“Most Consistent Indian Restaurant in Bristol”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

The Roshni is by a long way the most consistently good restaurant I have found for indian cuisine. Many other establishments tend to change chefs or ingredients which is reflected in wide variations in the flavour and consistency of the food. You always get a warm reception from the owner who is very attentive and strives to make his restaurant welcoming to all

“Best in the Village by far”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

We're spoiled for choice in the village with three Indian restaurants to choose from, but Roshni is by far the best and our favourite by a country mile.
Great selection of dishes, both the usual spectrum of korma-to-vindaloo and specialities: lamb methi, lamb tikka patia, lobra salon and Afghan chana chicken are particular favourites of ours. Cater well for families early in the evening (even accommodating some of the stranger off-menu requests of our children, e.g. keema rice, sag aloo and a masala sauce - strange child!).
Traditional style decor and atmosphere, very popular with the locals (and we frequently see the same regulars there - lot of loyal returning customers, which speaks volumes for the food).
Staff are very friendly, know all of our family and greet us warmly when we arrive (or phone up).

“Best Indian food in the area”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

I keep coming back to the Roshni as the food is simply better than the rest. No artificial anythings, thick and generous dhal, huge choice of interesting dishes that you don't find elsewhere, everything very tasty and well balanced. The staff are lovely. The decor is a little tired perhaps but everything else more than compensates.

“Really need to work on customer service skills”
Reviewed 19 May 2012 via mobile

Went for a meal with partner and son, the atmosphere was awfull and the customer service skills did not exist... The best bit of the food was the poppadoms... As for the rest of it, for us was terrible, would not recommend or return...
