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.

Dhan Shiri is by far the best value Indian restaurant/takeway in the area. Their food always arrives on time and hot. Most importantly, the portion sizes are extremely generous and put nearby Indian restuarants to shame. If you don't want to be ripped off and...enjoy some great food, Dhan Shiri is the way to go. Thanks again!More

We ordered a takeaway for ourselves and 2 friends. There was no delivery available so we had to collect. In our estimation the food was no where as good as previous takeaways. We were shorted by 1 naan bread, and the onion bhajis were over...cooked and dry. Our coconut rice was a different colour to previous and not very good. Sorry but we will not be buying again as very disappointedMore

Oh my goodness, so wish we had read some of the earlier reviews before picking up a takeaway from this restaurant. Can honestly say this is the worst Indian takeaway we have ever eaten. So much salt in the chicken tikka masala and sag aloo...it was difficult to eat more than a few mouthfuls. The portion of onion bhajees weighed a ton as dripping in oil and absolutely awful. Thought we’d try this restaurant for the first time and it will definitely be the last!More

It was far too spicy. Normally have madras but this was insanely hot. Seemed like good quality and big portions but be aware of the heat!

This place is a repeat favourite of mine. It has the best reputation in Burnham because of its award winning chefs and consistency. I almost always have jalfrezi and it is always just right. Not too much green chilli but still heat to that perfect...jalfrezi strength.More

Maybe the locals like to keep it a secret so that the TripAdvisor tourists don't over run the place. I had a fabulous jalfrezi and a scrumptious rogan josh tonight. They deliver and there's a restaurant there too.

Rice gritty and greasy, tarka dhal ridiculously salty and oily and not tarka'd, potatoes old and chewy, poppadoms tasted like cooked in overused oil, dhansak too too sweet. Threw half of meal in bin, inedible. If can't cook food to acceptable standard, shouldn't take orders.

I have takeaway from the Dhan Shiri about once a year, usually when other options are limited (e.g. Burnham on Crouch town centre closed off for carnival). The food here has never improved and can only be described as hideous. it reminds of the curries...my Mum attempted to make in the 1960s. My take away meal was absolutely awful -Chicken Tikka meat that never seen a tandoor, king prawns that look and tasted like gristle, special fried rice that didn't contain a single whole grain of rice and looked like it had been put through a food blender, the dhansak sauce has absolutely no flavour whatsoever. The best thing about this meal was the free poppadum. Never again.More

Could not face the kitchen, so ordered a takeaway from the Dhan Shiri which is just round the corner. I went for the set meal and added a king prawn dish for my husband. The prices are reasonable and the quantities outstanding. Taste and appearance...excellent, with good sized pieces of meat and a sufficient amount of sauce. Popadoms great and dips and salad plentiful. Would have no hesitation in recommending this to others.More
