“Excellent Food & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Excellent food and service at this restaurant. We popped in quite late on a Saturday night when the restaurant was busy and we were made very welcome and received excellent fast service and the standard of food was first class.
I would thoroughly recommend the Star of Wales for any occasion.

“Our favourite local restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

You can't ask for more at the Star of Wales, friendly service and great atmosphere. The food is delicious, plentiful and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is homely and just as a traditional indian restaurant should be. We love this place and go on a regular basis. But you don't have to be a regular to be looked after very well by the staff, they take care of everyone and make you feel that you want to go back time and time again!

“Bustling atmosphere - great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

If you are the type of diner who likes chic decor, prettily arranged food, served by near-by invisible waiters who remember to be obseqious to the customer, in an atmosphere of chic elegance - you won't appreciate the Star! On the other hand, if you like us you hanker for the days when going out for an Indian meal meant bright rustic colours and paintings with a bit of bling thrown in for good measure, food that comes with all the colours & scents you associate with this cuisine which tastes how it is supposed to, bustling waiters moving swiftly around the restaurant who enjoy good-natured banter then give this energetic "traditional" style venue a go.Yes the pilau rice was not hot when it arrived, but we were asked how everything was and the problem was rectified swiftly enough. The maitre de (sorry dont know what the equivalent in an Indian restaurant is called!) was friendly and interested in our party and I was particularly impressed that I hadnt been there for about two years and he remembered me! We will go back again as soon as we have an opportunity.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Couldn't find a sitter last night and as we didn't fancy a standard takeaway we ordered a couple of dishes from here to bring home. We were not disappointed. Everything was cooked absolutely beautifully. Couldn't fault it. Ample portions, perfectly cooked meats, wonderfully complimentary flavours and lovely staff. Even got free drinks and chocolates whilst waiting. Definately be visiting again :)
