I have used this establishment for 15 years and apart from a few ups and downs it has been reasonably consistent. However in recent months there have been more downs than ups! Tonight reached an all time low.70 minutes for delivery and the order was totally wrong! I have supported this restaurant and recommended it to many people but not... More

We have used The Star Of India for many years - even when we lived in Dover for 3 years, we would make a 16 mile round trip... it really is that good. The food is delicious but natural tasting, no nasty chemical flavouring ingredients. As a result, the flavours are delicate - I hope this makes sense! The staff... More

Great tasting food, only issue would be the £10 delivery fee to St Margaret's-at-Cliffe - a little excessive for the 10 minute drive!

I LOVE this place! Always top-notch, tasty, generous portions. Food cooked to order, so it's not as Hey Presto as some other take-aways (always worries me when food is produced within a few minutes), so you know it is fresh. Worth the wait. Lovely owner and staff.

We had a take away delivered this evening. The menu was extensive, so many lovely choices, till we got to the vegetarian choices. We ordered sag paneer which was served with melted cheddar on top - so so so disappointed, no sign of paneer. We ordered a dal which wasn't as expected either. Two dishes straight in the bin. Meanwhile... More

Been using the Star of India for over 20 years. Other places come and go but somehow always keep coming back here. The service is always very friendly and efficient and the food is always there or there abouts top notch. Not so much a takeaway as a way of life.
