Step one: phone your order. Step two: Collect and pay for your scummy grub from the friendly staff. Step three: Kiss and hold her tightly...... Er.... No go home and stuff your face. Simple!. Prawn Samber: Very cheeky. Chilli, keema and garlic naan: Flavoursome. Jolly good. A.

We had intended visiting another restaurant when we came across Step in India, I wish we had carried on. The waiter was friendly enough but the decor was non-existant, and despite its expensive cost,the foodleft a lot to be desired. I ordered the biryani, but have never had one presented with lettuce before, as well as being topped with a... More

Nice clean restaurant. Greeted well with a very professional and friendly gentleman. My friend and I had the meal for two which was lovely. Could not fault any of it. The spices came through and tasted wonderful. Poppodoms/chutney, starters, 2 mains and 2 rice with a side dish and Naan bread plus a bottle of wine for less than £50.... More

Visited the restaurant on a Saturday night without booking. This wasn't a problem and s table was immediately found for us. The food was all very good quality, and the staff were friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend a visit here if you're looking for s tasty meal at a good price

The decor in this place is very dated and needs an overhaul. Even the cutlery and crockery could do with replacing! All that said if you are looking to sample exquisite Indian cuisine then this is the place to come. I had a chicken bhuna with vegetable rice and I have to say that it is perhaps best Indian meal...

Ok although some reviews are bad this place was ok. Rather dated inside and could do with a makeover. Food was of good quality and the portions very large. Although the staff did look after you they seemed more interested in there mobile phones

The food here is a disappointment. The staff are rude and uncourteous. I have spent a lot of money with this restaurant and finally had enough of being delivered COLD FOOD. I originally called at 17.30 HRS and had the second (supposedly non-cold) meal delivered just after 19.48 HRS (12.01.2017). I am frustrated. This place is Rubbish. They don't deserve... More

Since writing my previous review on this Indian restaurant we have experienced very bad chicken in a take away meal. Some pieces of chicken were so hard I couldn't cut it & others were a strange spongy texture!!! Wouldn't want to try anything here again as not confident about the quality or type of meat they are using.
