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.

Wow! What a place to have a curry! And everything else they sell! Honestly the best place I've ever eaten Indian food at. Not your normal same three Currys( tikka.korma,Rogan) they have genuine authentic Currys all cooked to order! A Fantastic selection of vegan/ vegetarian...options which just as if not better than the main menu. Great flavour , great use of spices . The starters patta chat is to die for ! . I could go on and on at how lovely the food and team are that are here. Very welcoming and friendly . And fantastic food !More

Visited on a Thursday evening. Nice ambience and tasty curry—one of the best peshwari naans I’ve had for a while too. Friendly and attentive staff. Would recommend and will be returning.

We regularly eat at Mattancherry because of the quality of the food and the welcome we get every time we visit. Gopi is front of house, and he is great if you need advice on new dishes to try. I absolutely love the tandoori salmon,...subtle, tasty and delicious. My husband is vegetarian and he always has lots of lovely dishes to choose from. The South Indian dishes are a very welcome change to the usual heavier Indian fare available locally.More

Fabulous- our 1st visit and we were not disappointed- great welcome and table service was really good and she talked us through the menu options, we all went for something different, nicest thing was that you actually got plenty of meat & not just sauce...as some places do, had the lamb railway curry, the lamb was so tender & breads were just divine - will be back for sureMore
