The Food Never Disappoints!

The food never disappoints and Max and Shakir are hospitality personified. My hat off to Chef Rahman - What a superb cook he is! I never read the menu - I know exactly what I want and with unerring accuracy, the kitchen always delivers...... Being "in the trade" (for 27 years) I know only too... read more

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2015 NEW

Ordered over the phone and collected in the early evening. Get home to find the rice dish ordered is not in the bag. Go back with the whole bag. Apologies and bag taken away and 5 or 10 minutes later it is returned. Not so much as a free papdom for the error. Home again and it is fairly obvious... More

Every single item tasted of rancid butter and sugar and nothing else. This is some of the worst food I have ever been served. I have never before found bread to be inedible. I was very hungry and the disappointment was great. Wine was ok, the beer was cold, the service was ok.

It had been a little while since I had experienced a nice Indian in Ely as many of the places that I used to enjoy seemed to have gone downhill. I had been recommended the Indian Garden by friends after they had read an article in the newspaper of rewards it had received for the good food. Me and my... More

I have to admit my expectations were not high when my brother said we were having an Indian in Littleport. It did not look much from the outside but I warmed to it when we went inside with its clean and contemporary décor and we received a warm welcome from the staff. The place was quite busy and had a...

The Indian Garden Littleport continually surpasses the unsurpassable! It is one of the very few restaurants that deserves a 5 Star+ The new dishes are truly superb. Only five miles out of Ely is surely, in fact, most certainly worth going to sample what is, in my experienced opinion, the pinnacle of Indian Cuisine.

We visited the Indian Garden whilst enjoying a long weekend in the area. We did not book but arrived shortly after it opened, on a Saturday, at which time it was still quiet. It has an interesting menu and the food arrived reasonably quickly and was piping hot. The quality of the food and its presentation was superb. The only... More
