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.

Poor service and rude waiters including the manager. Waiter spilt a drink over one of our party of 8 and we had to wipe the table. After an hour our food arrived and it was thrown onto the table. Complained to manager who said they...were busy and short staffed and made no apology. When we left, not one waiter nor the manager said goodbye, completely ignored us. Won't be returningMore

Awful experience. Came here for a birthday meal, booked in advance. The waiter was rude and unhelpful. He was dismissive with our queries about the set meal options and contradicting what was written on the menu. We asked for the manager to help with our...query, who came over and was incredibly patronising, repeatedly rolling his eyes and very condescending. We decided to leave without ordering and as we stood the manger whilst seating other customers rudely said "are you ready to leave now" offering no apology and didn't care about upsetting or losing customers. All in all very rude and would not recommend. Until today, I had never left a restaurant before ordering! We ended up going to Forts of India in Whitefield the food was fantastic and the service was excellent.More

Recently visited here as a big group attending a meal with friends, service was slow and poor. The staff (in particular the manager) was extremely rude and vile and spoke to us in a disgusting manner. How they are the manager I do not know,...absolutely appalling attitude towards customers. Do not waste your money, the food was average nothing spectacular and the wait is long for a bang average meal. Avoid at all cost!!!!More

We regularly visit, clean nice decor and decent staff. Have been over 15 times and not been let down yet. Got a takeaway once and was not a patch on the freshly cooked food in the restaurant but this is the case with most places....Tandoori king prawns are top draw. Good place to go with family and friends.More

Great service and great food. Went quite late in service so there it wasn't full, but still a lively atmosphere. My mum loves a korma and regrets it if she doesn't order one, but also loves to try new things - when the server realised...she couldn't decide he gave her a free portion of the mango curry she was deliberating over along with the korma she ordered. That was such a kind gesture and she loved the new curry as well as her favourite. All the other dishes we had were delicious. Couldn't fault anythingMore

I’ll start by saying this is our go to takeaway when visiting my daughter in Prestwich, only because the quality is usually extremely good, so I am a fan - until tonight! Onion Bajhi - awful. Tasted a week old, and reheated several times. Paratha...- awful. Worst I’ve eaten anywhere in the country. Chicken Tikka Balti & Chicken Tikka Acharee - totally devoid of heat. I can only assume the restaurant ran out of chillies! Such a shame - a lot of money spent for a dreadful takeaway. The free bottle of beer went nowhere towards making up for the shocking meal. IMore
