We took a couple of our grandchildren to Rafu's, as our grandson said they had never been to a curry house before, so there was never going to be a debate, on which one we were going to take them to. As many locals are aware, we sadly lost Rafu, a true gentleman and part of Highworth's fabric, last year.... More

How good is this place eh? An excellent find. The food is outstanding and with great service. Can't fault the food quality. I almost don't want to write a review because I want to keep it secret and all to myself. It's not cheap in comparison to other Indian restaurants but is well worth it. The food is fresh, not...

I've eaten in many Indian restaurants, from Brick Lane to a Balti in Birmingham - and the meal I had a Rafu's last weekend was fabulous (and on my doorstep). Truly authentic and service was great. We had a warm welcome from all the staff, and were looked after so well, with lots of advice on their huge menu. Well... More

Meal was to be delivered for 6:30 - it arrived at 7:30 and was cold. I offered £60 vs £76 (it was a birthday meal for family, including... More

I have eaten here before and food was nice so we went for the takeaway option tonight but food arrived an hour later than requested and as we were not prepared to pay the full price for cold food it was returned uneaten. Very disappointed in their service and attitude. I will not use them again

At 5pm, the takeaway was ordered for 6.30pm delivery. It eventually turned up at 7.22pm, after 4 phone calls. It was cold and greasy. My husband called to complain and... More
