Well established unpretentious curry house, with really excellent food , reasonably priced, their Bombay potatoes are something else and the baltis delicious without being overladen with Ghee, cream and garlic. Pleasant attentive staff .A gem.

Having been told on a very busy sunday that there were many places to eat, we stumbled upon one of the nly places that was open at 8pm. We probably landed on the best one by default? Great little Indian Restaurant, good service and very reasonable prices when compared with the many places in Ironbridge that know how to charge... More

Visited on a Thursday evening in February whilst we were staying in Ironbridge. Didn't need to book, but from what I hear booking is probably needed at more popular times. The staff were very approachable and helpful, giving advice and assistance with what to choose from the menu. A good sign was that they didn't just opt for the most... More

We visited this restaurant earlier in the year & had a pleasant evening meal. Now living nearby decided we'd have a takeaway delivery from them, hands down the worst meal to ever be delivered to our door. Lukewarm, tasteless & worst of all swimming in grease. Literally the brown bag was dripping at the bottom. all the containers were covered... More

Visited on a quiet wednesday night with a couple of colleagues. Wasn't busy but the service was slow. Chose this one for a change as we had been to Pondicherry a couple of times before. Although it was nice there it was nothing special and certainly not worth the price charged. At Aftab the food is on an equal footing(Not... More

New to the area this was a recommended reaturant. Not sure why. We ordered a multi course takeaway and were very disappointed. Tough over cooked lamb. Powdery chicken (the way it goes when it's been frozen). Some of the sources were ok but if the meat is poor it detracts from the whole thing. Shame and we may give it... More

We had a delivery from here a few months ago now but only just getting time to write the review. The food was disappointing, very oily, very bland Vindaloo way too hot to enjoy it unlike numerous other Vindaloos my partner has eaten, the Dhansak, was also bland and no real taste quite watery. Didn't enjoy the onion bhaji either... More
