Firstly the food here is fine, the restaurant seems clean and nice inside with plenty of room. However the service is terrible. We had to wait ages to get served, the waiters are very morose and miserable, the waiters stand around watching you eat and the second you put your forks down they rush over and are taking your plate...

This place is 2 minutes from my house, yet since the onion bargee and kitchen sink plug saga here a few years back. I always travel passed this Indian to go others - however tonight I thought I would try again.... Big Mistake! Popadoms and pickles, pickles really cheap and taste like cardboard. Main meal, the garlic in one curry... More

3rd May 2014 Firstly the chutneys are very cheap quality, bright orange, transparent and yoghurt dip bland.We had to wait for over an hour for food to arrive, no apology or offer to top up drinks during the wait. The restaurant half busy, seem to prioritise take aways. Food arrived after an hour and 15 mins. The butter chicken tasted... More

Had not visited this restaurant for a while until four of us (all seniors) went on Thursday 3 April 2014. From a good menu with many "new" items on it, we selected 3 starters (one of us knows their limits!) and four main courses. It was not too long before our meals were served. All were well presented and all... More

We recently ate at the Cove Tandoori. Service was impeccable and friendly. attentive but not over the top. We ordered "familiar" food are were all pleased with what came from the kitchen. Hot, fresh and very flavoursome. Well worth a visit.

I love this place. Best curry I have had since I moved back to Fleet. The service can be a bit slow, especially when they are not busy (why is that?). But the food is just wonderful! I asked for a Lamb Shaslik (not on the menu) and they were very happy to oblige. Their Sag Paneer was also fab... More

Food is wonderfully tasty and a good variety on the menu. Staff are polite and friendly and at at tentative, you just might be waiting a while to grab staff attention for the bill at the end.

First went when it opened in 1981 and asked if they had a tandoor, and happily stunned when they not only said Yes but invited me in the kitchen to see it. And their standard of fresh ingredients and cooking has been maintained ever since....it is still consistently the best tasting Indian in town.

We visited this restaurant when staying with family in Farnborough. It was highly recommended by them and didn't disappoint. Staff were ridiculously friendly and helpful from the moment we set foot in the door. The restaurant was very busy and the atmosphere was what you'd expect from a good well-loved Indian restaurant. We were shown to our tables and immediately... More

Have eaten here regularly over the last 5 years and can honestly say I have never had a bad meal here. The service is fantastic and it is very good value for money. There is a warm friendly atmosphere and you never feel rushed to finish your meal and leave. I have eaten here as part of a couple and... More
