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 Food was lovely, really tasty and fresh, and service by Naz was fantastic. We weren’t rushed and felt really welcome. It was a lovely experience and next time we visit we will be sure to go for a curry here.

I had the chicken shashlik bhuna made slightly spicy as recommended by our super attentive waiter, Naz. It was perfect. Really great service and a fabulous meal for 5 friends who only meet up occasionally. Would definitely return if coming back to Tewkesbury.

So I like to food at Chrystal Rivers in general and the staff are top knotch. Had booked a Christmas lunch for three I had an Asian meal and the other two had a traditional british Christmas dinner. My meal was good but the traditional...Christmas meals were very sad looking with tiny portions including the thimble of gravy. The pudding was served cold with lumpy custard. For the money paid I would of thought that there should of been more on the plate. Also it is not difficult to find out how a pudding should be served. Christmas dinner somewhere else next year.More

I was tempted to try this restaurant by the excellent value midweek offer. I had popadom with pickles, starter, main course and mushroom rice for £16. The quality of the food was very good and the service was exceptional. There was also no sign of...any service charge being applied despite this being referenced in other reviews. I would be happy to return here if in the area.More

Visited this restaurant with wife and Brother who was visiting from Canada. Wife is not usually a lover of spicy food, but very helpful waiter advised her on what was to be a perfect dish for her. Brother and I had Jalfrazi with rice, and...could not fault it. I LOVE my food but found the portions to be very generous, staff were very attentive, without being over bearing. Was a most enjoyable evening, Quite busy but certainly Not noisy, or crowded, Premises very clean and very pleasing decor. Prices were very reasonable. Will certainly go back, and would recommend to anyone looking for a pleasant and relaxed meal.More

We had a lovely Indian meal here. We had papadoms for starters which came with four different dips/sauces. I had a crispy chicken starter and chicken tikka masala with egg fried rice for main. We had nann bread as well which was really nice. Then...I had feraro rocher chocolate ice cream for dessert. All very tasty. We got a chocolate mint each at the end as well. There was a good mix of some English and Indian music in the background. The only negative was the bill which for the three of us came to £66! We probably ate too much! Other than that everything else was perfect.More

We were having a couple of drinks in a pub in the town so thought we'd pick up a takeaway from Crystal Rivers on way back. Ordered a couple of banquet meals on the website only to be called straight away to advise the banquet...meal wasn't available as was dine in only... Asked why it was available to order online if not available as takeaway (as I write this the option is still available and there is nothing to state that is only available to dine in...). Was then told I would have to pay the extra of £3.95 which I confirmed only to have to pay £6.40 when I arrived to collect?!?! Was given an estimated time of 30 mins but was still sat waiting an extra 10 mins when I got there Real shame as the food was fantastic but felt completely key down by the overall experienceMore

Just had a meal at this restaurant. We are visiting the area, so many Indian restaurants to choose from, so we just took pot luck, and my god I’m so glad the pot luck was there.

Hi, I ordered for a dinner party of 4. The food arrived 45 mins early when the guests hadn’t even arrived. I showed the delivery driver the required time and he took the goods back. When the food was redelivered it was barely warm and...needed reheating. I rang the restaurant to explain and they totally disagreed with me. This left me with dinner party guests and a microwave working overtime, not acceptable for what we paid. Seriously not happy with the restaurants attitude, it was their mistake not mineMore

This negative review is not about the food,which we all enjoyed,it's not about the service,which was also on point,it's about the service charge which was forced upon us. We told the waiter that we wanted the service charge removed,but we would like to round the...bill up to £50 to leave a tip. The waiter then informed the Manager / Owner / Partner,who came over and told us that the service charge was compulsory and that it was written on the menu. We couldn't see it on the menu,he then said it was on the back,we still couldn't see it,he then pointed it out to us. It was in the bottom left hand corner,you'd need the Hubble space telescope to see it........UNBELIEVABLE. I don't mind leaving a discretionary tip if the service merits it,however I do mind being forced to pay a service charge. To me,I'm subsidising the restaurant owners massive house and big Jag. It's his job to pay the waiters,not mine. Why am I paying good money for a meal and then being expected to pay the waiters wages,just because the owner is too immoral to put his own hand in his pocket and pay the waiters a decent wage. It's not fair and it's not right,and then on top of that,to be told that it's compulsory [ a bare faced lie ] really boiled my urine. We did discuss this issue for about 3-4 minutes,but I could see that he wasn't having any of it,so we just left. A disappointing end to a nice evening.More

Ate here for the first time this year after a so so visit last year. The food & service were excellent & we had a lovely time. The only reason for not giving 5* is the imposed service charge on the bill. This is not...mentioned anywhere prior to ordering that we noted. We always leave a tip but the enforcement has put us off going again for a while. If you need tips to cover costs then pop a little extra onto your charges. Customers have a right to remove the charge but I wonder what reaction they’d get if they tried? Not great is it.More
