I booked this on line and because of the large no of friends attending I changed reservation twice with ease, I requested tables to be arranged in a square so everybody could talk to each other rather than just the person opposite, again they accommodated us with this request also. Service was excellent, staff were friendly and food was delicious,... More

We were excited to find a restaurant that had such good reviews. We are a family of six visiting from America, but I grew up in England so I know my way around. I was sad that the England I was showing my kids was one like this that would take advantage so blatantly of visitors, and charge for items... More

We enjoyed talking to you. We charge for the pappadums and accompaniments as shown on the menu together. This is because we use the finest/quality ingredients to balance the flavour with the palate. You had a large Saag Poneer which is mild. Which restaurant did you visit in London that the bill was £60? Yes in London and depending on... More

From the outside this restaurant would be one that I would walk by. Looks definitely like a take away. However, once we took the plunge we were wonderfully surprised. Some of the dishes are quite different than your usual Indian food. My husband and I regularly visit this restaurant now and are working our way through the menu! We have... More

I have takeaways from The Lancer quite regularly and it is consistently of a high standard. But tonight it was absolutely fantastic. Whoever the chef on duty is tonight. Thank you. It was about the best food I have eaten in years. Well done.

I love the lancer we have had lunch, dinner and takeaways and the kids love it too. Ingredients are always fresh and I love the chicken pasanda and dhansak....not that it's easy to choose favourite dishes. The staff are always friendly.

Unusual spices, beautifully presented. This was a great meal. I cannot wait to go back. I had the prawn patia puri, followed by king prawn danhsak. There was such a distinct flavour to this, and, not too sweet. Lovely.

Had dinner here on Saturday night. The food was ok (ish). It was very expensive! Popadoms, 2 curries and 2 rices with a bottle of water (a small bottle) was £27. The Rogan Josh had a tin of tomatoes in it and very little meat. Will not be going back there.
