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 disgusted by delivery service Saturday 6th January phoned order at 4.50pm which was all good called back at 6 o'clock to be told order was on its way then had to call back at 6.25pm to be told order was still on its way...having been a regular customer for over 20 years can't believe the level of service was not really offered any explanation of why it was taking so long & also no apology definitely will not be using in the future such a shame as food has always been so good.More

I hadn’t been in this restaurant for twenty years or so and I could see that the decor hasn’t changed much, if at all, since then……..the walls are pretty grubby and could do with more than just a lick of paint. We started with Pakora...which was a bit dry, not sure if they either don’t give you a sauce with it or they just forgot……next was mutter paneer and a biryani……a bit bland for both of them……..it’s a bit of a shame I really wanted to enjoy their food but you can get better nearby for probably cheaper……More

I've ordered two takeaways from here recently, and both times the meals were brilliant. But both times, once when I was picking up, and the other when it was getting delivered, we've been left waiting for our food. The food is brilliant so I can...understand they are busy. But please try give more realistic pickup/delivery times, or at least chuck us some free poppadoms for waiting! Great food, could do better on the service side, but easily rectified.More

Me and my partner found the place of google and saw the reviews. We were very warmly welcomed. The gentleman was very polite and friendly. We saw a wide variety of choice on the menu. Mainly focusing on chicken based dishes. The food came a...quick but reason time for it to be cooked with care. The chicken was pure white and juicy. All food looked fresh and smelt great. The naan bread is the biggest I’ve seen. Can’t speak highly enough of the food. Best I’ve tasted. Very high recommend this restaurant.More

The food from here is great! They never disappoint! However, on a couple of occasions the driver has been really rude but I put it down to him maybe having a bad day…Nah, same again tonight! I open the door and say “hello”, no response,...he hands the bag over (doesn’t even look at you) and I say, “thanks very much” no response and he walks away ? What pi$$es me off, is that I have a locked gate as I have dogs (one of which is a pup) he walks out and leaves it wide open! It was closed when you came in it! Shut it, and lock it when you leave! If he doesn’t like his job, he should get a new one! He’s a rude, miserable man that shouldn’t be allowed near customers! Manners cost nothing, but he won’t be get any from me in future! Disgusted…More

This restaurant is a little gem behind an unassuming front. The welcome was very friendly and before long, the restaurant was completely full and new arrivals were being turned away. The menu is varied, with options for vegetarians and vegans. £9.95 for a delicious and...filling two course lunch is hard to beat. It was my first visit, but it won’t be my last.More

Purchased a takeout for 2 . Korma was amazing. Garlic nan was inedible. Chicken bhuna. It really wasn't a bhuna. Not acceptable to have huge chunks of green peppers and onions. Any good chef should have this in the background of any dish and not...the 1st thing that hits you. If an Indian restaurant cannot produce something as simple as this...... we probably will try somewhere else now. The 45 minute round trip is just not worth it for a dish of bland vegetables instead of a chicken bhunaMore
