Outstanding

Went to the Dhaka for my Brother's birthday meal, and it didn't disappoint. Fantastic menu, with something for everyone and really personable service. Straight into my Top 3 favourite restaurants.

Had the most wonderful meal here last weekend. You have to try the chicken tikka poore BUT then you can only manage a dessert it is so filling and tasty. Seriously also tried to eat a biriani but it defeated me and had to take it away as a doggy bag. Service attentive, professional and friendly. Portions huge - all... More

Yes! After the great day finished in Dhaka. What a great welcome and service all the way. Food was awesome, not to spicy as we request. Very happy.

We visited here after a trip to the Regent. Ipswich seemed deserted for a Friday night, two weeks before Christmas. However the Dhaka was full, always a good sign. The service is top notch. Staff leave a good break between courses and you don't feel at all rushed. We opted for poppadoms, skipped starters and went straight onto the main... More

The Dhaka is always our go-to restaurant for birthdays, celebrations etc, because we know that it's always going to be brilliant. The service is amazing, very friendly, attentive, and there's always a lot of staff on which means you're well attended and you don't have to wait a long time for anything. Now the food, well it's absolutely gorgeous. I'm... More

We used to be regulars at the Dhaka. Many years ago (probably about six or seven) we had a very poor meal which was unusual. Not sure for the reason, perhaps a stand in chef however certainly inferior to what we we used to and expecting. Wrote to the manager, and the matter was dealt with most professionally. We were...

My husband and I visited The Dhaka last night and had a really lovely meal. Everything was cooked very nicely and my husband's dhansak was one of the best I've tried in years. The Peshwari nan was so fluffy and scrumptious. The service was excellent too - remembering that I needed new cutlery. I know that sounds a bit daft... More

The Dhaka has been our favourite Indian restaurant for many years. Never had a bad meal there & last nights was the best yet. Superb food, superb service, the guys there are really friendly & helpful. Highly recommended.
