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.

Nice clean venue - used restaurant for 2 persons. Food was ok quality and service fast. Ordered draught Kingfisher from menu - brought bottles instead - didn't say they weren't availble - but they were nice and cold. Small portions of rice and naan bread....Main dishes had generous servings of meat - but one dish was incorrect (ordered lamb and was served chicken) when I queried it I was told I HAD ordered chicken. (even though I knew 100% I hadn't). I wasn't offered a replacement and felt too uncomfortable to push it. Not sure if the waiters interaction was somehow lost in translation - but although he smiled throughout and was very quietly spoken - he continually called me 'sir' (I'm female) and made me feel slightly intimiated. At the end of the meal he asked several times if we wanted to take the incorrect curry home as the dish looked untouched (I had only eaten the three pieces of tomato as I don't like chicken curry - which is why I hadn't ordered it) - I honestly wasn't sure if he was being sarcastic or just oblivious. Overall if the order had been correct it would have been great value for money. I'd recommend asking the waiter to re-read your order back to you after he's taken it. Didn't use the ladies so can't comment on those facilities.More

Booked a table in advance for 7:00pm for 4 people. On arrival we were seated and given menus ordered a round of drinks. The waiter then returned 3 times to ask for our order before we had chance to read the menu. Following our order,...the food was served quickly however the dishes were watery with very little chicken in two of them. We pointed this out to the staff who asked how many pieces of chicken where in the dish! The meals were replaced which was good, but the dishes served where exactly the same watery flavorless with a very little meat. I have been a number of times to this restaurant with no issues but his was very a very disappointing experience.More

Booked here for a Friday night, surprised it wasn't busier. Lovely decoration and colour scheme which works well. Very courteous and friendly service. Three of us had great Biryanis and my wife chose Tandoori mixed grill which went down well. Will definitely visit again when...in the area.More

Hadn't booked and we were seated straight away. Drinks order taken and brought to us. Food came out pretty quickly and was of a decent standard. Having eaten Veggie Indian food before I thought the potato chaat was very different to what I have had...before. I think this is the chefs version of this and is far from the mark.More

I had a take away. We had aloo chat, chicken chat to start, chicken buns and pilau rice for main and garlic naan and poppadums with mint sauce. Everything about the meal was amazing and this will be our no1 Indian restaurant from now on.

Ordered 1 normal coke and 1 diet coke drinks. Both out of date. Normal coke expired June 2020 and the diet coke April 2019. They gave us another coke. Which was out of date again. Sent them back. They tried to charge us for the...4 cokes even though we sent them back. The attitude from the older man was appauling. Never going there again. If the drinks are out of date what else is out of dateMore

We ordered a takeaway from here last weekend and had not tried Natraj before. Meat curry dishes were fairly cheap and had lots of meat in (although the lamb in our pathia was very hit and miss. Some tender and some chewy). The chicken passanda...curry dish was good. The lamb tikka starter was a bit tough and we left most of it. Onion bahjis were very good, as were the selection of chutneys in the chutney tray. Bombay potatoes okay but quite a small portion. Pilau rice was good, mushroom rice exactly the same as the pilau but with a few mushrooms chopped in. So overall.... enjoyed it but quality varied in what we ordered!More

If there's one good thing that's come out of this crisis it's the Natraj delivering takeaway food! We had a Thali for 4 and it was absolutely stunning. Without doubt the best.
