Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Superb! I ordered a beef vindaloo. It was hot of course, but the richness and depth were the surprise. Naan was excellent. A mango lassi came with slivers of nuts and a hint of mild spice. I'll be back. Will become a regular I think.

My partner gifted me a 3 hour Indian Cooking Masterclass with Chef Sel and it was the best experience. The classes have up to 14 people and we're split into groups of 2 to prep+cook 7 dishes for a mini feast in the end. The...flavour combinations were amazing and Sel was full of immense knowledge to inspire us into cooking Indian dishes in our own homes. Our group of 13 was a fun mix and even more when you have friends+family do it with you. We love ordering and dining from here aswell. Food and drinks are always top notch. Thank you Sel!More

Wonderful dinner as always. Have had dinner twice in the last two weeks. Both times the food has been delicious and beautifully presented, great selection as well as daily specials. Everyone in our group has their own favourite but the Butter Chicken is on everyone's...list. We also enjoyed the desserts and the good selection of wines. The service was spot on and the staff very friendly and helpful. We will be back!More
