We thought we'd treat ourselves to a rare takeaway and knew that the Madubhan had a good reputation. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement! We paid £60 for a takeaway and threw 3 chicken korma's, a chicken tikka and an aubergine bahjee...in the bin, as they were so inedible. Such a shame, we had high hopes too.More

We had a booking on a Friday night to celebrate two birthdays in the family. We had been to this restaurant previously but many years ago when it was superb. We arrived to a mediocre welcome from a lady that struggled with her English. We...were put to one side until able to confirm our booking with the maitre’d who was on the phone on our arrival and looked very busy. There were quite a few people waiting for takeaway orders which I’m sure doesn’t help. The restaurant had been refurbished since we were last there and looked lovely - immaculate decor. Once at our table, we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. We ordered drinks but the children’s drinks didn’t arrive. They eventually arrived after asking for a third time and 20 mins later. We also found that these drinks had been added to our bill twice which added insult to injury. Once our party arrived in full, poppadoms were ordered which did arrive quickly. Main courses were ordered soon after but these took over an hour (70 mins) to arrive for the adults and 45 mins for the children. The restaurant looked full but that’s not good enough. Add to that just generally sloppy service where naan breads that had been ordered didn’t arrive with the food, we struggled to get attention when needing drinks or the bill etc. I would say that the service is inconsistent because the lady who took our order was very good but the kitchen is clearly overloaded and the rest of the waiting staff need to be more attentive and listen to what is being ordered. The food however was very delicious but that alone is not enough so it’s unlikely we’ll be returning. Hopefully this will be taken on board because this restaurant has a captured audience in Liss with little other choice but I do hope it returns to its glory days.More

A good friend had talked about this restaurant on several occasions with me when we got talking about curries. I’d promised myself I would either eat in or get a takeaway so last night (10/01/20) I did. Takeaway it was as I was still in...my work clothes. It’s a beautiful restaurant and I was struck by its cleanliness and decor. There is a nice bar and several people were sat at it having a drink. This looks great I thought. Several tables were already occupied and the staff were numerous and attentive. I was spoken to quickly and provided with a menu which is extensive. I was impressed by the different dishes and selected three main courses I’d never tried and three side dishes plus a coconut rice. Once home I promoted eating over a shower as I was excited. I plated up the duck yak-a-tan, Madhuban special chicken and jardaloo sali boti and partnered this with mushroom bhajee, sag aloo and tarka dall with the coconut rice. Well what a huge disappointment. Everything had little flavour and the only difference was I was either eating chicken or lamb. Admittedly the lamb was spectacularly tender but that was it. I seriously could have been eating anything. On the menu the special was described as a combination of all flavours but frankly I couldn’t taste any of them. The side dishes were no better, the tarka dall was bland and lacked any garlic, mushroom bhajee, well, just mushrooms. The best flavour was the sag aloo !! As for the coconut rice I found this extremely dry and unappetising. I was gutted. I think I must have had a one-off bad experience and it took the edge of my celebratory meal. I spoke to my friend after he asked how it was and he was more upset than me because he’d never had a bad experience and recommended it. Next time maybe I’ll do better. Willing to give it a second chance.More

We visited on Monday 30th December 2019 whilst staying in the nearby Old Thorns Hotel. We wanted to get out of the hotel complex for the evening and were longing for a decent Indian/Bangladeshi meal! The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food...was superb with a good selection on the menu. I wish this restaurant was in my home town as I cannot recommend highly enough.More

I was taking my family to lunch to celebrate my husbands birthday. Him and I and our 4 daughters. They are open from 12 -2.30 the chap on the phone said the kitchen closes at 2.30 i booked a table at 1pm. at 12.45 they...called me to remind me that the restaurant closes at 2.30. I said I would be there in a few minutes. I arrived the huge place was empty bar 3 tables. Instead of greeting us he wanted to know the name of the booking I looked around incredulously and said we had just spoken on the phone. At which point while my husband and daughters stood by the entrance yet again I was given a lecture about leaving when the restaurant closes at 2.30. I did not make displeasure known because we had travelled 18 miles to get there and did not want them to spoil the day. I was fuming and hurt inside however. We ordered and ate as quickly as we could and left at 2.28. The 4 tables before us were still seated. I understand the restaurant worrying had we been a group of drunk men after the footie rocking up just before they closed. I cannot believe I paid the bill to be treated and humiliated so badly.More

Six of us had booked up to eat here on Wednesday Evening 20 Nov 2019 at 1845. We parked up the road away from the restaurant. When we arrived at the front door we were given a lovely warm welcome. The service and staff from...here on in were just wonderful. The meals we all had were served very promptly and efficiently. I had actually opted for a Prawn starter followed by a really lovely King Prawn main. Honestly they were both really terrific and the flavours just incredible. I would say it is one of the best Indian meals I have ever had. Our bill for six people including two bottles of house white wine, starters, mains & deserts with two coffees was £190 so it averaged out with a tip at £70 per couple. I really can’t think of a negative but I will say that obviously the place was not packed, as it was a mid week visit and an early meal time. I had read some negative as well as positive TripAdvisor reviews before we came, and as far as we were all concerned, we only had positives and no negatives. Thank you for a really lovely evening we will be back again!More

The Madhuban has long been a favourite, but this was our first visit for a few years. The service still is as excellent as ever and the food is OK (the menu unchanged for perhaps 6-7 years) but the sense we had is that whilst...many other curry houses have improved the quality of the food served, the Madhuban has stayed the same and has been overtaken by these newer players. It would be a shame if this decline were to continue.More
