Avoid this place like the plague!! My parents had a delivery last week... chicken curry and a chicken biryani... the curry was full of water... clear water... my dad has to drain it all off... they also missed off the biryani sauce... they rang to...complain... after a rather heated discussion on the fone new food was sent out... the curry was the same!! All water! And the biryani sauce was horrendous... a very small portion of some disgusting sauce full of peppers.. not the correct sauce at all. They couldn’t eat it and just through it in the bin. The water was due to the curry being frozen and had been defrosted on order!!! Please avoid this place!!!More

Hadn’t had a Dhaka for a while (I don’t live nearby anymore and I’d heard some bad reviews). Went to collect one on New Year’s Eve. Was delicious! The chicken we all had in our Curries was like what you got from the Dhaka back...in the day. Loads of chicken, and ‘proper’ chicken aswell, no little hard squares of chicken like most places serve up. Could not fault it. I have 1 or 2 Curries a week and this was the best chicken madras I’d had in a long whileMore

I have been coming here now for a number of years, as i eat curry regularly. We have never had a bad meal from here. The food is just outstanding, the chicken is good, the flavour is good, the spice is right, the portion size...is brilliant, and the value for money is excellent! If you eat from here, I recommend the deals they do, for one, two or four people... :)More

Chicken Dopiaza INEDIBLE - It tasted utterly sour and was loaded with salt. I threw mine away after a forkful. Very disappointed, then angry. I had spent over £30 and decided I would go in and speak to them. I took the other 3 curries...in the next day (having been refrigerated overnight) and explained. No manager on site, member of staff "not understanding much English" so then another member of staff joined in and then another, until there were 5 of them all denying there was anything wrong with the food. Strangely, not one of them would try it! Chef was there too and he insisted he had been cooking dopiaza on Fri & Sat nights and it was okay. I told him I had probably been eating dopiaza a lot longer than he had been cooking it! They were not prepared to assist in any way, so I left telling them I would put my feelings down in a review. The cleanliness of kitchen & staff left a lot to be desired. I will NEVER eat anything from there againMore

Arrived 35 mind late , stone cold , items were incorrect .Burnt poppadoms , total waste of money as all uneatable. We have been customers at the Dhaka for over 15yrs, but will never order from them again , it's been very inconsistent for a...while but last night was the worst yet ! Hardly any chicken in the chicken Madras , total rip off. No apology for lateness from them , all went on the bin!More

Been eating food from the Dhaka since the mid 90’s.. the food these days is very hit and miss.. very inconsistent. When it’s good the food is amazing but when it’s bad you won’t wanna go back. One thing that has never changed is the...amount Of chicken you get in the chicken dishes. Huge amounts of ‘real’ chicken. Not like most other places when you get a few little square bits of chicken. I like the Dhaka. But it’s not the bestMore

We have ordered our Indian takeaways from Dhaka for many years, we usually have a good meal. Unfortunately this evening , for the first time, we are very disapppointed. Masala fish well OK but had very little salad and no mint sauce.. The 1/2 Tandoori...Chicken was burnt to a crisp. The Lamb Tikka Biryani had very little lamb. May have to try elsewhere next time we want a take away.😕More

Busy day so wanted a lazy dinner at home, Dhaka Balti posted a flyer menu thru the door a couple of weeks ago and the other reviews were good so decided to try it. Ordering easy thru Just Eat, chose Chicken Ceylon, Chicken Pathia, Fried...Rice, Keema Naan, onion salad and Raita. Feedback said approx 1hr delivery but turned up about 15min early delivered by a friendly smiling driver. The restaurant had added a couple of popadums and some salad, these were fresh and crispy and very much appreciated. Both curries were hot & fresh, nicely cooked and well flavoured, the fried rice was perfect and the naan fluffy and delicious. The helpings were to say the least generous and couldn't be eaten at one sitting. I can't find anything negative to say about this meal or the service and we will definitely become regulars. Way to go guys!More
