“QUALITY PURE VEGETARIAN FOOD AT BARGAIN PRICES”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Firstly this restaurant is lovely cuz ur made to feel at home. The place is welcoming and nicely decorated and has great windows. The place just feels right.
The service was brilliant and the food was tasty and beautifully presented. We were a party of 6 and the food was served in a timely fashion. Having eaten lots in India I felt I was getting a taste of the real thing. The menu is well rounded and changes often (I was told every few months). I will defintely return. Great to see the chef out talking to people too! It's homely resturant where you can relax with all your family and you don't have to worry about the food and service as it's second to none!!! Gone try it yourself you know you wana i recommend this to all as they also cater for the whole family and they are famous for doing pure vegetarian INDIAN wedding catering as well you ask what you want and they will deliver to highest standard at a very reasonable prices as well!!

“Prepare to be WOW'd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2011

A bit off the beaten track tucked away behind a car wash. We were introduced to the Pooja by friends 3 years ago and we keep going back for more of the excellent food. Pure vegetarian Indian restaurants are very rare in the UK from my experience. The range of food is very wide and is all so new and exciting !
Delightful and amazing food. The restaurant/room itself isnt great, but the food is worth it.

“Consistently great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

My wife and I have been visiting The Pooja for many years and have never been disappointed. The food is the genuine item (the people who run it are Indian wedding caterers) and very different from the usual Bangladeshi "Indian" food you find elsewhere (you can see the menu online at their website). The decor is nothing special however the food is fantastic and the staff always friendly, plus the prices are low.

The front of shop has a counter where you can buy pukka Indian sweets/cakes and savoury snacks. I recently bought a selection for my Indian colleagues in where I work in Cambridge for Diwali (they were feeling homesick) and they were all very impressed with the food and were amazed that it was possible to buy authentic Indian food here!

“An Excellent Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Fortunately, the bad press surrounding their hygiene case doesn't seem to have affected the popularity of this rather good little restaurant. We ate there last weekend as part of a group of 13 and had a marvellous evening. It is true to say that the service isn't the best and the place itself not the most interesting but the food makes up for it. Go there in the right frame of mind, drink a few Cobras, and you'll have a fantastic evening. The food is stunning.
