The place shares its (large) car parking with Burger King, so whilst that's not an advantage, it doesn't detract in any way as the restaurant building itself is pretty impressive and its interior is just as good. It's got a large friendly bar area to meet up before dinner with the place buzzing healthily and whilst not overly loud, it's not quiet and intimate so not really ideal for a quiet romantic candlelit meal. Grabbing seats in the bar might be a challenge but if it is, you won't be waiting long.

Both the food and service was faultless with attentive (and clearly well trained) staff getting their customer rapport spot on. We had a slight mishap where another table's meals were delivered to ours but the staff's recovery was notably and exceptionally professional: elsewhere it's a quick 'sorry' if you're lucky.

There's a main restaurant area and a sort of partitioned area at one end. My tip: go for the partitioned area as it's a bit quieter. We went on a Saturday night and there were lots of 'Happy Birthdays' going on in the main area which is never an issue.

All in all, a great evening out with all our table commenting on excellent food and whilst it's 45 minutes over the M62 and down the M1 for us, we'll be going again soon. Hope this is helpful

We booked a table for four of us plus a little one, the table was ready on our arrival. The atmosphere and overall appearance was first class, everything was spotlessly clean. Service was again wonderful. The only fault was that the tables are too close to each other, a couple of us ordered the buffet meal which meant a bit of a fight to get to the buffet table. Other than that it was 100% and we will certainly be going back! The food was outstanding.

Visited the Kashmiri Aroma on a Saturday night. My friend likes to eat early so we booked a table for 6:30. It was already busy. There was a good buzz about the place. Nice decor, good sized tables - not small so if you order a few dishes you are short of room, staff attentive and chatty.

Good varied menu. Food was really good - all four of us enjoyed our meal. I requested an item listed on menu as medium to be made mild and it was perfect.

Service was quick and efficient. Glad we ate early because by the time we left it was heaving and I overheard people grumbling about waiting a long time even though they had booked their table. Knowing we were going to be drinking lots of delicious Cobra we went by taxi so avoided parking problems which I'd read previously on Trip Advisor. I was OK but two in our party of four found it became a little noisy as the night progressed. Noise no problem for me.

Will definitely visit again and will probably book an early table.

We ate here in the week between Xmas and new year in 2012. The food was good, hot and tasty and they were good portions. My starter of Kashmiri kebabs was a particular delight and the biryani I had to follow was also good. Some of my fellow diners who ordered mild dishes said they were too hot to be classed as mild. The restaurant was very busy but it's a big place and should be staffed to cope especially at that time of year. So I was surprised when all courses took an age to be delivered to the table. After 45 minutes waiting for the main, we had to summon staff and ask them where our food was. We then waited a further 15 minutes. So my first impression was good food, but poor service. On the basis of the good food conclusion, a couple of weeks later, I ordered some take away which was ready and nicely packed when I went to collect it. But it was very expensive (a good 7-8 quid more than our usual takeaway for the same dishes) and frankly the food wasn't a patch on our first visit to the restaurant. Staff are very friendly though and we'll certainly go again as it's local to us, but it's not our first choice. Try it yourself as we all have different tastes and expectations when dining out.
