I have been using this Restaurant for years now, and the food is consistently good. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help. They resolve any problems quickly and efficiently. I have tried a variety of the food on the...menu and I have enjoyed them all. I have never had a bad experience eating here. The deliveries are always within the hour, and still hot. I highly recommend Bashundora to everyone. You will not be disappointed.More

Early Saturday evening, my wife and I went for dinner. The food was all excellent, particularly the Madras, which was old fashioned Madras hot. The only things that let it down was the timing of the service, and my wife ordered extra sauce which didn't...arrive.More

Absolutely shocking experience at Bashundora this evening!!!! Where to begin??? We were asked for a drink order after it was explained how the groupon deal works. I asked if we could have more time to look at the menu before placing our order, however we...were asked again in a matter of minutes! Poppadoms arrived, we ordered 2! We were given 2.5 (not sure if the waiter ate the other half on the way to the table!) When we asked to leave the dips that we had for the poppadoms, waiter was reluctant to leave them and took one of the four pots and said he’ll top it up, however all of the other pots were pretty much empty! No offer to refill these to go with our starter. As the starter was brought to us,we were asked to present our groupon voucher. I had difficulty finding this and rather than being told to find it after the meal, the waiter stood with his arms folded glaring at me waiting for me to find it as my starter went cold! Shocking to say the least!!! When our main was brought out, it was huge so half way through our meal, my friend and I just sat chatting (with a view to eat some more at our own pace!) The waiter came over on a couple of occasions to ask if we were finished! After the third time he asked, we asked for our food to be boxed up as there was a substantial amount left. As we both had drinks left, we sat chatting whilst finishing our drinks. The waiter came over on a couple of occasions and brought a wet towel for cleaning hands then the bill (we hadn’t even asked for it yet and there were only two other people in the whole restaurant.)They were definitely keen for us to leave. When we did decide to leave, just as we were putting our coats on, the waiter went and held the door open (in other words ‘Get out!’) No thank yous! Nothing! Incredibly rude!!!! Safe to say neither my friend or I will be returning to this restaurant and we will ensure that we spread the word to friends and family about how awful it was. Wouldn’t have been so bad if the food was to any standard but it wasn’t!More

The outside puts you off from going any further. Once you pass the broken down car outside that is full of stuff used in the kitchen and is surrounded by a structure of bamboo canes used to grow vegetables! It gets no better. On a...warm evening, once we had passed the broken down car and rubbish bins we had to pass the chef who was sitting in a deckchair at the entrance, smoking and picking his feet. The inside was cold in appearance and by this time we had changed our minds and left. If the owners and chefs care nothing for the outside of the restaurant how much effort to they put into food hygiene. Many more good restaurants in Sutton to chose from.More

Used Bashundora for the first times in many years. Food was ok. Order included two tandoori mixed grills - main course dishes, costing £9.95 each. Whilst they also came with a naan bread, the portion size was pitiful, and really felt like the restaurant just...thought ‘that’ll do’ when they sent it out. I can’t remember why we had not used this place for so long, but I know why we won’t be going back any time soon. Order number B112715, today (27 June) in case you’re interested Bashundora staff.More

Unfortunately I was really disappointed after passing this restaurant regularly. Take away this evening as thought we would try a new Indian - big mistake !!! - it was greasy , late, incorrect , lacked flavour and very expensive for what it was. On ordering...the person advised they didn’t recognise the dish I had wanted as no one had ever ordered before - salmon - perhaps that should have been the warning sign and I wonder if this is why it was so late as they had to go and buy the fish !! Both main meals were swimming in grease - the pilau and Bombay aloo were the best two dishes !! The popadoms were stale and soft so all in all a really bad choice. The first and last time for me!More

Poor. Tried to order a takeaway but the Bashundora have refused to let us pay by card payment insisted on paying by cash! Seriously in Covid Pandemic!

A cautionary tale: How hard can it be to prepare a meal for 3 for collection? Last night I ordered poppadoms plus 3 mains and rice. 20 minutes later it was ready for collection, so far so good. The card machine was of course still...broken, it’s been that way for months but the poppadoms were good, it didn’t last! 2 of the 3 main courses were wrong. The Chicken Malaya (as it said on the lid) was in fact a chicken Korma. The Lamb Rohan Josh turned out to be a mixture of chicken and grizzly lamb! Discussions on the phone were prolonged and unsatisfactory as the ‘manager’ couldn’t believe they could have made such a mess of the order. Eventually I settled for a refund but by then our enjoyment was long gone.More

Recent visit was enjoyable. Lacking a bit of atmosphere but service was fairly good so no complaints there. Food was really good just a shame the drinks are so expensive.

Don’t normally do reviews but thought I would on bashundora! We found an amazing deal online using Wowcher! 2 courses (starter and main) and a drink for a certain price (can’t remember the exact pricing but was a excellent deal regardless) so we booked for...my birthday and omg what a hidden gem this is in Sutton! I didn’t even know it existed due to it being hidden in a court yard off the main road opposite the courts. There was only one other group in when we arrived on a Thursday night which is a utter shame as the Food was truly amazing. The service was excellent too! well done bashundora staff. I’ll definitely be back again. I only managed to take one picture of my starter (aloo) as I wasn’t going to write a review. I’ll be sure to tell my friends and family about this place also. Amazing food 5 starsMore

Last time I went I was so disappointed because they had stopped using the beautiful cups...and saucers as they had mostly got broken but low and behold the owner found me a set and said I could keep it for my next visit 😊 my friend and I wouldn't go anywhere elseMore

Good food and good COVID measures but , apparently, the card machine is “ not working again”. The waiter said a member of staff was on the phone to the card company now. They really should change their card company because every time I come...the card machine is broken.More
