Both my wife and I have been regular visitors at the Melford Valley for over ten years plus have been permanent residents of Long Melford for the past eight moving from Felsham and witnessed the restaurant grow in popularity with the local joke being we loved the cuisine so much we bought a property literally 100 yards away!!!

Been eating here on a regular basis (at least once or twice a week) for several years. Always attentive service and nothing is a problem, I often order dishes that aren't on the menu and it's always spot on. Staff are always friendly and whilst sometimes it can be very busy we are not left waiting. By far the best... More

Both the quality of the food and the service at The Melford Valley Indian Restaurant are very good. It is a bit expensive but worth paying a little extra.

Recently tried a takeaway meal from Melford Valley, had to wait 30 minutes more than originally quoted, when finally received we had duplicate items and parts missing. Was told I could go back to collect them but after spending half of my evening stood next to a kitchen I declined the offer. The food was ok, it a little bland.... More

My friend and I visited last night, so glad we did. Promptly seated, poppadoms straight away, drinks delivered quickly, order taken, 20 mins later food arrived. Fresh, hot (temperature), tasty, brilliant service and atmosphere. Perfect! I had a slimming world chicken jalfrezi, my friend had a lamb Bhuna. Both delicious, both as described, I had a tandoori roti, my friend... More

This is a regular favourite of mine. Fantastic food, freshly cooked (though this sometimes means a bit of a wait) but the food is worth waiting for. Nice atmosphere, attentive staff, fair prices and the food was piping hot.

We visit the Melford Valley restaurant on a regular basis. We have tried several other similar restaurants in Suffolk and Essex but keep coming back to the Melford Valley due to its outstanding food, great atmosphere and very friendly staff.

I am sorry to write this review. I have had takeaways before from here which were good. However, tonight, I phoned to order a takeaway and was told up to an hour to wait but it wouldn't be that long. After an hour, I rang to check what was happening. I was promised it was leaving immediately. After another fifteen... More
