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.

Food was poor, came surprisingly quickly. Staff were fairly surly and couldn't wait to get rid of us. Attracted by the BYO but they insisted on rushing through our order before opening any wine. Only a couple of other tables in. Give it a miss....Plenty of others.More

Had a nice meal out here with some friends. Curries were all tasty (In particular the lamb bhuna was very good) and the staff were friendly and attentive. It is BYOB but staff were more than happy to accommodate. It was also straight after the...England vs Ireland game and staff really handled the amount of people well. Definitely would book again.More

Very welcoming host. More on the food.. where to start. Poppadoms with a pickles including a very refreshing coconut one. Then a sweet dhansak and a spicy gosht and a few other dishes, including a jahl naan. If your in town for the rugby or...otherwise well worth coming here for an amazing curry.More

Very disappointed with Sheesh Mahal, we ordered takeaway (we normally eat in) 1 starter, 2 mains, 1 rice and 2 breads and that came to £33 so quite expensive. We opted to pay cash and when the driver arrived I tried to pay with 2...x £20 notes and the driver said he had no change and he asked if that was okay? I said no not really but he took the money and no change ever arrived. £33 was expensive anyway but £40 is a rip off, who sends a driver out to deliver for cash with no change!? The lamb karahi curry was basically half a portion as you can see from the picture and was half the size of the chicken madras and the lamb was tough and chewy. The chicken madras was ordered extra spicy but had no heat at all, infact it was very bitter from too much lemon. All in all a very poor takeaway and the most expensive one we have ever ordered. We will not be using Sheesh Mahal again, a much better local option is Jolly's in Whitton if you are looking for a tasty good value Indian. Food: 1/5 | Service: 1/5More

I came here last year for a friend's birthday and I returned here last week, I reserved a table for 8.00. I attended the rugby at RFU HQ, England v Wales, we arrived at the restaurant at 8.30 due to the huge crowd leaving the...stadium, and of course all the bars and restaurants in Twickenham were crowded, but despite the huge demand for tables, our table was ready when we arrived, friendly prompt efficient attentive customer service and delicious food. This was my companion's first visit and she was very impressed. The restaurant offered a 10% discount to customers who paid cash, that's a great idea and very generous. So I've had two very nice evenings here and I'll definitely return.More

Absolutely the best Indian restaurant in the area. Having lived many years in both the balti triangle in Birmingham and near Brick Lane in East London this is probably the most reliably good Indian restaurant I’ve even eaten at. Absolutely my favourite Friday night takeaway...the dishes are always really fresh tasting and are distinctly different from each other I like many other takeaways I’ve had over the years. I’m a meat eater and the garlic chilli lamb is a personal favourite but I must recommend mitha lau which is absolutely delicious. This place deserves a way higher score!More

Not been here for quite a while having had a disappointing meal. Nothings really changed sadly. Stylish place, clean, nice decor but…. a tasteless pasanda (how??). When we commented was told that’s how it tastes! Service was indifferent until we sent said pasanda back but...too late then. The pickle tray was tasty as was the okra. Wine excellent (but it’s byo!). We gave it a go but won’t be returning. Place was empty.More

A great place for lunch before the Rugby. Its a set menu as such with a limited choice. The food is good as is the service. Staff are really friendly. Please note that if you want an alcoholic drink you have to nip next door...to buy it and there is a corkage charge.More

For those in the know this is basically the best place to go for a curry in Twickenham. It’s been around for ages and the venue/staff are top notch. My favourites include the onion bhaji, puri and Chicken Tandoori. Well worth checking out.
