One of my favourite places to go, the new menu is amazing! Love the huge amount of choice, definitely recommend the chicken lollie pops and lamb bhuna. We are always so looked after by all staff, quick service. Cannot fault the restaurant!

I had driven past the Burj a number of times and decided to give it a try with friends who live nearby. Our friends had heard some not do good things about the Burj but that predates the current owners who took over, I believe, in April 2016. From start to finish all the dishes delivered were freshly cooked and... More

visited the Burj with my wife to celebrate my birthday. The dish i had was delicious but the chicken was slightly dry and over cooked. Normally i would just ignore this as one of those things but my wife also complained that her chicken was over cooked. We had the same problem at a previous visit to the Burj The... More

Our young sons had not been to an Indian restaurant before so was great to get advice from the waiters on what was good for them to try. the food was very good and portions were ample and good value for...

Hadn`t visited this Indian restaurant for several years so as it was a convenient meeting place for an old friend and myself we decided to take the plunge Very pleasantly surprised considering some of the comments on here, and glad we chose it . Really tasty starters after the obligatory poppadoms and chutneys, and excellent mains to follow, ok I... More

Extensive menu, good choice of well cooked and presented Indian starters and main courses. Pleasant attentive service. A little expensive, but good food in clean well maintained surroundings. Most surprised to find this excellent restaurant in the middle of the country while walking the Ridgeway. Came back for a second visit!

The new chef has just served up a treat. Amazing take away food - fresh, hot and delicious. Lots of flavour. Having had a few take aways from the Burj, it was great to try some of the new items on the menu and definitely worth the slight price increase. Now a15% discount on take away, up from the 10%...

I'm just back from dinner at The Burj and it will be my last. I can only assume the restaurant has changed owners recently as lots of little things have changed, and all for the worse. The menu had changed, prices have gone up, the quality of the good has gone down. The service is worse, the finer details such... More

We had a delicious meal here for my husband's birthday. It is not the cheapest Indian but everyone felt that the service, the quality of the food and ambience definitely made it worth every penny. As our previous "family favourite" restaurant has now closed, the Burj has certainly replaced it for us, even if we have to go a little... More
