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.

After a fair few dine in and take away meals at this branch of Shiraz, tonight's experience was a tragic comedy of errors, and most disappointing. Upon arrival, we were met and seated by a lovely young man who throughout the evening really did his...best despite the system and kitchen failures. Take away and delivery meals seemed to take priority over dine in customers. With only one table of two seated when we arrived, our order for four people was taken, after about 20 minutes. Starters arrived a further 15 minutes, and then the wait for the mains. Well, surprise, surprise.. only three meals arrived.. the system had glitched and only sent three main meals through to the kitchen. The three meals arrived, and we waited, and waited. The waiter returned to the kitchen to check where it was, and returned to offer our fourth diner, to either have her meal cancelled or as a take away.. as it would take a further 10 minutes to prepare. She asked for them to please prepare the meal which she had been looking forward to as this was a new dish she was trying and it sounded delicious. One of us commented that she hoped the manager would at least credit this meal from the bill, for the inconvenience. The two butter chicken dishes (one ordered mild, the other medium) were mixed up. The Rogan Josh, ordered mild to medium was more spicy than anticipated, but very tasty. To add insult to injury, an unwanted little creature was crawling up the wall right above our heads, and when one of us jumped up in shock, asking for some type of spray or help to get rid of it, the second young man packed out laughing, thinking she was joking.. and immediately when he realised she was not, apologised and came to the rescue. OH MY! We left after being offered a 10% discount for the inconvenience as the manager was not on site and the staff could not remove the meal from the bill. Then when they could not work out how to process the discount, suddenly a lady from the kitchen came out and managed to remove that meal entirely. I feel sorry for the two young men, who seem to have had to spend their working night, apologising to customers (not only us, as we overheard) for the slow service which seemed to continue through the evening. We left the restaurant in fits of laughter, which we are sure could be heard all over Kamo, as we were bid good night with a "see you next time". Presumptuous!? Perhaps a visit to the town branch is on the cards next. Has the chef and / or kitchen staff changed recently?More

Popped down to our local Shiraz for a takeaway tonight, and it was tasty as ever. Pretty disappointed with the amount of chicken on our curries though, it’s was really poor. I’d even be happy to pay a bit more if it meant a decent...amount of meat in the curries, we’ve been noticing it get less and less over the last while.More

Great food, but lacks atmosphere, service can be a bit hit and miss. Very popular for takeaways but if you are dining in people are often walking past your table to get their takeaways.

We're regular takeaway diners. Tonight the chicken in the butter chicken and the chicken tikka was very dry. The sauce for the butter chicken also separated appearing as though it had a lot of water in it. We normally love your food but were disappointed...this evening. The garlic naan was very yummy though.More

We usually love having lunch here, BUT today things were just a bit off. My husbands beer arrived with a heavy head of froth on it, not looking too happy at me from the other side of the table LOL and our waiter was struggling...to understand us. Ok I know we are dining at an Indian restaurant !!!!!! It all took the gloss off our lunch out which was a small celebration lunch out for us. Butter chicken and narn bread very tasty tho.More

Why would you want to bring your own? They have plenty there and they are not expensive. You could ask them but they have rent and staff to pay. They are well priced.
