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.

This was our first time to the Lina and it certainly won't be the last. The owner/chef was welcoming and the food was excellent, particularly the bread.

Today my son became the third generation of highly satisfied customer from our family at Lina Tandoori! It is an absolutely amazing restaurant and has been a mainstay of the local community since I can remember. Ali, the guy who runs it is an absolutely...top bloke who, over the years, I've bumped into a number of times on the local 10k running circuit and has always ensured an amazing experience at Lina for myself and all my extended family. At my last visit, with my son, he asked after, with lots of stories and clearly heartfelt memories, my uncle (sadly now deceased), my dad, my brother and my cousins and their families. The food was, as ever, outstanding although, as I've already alluded to above, that is only a part of the first class Lina experience! If you live in or near Pangbourne, this restaurant is a must visit.More

Lina’s is our favourite and regular Friday night take away. It’s a lovely family-run business, and they really know and care about their customers.

Absolute gem of a restaurant and providing gluten free food! My husband and I were so glad we visited here as Ali is so welcoming along with all his family. The food was superb with no less than 3 gluten free breads for me to...choose from - unheard of in most restaurants. I also had a poppadum which I haven’t had for years and it was delicious. The curry was superb. We thoroughly recommend this lovely restaurant, it well deserves its top spot in Pangbourne. Thankyou Ali and family for a memorable evening.More

I’ve lived in the area for 14/15 years and have never been in here, today I did and wow. Small place so cosy. Family run establishment, friendly and welcoming. Food was absolutely delicious and I’m wondering why it’s taken me so long to eat here....Will definitely be returning.More

Was recommended by colleagues for the quality of the food. I was not disappointed it was top quality. I had mixed starter and chicken tikka biriyani. I shall return when next in Pangbourne.

My husband and I enjoy Indian food and have been to many different restaurants. We came across Lina last September and it has become our favourite place. Lina is a true family run restaurant, where the owner and chef Ali, will come out to meet...you and make sure you are happy with the food. Ali and his family make you feel welcome, it is a joy to spend time talking to them and the freshly cooked food is always top quality.More

Decided to eat at Lina's Tandoori as we drove through Pangbourne and we were all very glad that we did! The food and service was outstanding and we will definitely return as we enjoyed our meal so much. The portions were large and everything tasted...so fresh; the chef is a talented cook as the depth of flavour was very impressive. The menu is extensive and there was a wide variety of different dishes which suited us all. Everything was reasonable priced too and we could not fault anything. Lina's is well worth a visit.More
