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.

After reading reviews my wife and I decided to go to the Viceroy for dinner. We recently returned to the UK after living for 23 years in New Zealand and Australia. Since our return we have found British cuisine to be rather bland, having little...seasoning and more like a children's menu lacking in taste and any vegetables, so went to the Viceroy hoping to have a meal with some spice and taste. When we sat down the waiter asked do we want any popadoms and dips which are usually complimentary when eating in New Zealand establishments, so we said yes, only to find they were £5 when we read the menu. I ordered "SAMOSA" for my starter which when I had eaten them before was a pastry pyramid usually about 4 - 5 inches high made of thick flaky pastry filled with vegetable/meat. When it came I got 2 small triangles of flat filo pastry on a bed of lettuce. I ordered the "BANGLA BAD BOY" along with some onion pilau rice which was quite hot but not the hottest I've ever had. My wife usually has a Korma which was missing from the menu. We asked the waiter which dish was the nearest to a Korma so he suggested "CHICKEN APELA" along with some plain rice. We took the advice of the waiter and ordered. When it arrived it looked like a bowl of pumpkin soup. She tasted it and found it to have zero spice and had a mild, sweet coconut flavour. If we had read the menu properly instead of asking the waiter for advice we would not have ordered such a bland, tasteless meal. If British people can't eat hot/spicy food, don't go to Asian restaurants. We will not be returning.More

Got a takeaway from here a few times now and sadly will not be going back. I've tried a few Indians in Carlisle and this has been really bad. I've given it a fair few chances. No more. Staff are so unhelpful too.

First had a meal here 2 years ago & the food was excellent. Had a meal with friends on Saturday evening, food was really poor. Chicken pakora was sliced round discs, not fresh chicken & deep fried in really fatty batter. My South Indian garlic...lamb was absolutely crap & bland, the lamb was (if you could find any) small diced cubes. Nan bread was under cooked and poor quality bread. £10 for 6 popadoms & a few dips 🤷🏼‍♂️ Was exactly had happened to this place? Won’t be back!More

Very disappointed with the whole set up. The decor was dingy and dark with poor lighting. As for the food, that was generally mediocre and the staff didn’t understand when we asked for some side plates for popadoms and dips. However, they did understand the...word bill. Won’t be going back.More

Delicious meal. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff they were very friendly and informative. I don't like chunks of tomatoes in my dishes so I usually stick to same thing each time, however they advised me on what dishes I could have I...couldn't decide so they brought me half and half! Absolutely delicious was nice to try something new. Food was piping hot and very tasty will definitely be back.More

Had some superb meals in this restaurant...but not my last two. I had a Chicken Tikka Madras takeaway...and it was awful..very watery , lacking in flavour and the chicken was the smallest pieces ever. Had the same dish the following week, informed them about the...amount of water in the previous weeks dish and they jist said that they would let the chef know to make it more thick..which it was...but the flavour was still bland. Not the Viceroy i know..very dissapointed.More

The absolute ‘go to’ in Carlisle for this style of food. We regularly use the viceroy for take away and meals, we wouldn’t dream of going to a different location. So good.
