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.

Very tasty original freshly prepared food. Friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble. Reasonably priced and good quality. Best ti book weekend and race days.

This was the worst Indian meals we have ever had. The main meal was disgusting no flavour and full of oil. I don’t know why this restaurant was given 4 - 5 stars

Starters were ok and the service was friendly. Sadly the mains left a lot to be desired. Chicken tikka masala was the best, but even then, average. The seafood balti and handi cocktail ( both medium spiced dishes) were both bland and non-descript. The “mixed...seafood” in the balti was grisly. I told the waiter who said he’d tell the chef but there was no further attempt to address it. Most of our mains food went back to the kitchen and we certainly didn’t want it boxed up. We would not visit again nor recommend.More

This is our third visit to this restaurant. There is always a warm welcome and the food is just amazing - try the Shashi Shashlik Bhuna if chicken breast in lovely big chunks of popper and onion is your thing. Very reasonably priced too -...the two of us had starters, mains, three sides and two pints of Cobra and it came to £68.More

Really friendly service and one of the best curries we’ve ever had. The menu had some different options, especially for the vegetable dishes which had a fresh variety of vegetable ingredients. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and would definitely recommend.

This is the second takeaway I have had from here in two months. The first was ok, this was very poor. Firstly, according to the website you get 15% off with collection. I didn’t and that felt deliberate at the time. The food itself was...poor. The starter was ok but the main course was watery and tasteless apart from a little bit of heat but nothing else. I had a lamb dish and the lamb itself was beautifully cooked but everything else about the dish was unpleasant. I can’t recommend this place.More
