Another of my favourite haunts that I decided to visit. Was going for Sunday lunch but it got too late for that as I had been out walking and worked up a very healthy appetite and could smell all the Indian restaurants come to live as I walked along Magdalen Street. I was not disappointed - the food was as... More

Been coming here for 5 years now and the food is always good, service impeccable and the setting relaxed.... Nothing has changed and still my favourite, and the takeaways are just as good!

Our large party enjoyed a lovely meal for my husband's 40th. The staff could not have been more accommodating & there was lots of witty banter. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was friendly. I would definitely recommend the restaurant for a family occasion.

On the corner...welcomed in. The place has an odd feel about it and it isn't the most well maintained place but all of 3 of us cleared our plates. Would return..

After wandering around the area on a warm summer evening i settled for the menu in the Passage to India, it should have been a warning to me that the place was nearly empty but i soldiered on. The heavily perspiring waiter took me to a table, their was a couple in the corner deliberating over their menu, something that... More

We ordered lots of food for delivery, and it arrived at exactly the time they promised (if not a little earlier!) The food came hot and we were given a few cheeky extras which is always a pleasant surprise! The Tandoori Chicken was especially delicious, but on a whole the food was really yummy, the service was great and we... More

Went with my best friend for our monthly meal out, did not disappoint! Used to always go to Ali Tandoori, but since Ali retired that has gone totally downhill. The passage delivered yet another tasty meal, with impeccable service. Doesn't matter if you eat in or take say the quality is the same, highly recommended!

Thank Janice H
