Have eaten here lots of times over the years - never somewhere you would specially go to, mostly last minute Decisions whilst out in town. This time however, will be my last. The rudeness of a couple of senior staff members throughout the whole process was unbelievable! Our complaint was taken personally & defended vigorously, they were obnoxious & we... More

Was really looking forwards to the Dhaka after seeing all the 5* reviews, but left a bit underwhelmed. Had lamb shaslick for main course which was very average - not a great deal of meat and not the tastiest I've had. There are better in Ipswich.

Me and my boyfriend go here often and I'm never disappointed, lovely good and lovely staff , only thing I would change is there house rose as I prefer a sweeter one and you can only buy it by the bottle, but that wouldn't stop me from going as I love the place and the staff remember us each time...

A fantastic little find that was very welcome after a cold evening walk post-footy. Well worth the longer walk to find an establishment that was truly welcoming and accommodating to all. The staff were excellent, particularly as we noticed some difficult customers who had some 'unique' demands. We are vegans and enjoyed a full range of choices. The onion bhajis... More

This is a lovely place to eat the staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble so if you want the heat turned up or down they will do it, menu has everything and the bill will not make you cringe, wine and beers about what you would expect.

Just realised I never reviewed this place despite having been here a few times. We've eaten here after 22.30 a few times and always had excellent service and food. The king prawn jalfrezi was the best I ever had . If you want a late night meal in Ipswich town centre please go here! It's fantastic x
