Tonights takeaway ended up being a disapointment. Had the offer they were promoting on their leaflet “dinner for two” ... ended up being a dinner for one as the meal was awful. Onion bhajis were super greasy to the point i had to squeeze the...More

We are disappointed that our food did not meet the expectations of this customer although we would point out that we receive many compliments on its quality both on Tripdvisor and take away apps such as Just Eat. We would always suggest that if a...More

There is a reason that this place is so highly regarded. The food was very nice indeed and arrived very quickly. The service was also fantastic, very polite staff all round. Would highly recommend and will be returning very soon!

To clear up the name, Garden of Gulab takes its name from Asia's largest rose garden, which is home to over 50,000 rose trees.We understand this reviewer's comments about atmosphere but traditionally Sunday night is very quiet (probably too many good things on the telly...More

We will have to have a word with our chef about portion control! Seriously though, we believe in offering excellent value for money and will always put any left-overs in containers so our guests can enjoy them later.
