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.

Possibly the worst Indian I’ve ever been to. Was in the restaurant for over 90 minutes, was one of only three tables (the other two were of two people each) and it took an hour for starters to come. Onion piaza was insanely dry, the...curries were bland and the drinks were flat. I ordered a vegetable korma (as I am vegan), and asked to check whether it was dairy cream or coconut cream. The question fell on deaf ears and I was served a chicken curry… even though nobody ordered chicken on the table. Slow service, bland, tasteless food and zero atmosphere, which for a Saturday night with three tables on is absolutely shambolic. Waste of money and time. Avoid at all costs.More

We were a large table of 17 of us. Didn’t start well with drinks orders. No lime so they just delivered a soda water , all the lemonade and coke ordered was flat and all had to ask for replacements. Red wine was off so...also had to ask for a replacement. Was a little worried after such a disastrous drinks experience but the food was really nice. Service could have been better (some staff members seemed more on the ball than others) but we all had a nice time and tasty food.More

Really excellent food and service in no-nonsense surroundings. I had a lamb tikka chilli massalla — the meat was good quality, and the sauce really tasty. The keema naan had plenty of keema in it, and wasn’t greasy at all. Thank you.

Can't recommend Redolence enough, we dined in and the food was amazing, beautifully spiced and lovely tender meat, portions were massive. End of the meal the chef came out for a chat which showed how much pride he has in his work. Will definitely be...going again.More

We visited as a group of 14 for my daughters 12th birthday. There were 5 children and 2 vegans in the party. The service was outstanding. The man was paitent when we orded, helped us to decide what we wanted by discussing with us what...we like. He was really accommodating about me being vegan (which is unusual). The kids were served first (always good In a family group) and we all got our meal's together, hot and delicious! There were no complaints about anybody's meal (which is unusual with my family). We brought a birthday cake with us and they lit the candle's and brought it out , providing knife, plates and serviettes. Nothing was too much trouble. I really can't recommend this place highly enough. we will definitely be returning and recommending to friends!More

Very lucky to find this restaurant last month while working near by. I have been here 4-5 times in the last month and sampled a few dishes on the menu and all of it has been gorgeous and plentiful. This is backed up with service...that is attentive without being overbearing. I would definitely recommend Redolence to anyone who likes great Indian food.More

This lovely independent restaurant has recently undergone complete modernisation. It features tiled flooring, marble tables and a contemporary minimalist décor which all creates a relaxed vibe. Part of the restaurant is panelled off to create a separate Shisha / Vaping lounge (called Penthouse Lounge). Redolence...is licensed and the house wine is very nice. The food here is delicious and of excellent quality. The menu is varied and offers a good choice of Indian favourites including a range of “smaller plates” which is a fabulous idea for anyone wanting to taste a few different options. The décor, flexible menu and reasonably priced drinks would make this a fabulous location for groups & parties. The delightful owner Sammi is very welcoming and takes his time to chat to customers. Nothing is too much trouble for Sammi and his team and they are very willing to adjust items on the menu to suit everyone’s individual taste.More

I have eaten here a number of times over the years but have never left a review. I feel with the way the world is today with reviews being very important to small businesses it deserves a few minutes of my time. I had the...pleasure of eating in the restaurant tonight, the first time in 18mths due to the pandemic and not being from the area but as with previous visits I was not disappointed. There is a new streamlined menu, still with plenty of dishes but perhaps not as many as before and the interior has had a modern refit. The food I had this evening was delicious, perfectly cooked, the lamb tender and it had just the right amount of heat for me. The staff are very friendly and the prices extremely reasonable. I will definitely be back again soon, keep up the good work. Thank you.More
