I'm a bit of a foodie and have high expectations when dining out - whether it be food or the service from the staff. I was not disappointed and in fact, having our meal here tonight, made me sign up to Tripadvisor to rate this establishment especially! The food was delicious and served at adequate times; we didn't have to... More

What more can I say, this was our third visit and equally as good as the first. We were well looked after by all the staff, H arranged a special vegetarian meal for me that was not on the menu and it was delicious - we will definitely visit again when in the area. Five stars all round.

I was met by a very polite young man and given a seat while waiting for my takeaway I was even treated to a free glass of wine while I waited. They were very... More

We have previously had a poor experience at the Passage of India but decided to give it a second chance. This was a mistake. We found our waiter surly and brusque - perhaps because we were on a Groupon? The accompaniments to the poppadums were of cheap quality compared with those in other Indian Restaurants. When our first course plates... More

Firstly - the food is delicious, well-presented and the staff are knowledgeable. I don't think there's really any argument from anyone about that. My husband and I have taken to PtI as our go-to takeaway restaurant in recent months and have not been disappointed. The only issue we've ever had was eating in the restaurant as part of a large...

We took our daughter for her first meal in an Indian restaurant. What a wonderful experience for her. The food was delicious, and the waiters were so friendly. We could park at the back of the restaurant which was very handy. A great family friendly place to eat, at a decent price.
