Experts have had largely positive reviews on Tripadvisor, with one person even describing him as “the best Indian in Cheltenham” and claiming that they have been receiving it for years and are always “top notch”.

However, the restaurant, which claimed to be one of the few curry houses still using traditional Indian and Bangladeshi cooking methods, did not impress everyone.

One reviewer claimed on Tripadvisor that it was “seriously downgraded” and that they would never use it again.
