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.

The food and service here are second to none in Bedford. There is a terrific range of options, catering for all sorts of preferences. The Cauliflower 65 is just delicious. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning very soon!

Thank you Shuma and your family for the most wonderful evening! We haven't been able to get out much recently so were more than delighted to find this restaurant. The fusion street food was innovative and beyond delicious. Every dish tasted fresh, with different textures...and spices. It really was the best Indian meal ever, and I have eaten a lot of Indian food! As soon as the popadoms arrived we knew we were in for a treat. The homemade lemon pickle was so unusual, tart and scrumptious! The other tapas style dishes which came next were all memorable! I can't describe how delicious all the flavours were. I just wish we could have tried more! Despite being repleat I had to try one of the desserts...all of which were an interesting twist on original Indian sweets. I chose the carrot and beetroot halwa and, oh my, it was sublime! It looked so pretty and tasted even better! We really can't thank Shuma enough for making our evening so memorable. It was so special and despite living in Surrey we will be back soon!More

Chaat Haus Wow !!! What an experience 😍 From the moment i walked in , i felt like i had been transported to a far away magical place. The vibes in this restaurant is something unique , you feel like you have left the city...and taken a step back in time to the city of Kolkatta. The fact that they were busy on a Thursday night added hustle and bustle like an Indian City to the already magical ambience. The food i had was as amazing as you would expect from a chef of Anwar Hussain’s renown. Watching him cook is soooo mesmersing as well , his spoon is like a wand , swishing away at all the different spices , herbs and meats, eventually producing dishes that are just soooo Moorish 😋 If you have not been yet , then seriously you need to go , as the experience you will have here , you will not get anywhere else. P.s i had The Manchurian Chicken 😋 Firecracker Chicken 😋 Kashmiri Rogan. 😋😋😋 Beef Khala Bhuna. 😋😋😋 South Indian Dall 😋😋😋 Roti and Rice 5 Stars All Round.More

Excellent menu lots of choices for all appetites! The food flavours is incredible! It can be a long wait at peak times but the wait is always worth it! There’s nothing close to the authentic flavours of chat and curry choices here in Bedford. Beautiful...decor and very polite waiting staff. Planning my next visit already!More

I have visited Chaat Haus since 2022. You can't find any where else that has the food, the staff and the atmosphere. Great menu with plenty of choice for all dietary needs. Authentic food, great flavours with a wide range of choice. Highly recommended.

The food is amazing with lots of choice the service is just about ok but the booking system on their web site is a waste of time, I’ve tried to use it twice now and had to ring 24 hours after doing the booking only...to find out that they are fully booked, very poor! they seem to pay no attention to the online booking system my advice is call them by phone well in advance as the food is amazing and worth the effort of getting a tableMore

What a little gem of a restaurant The Chaat House is . We are blessed with plethora of Indian restaurants in Bedford and I can say that in my humble opinion this is the best . Friendly staff , great atmosphere restaurant and top quality...food what more can you ask . See a dish and think it’s too hot just ask your waiter and they will make sure it’s toned down a bit or vice versa . You can ask how it’s cooked , what it tastes like etc etc . This Bedford restaurant is going from strength to strength but make you book especially at busy times .More

This has to be the best curry house I have been to for a long time. The whole menu offered modern, fresh and imaginative food, which was exquisitely prepared and presented with flair. Their lemon chutney freshly made that day was delicious, sparkling the tastebuds...ready for the dishes to come. The naans unbelievably light and fluffy to soak up the rich, velvety lamb and lentil dalcha with its deep earthy spices. The Persian rice delicately spiced and airy again perfect to absorb the sauces. Superb! Chatting to the knowledgeable staff who were attentive yet unobtrusive we learnt Bedford was a place where the owner grew up and returned to start a family restaurant. They have reimagined featuring dishes from South East Asia and created modern, unfussy but yet intricate with the depth of natural flavour. We can’t wait to return!More

We ordered a takeaway from Chaat Haus. They are collection only so we hesitated to order but, once we were eating, all doubt melted away with the potpourri of delicious tastes and aromas. Everything was absolutely delicious and that meal ranks as one of the...best Indian meals we've ever eaten anywhere in England and Europe. The puri were perhaps not a puffy as they could have been but they were still tasty and, like the rest of the meal a treat to eat. Next time we'll sit in and try some different items from the menu. In a word - Wow!More
