miscommunication. Finally our table was quickly cleared but honestly no interaction from waiter at all. I then had to ask a passing waitress for Bill. Again, intending to mention we ordered lamb. When Bill arrived we were actually charged for lamb...so I did order it! This time when a gentleman appeared to take payment he just put card machine down and walked to the side with no interaction with us at all. At this point, I felt bringing it up would be a waste and didn't feel welcomed. At no point we were asked if we enjoyed the meal or any civil interaction. Once payment taken off he went and when we exited we passed the male again but he didn't even look in our direction. Overall, very tasty food but after starters, literally no interaction with our table at all and clearly got our main protein wrongMore

Handi's management was very accommodating in setting up dinner in advance for our group of 16 in a private room. Great array of menu choices. Service by our waitress was outstanding. Food was delicious. Prices were great. All-in-all a very, very positive experience.

Went as a family initially going to a different restaurant, which fortunately was closing. It was a Sunday evening approx 21.00 hrs. My wife son and 2 grandchildren were welcomed in. While looking at the menu, we were given a sample of a starter, which...was delicious. We all had poppadoms, dips, and starters. The adults had mains with different breads, which were all excellent. Excellent food and service. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend it.More

My trip was very disappointing. My husband, friends and family have all been to Handi before and have loved it. Today was my first and last visit unfortunately. The start of our meal was great. We both thoroughly enjoyed our starters of Chilli Calamari and...onion bahjis. They were well cooked and tasty. It sadly went downhill from there. Our main meals arrived and we then waited almost 5 minutes for our naan bread to arrive. We waited patiently only to be disappointed. My chicken was on the pink side. It might just be me being fussy buy I don't want to see pink on any of my chicken bits. I really, really dislike complaining but I told the waiter I couldn't eat my meal, as in my opinion it wasn't cooked properly. Off he went with my plate and someone else reappeared with my plate some 5 minutes later. During this time, I got to watch my husband eat his dinner. When my plate returned, it had the previously cut pieces of chicken on it, showing signs of pink chicken. The gentleman explained that they cook the chicken on the skewer and its temperature tested. So it's good to eat. He eventually offered to make a new plate. By which time my husband would be finished. I kindly declined and explained that I couldn't eat the chicken. I was left with the cold plate with pink bits of chicken and away he went laughing at me. Then bill arrived and I had to pay for the meal that wasn't eaten. The restaurant was busy, waiters were minimum and I left feeling embarrassed. Tables beside had obviously overheard the conversations. Overall, it was a poor experience and poor customer service. I should never had the dirty plate left in front of me for a start. I won't be back.More

Just managed to get booked into this place on a Saturday night before the 6:30pm rush. Made a mistake on number of guests, but the staff were great in helping to accommodate our error. All of our food was absolutely fabulous. I had Chicken Shaslhlik...(as recommended to me by the waitress) and the haggis fritters. Highly recommended place to eat, make sure to book.More

Our second visit when visiting folks in Fife. Delicious food and the quality of ingredients (whole fresh ground spices in the onion Bhakti, tender and succulent lamb) has made this a firm favourite when up here. And prices are incredibly reasonable. Highly recommend the onion...Bhaji and the railway lamb. The pistachio kulfi and the crème brûlée desserts were delicious. best kulfi I’ve had.More
