Went this evening. We were very disappointed. The food was bland and not sure what had been done to the prawns but they had no taste. The service was beyond outrageous. We were seated and had placed our order and still not one word spoken to us by a member of staff. It felt like they decided we were weekend... More

The service received was unfriendly. Could not make eye contact with my partner and did not speak to her at all. The food was awful. One meal was bland and somehow emulsified and my meal was so hot I could not eat it although it was in the medium section of the menu. Did not feel welcomed at all. Always... More

Eurgh just awful,bland,no flavour. An awful lot of vegetables in curry to bulk it up in my opinion,very little chicken. Could not taste spices at all. Even the poppadums were poor a few days old to say the least. Worst curry and probably most expensive that I have had. Will not go back.

Tried this recommended restaurant last night and were very happy indeed ! Staff were very pleasant and attentive without being over-bearing. Menu was extensive. Had one of the set meals for 2 and really could have shared one meal between the two of us ! Good pickles, interesting starter, hot and spicy main (although rice could have been a tad... More

My wife and I have just eaten here and the food was quite poor. I had chicken pasanda and it contained more onion than chicken and was not very spicey. When they brought out our food they had forgotten one of the main dishes and the vegetable side dish was very dry - it looked as though it had been... More

Just returned from Magna Tandoori Indian Restaurant where we have had a fabulous meal. The best onion bhaji ever followed by garlic lamb, the lamb was delicious and so tender. The staff were very friendly and a nice touch at the end was offer of complimentary coffee. Not sure what else I can say except highly recommend.
