Went here early evening to meet my curry buddy mate which is one of his locals. Our standards are pretty high when it comes to our favorite grub and this visit was not up expectations. Being the first ones there you would think you might get your drinks fairly quickly....took them 10 minutes to get a gin and tonic to the table.

Food was again, average. My dansak had no depth of flavour to it, lacked any lentils and tasted like a rushed bog standard lamb curry made from batch cooked base (all to familiar these days).

Service was equally lacking. We had to ask twice for our breads and the second request was greeted with an indignant grunt from the waiter. We both like our lager cold, usually much colder than the average you get from restaurant fridges. So we usually ask to have them put in the freezer for a few minutes, usually never a problem for other places we go to. But not at this establishment, after the request was made a bottle was brought to the table and informed that they were "cold enough". Obviously the service mantra at this restaurant reads "the customer is always wrong"

There are much better options in Shepperton so I do not recommend this place. Best in the wider area is Indian Zest in Sunbury.

Great experience, food excellent, service responsive but not over bearing even on a busy weekend evening. Nice and busy, good atmosphere but not chaotic. Looked after very well with a 6 year old. Food all very good, tandoori chicken nice and spicy no red dye here! Prices reasonable.

We eat curry once a week and my husband belongs to a curry club. We both said this was the best curry ever! Delicious curry, presentation and service,

My wife and I had another fantastic meal here on Friday it really is the best Indian restaurant in the area Shepperton, Walton, Molsey, and Esher. We use the Ivory Tusk for all our takeaways even though we live in Walton-on-Thames it is worth the drive over to collect them as the takeaway is of a very good standard. When we eat in you can't fault anything and we always have a lovely time the owner and all the staff really look after you feeling hungry as I write this review.
