Good out of town curry!

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... read 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

I found my food to be brilliant. The guys attentive & gentle service is a fantastic experience. As a celebration for my birthday, one of the staff treated us to some kind words & some festive tunes via his solo harmonica skills... (A must see experience before you croak)

We bought a voucher via Groupon for The Burj, we decided to visit on a Sunday evening as the voucher was only valid Sun-Thu. The restaurant is very grand and decorated tastefully. It was vey quiet, i am guessing due to it being a Sunday and being in the middle of nowhere? The service was very good, the waiter was... More

Been here a number of times and feel the quality in comparison to other Indians warrants the additional price. The venue itself is modern and stunning and the service we received was top notch. Both of our dishes were fantastic with the meat amazingly tender. I would recommend this as the best eat in Indian in the Swindon area.

I have had takeaway a couple of times from this place. It's pretty good for a curry outside of a major metropolis, e.g. Birmingham, London. I had the baby aubergine curry which was really good, also tried the gunpowder and Goan fish. Nice decor inside the restaurant too.

I went to The Burj with my partner for a relaxed Friday night meal. On arrival the staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to ensure that we were okay and were happy with the menu and the items on there, perhaps a little too much for some people as even after we had said we didn't need any...
