“small friendly restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Good value, friendly restaurant. Good with kids. Cant fault the prices. Its only small so probably best to book ahead. We eat as a family of 5 for under 40 pounds, not sure were else youcould do that.

“Beautiful food, friendly staff!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We go to the restaurant on an almost monthly basis. The food is beautiful and they always cater for our needs and can customize any meal for your taste. The staff are always very pleasant and welcoming. A special mention is required for the hosts, Tariq and Ses who always go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your meal. It is very inexpensive and you get free popadums and pickle tray to start, an excellent place to take the family or to have a take away.
A True Taste of India does not receive enough credit that it deserves and it is the curry central of Leigh!
We always look forward to our next visit.

“Great food and lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We go to The True Taste regularly .....not because the food is good value for money (but it is !), not for the nice decor, not because it is local......but because of the warmest welcome to EVERYONE and the superb attention to detail in pleasing their customers.
This is a lovely , intimate , friendly restraunt that needs more tables to accomodate the wealth of diners that return time and time again.

“Unique in Leigh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This place is a little gem. It only has a few tables and the night we were in, there were no other diners. Notwithstanding this, the manager and his chef produced a truely tasty meal, typically Indian sized portions (massive), well seasoned, well presented.

A few locals pop in to pick up their takeaways and have a beer at the bar, but this adds to the charm of the place (the manager knows them all by name!).

Would recommended, if you feel like something slightly different.

“Top Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

First time I have been and was very impressed with the service and the food was top quality. The two lads who run the floor can't be more helpful and polite. Highly recommend.
