Ate here with some good friends, they live near there and we where invited by them. We arrived on time and where told that our table was not ready. There where empty covers so we all found that strange however we where seated within a few minutes. While waiting I noticed a customer with a list of drinks ordering at... More

We had been to Abida a few times to eat in and found it ok so thought a takeaway would be the same. How wrong we were. We had to wait an hour for food, even though they told us it would be ready in 30 mins and when we opened it not only was food cold but absolutely dreadful... More

Decided to get a takeaway from here, based on all the positive reviews. I wasn't disappointed, very tasty food, decent portions, and friendly, smiling staff. Good value for money, I would recommend without hesitation.

Visited with friends who recommended. A chatty, friendly waiter helpfully made recommendations for us. I had a wonderful fish curry. Different tastes with every mouthful from fragrant to hot. Will be back!

My friends had visited before and couldn't recommend enough, was quite quiet for a Saturday night. Everything was very good - the service with a smile and a joke, the food is superb and it has a nice friendly atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and will be back. I'm sure it won't be long before we try the takeaway

An extensive menu of asian food well cooked and served by very helpful and friendly staff. Their takeaways are are just as good. Can recommend the Chai Tea.

Friends had recommended this restaurant as they had been a couple of times before. When we visited the restaurant was very quiet for a Saturday evening but this was probably due to post Christmas blues! Unusual décor but nice. Menu is extensive and difficult to choose a dish but once we had decided the service was efficient and friendly and... More

Very disappointed. We have been here a few times and enjoyed our meal, but unfortunately the takeaways let the place down. Each time we have ordered, it has been a hit or a miss. Our recent order was Green Herb Chicken and Garlic Chicken and the vegetables were raw and the sauce was tasteless. Surely the takeaway food should be... More
