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.

Arranged for a delivery, it came 1.5 hours later after chasing several times, the person on the phone was unhelpful and couldn't care less. And to top it off the food was cold. Will not go back.

I have to say I think this place has really upped it's game. I've been here twice in the past couple of months with a group of school mums for a night out. Both times the place has been packed out and everyone's meal has...been excellent. Hot, plentiful, tasty. I've lived in buckhurst Hill for 10 years and we had visited the restaurant years ago and not been very impressed but it is honestly well worth a visit now. The salmon sula was beautiful.More

Ordered a takeaway in advance. It arrived over half an hour late and was cold. Had to call twice to chase the order. Won’t order from here again.

Visited the Coriander Buckhurst Hill many times. Always a good meal. On this occasion I went with 4 friends. Food was still good but staff were pretty rude and got the hump when we ordered more food. Also, although restaurant had been refurbished, there was...cobwebs hanging from the light above our table. Think next time I’ll go to the Temple in Woodford or Spice in Barkingside.More

After a bad experience, at first there was the online response looking to do damage limitation by inviting us back. The after logging on to Trip Advisor for the first time in a while I saw this message below which appears to be from Coriander...as you cane see below in the private message, "could I suggest that you don't visit or order from here again...instead, go back to Sheesh..." In my review I already made it clear that after rude service that I was never going back to you so, your point is what exactly as I had already made this decision? In badly run organisations, a bad attitude usually comes from the top. You want to go "go back to Sheesh", I have never been there, not on my list of places to go. Go away and hide behind your keyboard because you would never have spoken to me like that if I were in front of you! In order to post this, the date of my visit was the last time I drove in to the Buckhurst Hill Station car park, not to visit Coriander Here below is the private message sent to me on the Trip Advisor message facilty If you're "two polite professionals with a high disposable income"...could I suggest that you don't visit or order from here again...instead, go back to Sheesh for overpriced spicy dishes which have the equivalent of sullen and uncooperative staff but with infinity mòre instagrammable opportunities!More

3 of us went last night and boy, I wish we hadn't bothered! We waited over an hour for a pretty average main course. One of the dishes was forgotten and brought to the table AFTER we had finished the one course that we had...ordered. All dishes were brought out at staggered intervals not together. The waiters were busy but couldn't have cared less. Getting their attention, it's easier to tame a wild animal, good luck that's all I can say. Only waiter was wearing a mask, under his nose, the rest had nothing. No temperature checks, no hand sanitizing, no track and trace, no precautions against COVID visible at all. Soooo noisy because the tables are so close together it's a joke. If you want a long wait for pretty average food and put yourself at possible risk then crack on!More

We have eaten in the Coriander for years and we’re so happy with the eased restrictions to be able to return. The Coriander is without a doubt the best local Indian in the area, the hardest part is choosing what to have. We visited recently...on a Tuesday after work and yet again had a great meal. Their onion bhajis are always crisp and full of flavour. My husband just almost always has their chicken jalfrezi; no other local restaurant comes close. I had a beautiful prawn dish and we shared rice and a garlic naan. I could recommend many other dishes from their menu, we genuinely never have anything other than a great meal here. Staff are great and remember who we are. What more could you want from your local Indian restaurant???More

We've been visiting this restaurant for the best part of eight years and quite frankly, I'm astonished at some of the reviews left concerning the staff employed at The Corriander. If you'd like the staff here to 'pander to you'...or perhaps engage and indulge you...in polite and meaningless 'smalltalk' - to make you feel better about yourself - then you've probably come to the wrong place. Does this make the staff employed curt? unpleasant? unwilling to please? No. It absolutely does not. The one thing that I can vouch for here is that over eight years - it's been hugely consistent. They serve (fresh) decent "curry-house" food which is served efficiently, packed full of flavour by staff who really do care. If that's not enough for you...then go somewhere else. As you can probably tell, reviews written by the woke genetation, absolutely infuriate me.More

Poor service from the most miserable looking staff I have ever had the misfortune of being served by. Dont you guys ever smile? The food was below average with far too much sugar in all the dishes. Certainly not authentic Indian cuisine for sure. Overall...a very disappointing experienceMore

I have been a few times in the past month as it isn’t easy to get to a good Indian restaurant from where I live. I have ordered something different each time as I didn’t enjoy the previous dish. How is this for brilliant; last...night I mentioned that the jalfrezi the week earlier was sweet and that I had to leave all of the meat .....the response, well you ordered the wrong dish didn’t you. You obviously didn’t order a jalfrezi. What a bunch of jokers. A few years ago this place used to be good, no surprise the rating is on the slide. If you are reading this and looking for a good Indian meal in the area, use Ghandi or temple, not these legendsMore

'This is a good old Curry House. Next to the tube station. Staff are very accommodating food is generous portions and well cooked. What can you say except all you could want from a local Indian restaurant. Reasonably priced, and I like that service charge...is not automatically added to the bill (well done Coriander!)More

We have been regular takeaway users of Coriander for the last 5 years, however recently we have found the quality of the food is poor at the weekend and so have been opting for midweek meals instead. This evening after missing an item from my...order, having placed me on hold twice whilst they took it, they then blamed me for their mistake with a very unfriendly tone. When the item was subsequently delivered (after I had finished the rest of my meal) I was rather rudely told by the delivery driver I must pay for it “take it or leave it”. Whilst the request for additional payment was not entirely unreasonable it was clearly not the best customer service following their error and particular cheeky after he had received a tip on the original delivery; with so many curry houses in the area we definitely wont be ordering from them again!More
