I quite often order takeaways from this restaurant, as they deliver to the local area. We have been in a few times for sit-down meals and the staff have been absolutely great, really lovely and know how to have a good laugh with us all, whilst still remaining professional.

I ate here this week whilst looking for a different Indian restaurant in Ironbridge. When I saw the plastic almost standard "Indian food for English people" menu I thought I might have made a big mistake. I was however pleasantly surprised as the food was excellent. The pickles that came with the popadoms were not the standard "made for English... More

Just yum, started with a popadom picnic, plenty of sauces all good. I had a lamb pathia & asked for it to be madras hot & it was utterly perfect, the other 3 people I was with all enjoyed their's. Perfect portion size & great service all at a reasonable price. Definitely worth a visit (for curry fans).

After a long drive, we caught last orders for dinner at Aftab Tandoori and Balti restaurant in Ironbridge. Nice welcome and atmosphere, polite staff and really tasty food. We had lamb tikka and chicken chilli masala balti, the flavours were distinctive unlike some restaurants where everything tastes the same. I've been here a few times now and I look forward... More

We ate at Aftab whilst staying in Ironbridge for the weekend. We had poppadoms to start with which were a little oily and the pickle tray was a bit bland, just onion chutney, mango chutney and lime pickle. We had puree and chaat starters which were ok but the main course was fabulous, I wished i'd just had the main... More

Food is good but not the sort of restaurant you would choose for a romantic meal or a celebration. It's more of a "lets find somewhere to eat place "if you know what I mean. Gets busy at turning out time so can be a little loud with drunken revellers calling in for takeaway. Food is good though and I... More
