Another good Sunday buffet today. Service was friendly and staff were attentive but not too intrusive. Restaurant got busier later on but when we went to the buffet it had a good choice of dishes. Sometimes supply can be outstripped by demand meaning empty dishes which can be frustrating. Will be returning again.

Were so impressed by our first time in February that we visited again for another family celebratory meal. Not quite as good this time. Minor issues with a wobbly table and a hair in one of the desserts and we felt that the service had dipped a little from our previous visit. Nevertheless the food was excellent and the bill... More

Went today 19/04/15 just because we were in Long Melford and wanted lunch. Love Indian food but had never done a buffet. It was fabulous, fresh flavours and a mix of different recipes. Service was lovely and the price was great. I have had many Indian meals, even Michelin star and I have to say this was up there. Well... More

We live only a few hundred yards from the Melford Valley Tandoori and often eat there. Always found the food very good, service attentive and friendly. As they say, if the locals use a restaurant regularly it must be good.

Melford Valley would be the jewel in their crown! We live locally and have used this restaurant for around 5 years for both eating in and take aways. I travel for my job and regularly eat curry while I'm staying away, I've yet to find anything that rivals the quality of the food produced by Melford Valley. It is just... More

OK - here goes, and I know my curries dining around the UK. Decided to go here as it had won some awards. Couldn't get the menu to open on line so went in to order. Staff friendly and helpful and there were quite a few people waiting for take away food orders and there is little room for people... More

Thank you for your review and for your honesty, I am glad you enjoyed most of your meal and that you did not have to wait further for your food. Our takeaway menu and our restaurant menu are different, the takeaway menu consists of traditional British curries that you will find in most places whereas our restaurant menu is our... More

Heard that this restaurant had received awards, so tried the Sunday Buffet. Starters were pathetic and some of the meat dishes were dried out. The rice was nice! Service was "relaxed" and there wasn't much of a welcome for new customers. Sorry to be negative but we expected better. Finally, please turn up the heating.

I have taken all your comments into consideration and have now made a few changes. Unfortunately the time you came in I was on a break and could not therefore meet and greet you... More
