Rude. Dismissive. Disappointed. Left hungry. Staff amused by complaints. Would not go back. Not much else to say.

A very comfortable restaurant, with excellent well-cooked food. Particularly enjoyed the chutney tray! Staff pleasant and helpful, and ambience just right.

We ate at Aftab whilst staying in Ironbridge Gorge with friends. The service was good and the food to a very high quality. A varied menu with both traditional and contemporary choices. Restaurant was busy with a constant stream of people arriving to collect take away meals. Definitely a restaurant I would revisit

I love the Aftab, the food is amazing! Also very very tasty! The staff are so friendly and welcoming! The cheese naan is fantastic and the poppadom condiments are the best I've ever tasted! Couldn't recommend this place enough!

Yes, friendly staff which always makes a difference when you visit a restaurant but the food was slightly better than average, the korma was ok, pappodums ok though the peshwari nan was too doughy and hardly any coconut in it. It's ok, appreciations to the staff for making an effort.

We have been visiting Aftabs for the past 25 years on and off and at the moment whatever they have done they have got it spot on! We have always enjoyed going to the restaurant but from last year and the preceding year the food was not up to its usual standard. Perhaps a change in chef? We have returned... More
