Aftab is a lovely small restaurant with a brilliant atmosphere with friendly customers and staff. This I think is because a lot of the customers are locals or regulars either way they return because the food is great. Regular menu with a difference, not your normal bog standard meals and the highlight of the menu is the chefs special meals... More

This is such a fantastic Indian and most definitely one of my favourites. The service is always exceptional and the food is always to its highest standards and delivered to your table in no time. The only improvement would be for Aftabs to get wifi as the struggle for signal in Ironbridge is hard. However, we will always return.

I ate here with a colleague whilst on business. It was late on a Sunday evening so was very quiet. The staff were very friendly and chatty and gave some good recommendations on drinks and joined in a bit of banter with ourselves which is refreshing when working away. The food was great and served in good time. Will definitely... More

What a treat! Staff outing to Aftab and we were very pleased with the food, warm welcome and service. From our popadom starter through to our main meal, everything was first class. When we need another treat dish, Aftab will be our next stop.

The food was pleasant and the atmosphere welcoming; we were on a short break to Ironbridge and we like to eat out when on holiday. Some aspects of the menu were very different from those we've had in other Indian restaurants but everything was very enjoyable, the staff were friendly and the prices reasonable.
