The food is a bit different to other Indian restaurants, a bit more experimental. It is great, all of us enjoyed our meals. What let the evening down a bit was the rather slow service, the restaurant was not full but we waited a long time between courses. I will try again soon and see what happens.

Lovely food probably 4/5 unfortunately appalling service let it down. More interested in the take away than the sit down. I would struggle to give a 1/5. Will not be going back

Love the neem tree, great traditional Indian food, plus a few off the normal menu options. Good service, reasonably priced, I'd recommend to all.

This was the best indian food I have ever eaten. However, the place is a bit shabby and they will never wear their vaccuum cleaner out. The service was not great and we ended up leaving without having the coffee we ordered as we waited so long for it. Such a shame they really need to get their act together... More

My fiancé and I love the Neem Tree because the food is delicious, the waiters are friendly and I love the decor. You HAVE to call up and book I would do it a few days in advance because it gets so busy! This creates a great atmosphere and even though it gets busy it doesn't compromise the food or... More

The food really is a world apart from a standard curry. It's good all round - taste, quality of ingredients, minimal aftereffects etc - but boy do they struggle to get orders right for delivery - at least half the time they're either missing something, or there's something you didn't order, or they're much later than originally stated (today close...

The restaurant is clean, staff is nice and within easy reach of train station. As an Indian the food is not exactly indian, it is Bangladeshi type food. But nothing wrong as such. If you are looking for a curry etc and in a hurry will recommend this restaurant.

This is like a London standard food. I must say the food is great. I have only had this type of good Indian food in London. Lamb chops amazing. Kola puri chicken is sooooo good. Must try !!
