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.

Excellent food as usual - my favourite is the Green Delight with lamb. A change in management / ownership has had a positive effect on the atmosphere - we were made very welcome, and it was nice to be in a busy restaurant. We will...be back soon!!More

We used to love Purple Mango, and I have fond memories of it being a bustling restaurant and great takeaway. However, things have changed dramatically, and not for the better. Last time we had a takeaway, the majority of the ordered chutneys did not arrive,...but we received two pots of mango chutney (not ordered). We received a miserable looking onion salad and half a broken poppadum (we had ordered and paid for 6). Our chicken dishes contained a few very dried-out pieces of chicken, that felt like they had been boiled for hours, and potatoes bulked most of our vegetable dishes. Nevertheless, we recognise everyone has less-than-good days, so tried it one more time last night. Even less meat this time, and what we had was tough. The lamb in our bhuna was well cooked, but little of it, and absolutely swimming in grease. Once again, our red sauce was substituted for mango chutney (not needed, or ordered). There were no complimentary poppadums (a staple of the restaurant, on big orders, in better times), our chapati did not arrive either. ALL the dishes-vegetarian, or otherwise, were heavily bulked-out with potato, even when we paid the extra £1.50 for 'mixed vegetables.' We are so disappointed to see a previously great restaurant go downhill this way, but we will not be using Purple Mango again, nor recommending it to anyone.More

We got a take away delivered. I think this could be the worst Indian food I’ve ever experienced. I really regret not returning the whole lot.

I’ve been out of the country for a year and missed a good Indian. Me & my mum spare of the moment decided to try the Tuesday Banquet. It did not disappoint, my only criticism is that I wish there was tons of leftovers that...I could have feasted on for days! My mum thought the Korma had a funny taste and I agree it wasn’t the best. But my lamb Balti….WOW Service is excellent, can’t fault the experience.More

King prawn puree start was amazing. Mango delight and keema rice was packed full of flavour. Staff always bring a smile to your face and make you feel really welcome. So glad this is my local.

17th Feb. Waiting for takeaway delivery, chased up after 1.5 hrs, told it was on its way. Chased up again at 2 hrs. Said system down, altho I had confirmation it was in kitchen at 18.28pm. Very disappointing. Won't be using them again. Refund given.

Executing first class, professional service whilst being casual and great fun to talk to. The food was absolutely spot on - completely delicious in fact, whilst fairly priced and well presented. The overall service was what made my first visit here quite special, and warranted...this review. I asked for straws for my younger siblings which they didn't have, which is not even a problem anyway... but a staff member actually went to the shop to buy straws for us without any prompting. Very kind, and thoughtful. Great food and lovely service from people who clearly care about what they do. It's an absolute must visit if you're in the area. Thank you again Purple Mango 🙏👊More
