We ate lunch here during our visit to Alton Towers in July 2016. Normally when we've visited theme parks there's never any halal food options so seeing this restaurant in the park was great. The flavours were nice and the food was all fresh. We had a chicken and kebab roll which was made in front of us. The prices... More

We came to Alton Towers for a overnight stay and fancied something different to eat from fried chicken and burgers. My partner had a lamb curry which he said was really tasty and I had a chicken tikka wrap which has got to be one of the best I have ever had. The prices were reasonable and the food cooked... More

Very very small portions but it tasted nice. I was not aware it was halal till I got back to put in a review. I would not have eaten here had I known this and would prefer if it was advertised on the outside of the premises. (if it was I did not see it and I look).

It's the only halal restaurant with proper Indian veg options on the menu in Alton towers. Food was very good and staff was very much nice. Though seating area was not that clean, perhaps most of the staff was focus on handling customers at the counter. Overall good experience. I didn't tried the non-veg so can't say the taste of...

One of the cheapest places to eat at Alton Towers and it is good food for what you pay. There is a wide range of food available here and is great for a quick meal when you just want to get on the rides. Would recommend eating here, there's also indoor seating.

Had a lamb doner baguette with fried onions, was a nice quick option and reasonably cheap compared to other options on the park.

Great food at a very busy theme park... No idea why people are complaining about having to wait to sit as on a busy weekend if you don't get a seat then that's life as its not a seated restaurant... Ate here the two days we visited over scarefest and the kebabs were amazing. Had chicken tikka and mixed kebabs... More

Had my family with me but there was far too few tables and chairs at this restaurant, there were people having to stand over each other waiting for them to finish eating so they could get a table. To be fair the food did taste good and some things were reasonably priced but others were expensive such as a portion... More
