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.

A quiet Saturday night and based on the accents every table was from the UK where we enjoy our Saturday night out at a local Indian restaurant. However we are getting a little spoilt back home as Indian cooking has moved away from offering a...big menu made up of pre-made sauces into which pre cooked meat is warmed through. To be fair our shared platter of starters was good but I went for their much praised 'Butter Chicken ' and got a thin sauce that could have been tinned tomato soup in disguise sweetened with what tasted like maple syrup. It's not as if they are short staffed, I looked through the kitchen window and counted 4 working behind the scenes. Suggest they take some time out and have a look at many of the excellent recipes for Butter Chicken that can be found online and perhaps go for a 'Less is more' approach to the menu and concentrate on doing fewer dishes but better dishesMore

Beautiful food and service as always. Fresh and timely. The chicken tikka masala was absolutely delicious. We dined as an extended family of 7 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dish.
