“Excellent lunchtime buffet”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

The buffet lunch is in the upstairs room, which is accessed round the side...and up the ramp. Parking is at the front , can get very busy and soon fills up, limited spaces........
We were being shown to a table to the left of the restaurant, but the waiter was very amenable when I requested a window table....as this was my first visit here...
Unfortunately we had to brush crumbs from the chairs and there was a lot of food on the floor.....the table top felt sticky......something that seemed to have been overlooked....I wasn't going to let this cloud my judgement on this place, as I had heard so many ''good things'' about the food......
The dining area is a large spacious room, tables not cramped, with the ''sweet'' cabinet near the entrance and the starter and main course area further down the room......
The waiter was prompt and efficient with taking drinks orders, a little sullen but polite.
I had mixed salad with fish pakora and veggie samosa , with chicken masala, rice and chapatti for the main, followed by mango sorbet and chocolate mousse.....''wow'' all the food was superb, the fish especially was moist, fleshy and succulent....Brilliant choices and variety to pick from....
I have to say I am more then impressed with the overall experience and would recommend this venue to anyone who wants to have a ''reasonably priced, good variety, flavoursome food and no pressure experience''.....well done Aagrah....I will be visiting again....

“THE AAGRAH SHIPLEY BUFFET - WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE?”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

I just do not understand how the Aagrah cannot be regarded as outstanding. My meals in the (downstairs) restaurant have always been very good, but the buffet is another matter.

The range of dishes on offer is astonishing, and they range over starters, mains and desserts. Whilst you may not like a fish starter, the dal mains, or the jelly pud, but does that matter? There are 20 or 30 more dishes on offer, a large proportion are stunning, and you can eat as much as you like. And all for less than £15 per head!

Two days ago, on my latest visit, the service was not up to the usual very high standard, but hey-ho, that's life, and the Aagrah has so much credit in my bank, I'm prepared to forgive them.

“Value Buffet - Chic suroundings”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Out of this world Curry House - the biggest I have ever seen. Lots of helpful staff. A La Carte is good stuff. Buffet is the best value great curry you can get.
Funny to come out of the Aagra and find yourself in an office park - I suppose you should drive there- good car park.

“Buffet”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Buffet was excellent. Wide range of starters, mains and puddings. We all ate too much!

Staff very friendly and overall it was not cheap, but very good value.
