“The best Indian food for miles”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

My family and I have been eating at the Baranda since it opened and are yet to visit a better Indian restaurant. The quality of food is excellent and the service is both very friendly and prompt. The restaurant is also clean and smart looking and we never go anywhere else.

I have converted many friends to here and have also been to event nights which are great fun! The Elvis night was especially good fun.

“Good food and nice ambience”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

There is strong competition in Wokingham with atleast four Indian restaurants plus several take aways. Baranda stands out for decor, efficient staff and good food.
The owner is often present, and always circulates amongst the customers ensuring they are well looked after.

“good food and superb service”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

we eat there often and have take aways too. The food is always excellent with fresh ingredients that are well prepared and there is a good selection on the menu as well so not just the bog standard stuff you get in an Indian resteraunt. The staff are lovely and are always very attentive and friendly . I think the resteraunt always looks well presented without having tables crammed together as so many places do and it is always looks very clean. Great value for money and a great meal, thank you

“Good food, slow service”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

We came here for a pre xmas couples meal. When we arrived there was only one other couple in the restaurant but a few more arrived around the time we did. Service initially was prompt and very courteous, and our drinks, starters and mains came out promptly.

I'd say the food was good. Not the best curry I've had, and for me the lamb was a little tough but the sauces are excellent and decent portions.

However a football team turned up for their xmas meal and I'm not sure if staff attention then became exclusive to them but the service standard dropped off completely.

Our finished plates were left in front of us for 45 minutes before they were cleared up and a dessert menu was put in front of us.

No-one came to ask if we actually wanted dessert and so after another half an hour we got up and went to the bar in order to get the bill. We then took no chances and took the bill to the waiter in order to pay.

It didn't really matter as we were catching up with friends and so we could have a nice chat, but all the same it would have been nice to have the empty plates cleared away at least.

Dear M. James,
Thank you for visiting Baranda restaurant & for your comment. I really am very sorry to know that you did not receive high standard service soon after the other large group came to the restaurant. I will look into this and make sure it does not happens again to any guests.
I have also discussed with our chef & supplier about the lamb. Chef assured that he will make sure that lamb are tender.
We hope we will see you soon again.

yours faithfully
