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.

The food at Passage to India is authentic Indian, using quality ingredients, and run by a local family. The service is always friendly, the food is consistently of a high standard and great value for money. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

The mid week specials are a great way to enjoy your favourite curry with 20% off, i get a text message to notify me of the the special offers they have. Rest assured this is beautiful food.

Found this place last Saturday when searching for a new Indian takeaway. Called in to collect my food ad met the owner. Great guy and the food was amazing and full of flavour. Ordered tonight, very easy on the online app and i got 10% off my first online order. Food came within 45 mins and it was a Saturday. If you are after a taste of traditional Indian Quisean, then this is the place to go.

Possibly the worst curry I've ever had. Lamb Madrasi just a blended watery sauce with lumps of lamb. Not sure why it has, 5* rating it was horrendous. I'll stick to the Jeera in future

Ordered from these guys a few times and honestly it never disappoints. The food is absolutely lush, really fairly priced, loads for your money and everything’s super fresh. Best Indian’s I’ve ever had! Definitely support this local business, the owners are really lovely.

Quite simply the best Indian food I have ever had, from either restaurants or takeaways. This family run business is clean, efficient and friendly. Delivery is free or well priced but I prefer to collect for a bit of repartee with the owners. The thought of Indian pizzas bamboozled me initially but after trying several now, I can safely say they are different class and complete a vast and varied menu. (I cry when they are closed.). Top marks.

Worst Indian takeaway I've ever had. Tasteless food with lack of seasoning and any Indian taste. Onion bhaji tasteless. Chicken tikka masala with no kick and really sweet! Lamb tikka korma where the lamb was as hard as a board. Real shame as we read great reviews... 😲 😠 Waste of almost 30pounds down the drain.

Ordered an Indian meal on bank holiday Monday at 17.00hrs and picked it up at 17.30 as requested, the meal was waiting for me when I arrived. Really friendly staff, the meal of Chicken Balti, Vegetable Pilau, Chips, Poppadoms, and a Keema and Garlic Paratha was superb. Everything piping hot and beautifully cooked. Will definitely be ordering again next week.

If you like Indian food, then you HAVE to get a takeaway from here. We have had a few in the past couple of years, this was probably the best! We don't eat loads so we ordered: 1 x Large Chicken Tikka Balti, 1 x Pilau Rice, 1 x Chips. Wifey reckoned it was the best Pilau Rice she has tasted and we both thought the Balti was amazing. We'll be back soon!!

I've been using Passage to India for over 20years and its still the same family that run the business now. Their longevity in the food takeaway business speaks volumes! If you like authentic Indian food order from this place. I usually order the chicken chat starter, chicken madras with a mushroom pilau and a pehwari naan bread! The chicken tikka cheesy chips are a game changer! Great family great food!

We use the restaurant every week to order our Indian takeaway. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We class them as our friends now. The food is fantastic and we have never had a bad meal. The portions are very generous. Nothing is a trouble to them and they go out of they way to provide a 100% service.

We have used Passage to India for a while now and wouldn’t go anywhere else. The munch boxes are fantastic, the onion bhajis are amazing. Delivery is always super fast and the drivers are friendly. Would highly recommend 10/10
