This is a lovely place to eat the staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble so if you want the heat turned up or down they will do it, menu has everything and the bill will not make you cringe, wine and beers about what you would expect.

Just realised I never reviewed this place despite having been here a few times. We've eaten here after 22.30 a few times and always had excellent service and food. The king prawn jalfrezi was the best I ever had . If you want a late night meal in Ipswich town centre please go here! It's fantastic x

The food and service is brilliant here. We arrived late 10:30pm and thought they'd turn us away but very friendly and welcoming. I had a chicken korma and partner had the lamb corner. Nans and sides were really good very fresh and hot. Looking forward to returning.

Went here for a 40th Birthday of a friend in the back conservatory area, which was a lovely area and good atmosphere. Couldn't fault the staff who served our tables, they were friendly, helpful and professional. All the food was delicious, hot and came out in good time despite the large party we were in. The only fault I have... More

Been looking everywhere for a place in Ipswich to rival The Curry Inn at Needham and THANK GOD we found this place. Food was amazing and service excellent. If your looking for somewhere authentic then this is the place for you. They even offer you a cheeky shot after your meal! Will be back!! Thanks Dhaka.

I love the Dhaka, and during a repeat visit last night I realised that I had never reviewed it here. Exceptionally good service, very professional and friendly, and the food is excellent and a very reasonable price. They are an established institution in Ipswich in my opinion, and I've very glad they are!

We came to this restaurant last night as we were staying in a hotel in the local vicinity and boy were we happy with our choice. The food was well cooked, tasty and very authentic. Not a hint of grease just subtle spices and plenty of it. Being from London we have a wide choice of Indian restaurants, which are... More

We had a business orientated event here and as ever the staff made us welcome. It was a Monday night so fairly quiet and this meant the staff were on hand to help with anything. The food was tasty, very tasty and quickly delivered. It was really good food.

Visited last night for my friends birthday along with her family and friends. We were a large group of about 10, this did not phase them. A few arrived early and got drinks at the bar and sat outside the back in the seating area, which was very nice. We sat at our table and the waiters promptly asked us... More
