Good eats

Went in following the Christmas lights switch on for an early evening meal. The restaurant soon filled up which is often a good sign. The menu is basic but what is good. We had a varied meal and the portions were big enough to share. Good value and friendly service.

Went with a group of friends. restaurant not overly large but was busy. Decent speed of service and friendly staff. Food tasted good and was a reasonable cost - I will visit again. Recommended.

Ate here on our visit to Ironbridge. The waiters were very friendly and efficient. The food was very tasty, and a very good price too. The only thing I would say is that the waiters were maybe a bit too efficient. As soon as we had finished our poppadums, our starters arrived, and as soon as our starters had finished,... More

We visited as four friends first and formost the service from the waiters was excellent attentive polite and good fun however the food was at best average the Rogan Josh was bland no kick at all, the Madras sauce just killed off your taste buds and the samosas tasted like they had been frozen and re cooked. A good overall... More

Tried the Aftab for a takeaway after looking at trip advisor reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The food arrived hot and was really tasty and good quality. I don't know why it's taken me so long to find them. I will be using again but will also try the restaurant next time.

Had lovely meal here when visiting iron bridge couldn't fault service or staff just beware as popperdoms are brought to the table without staff asking you if you want them as other restaurants give you these free of charge this restaurant doesn't they are added to the bill

Seriously great food. After becoming underwhelmed with my local curry house we tried the aftab.....Will certainly be returning again. The lamb sagwala was absolutely lovely as was the chana fried rice - plenty on the menu still to try and looking forwards to our next visit.

We ate at this restaurant both nights of our two night break at Ironbridge as the food was so good and the staff attentive and friendly. It is a small low key establishment but offers Indian food such as proper Baltis in proper Karai dishes rather than the new style "Contemporary Cusine" that seems to be popping up everywhere. Try...
