Family take away on a very busy Friday evening but very disappointed with quality of food recently. We've had take out food many times from here and it was, at one point, the best in Thame. Sadly this has been on a steady decline over recent months. Food was greasy, not hot enough (temperature not spice), chicken was dry and... More

There was a huge party occupying most of one half and the other tables were all occupied - just one table left for us!

The Star & Garter is the best place for a curry in Thame. There are many great tasting dishes to choose from, Keep it up!

I visited when this place first opened and really enjoyed the food and the somewhat Fawlty Towerish service. My recent visit found the food still very tasty and of good value and I'm glad to say there is still a mild Fawlty feel to the place.

We visited to celebrate a birthday as part of a large group. The staff were friendly and helpful, however, service was a little slow, for example we had to ask twice for a jug of tap water and waited around 10 minutes for it, despite the restaurant being fairly quiet. When the cutlery arrived it was (literally!) thrown down on... More

I was recommended to try this place and was not disappointed! Nice surroundings, attentive staff and some of the best food I have eaten for a while. It's just a shame I don't get to Thame very often!

Great food, nice friendly staff! As like most Indians it's good for couples, and groups The mixed starter was delicious and would have done as a main it was so generous!

I go to The Star and Garter about once a month with friends and family. It is consistently good and very crowded at weekends. Good service and atmosphere in a converted pub. I would highly recommend!
