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.

Service and food were both excellent, staff were friendly and helpful, relaxed pace, reasonable priced. Could not find fault if I tried. I wish I could remember the names of the dishes we had.

We stayed a few nights in Pickering and this restaurant was recommended to us. Excellent food and service and we would visit again if we return to Pickering.

A great selection of dishes and really good genuine service. The Shami kebab starter was nice & spicy, and the chicken dhansak & rice really tasty. A lovely meal & perfect evening out. Thank you.

Visited here this evening and without doubt an amazing restaurant. There’s a vast selection of dishes to choose from. The staff were all welcoming, friendly and attentive. Every dish looked superb. We had the popadoms and pickles followed by king prawn korai and hot chicken...jalfrezi with nans and vegetable rice….. amazing. Great portion sizes, on all the dishes. Staff made sure everything was super fresh and clean, making sure as guests left, the tables were made perfect for the next. Definitely worth a visit!!!!More

First thing to review is the service, attentive, polite not pressured, this applies to all three waiters on duty. The food was fantastic too, really great poppadoms and pickle tray, we didn't have a starter, certainly wouldn't have managed the main course if we had....Main course, I had the chicken shashlik korai, the waiter said that's medium, do you want it a bit hotter, yes please, medium to hot, I couldn't describe how I wanted it, if I tried, but the chef got it spot on, my partner enjoyed her food too, thanks for a great meal and experience guys, it was an optional 10% service charge on the bill, but you all deserved itMore

Looks small from the outside but the restaurant is very spacious inside, and the waiters were very friendly. We were seated straight away even though we hadn’t booked. It was a Wednesday night and it did get a little busy so I would recommend booking...in case. The food was really nice and the naan bread was huge. Definitely would recommend visiting here if you’re in Pickering.More

Warm welcome, our online booking had been received and we were showed to our table. Clean fresh ambience. Lovely white linen table napkins, nice weight to the cutlery too. Great service, attentive but not over the top. The timings between the order being taken and...the different courses arriving was spot on. Not too quick and not too slow. Excellent food, the prawn puree starter was delicious, crispy pappadam, tasty pickle tray. We were going to have two trays but our waiter kindly suggested that one would suffice. The main courses were as described, the hot were hot and the spice levels added great flavour, good rice and delicious Bombay aloo. The wine was very reasonably priced, a bottle of each red and white Rioja at £20 each. To end a refreshing complimentary limoncello shot and a very happy farewell. Really great evening thoroughly enjoyable.More

Having read most previous reviews we were expecting an adequate meal. The reality turned out to exceed our expectations - excellent food, cheerful, friendly and very efficient service. We were so impressed that we returned for another meal on a very crowded Saturday evening, and...again we were delighted. My wife particularly appreciated the section of the menu that specified a range of mild curries, whilst I was very pleased with the lamb pathia. We would not hesitate to eat there againMore

We went here three years ago and was very impressed but how things change! We were met with an abrupt welcome and was told to ‘sit over there’ - no welcomes and it felt like we weren’t expected even though we booked. The £16 combo...starter is a con - we each had a bland golf ball sized bhaji, a couple pieces of meat which were more fat and gristle and breaded potatoes which had no flavour. The meat in the main courses was very overcooked and chewy. The worst thing was the service. We were cleverly upsold 2 popadoms when ordering and the waiter said ‘with pickles’ and we said yes. Little did we know we’d get a 6 pots of pickle and were charged £4 for it. I said twice I felt we were misled and I didn’t want to pay all that for 2 popadoms, but both times the waiters just argued with me. Poor customer service and not willing to address issues. Then they had the cheek to add a service charge which was not obvious on the menu! This place was half empty at 8.30pm on a Saturday night - speaks volumes.More

This was our first visit to this restaurant despite living locally. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is spotlessly clean, the staff friendly and helpful & the food excellent with plenty of choice.

Pickering No1 Indian Restaurant, Authentic indian good with a burst of flavours and all freshly prepared. Restaurant is clean, Staff are well dressed and very helpful, nothing is too much to ask for and always willing to help whether it be a query regarding the...menu or a general question. Food was loved by all and to top it of we got offered a complimentary drink at the end of our meal. Absolutely amazing, one of the best indians we’ve visited and will definitely visit again when in the area. Thank you for the hospitality 5⭐️More
