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

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.

My husband and I booked a table here for 8 o' clock on Valentines Day. When we phoned to book a table we were made aware that it was going to be very busy and that they were almost fully booked - which was good for organisation. On the night they were right it was completely busy which is always... More

Thank you for your review and for your wonderful comments. The buffet has now changed to £7.95 and stays the same price throughout the day up until the evening, there are no hidden charges. The reason why we used to lower the price to £6.95 between 3pm and 4pm was because this was the quiet period and it was used... More

The food is consistently fantastic, and it continues to be my favourite place for curry. My partner and I had a table booked on valentines night. The restaurant was heaving and therefore the service was slower than I'd experienced on previous visits. Which was a little frustrating but not unbearable. The long wait aside, we both had a lovely evening... More
