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.

Been here multiple times over the past year or two. It’s a bit hit and miss. Sometimes the staff can be great, friendly and relaxed. Other times it feels like a hustle, try to upsell you more than you want etc. Visited last night -...a big noisy party were in the back room. Service was slow and we waited 15mins to just order drinks. Food is generally good but as an earlier writer mentioned, you can order several different dishes and they all look and taste similar. Last nights chicken madras was mostly sauce with little chicken. Others had Baltis which were good. Naan and rice were fine. It used to be our go-to in Rugby, but the consistency is missing - you can get a wonderful meal or something quite average… it’s a pity…More

Had a couple of Rogan Josh dishes as a takeaway, loads of food but no richness and no spice. Bhajis and naans were bland too. At least it was cheap!

What a welcoming, friendly and family orientated place! Lovely Food. I am beyond ecstatic at the service my work colleagues and I received today. Our waiter Shahrukh and the Manager himself Samin were always at hand and constantly asking if we were OK. I will...be most definitely returning again and recommending to others. Thank you!!More

It's become our family tradition to go to Malancha for a curry on new years eve,have done for a few years now. Usually a good experience not this time ! Booking was lost, squeezed on a table amongst everyone else although not fully booked in...there at all, eventually took our food order for main courses ages after eating starters, as the waiter was taking out order was too busy looking in the mirror to watch the restaurant main door we might as well have been invisible!! The food was ok not as good as it usually is . Wasn't a good experience came away feeling very disappointed and wasn't made to feel welcome at all , was like they didn't want us there was a big chore !! So off our list from now on.More

I’ve frequented this restaurant since Omar originally owned and operated it for many years. The menu does not reflect the food! You can order three different chicken dishes and they look and taste the same but vary in price. The collection of chef’s special dishes...are over priced variants. Yes, the ambience is nice but the food is so far off being authentic Indian or Bengali. So much sugar and red colouring in the food. Dunchurch is an upmarket village but the menu is overpriced as are the beers. Finally, there’s no Omar, he was the life and sole of the restaurant: always greeted is customers warmly and with respect.More

Food was great. There was a bit of a mishap when one of the waiters knocked over the glasses (which smashed everywhere) when putting down the plates. The staff dealt with everything really well. Moved us to a different table, kept checking we were OK,...had a free round of drinks & voucher for next meal. Couldn't ask for better service!More

Decided to try here , really wished we hadn't. First impressions, no table cloths, table sticky, and paper napkins. Poppadoms and chutneys were nice. Had to chase our main course, az we appeared to have been forgotten. Mushrooms were tinned, jalfrezi consisted of whole uncooked...chillies, uncooked onion, and crunchy peppers, no sauce or flavour whatsoever. Chicken madras not edible. Rice didn't appear, when it did, wished it hadn't. Tinned mushrooms in it, and looked/tasted like microwave bag. NO food warmer. Naan bread flat and cut into quarters. I can honestly say this was the worst curry we have ever been served. Went to pay, after leaving the table with the food still on it, explained problems, staff couldn't care less. £50.95 later, we had 4 poppadoms, a pint and half a glass of non fizzy diet coke. ABSOLUTE RUBBISH, will never return. It was worth £10 Maximum. If only we had stuck to original plans, Long Buckby Village Spice...More

Regularly use Malancha and it's always fantastic. Mostly we order the takeaway which, be aware, usually has around an hours wait. So last week I ordered at 11.30am just so I could pick up on the way home from work at 5.30pm. 1st in the...queue! Friendly staff and as always fantastic food. Excellence is worth the wait. The other great thing is the variety on the menu. Yes the favourites are on so Korma etc but I love the different meals you don't see elsewhere which are full of flavour. Try the Chicken Tikka Rothon Masala or the Chicken Badami both great but not spicy. They also give a discount if you order online over £35 using the Bookyup link. Worth a visit if you are anywhere near Dunchurch. RickMore
