Best Indian Restaurant

We have eaten at the Ivory Tusk many times and always had excellent food and service. The staff are always courteous, we have never had to wait more than 5 minutes and the meals are always as you would expect. Prices are acceptable- not cheap but definitely not expensive either.

Had a lovely time, thank you once again, polite staff and good food, you can't go wrong. The owner needs to smile more often rather than stressing out. You have a good team. Keep up the good work.

I went here with my wife and daughter during our holiday to Drayton Manor. We were greeted well and shown to a table quickly. They engaged our seven year old daughter in conversation several times during our stay there which was good. Food was excellent and there was plenty of it. Service was attentive but not a nuisance. Bill was... More

We used to visit here often and found that they were brilliant at tandoori/shashlik type dishes, but their sauce dishes all had the same unpleasant aftertaste and I could never place what it was, so we stopped visiting. We decided to give it another go on Friday evening and I ordered garlic prawn balti. This meant that the garlic slices... More

**Takeaway** Very disapointed in Ivory Tusk. Our friends recommend it highly but I cannot write a good review. The chips were soggy and wet. The pakora starters were the same. Rice was hard and the popadoms stale. It fealt like it had all been mocrowaved which is a lot cheaper from the supermarket. I won't be going again.

We visited this restaurant for a birthday meal and were very pleased. Contemporary decor, and a modern Indian menu. Delicious choices and excellent friendly service. Not expensive - give it a go.

This is the fifth time we have visited this restaurant and have never been let down yet. The service is first class and the food from the starters to the desert was well presented and tasted beautiful. The staff are very friendly and attentive. We had a variety of meals amongst the group and everybody enjoyed the food. The flavours... More
