Really tasty curry.

Visited on a Thursday night as never been before and have heard good things about the place, it was reasonably busy which is always nice. Ordered poppadoms and chutneys to start which came reasonably quickly and they were nice and warm with a good chutney selection. Quite a long wait till main... read more

After being seated it took a while to have drinks order taken. This is a pet hate of mine. In fact when the drinks order was taken we ordered everything. Food came before drinks. At this stage the service was pretty dismal. We ordered Onion Bhaji as starter. However due to service mix up, this never arrived. It arrived with... More

The staff bring your food out to you (take away) and are very helpful if you eat at the restaurant upstairs. A really good selection of curries, not overly expensive!

We ate at The Clove last night for a Valentine treat. Overall the food was average but the service was so slow. My partner had Prawn Cocktail to start which he said was fabulous. I had onion bhajis which were very dry and I had to ask for some sauce whereas most restaurants normally bring the sauce with it. My... More

I would rate this as the best curry house in Bristol, a hidden gem tucked away in southville. I have never had a bad curry from here and it has cured many a problem in my life. What I like best is the fact they do not deliver and my friends don't have a car so if they want a... More

Dined last night at this restaurant, and was very disappointed. The restaurant itself is very nice, the waiting staff rather miserable,but efficient. For starters I had the sheesh kebab, very bland and dripping in red food colouring. The main course of lamb dopiaza was a complete disappointment. Cubes of very tough 'lamb' in a watery bland gravy. This dish is... More

After Christmas wanted a good old fashion curry. Book a table for 4 greeted by the staff and welcomed into the bar area. Front of house great. Seated on time and our order placed enjoyed the food and amazed how all the staff were very pleasant. Great night out close to home.

My husband & I had heard good things about this place and was eagerly looking for somewhere that we could go to on a regular basis before a Friday night rugby game. On this particular occasion we arrived just as it opened and were seated upstairs. I can not fault the staff & service but the food was a real... More

A good local Indian resturant. Been going there for years and have never been disappointed. Staff and service are superb, welcoming, and always make sure the visit is comfortable and up to a high standard. Good value for money and some cracking tasting food! Highly recommend.
