Visited Mayflower Saturday before lockdown. Received a warm welcome, good service and excellent meal. Had a takeaway meal last Saturday again, excellent food and meal was ready on time. Well done Mayflower.

Had the most wonderful meal here today. Me and family enjoyed the Sunday buffet (order as much as you like from set menu) I've eaten Indian food for 30 years but this was up there with the best I've had. Pleased we gave it a...go and will be back for sure. Also to top it off 5 star hygiene rating !!! Don't see that too often these days. Images include our bill which was for 4 people and a ridiculous amount of dishes ..well done guysMore

We ate here tonight. Place is very shabby inside and outside. Staff looked unkempt and not at all smart. We waited one hour for our food to arrive.it wasn't busy, only another two tables were in there.I had chicken tikka and had to ask for...salad. Portions are small and very salty. Wont be going there ever again. Worst indian meal ever. Didn't even get a chocolate with the bill.....unheard of.....and only got £15 discount instead of £20 as it was weds eat out to help out!!!!!More

Came in here with few friends. Waiters did not seem interested in serving us what so ever. Waited 15 minutes for drinks to arrive and another 10 minutes for poppadoms. Food was ok but service is very poor. Shame really as the restaurant does look...nice from the outside.More

It is good news that you have reopened for indoor dining and we were so pleased to be able to book a table with you on Tuesday last so we could enjoy a lovely meal as we celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. As ever, the...food and service were first class and we were full of gratitude when we realised that you had opened the restaurant for us ( as you are usually closed on a Tuesday) just so we could celebrate our special day. Thank you so much and we will see you again soon. Dennis and MaureenMore

Had a Takeaway (obviously due to corona), very well organised in restaurant to allow us to collect the food. Strict distancing, masks, gloves. Well organised!! Food was delicious, very good indeed. Great flavours, fresh and not too oily like some Indian takeaways. This was our...first time at Mayflower, can't wait to eat from here again!!!!! Well done and thank youMore

we went to this place on the spur of the moment,called a couple of friends who live just round the corner from the mayflower we all turned up nat 7.30pm on a Saturday and we had the place pretty much to ourselves popadoms came up...quick enough as did the drinks lagers and vodkas, three ok starters and four assorted curries with rice nans and some more drinks the food was ok service a little on the slow side due to the phoned takeaway orders taking priority, the food was just ok nothing special wont be rushing back there is some parking to the rear and some on street, you could squeeze a wheelchair in just about we all thought the £100 pound bill a little on the high side for what we had eaten and drankMore

Ordered a delivery which took nearly two hours to arrive. Unacceptable. The food is ok but Pink Chilliz down the road is much, much better. The mayflower is also more expensive. It’s a shame because I would not go to the restaurant now based on...their delivery service.More

We really love this place after trying several Indian restaurants in the area we have settled on this one. Very friendly staff food has taste and good portions we have takeaways but prefer to eat in we took 8 of our friends there a month...ago and they all said it’s was very nice and tasty. I’ve noticed that it is being refurbished well at least I hope it is as we will miss it if closes. ThanksMore
