We had the set feast menu which certainly started very well. There was a selection of kebab,chicken tikka,bhajis, samosas and pakoras. All very tasty and well presented on a sizzle plate. The mains were slightly disappointing apart from the beef vindaloo but this may have just been my preferences. Avoid the wine as ours was decidedly dubious! The beer looked... More

We used trip advisor to find a great Indian Restaurant and we were not disappointed. We regularly eat Indian and this was as good as anywhere we have eaten. The menu is a little small and the wine list pretty average but what they did produce was fantastic. It was very busy so the service was average but don't let... More

We did a take out for a group of eight people. With everybody taking a different dish we got a fair overview of the quality of the food. It took 45 minutes to prepare the food but it must be said, that they pre warned us and served drinks to soften the waiting experience. The food was of excellent quality... More

My husband and I had just dinner. We waited almost 40 minutes for any food. They seemed to focus on walk in takeaways. Table was right near the front with constant queues of people standing right behind us. Their spraying of tables with Dettol just drifted across us. Fish Tikka just so so but rest of meal good. They knocked... More

We phone ordered, asked if we could use our entertainment voucher for takeaways, no issue there and went to pick it up - however we arrived and where then told that we would only get a 10% discount after they had added surcharge as it was a public holiday. Our voucher was for 25% off the total bill. Legally businesses... More

We arrived early as a table of 10. The restaurant was not busy, but certainly filled up as time moved on. I'm used to eating (and personally prefer) 'traditional' Indian cuisine. So I'm unsure if Indian Affair is more a Fijian Indian slant. Poppadums seemed to be cooked with whole fennel seeds, which I found a strange taste. The two... More

Staff can make or break a restaurant. The young waiter has some attitude problem. No doubt he is costing this place money with his arrogant and rude approach.

Easily the best Indian food experience I have had this year. Attentive waiters without being intrusive. Finding a balance for devoted curry eaters and those preferring something milder at the same table is a rare thing!
