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.

Blue Bay was recommended by a colleague of my partner. And I'm glad it was. The food was simply outstanding. We were greeted straightaway just after opening. The restaurant is decorated beautifully and the ambience is excellent. The menu is full of the traditional curries...as well as a number of specials and unusually different curries. Will definitely be back and we hope to make this out regular curry place- will even try it as a takeaway! 5-stars to the team! Keep up the great work!More

Naz & the guys at Blue Bay took on the challenge of catering for 28 of the Sedgley Tigers Under 16 Rugby Team players & coaches!! No small undertaking! After a tough match, in which they were victorious, the lads were ready for a victory...feast!! Upon arrival at Blue Bay the welcome was magnificent, with drinks & delicious starters brought out with military efficiency!! The mixed starter dishes were fantastic & gave the lads the opportunity to sample starter dishes that they may not have ordered themselves (but will next time!); they all went down a treat with the players & coaches alike! To follow the starters 6 dishes were laid out in a buffet style arrangement, accompanied by rice & endless naan bread!! The buffet style again gave the lads the chance to sample multiple dishes…… & to go back for more!!!! Every dish was prepared to absolute perfection with a great variety of flavours and strength of heat, to suit all palates! When the head chef came out to see how everything was going he received a rapturous cheer & round of applause!! The whole experience was sensational from start to finish!! We cannot thank Naz & all the guys at Blue Bay enough; needless to say we will all be back time & time again! Massive Thanks from us all!! 🏉 +🍛 = 😁 👏👏👏More

We visited here with friends. First time visit. We were early and given the warmest of welcomes. One of the owners sat and explained the menu asking what type of Indian food we normally chose. He then gave us some recommendations As a result of...this we chose different dishes. The food was absolutely delicious. The starters were plentiful and the main courses were just so tasty. It is a fantastic restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food cooked exactly the way you want. I asked for fewer spices. If you are in the area pleae go. You wont regret it. Highly recommended.More

Have lived in the area forever and never visited this gem of a restaurant before. Lovely friendly service (big hello to our waiter Muksy who was brilliant) and delicious food all freshly cooked. Will be coming back time and time again and very glad we...found it (PS one of the few Indian restaurants open in Prestwich/Whitefield on a Monday night)More

Not really a buffet. Poppadoms were served on the table to start off. Then we were all given a plate of starters each which compromised of a filo pastry chicken samosa, onion bhaji, spicy chicken wing, a seek kebab, a broccoli pakora and a bit...of salad. Then came the main course which was the 'buffet' part you could say. A plate of small naan breads were rationed for us and placed on our table. The only dishes that we could help ourselves to were about three choices of chicken and lamb curry, two choices of vegetable and one choice of rice which was pilau. That's it! I would totally not recommend this place if you're looking for a buffet.More

Where do I start with this review. I came from London on a day trip to Manchester and found this gem of a restaurant in the heart of Manchester. From the minute I entered I received a very warm welcome from the staff and felt...very comfortable throughout. The food was absolutely exceptional, the variety of dishes was impressive. The presentation of the food was unique and quirky with a modern twist. The portion size was very generous for the dishes. And most importantly the flavour of the food was exceptional and very tasty which is the main thing. Even the deserts were nice, I recommend the fresh cookie dough and ice cream to cleanse your palate. I took some pictures of the food (starters, mains, desert) to share with all of you.More
