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.

Extremely disappointed to have been over charged and arrived home to realise the order was not correct. We only ordered 1 main with rice and a couple of sides - but they gave us a starter chicken tikka instead of a main. So we had...4 pieces of (small measly positioned) chicken between 2 adults. Thanks for your rubbish mealMore

Just tried this Indian take away for the first time. Have to say the food was amazing. The lamb vindaloo was hot stunning and the flavour was out of this world. Will definitely be our new weekly take away venue Would recommend it to anyone....The best Indian around Bridgend.More

Really poor service. Happy to wait the hour and a half for delivery but didn’t get our order right when it arrived. Advised we can either wait another hour for the missing items or go down to the restaurant ourselves and get a cash refund....No real apology and no effort made to get us our missing items/a refund. Last time I’ll order from thereMore

The food here is clearly the best Indian in Bridgend. A wide variety of dishes all cooked to perfection. What lets it down is the slow service. They also got my order wrong which was annoying. However I will give it another try soon.

Having visited on a Sunday evening, we were incredibly disappointed by the service (or lack thereof) we were provided. We had booked a table prior to visiting, as we were a table of 9, expecting this to help the kitchen staff. However, the length of...time taken to receive any food was frankly ludicrous. An hour and 15 minutes after ordering we finally received our starters. It then took just short of two hours for our mains to arrive. Had the restaurant been busy, this could have been more understandable - but we were the only table in the restaurant. I think I can now understand why people choose to have a takeaway, rather than waster hours of their time in this mockery. On the plus side, the food was tasty with everybody (apart from one) at the table content with their orders. Although I think we were content due to the time delay, as the food was average at best. There was little meat in the curry and the flavours were a little bland. Though we did have to return one order to the kitchen, as it was unbearably salty. I sympathise with the waitress whom appeared stretched between multiple job roles, though this resulted in a lack of service that was unapologetic and inadequate. We were not even asked if we would like any further drinks. I would not return to this establishment, though I may consider a takeaway in the future.More

Was recommended this as a good alternative to nearby Ashoka, and I agree it’s a great place. Prices are average but portions are generous, great value if you can share a main as will be plenty for most. Menu is great, selection of dishes I’ve...not come across before which I can’t wait to try. Had the Lamb Tikka biryani so tasty and Keema Naan, rice also superb. Free large bottle of Coke is a nice touch as well. Recommended.More

Very nice. It was empty when we went there and I think this must just be down to having to walk 2 minutes more out of town. The young lady that greeted and served us was a breath of fresh air. Her knowledge about the...dishes was second to none. Even down to explaining the regions the different dishes oriented from. Some people have turned their noses up at the popadoms because they come as a triangle and not round. On the contrary. They should all come that way. Much better. And to top it all. The curry I chose was perfect. Will definitely be back againMore
