Reasonable food, so so service. Nothing terrible but there are much better curry houses in this area.

Had a good meal. The staff greeted us well, and the service was excellent. The poppadoms and the dips were superb. I had a vindaloo and it was a bit tasteless. The garlic naan was very good

My brother recommended this place and the quality and taste of the curry was excellent. Doing a steady trade for a Monday night. The lamb was very tender in the lamb dansak, starters and sides were spot on. Good portion sizes, too much for us, but there is always the freezer!

We used to visit their restaurant in Oxford and found that the Abingdon place is just as good. Really like the staff and the service here. The food is very good.

We are regular at this restaurant and enjoy our visit each time. They seem to get busy Fridays and Saturdays a lot. If you visit one of these days you might hear the phone ringing too much. Sometimes a lot of queue in the lounge area for takeaways. You might wait little bit but the staff are welcoming. At times... More

I went Friday to collect takeaway - food was good - much better than everywhere else we've been lately after our favourite restaurant closed last year. Used to come here when it first opened in the late 90's, but haven't been for such a long time. This seems to be an error on our part! Had poppadoms and pickles, all... More

I wish I had read the reviews before coming to eat here last week. Appalling greeting. Well no greeting at all but the most offhand and rude woman who made us want to leave immediacy. I wish we had. In all my days I've never met anyone so rude. Staff training is a must as this is a recurring problem... More

Very poor service on arrival, bordering on rude. Ignored by staff for 10 minutes even though we had booked. Didn't like the ambiance, very gloomy. Left and went somewhere else so no idea what the food was like.
