As two oldies who didnt like Indian food we had a very enjoyable evening at The Lime Tree i was talked into trying a curry and even though i dont know which it was i enjoyed it very much. Hubby however stuck too roast chicken...and chips which he enjoyed very much. We were a party of 14 and the service was excellent nothing was too much trouble and the evening was finished off with a Birthday Cake and a rendition of HAPPY BIRTHDAY led by mine host.well done THE LIME TREE and thank you.More

Ate here yesterday and had a fantastic meal. The service was also good. The only thing I didn’t like is the next table we’re playing videos on their phone loud. It would have been nice if the staff had asked them to turn them down...as it was really distracting.More

Delicious as always! Just had another takeaway and, as ever, it arrived promptly & was delicious. They definitely are putting the same effort into their takeout menu/cooking as they always did in their restaurant. Compliments to the chef!

Got a takeout tonight King Prawn Rogan Josh, this is one of the best meals I have had for ages, fantastic flavours fresh and very tasty. If you want a treat to cheer yourself up order from the Lime Tree. Longer wait time at weekends...so try ordering mid week.More

We visited on a Monday evening having wanted to try this restaurant for a while. Unbeknownst to us the restaurant was taking part in the eat out to help out scheme so we got an absolute bargain. The food was absolutely faultless and the staff...were doing their utmost to cater to a busy restaurant. Unfortunately a large group of young men were on a table behind, they were loud and rowdy and clearly taking advantage of the food offer. We felt bad for the staff trying to cater to such a large group, clearly not all from one household and blatantly flouting lockdown rules. This group impacted our experience in terms of time waited for food and also feeling awkward/bad for the staff who were being taken advantage of. That said, without the group would have been a perfect evening. Will visit again for sure.More

We have tried several takeaway dishes from the Lime tree now & have to say each one has been delicious and unique. Great presentation and we have really enjoyed every curry we have tried so far. We are based in Salford & have been looking...for a good Indian takeaway for a while now so we are glad we stumbled upon this place! Highly recommended....thank you.More

Myself and my friend and our children came to the lime tree for our dinner, the food was wonderful as was the service. Unfortunately ended in a dispute over the bill where we was spoken to really quite badly although this was cleared up with...an apology from owner which we accepted! wouldn't stop us coming again the food was actually brilliant as was the service ! Maybe a little customer service training would be helpful for possible future problemsMore

We ordered from the Lime Tree restaurant during the lockdown restriction period. The staff were really friendly and helpful when I was ordering and the food came very promptly and was hot and delicious. All in all, a fantastic experience

We ordered our meal which came much earlier than the time we required and ordered it for. The rice tasted as though it had been reheated. The vegetables seemed to be mostly diced supermarket veg rather than fresh. This meant that it was all a...bit of a mush. There was little flavour just some heat. As a result we had to throw it away. We both had stomach issues for the following day or two. The experience from Lime Tree was truly dreadful. We had eaten there several times previously up to a few years ago when we also had a bad experience. Friends told us they had improved sadly this is far from correct.More
