Best by far.

Since a change in ownership late last year the food is absolutely fantastic, the menu is not to big but covers most tastes including traditional Indian meals. Staff are not the best but I would give them 99%for effort, seriously they brilliant, gone are the days of the plain tables it's now... read more

The food was OK, but not so good as the previous owner. The restaurant seems to have attempted to go "up-market" but unfortunately, the food quality does not match the increased pricing. The service, however, is excellent. The banter and attention to detail is really good.

As it was raining our party of 4 didn't want to walk from the Bull to the Goa as planned so tried the passage instead. So pleased we did I haven't tried the passage in years preferring the Goa's nicer surroundings but what a brilliant surprise the food was 1st class and the service great - would highly recommend I...

Food is 90% better, this is my personal opinion, try for yourself and see if you agree. The waiting staff are still the same but much happier.

Went there last night for my birthday. Always liked this restaurant, staff are great. Now under new ownership. Quality of food (which was ok before) is much improved. Really good now! Even though we were a big party, they coped well and gave us really good service. Looking forward to the new menu which I believe is coming soon.

I have ordered numerous Indian take away meals from this restaurant and have always been very happy. I have been to several meals inside and have always been very happy with the meal but the décor and seating is more canteen than restaurant in my opinion.

The food from passage to India is always good. However... We ordered a takeaway and were told it would be half an hour, 45 mins later we phoned to see where it was and were told the delivery driver had just left. As we live about 150 ft from the restaurant we expected the driver to arrive within about 40... More

The quality of the food was really good, (judging by the amount of 'take-away's' going out, the main stay of the turnover is from take-ways during the week or certainly following a bank holiday). I was sat at the front of the restaurant and I think there were other tables around toward the kitchen but I counted 40 covers were... More

I must admit that I stopped going here for a while due to moving but was pleasantly surprised by the very reasonable price for a huge meal, which, actually, tasted very good indeed. The staff bent over backwards for my friend and I to be helpful and humourous and, like with another local restaurant, we weren't forced to rush which... More

The deco is old fashioned but what you expect in what I would call a traditional India restaurant. The waiters were tentative and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The condiments that went with popadoms were average. They need to spice them up, bring them to life as they could be described as boring. The onion barges are fantastic,... More
