I love the Star and Garter. Without doubt the best curry restaurant in Thame. Notable dishes Karai Kebab Khyberi, comes with only a little heat but you can ask for a bit more! Then Chicken Tikka Jalfrezi. Great service, good value and always a rose for the ladies. What more do you need.

I took my son here for dinner. Although it was early there were a few people already there. The waiter, who failed to smile the whole time we were there, showed us to a table. We ordered some papadums and a main course each, to which the waiter, a different one who also failed to smile, said "is that it!?".... More

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

We had dinner on Friday evening at the star and Garter and, knowing it was busy, arrived early at 7pm. There was a huge party occupying most of one half and the other tables were all occupied - just one table left for us! There were also an endless stream of take-away customers coming through: it's amazing how the staff... More

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!

Have had a few meals here and have never been disappointed, the staff are always courteous and polite and once ordered the food always arrives quickly and is always very well cooked and is of a high quality.
