One of the best in ipswich

Came here on a quiet Wednesday evening with some work colleagues. The menu is extensive and there are some very interesting items on the menu. I chose to play safe and had the king purée starter followed by a chicken tikka. Some of colleagues were a bit more adventurous. The food was very nice and... read more

The first thing that struck me about The Dhaka was the size of the choice of food on the menu. The second thing was the size of the table - where were the curry dishes, breads, rice and drinks going to go? The food was good, the staff were strangely absent for some of the time, but it was a...

Brilliant service, swift service, starters were amazing! But my main was a bit of a let down, my lamb was dry and tough. But everything else was lovely, will be returning!

We have not had a good curry in ipswich for years and had gave up looking until friends took us to Dhaka. The food is fantastic. How nice it is to order king prawns and actually get them instead of baby shrimps!!! Great sauces, heat and flavour and a good take out menu as well!!!

After meeting up with a bunch of old work mates we decided it was time for a Curry. We hadn't booked a table but were welcomed by very friendly staff. Starting with a plate of poppadoms and pickles we scanned the menu for something different to try. 2 of us went for a lamb dish and other opted for a... More

I have been using the Dhaka at least once a week for the past 10 years and in all that time have only had one not so good meal. Their quality remain constant and myself and my fellow diners have always commented that the food is superb. It is slightly more expensive than other Indian restaurants but there are also... More

Last 25 years regular enough to visit Dhaka. Like vintage wine, food and service consistence under same ownership makes us keep going and enjoying takeaway time to time. Real people real food. It was very good Saturday night. Well done to team and owner.
