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.

We've been a few times, normally with friends with allergies (from onions to nuts) or our vegan friends, and every time everyone is very well fed and looked after. The food is delicious and everyone is always really lovely!

This is the best ‘Indian’ you could hope to have within the Somerset area. The staff are always helpful and friendly, the room decor is pleasant, but most importantly the food is absolutely excellent. The owners cook everything from fresh local produce with extreme care....Once you try the mixed platter starter you will go back for more every time. The choice of chicken, veg/paneer or lamb for your main is outstanding, all accompanied with rice, dal and Bombay potato. I fully recommend the fig nan bread on the side. This is a restaurant not to be missed.More

An absolute gem of a restaurant. After meaning to visit for some time, we finally visited this evening for an early dinner, and it did not disappoint. The staff were friendly and welcoming, but in a calm and relaxing way - it was the perfect...level of service. The food was incredible - you could tell it had been cooked fresh and each dish/side (we had the butter chicken, rice, dahl, bombay potatoes and a naan) carried its own unique flavour and spice combination. Really appreciated the small(er) menu - some restaurants can feel overwhelming with the amount of choice, but here you really felt as though each dish had been perfected and was loved by the chefs for it to feature on the menu. We will definitely be back. Thank you!More

Enjoyed our third meal here and it really is delicious food served by lovely staff in a lovely atmospheric restaurant. Starters are great - there aren't many choices of main (one lamb, one chicken and one vegetarian) but what you get is fantastic. There aren't...any vegan main courses on the menu but if you ask in advance they will cook one for you - they have cooked me a fantastic aubergine dish. All mains come with rice, Bombay aloo and tarka dhal. The naan breads are delicious and my partner said the home-made pistachio kulfi is amazing. My only slight complaint is that the wines aren't that great but if you ask they are happy for you to bring your own and pay corkage...or you can have a beer! Definitely worth the trip from Bristol for a curry - it's that good!More

Exceptional food, good quality, friendly and efficient staff. Last evening we had a wonderful time, over 20 of us saying farewell to a good friend and colleague. Chan and the team did everything possible to make things go smoothly, considering all requests, and ensuring we...were all catered for. We could not have wished for anything better, the food was exceptional, sufficient and there were smilies all round! If you too want a great Indian meal, value for money, but not at the expense of quality you now know where to go. A big thanks.More

Delicious food. Every dish was so flavourful. Mains are served with rice, Bombay aloo and lentil daal, all of which were lovely and an enjoyable touch that you wouldn’t get in other Indian restaurants. Staff were lovely. I’m already looking forward to going back so...I can try more of their starters.More

Spur of the moment evening, checked google and ended up here. I have walked past this place hundreds of times, and didn’t realise it was a restaurant! We didn’t book, arrived not long after opening. They found us a table -we were lucky as within...30 minutes it was packed. Lovely decor, friendly and efficient staff. Loved the food, authentic and minimalistic menu, cooked perfectly. We will be back (next time we will be sure to book first!)More

Fantastic food anc the staff were excellent. Would recommend the platter to start - a real opportunity to sample some brilliant flavours. The prawns were one of the best starters I've had. A word too,for the chutneys, please bottle and sell, the pineapple Chutney -...I want more The mains were excellent- we had the lamb and the chicken. Both were cexceptional. Really nice to have the rice, bombay potato and dahl as part of the meal. The dahl and naan were a combination made in heaven.

Had the most wonderful meal at the weekend, in I believe one of the best Indian restaurants I’ve ever been to (and I’ve been to a lot!) typically a Indian menu is a list of 50 items, not here, the menu is stripped now to...5/6 started and three main courses. Less is certainly more, everything was delicious. It felt like we were in there kitchen having a family meal. We were only in Taunton for one night but we hit the jackpot! The dessert too was a marvel - Rose ice cream was amazing. Speaking to the owner you can really see her passion for food. Try itMore

Booked a few hours before, and glad we did, only place we saw in Taunton full. The food and service here is second to none, it’s not your normal curry house, it’s a bit different with only a small menu. Don’t pass this by, the...atmosphere is great, and food is truly so tasty and fresh.More

Superb Food and simply outstanding service... The decor and ambience just unrivalled, we visit once a year and this restaurant has never disappointed... Though, a fairly short menu, the food is always cooked to perfection... It is safe to say that Guddi and Gikki is...one of the best restaurants in Taunton... Really recommend a try!More
