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.

It was appalling to see quarter plates kept near the main course buffet area rather than a standard size plate. the plate size was so small that one could barely take more than 2 dishes at a time. When I asked the reason, I was...told that it was to reduce food wastage. Reducing food wastage by giving half the size of a plate in a buffet restuarant defeats the purpose of hospitality, convinience and even basic courtesy to be given to a guest. There can be other polite ways to do that but to go to such a measure totally ruined my experience. Additionally., the food quality has gone down. The veg main course curries were not to a good taste.More

Went last night for a friend’s 30th celebration and there was around 40 of us. The table was dirty with only a fork and a spoon set up. As for the food, was absolute garbage especially considering it was £40 for two of us on...a Friday evening(!!!) plus a pint and a coke for £8. The food was tasteless and the curries reminded me of the Uncle Ben’s out-of-a-jar stuff. Though it was admittedly edible enough for me to have a feed plates trying to try out everything, I ended up leaving a fair bit of it on my plate. The environment was crowded and screaming kids everywhere. If you want a decent, relaxing meal then Slice of India is really not where you ought to go.More

We arrived ten minutes before our booking and we're seated immediately. Very lovely girl on reception who explained how it worked. The server arrived promptly to take our drinks orders, then we tried the starters. Most were fabulous, my favourite was the chilli cauliflower -...outstanding! Hubby loved the chickpeas. All were hot, and starters were being replenished as they got low. They don't appear to do a massive quantity each time, which makes sense if you want to keep the quality of the food. For my taste, the paneer had far, far too much cardamom and it was unpleasant to eat. The mains were very good. Hubby had the lamb dishes and he was very happy with the quality of the meat. He also had the fish curry which he enjoyed. Both of us were hugely impressed with the rice, but felt the naan was a little dry. The Vege curries were great, especially the saag aloo! Wow! However, again the paneer was dominated by far too much Cardamom rendering it inedible. The fresh noodles were outstanding. The chef cooking did it to absolute perfection! He was polite and friendly, as we're all of the staff. Desserts were plentiful, lots to choose from. Highly recommend the Gulab Jamon and the mango rice pudding- luscious! I really felt compelled to write a positive review as the previous reviews seem very unfair. For a buffet , this is fantastic! Of course there are some dishes that weren't outstanding/ not at all to my taste, but there were loads that were. For what we ate, and the excellent, friendly service we received, this was incredible value. We both left very, very full and very happy. This is the first time we have eaten here and will definitely return and recommend. Hubby is British Indian and over half the diners in tonight we're Asian origin, so I'm not sure at all where the other reviewer was eating at?More

I used to love going here, despite living an hour away. This was our first visit for some time, though, and I think it was probably our last. The quality of the food is really poor now. It's just not worth the cost and the...long journey. The staff were brilliant. Service was good. The starters were nice. Desserts were also alright but there's very little to choose from now. The chocolate they now use in the chocolate fountain is awful. Really cheap and nasty. The stir-fry was burnt but undercooked. The guy didn't use enough oil and didn't cook it for long enough. The curries were really bad. The sauce is alright, but the meat was awful. One contained only bones and bits of skin. No actual meat. The others had really chewy, rubbery pieces of chicken. The lamb was just fat. They were really horrible. How can you eat that? The curries are the main meals and they can't use proper meat. And that's what you're paying for. I don't know why businesses cut back like this because why on earth would anyone go again after a poor meal like that? Whenever we used to go here, you'd always see lots of Indian families in large groups, but I don't recall seeing any on this occasion. That speaks volumes. I don't think it's worth the hour's drive for us anymore, so we'll give this a miss in future. Which is a shame because it used to be amazing.More

Gone downhill. Staff on reception were lovely and welcoming. Served drinks quickly and again staff were polite and overall good. Food was awful. Starters were dry and tasteless. We had 4 curries and none were that great. We had been before over a year ago...and has really enjoyed it but the food was nowhere near as good. It always did feel a bit like a canteen but had been ok when food was good. Unless reviews improve we would not go back.More

First time and last time I will come here. First issue was parking I needed a disabled space and cars and a van were using them without a badge displayed. The staff were very nice and showed us to our tables amd explained what to...do. Table was disgraceful dirty and basic with a napkin and a spoon and fork, where was the knife ???? The bench was falling to pieces and wobbly. The food was dire the onion bhajis were dry and Luke worm. The rice was dry the curries although had about 8 different dishes I was disappointed there was no madras. The chips were also luke warm and when I asked for salt he showed me the ketchup. To sum it up the place is in urgent need of redecorating, a good clean and the food quality requires huge improvement.More

The food was fantastic, excellent value for money and the staff were very accommodating and helpful, especially with dietary requirements and allergies. I'd highly recommend Slice of India for anyone considering...on-site catering. Thank you all for your hard work and for helping to make an excellent weekend for us!More

Quality of the food on par with ala cart. Can't fault it barring few dishes. We try to go once a week at least. They can perhaps reduce the price a bit as its bit pricey.

Won a voucher so booked a time slot as this was our first time at this restaurant. Dining area is huge with well spaced out tables, very good decor and the staff do an excellent job at clearing tables and preparing them for the next...customers. Buffet is very good with lots of choice, starters, mains and desserts and you can keep eating until you can take no more. I would have liked some background music to muffle the sound of plates/cutlery being cleared away but all in all a very good value tasty meal to be had here.More

Not been in a good 7+ years and had fond memories of the place however after visiting last week I was dissapointed with the experience. Myself and my wife visited in the hope of expanding my wife's choice of curries from the safe Korma and...Tikka masala. The starters was actually half decent hence the 2 stars, i enjoyed the chikken tikka in particular. The mains however was very poor, i tried several curries, alot ive not heard of so cant mention the names but didn't enjoy one. The lamb rogan josh was very poor and tasted of lamb fat. The korma myself and my wife both instantly took a disliking too, how is it so bad? Its a simple coconut based curry. Some of the staff did look unprofessional, one staff in particular, a young lad (cook) in the cooking stations stood on his phone without a care in the world, not really a professional look when people are paying to eat a meal. On the other hand, like others have said its like a 2/3* all inclusive buffet. My free refills of soft drink was quickly refilled just as I quickly returned to the chicken tikka starter section. All in all, very dissapointed and went to morrisons up the road after around 45 minutes total time in the building to get something else to eat to finish the night and wont return unless theres a major change.More
