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.

Tasty curries and naan served graciously in the heart of the downtown. Lunch was awesome and gave good cause to return for dinner on our next visit!

Possibly one of the best curry’s I’ve ever had. Such a different variety on the menu including a separate vegan menu. I had Mummyjis curry which was excellent. Thoroughly recommend

I can't say enough nice things about the staff at The Two Fat Indians. They went above and beyond to make our dinner super special. They were so kind and understanding. The service would have to be the best I have ever had in a...restaurant, from the serving staff, to the chefs and the front of house staff, they were all absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and just the right amount. The desserts were fresh and full of flavour. It was really cool to be able to try different teas as well. I love the decor and the seating was very comfortable. We will definitely be returning. Thank you so much.More

Booked their highly promoted VEGAN high tea but on arrival, soon realised that the floor staff had no idea what a vegan diet is. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, but specifically those with any allergies or dietary restrictions. The floor staff clearly didn't...want to be there, couldn't tell me the ingredients of anything and then gave me an Indian chai masala tea made with cow's milk - even though I requested soya milk twice and already had a discussion with them about the difference between vegetarian and vegan. No apology received or any kind of conversation had to try and better the situation. Probably the worst service ever received. False and misleading claims that they cater for all diets. Will never go back or recommend this restaurant to anyone.More

My wife and I went for lunch at around 12:30 on Saturday 3 May, left before sitting down with the rudest front of house person I have ever come accross in my life. Terrible and I honestly hope you lose your job. I was shocked.

We had walked past Two Fat Indians Langdon Road and tried Saturday 13th for first time sit down dining! Not something we would repeat, food was very good but service is not! It’s really very much takeaway based and would do that again just not...dine in.More

Arrived at 9.25pm, restaurant was to close at 9.30pm. The owner/ arrived at our table and took our orders, recommended some incredible dishes & was patient and warm. Food was great, owner built value in all courses with an explanation of the dishes heritage. Highly...recommended. (False advertising as he was not fat 🙃 haha)More

- We had booked but no table was reserved. - A very small and cramped venue - Automatic door constantly opening when people / waiter moved about the resturant - There was no sense of us being important / non-attentive - Price of food was...just OK, however the volume was poor - Would we go again = No.More

Great curry, nice staff. A small but clean restaurant with nice polite staff and really good curries. We went without booking and they fitted us in as a family of four. Worth a visit.

This is a really great restaurant. The background music helped create a wonderful atmosphere. The staff were just lovely and made ordering easy. Infact, there was only one staff member who was an absolute pro, and even though we were a party of 10 and...there were other people, the service was impeccable. We all ordered different dishes, and we loved them all, particularly the jackfruit briyani. Thank you for the lovely experience.More
