This was our first visit to The Burj, the food was so lovely and so nicely presented, nothing like your usual curry houses. The staff were very friendly and informative about the food. It was so good that I've now booked our office Christmas lunch there in December. My husband had the taster menu but don't be fooled, it's not... More

we decided to eat here last night but sadly it didn't live up to expectation. Only half the restaurant was open, so we sat in the back room along with 8 other people, and whilst the staff were very good it the room lacked any atmosphere, with nothing on the walls and no curtains or anything on the windows it...

Even though the Burj opens at lunchtime, you might wonder why with only the three of us in the restaurant and three front of house staff they can make it worth their while. Even with a surfeit of staff, confusion reigned over what should have been a simple order. There is at the back of the menu booklet a lunchtime... More

The problem with the Burj...is that you have to 'want to go there to go there'. That sounds a little strange, but its so far out of Swindon (a good 15 mins car journy) that you need to plan to visit. But once at the restaurant we found the food inventive and well presented. The curries were flavoursome and looked... More

Me and my partner went to the burj last night, both our main meals were cold on arrival to our table! The meal was very expensive for what it was! We won't ever be returning to the burj.

We booked last minute for the Burj on Valentines night and had a family meal with 2 young children. First of all the decor and layout of the restaurant is spacious and modern so you don't bang elbows with other diners as is common in these type of settings. The service was very good and dishes were nicely explained. The... More

My curry was 4 pieces of chicken which were not cooked through properly. Although the service was good the food seemed to be cheap cuts of meat and most definitely not worth the extra distance or the premium price
