Now renamed Haldi, Aubergine is back to its best with the best Juicy Gosht ever. Tip - ask for it to be medium in advance and they cook to order. The usual one is too hot for me. The owner came out to welcome us from the kitchen and the waiter was just fantastic. We had a lovely birthday cake... More

We were impressed with the cleanliness and service, and of course the food. Certainly one of the better Indian restaurants in Albert Road and not too highly priced. Best to book if it's a weekend night.

We visited on a Monday evening and went for a starter and main course. Both were very tasty and more than enough in terms volume. However, the best thing about the whole meal was the bread: nice and thin and tasty. Would recommend this place everyday - among the best Indian restaurants in the area.

Couldn't eat it all so was packaged up for us to take away, meal was very good and being a Saturday night restuarant was busy with a good ambiance, would definately visit... More

A very average meal and looking around the restaurant all the meals looked the same colour chicken was not cooked in a clay oven just a bit limp. There is definitely better in Albert road and much much better not too far away. Unfortunately I don't think we would return menu is laminated and toilets not great either

My daughter and I thought we would give this restaurant a try before going to the Kings Theatre. We are so glad that we did. The decor, tables and service were beyond reproach. The food, starting with poppadoms and relishes, and followed by a chicken dish for me and a lamb dish for my daughter, were definitely the best 'Indian'... More

Popped in after a gig at Wedgewood Rooms, and found a real gem. Great service, and excellent food which was beautifully presented at reasonable cost.

a split in our house, my wife likes Aubergine. Looking for the best in town though and we are agreed it is not the best. Food is fresh and is above average. I can't really fault them, they make an effort to be better, it just doesn't float my boat on a food front.
