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.

Went for Dinner with my wife. Been before so know some of the people that serve. The food was excellent and service very prompt. We always ask for recommendations and usually accept. He also asked if we wanted to try a sardine curry as a...side dish. He also gave us a mashed potato dish mixed with raw onions and chillies. Very good. If you like a great curry I would recommend Lemon Grass!More

Better off with a microwave meal, curry was tasteless and very oily, keema nan had a tiny bit of meat, garlic nan had no garlic. Tried to overcharge.

Tasty food and good service which was let down by the very scruffy seats with covering peeling off them all and stained tablecloths. We knew about the quality of the food but I feel many people would look at the furnishings and go elsewhere. Get...your act together or you will surely have some health and safety issues and lose customers.More

Service was great, our waiter was super attentive without being intrusive, bought extra pickles and rice(without charging) and generally ensured the evening went well. Vegetarian and meat eaters all catered for with great food. Will visit again next time we’re here.

We have been here 4-5 times now over the last 8 months. On this visit we were greeted as friends and the waiter chatted with us as such. What a lovely guy. The service here is amazing, so friendly and helpful. The food is excellent....We started with poppadoms and the chutney tray. I had Onion Bhajis and a Vegetable Dupiaza with Pilau Rice. We had a side dish of Aloo Gobi. My husband had King Prawn Malaya and Mushroom Rice. We come from Leicester so we have eaten in many Indian restaurants at different price levels. My husband recently had a meal in a flashy Birmingham Indian Restaurant and paid £60 for I person. All the above food cost just over £47. Amazing value and not at all overpriced for the quality and quantity of food. I will sum up by saying the decor and furnishings are a little tired but the place was very clean. In my opinion the food and service here more than make up for that slight issue. This place has a heart and is well worth a visit.More

We got takeaway from here while on holiday. It was pretty poor. Watery curry lacking flavour. Overpriced and poor quality.

The place is fairly typical of small town indian restaurants with no local competition. When we arrived we ordered poppadums and chutneys. No one else was there at 6.30pm. The chutneys were heavily watered down and barely able to stay on the poppadum. We were...pressed to order so I went with my usual chicken balti and my friend something similar. The meals arrived within literally minutes which made me suspicious. My balti dish was a generic chicken curry dish, very bulked up with onions. It was bland and so poor tasting I only ate the chicken from the dish. We were constantly hurried and harassed to a point where it became a joke between my friend and I. The waitress would take drinks off the table before we’d finished and hover over the table so we couldn’t chat. It came to £35 and I wish we’d gone for fish and chips instead. If you HAVE to have a curry in Dolgellau there’s no choice but be warned it’s very very poor.More

What an amazing place! Visited north wales as part of our trip and wanted a nice Indian takeaway and this did not disappoint. Best curry we have EVER. Onion bhajis were unreal, naan was super soft. Everything was 5* and the people were lovely.

Really lovely food and a friendly atmosphere. We had a meal here early on a Friday evening, it wasn’t busy and the dishes were all good. It exceeded our expectations. Just remember to bring cash!

Amazing food with friendly service. Recommendations from the staff which one of our group had and it was delicious, as were all of our meals (we were a group of eight). If your in or near Dolgellau I would throughly recommend this restaurant. It is...cash only, but there is a cash point near by and also BYO alcohol, which we did.More

Called in on the off chance, and got a table straight away. The staff were friendly and attentive. The meal was delicious and piping hot. The fried rice was beautiful and the peshwari naan was one of the best I've ever had. Exceptionally good value...for money.More

Nice food, but portion sizes are much smaller and the prices have gone up massivly. I get that everything is more expensive, but it shouldn't be Smaller AND more Expensive..
