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.

I wanted a simple chicken tikka madras not once but several times but because I’m Asian they spice it up make it dry and Asian style!!! I’ve told them 100 times I want a normal chicken tikka madras with green chillies. But they can’t do...it!!!!! Its too hard for them infact it looks impossible to do but they don’t realise a Pl I want is normal madras . First time I went without them knowning I’m Asian was the best madras I’ve ever had and now they know I’m asian after they seen me it’s always a disaster. I spend minimum £25 on a takeaway every Sunday and it’s horrible, Worst thing is it’s not even hot it’s just taste of a dry curry with heavy uncooked spices. Never again stay away if ur asian!!! We used to have ruchi and There is no such thing as Asian style madras I mean why the hell would u order a ridiculous curry like that Asian style. I will call them on Tuesday wen they open. Not happy!!!More

Visit Thamin often after trying it once about 8 months ago. Never been to Sunday banquet as its not my thing but visited during week qnd weekend plus often pick up a takeaway. The staff are fabulous, so friendly , helpful and welcoming. They cater...for all I have requested. The prices are around average but the food is way above. Nothing is to much trouble. The mushroom rice and nann breads are so fresh and true ingredients. It's way up in the top Indian restaurants for me and my partner. Absolutely must visit .!!!More

Always decent food, no complaints there. It’s just that Why aren’t all staff and waiters wearing face masks, not sure of his name but the overweight waiter doesn’t seem to know there is a pandemic going on, touching people, leaning over people when serving and...even coughing in the restaurant, all without a mask. Please sort this before I return.More

Located on the A58 close to Stubble Hall (private residence) This restaurant does not look much from the roadside, but walk down the steps and through the door and the building transforms like Doctor Who's Tardis. Within you will be greeted by very polite and...cheerful staff Nice surroundings and quality food. resulting in a good nights dinningMore

So it’s highly rated. That’s good. High expectations? Perhaps. On the good side, the food was fine, portions were great. The masala was a bit runny / lots of sauce and very sweet (I was told). Staff were friendly although the trainee wanted to take...drinks and plates away before you’d finished. The space is quite bare. There’s not so much atmosphere. It’s trying to be minimalist but doesn’t quite hit that for me. The thing was that I found a stray chip in my karahi. No one at our table had chips. Where had it come from? I asked an experienced staff member who laughed saying they have the meals stacked up in the kitchen and it must have fallen in. Well what else could have fallen in? I thought. It didn’t give me excessive faith in the kitchen organisation and that makes you wonder about other things. I sure it’s fine but...More

Went here for the first time last Thursday in a party of 11 to celebrate the birthday of our 9 yr old granddaughter. Venue chosen by her and good choice. A bit lacking in atmosphere - but it was 17:00!! Food was considered good by...everyone, if not exceptional, although I thoroughly enjoyed my dish - Afghani chicken(?)with a jalfrezi sauce, butter rice and paratha. Will certainly go againMore

The restaurant is decent, the staff are polite and the food is lovely. Twice now, the bill has been incorrect by an amount enough to buy a couple more mains. Wasn't impressed. Will stay clear for a while. Check. Your. Bill. When. It. Arrives.

Not been here for years. The place has not changed. The entrance is really not very inviting. Once in the lounge area is ok. the drinks are good. The food we had was fabulous. The seating area inside the restaurant is not great. I felt...like in a school hall. However the service was good and the food was. Would definitely get a takeaway.More
