We went here last Sunday to take advantage of their special Sunday offer, 2 courses for £11.95. I chose Garlic Mushrooms followed by Chicken Tikka, fab food. Even better that you can take your own alcohol :)

Be careful - 4 of the party of 6 that attended our meal experienced tummy cramps, nausea and diarrhea. The Food Hygiene rating is also a misrepresentation. It is currently rated 2 - requires improvement, yet on their website, they are displaying a rating of 4. On the whole, we had a good night, service was good and food seemed... More

Visited with my son Sat evening to eat in. Chicken balti and lamb pasanda very good and reasonable price. Bring your own beer and elderflower. Ive had numerous take-aways from here over the last few years and the quality has been consistent.

Generally good and clean Indian restaurant at Bath road, Cheltenham. Serves wide range of traditional Indian cuisine. We had a working out there tonight and this was enjoyable. Food is served at a good speed and tastes very good. I had the chicken shashlik. Staff are a little restrained in their attention but general friendly. This restaurant allows to bring... More

Am an occasional customer to this restaurant.. Can't fault the service and food as everything just tastes and looks better than any other local Indian. Popular 'bring your own booze' establishment on two floors but is sadly completely devoid of character ..magnolia minimalism. :-( so best visited with a group!

BW is a long established restaurant that's been going for over 20 years, survived a bad fire and has a loyal clientele in a town with some good curry houses. We only go about once a year, but on 18 June had one of worst ever anywhere after a 46 year journey round the curry houses of the UK, Goa,... More

Really good food, and service. Have also had takeaway, also very good. And you can take your own drinks.

Have just had a curry at your establishment with some close friends of mine, very disappointed overall with the meal and the experience and general overall service given. Observed points as follows; - distrusting and graphic sexual orientated graffiti above the men's urinals at eye level?! How can this be missed daily by the general management as you would check...

Fifth visit and still pleased to find this venue. Food is inexpensive but not bad on the whole and it has the added bonus of being 'bring your own' drink-wise....so one can have a slap up dinner and still only spend about £10-15 a head. Less if one was careful.... I had a tandoori mixed Grill (again!) which has been... More

As it was a busy Saturday night we'd booked a table but I noticed, though it seemed full, they were able to accommodate walk-ins after only a short wait. Food was nice (lamb dupiazza, lamb madras, naan, rice, mushrooms, poppdums & relish) and, because we'd taken our own beer and soft drinks, the bill came to only £33 - we'd... More
