I was longing for a home cooked style, authentic East-Indian, Punjabi (North Indian) meal....and I normally don't find it when I'm traveling abroad...but here my wife and I totally lucked out and loved this place so much that we came back for a second meal later during out stay. The waiters are the most polite spoken waiters in the world...and... More

Very good Indian food. We traveled to India several times and it is difficult to find the authentic Indian cooking anywhere in europe. Even in The UK its "westernized". That is why there are many good Indian previews here and Indian visitors in this restaurant. Cause it tastes what it should taste like. Then combined with an excellent service and... More

Not sure why the reviews were great. We were not impressed about the quality or taste of the food we ordered. The assistant waiter that served us the water and cleaned the table smelled awful. Ambience was nice and the service was fast. I would not recommend this place.

A small restaurant with not many tables. The menu is almost unreadable as the font size is very micro. How about the food? We had a Vegetarian Samosa - much to big and quite dry-make three or four smaller ones instead more delicate. Nan Bread - too thick Tandoori Chicken - very dry and we forgot to ask for boneless...

Came here on the off-chance as it was very close to our hotel - and didn't regret it for a minute. Easily on a par with some of the better Indian restaurants in the UK. The food was high quality, plentiful and good value. I was asked how spicy I wanted my Chicken Chilli Masala - and when I said... More

Passage to India has a Beautiful, Hygienic Ambience. The owners as well as staff are extremely helpful and friendly. They suggest and serve food as if it was their own family. Food was wonderful. Just the right amount of spices and oil. Was delicious. Highly recommended. Please do visit.

We came to this restaurant based on all the good reviews seen on this site and the food did not disappoint by its quality. Every dish we tried was very tasteful and everyone in our group enjoyed their dining experience. To give this place a 5-star, we feel the portions should have been a little larger. For example, our shrimp... More
