We decided to order a rather large takeaway from The Don as our usual place was closed. Ordering was a COMPLETE nightmare, I follow a vegan diet for my health & have NEVER had an issue with any restaurant advising me with what I can...eat. I ordered all my usual bits & double checked that I could eat my choices. I was told no I couldn't eat the Onion Bhaji or the samosas. I quickly chose something else which ended up being awful, I ate one spoonful and left the rest. The gentleman on the phone did TRY to advise what I could eat but I was told yes then no then yes so didn't have much faith that the food I was ordering was Vegan. I was then told my order of over £100 could NOT be paid for over the phone & I'd have to pay cash. I found that very weird & as a result we all had to get money out. The food has seriously gone downhill from my visit in 2013, I didn't think anything of it. I really do hope the staff can be made aware of which of their dishes is suitable for different dietary requirements & I do hope the food equals itself out.More

Never come to this place, service is terrible and dont get me started on the drinks. Coke is just coloured water. Staff have no idea how to give customer service, I came out for a dinner and got it for breakfast it was over 2...and half hours of waiting still waiting. What ever the food tastes like the service has put me off, when I say I will never return . Staff cant even read what you order and have no idea what the food should look like. The food also came out cold and was just placed in a microwave. The waiter was unable to tell that I was female even with a chest of 36DD and called me sir. The food I ordered didn't taste that great and didn't have the main Ingredient which was garlic, therefore could not eat it, but the people I was out with did. If you want to eat at 9pm you must give them your order at 5pm, even with take away. This must be the 3rd time since this place has opened I have visited and its been the same all the time. Please do not visit bipash also same company.More

We have always enjoyed the great food here. A take out yesterday was a disappointment. The biriyanis were dry was nothing like what used to be nor the curries. Lamb Shudgonde had three dried pieces of lamb, We were so very sad because over the...years Don’s have always given us wonderful food. I do hope this is only a blip and our next delivery will be great. The delivery man was friendly and efficient.More

Great food and friendly service, but the prices are more London than a local Indian in the burbs...you have to add £3 for rice to most dishes that often cost over £13! It's just too expensive for what it is, so makes us visit them...less often. Budget at least £50 - £80 for a couple! And we really dislike them offering Shark...not cool and not in tune with the vibe of the area, which is literally packed with conservationists!! Keep the quality, drop the prices, include rice or bread with every main stop offering endangered species like Shark and you'll do twice the business.More

Ordered a delivery, it was an hour late which was an improvement from the last time we ordered (it never turned up and we were not contacted!). The food was cold and we were overcharged for the privilege!! Would not recommend to anyone!

I use this resturant for a weekly takeaway and i have lost count the amount of times they try and over charge on already expensive food and when you dispute it, they just say, oh sorry and charge you the correct price. Chaek your bill...because you will be over charged.More

Ordered a takeaway, got the chicken tikka pieces, and a masala sauce separate. I asked them if they would make the masala sauce spicy and they done it perfect. Chicken tikka is made with fillet strips,... the rice, naan and papadums also tasty and so...fresh. Great quality food. I even rang them back to thank the chef.More

I've been to this restaurant on many occasions, but last Thursday has made me think differently about eating there again. On entering the restaurants, none of the staff wore face masks on. We were directed to our seats and given menus (these hadn't been cleaned...either). Half way through eating, we noticed a member of staff cleaning up a table and wiped any remains of food with the used serviette that was left on the table by another party. He proceeded to put table mats and cutlery onto the table WITHOUT sanitising or cleaning this with disinfectant which is unacceptable. I cant fault their food as it is amazing. I would have given this a 5 star but because of their lack of keeping with the COVID guidelines has made me mark this down to 2 stars. Such a shame.More

We order from/visit The Don all the time - it is definitely the best curry restaurant in WGC. I particularly recommend the lamb rogon josh - the lamb is always so tender!
