Visited on a Weds night and took advantage of the stop the clock menu. (I think its £6 at 6pm and £7.50 at 7:30pm) Im not the biggest fan of Indian food but was pleasantly surprised at how much I actually liked the food. My two mates had a madras each and sweated in areas I didnt think were possible... More

Have been around a lot of curry houses in Cheltenham, and having lived in Birmingham where good curry is a cheap and delicious staple i had always been disappointed. However we stumbled upon this place by chance on a bike ride and I must say it is a solid curry house,. Varied menu with a selection of heat levels and... More

Food is excellent. Prices are fair. The "stop the clock menu" is an outstanding idea. The staff are polite and helpful.

They do a beat the clock at certain times. Arrive 6pm get a meal for £6, 7pm £7 etc.! Good food and very good service. Limited menu for beat the clock but you can opt for the full menu and pay their normal prices. Gets very busy early evening.

I have eaten at the Polash for many year's now, eating in or taking away it is by far the best Indian Restaurant in Gloucester and believe me I have tried more than my fair share. The food is excellent the staff always friendly and eager to please. Definitely worth the 5 star review I have given it

I might have been unlucky as it was very busy when I visited but that's no excuse. Warm bottles of Kingfisher that had never seen the inside of a fridge were served with no apology, anywhere should be able to serve cold bottled beer. The poppadoms were those you heat up yourself from a pack and weren't freshly made, always... More

dylan m, Manager at Polash Indian Restaurant, responded to this review

In response to your review: I am very sorry that the usual standards of the Polash seem to have slipped, unfortunately at your visit. It was busy but at the Polash we're used to that. In any case that wouldn't be an excuse that I would rely on. The bottled lager was served by an inexperienced waiter even after staff... More

Was visiting a friend. He suggested a takeaway curry from Polash, his local Indian restaurant. He ordered Chicken Tikka Massala with pilau rice. I had Chicken Tikka Dansak with special rice. When I rang the order in, the person I spoke with was very polite and cheerful. He told me when the food would be ready. When my friend had... More
