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.

Highly recommend, the food was absolutely delicious a huge portion each, I only could eat less than half but got a to go bag so I can enjoy it again tomorrow. Staff was very friendly, coming up to our table every now and then asking...if things were OK if we needed anything else. Unlike some restaurants were staff comes up far to often asking our we enjoying our food while having a mouthful. Atmosphere was relaxing definitely a 10 out of 10 for us, we will be going back.More

Have eaten many times here in the past and always been very happy. This time we had a takeaway which was very bland and disappointing. Lacking in flavour, spice and colour. Even worse, both of us went down with an attack of Delhi belly for...a few days afterwards! How the mighty have fallen!More
