Always love the takeaways from here. Favourite dish is the mushroom saag Balti. This used to be part of a combo meal and I would always ask to have double of this instead of the masala that came with it which I was always allowed....More

Thought we’d take a few business friends out for dinner and check out this restaurant for future booking for a large number of people. Lovely place and decor, however the service is very poor and very slow. Had better meals elsewhere too at other nearby...More

Very attentive staff. On first impressions the establishment seemed posh but we were then seated in what seemed to be the extension & it was a little shabby. Coke was flat & glass had a chip in. But this was all forgotten when the food...More

We love coming here. Staff are welcoming and the food is of an excellent standard. We come here regularly and would definitely recommend it. Mohamed, just one of the members of the restaurant staff, went out of his way to make our visit superb!

Whether eating in or taking away this place always delivers excellence! Food is brilliant and super tasty, prices are very fair and the staff are always so friendly and polite. Certainly got me as a regular now! Can't recommend enough.

Lovely relaxed evening spent at The Blue Elephant. First time but will definitely be going back! Food was fresh, light and very tasty. Very helpful on allergies, etc. Nothing too much trouble. Thoroughly recommend a visit, but only if you save room for me 😁

I have probably visited the Blue Elephant around five times over the past 2 years and the common theme each and every time is huge waiting times. I visited the BE this week in a group of 11 for the Tuesday 4 course special at...More

Called to book a table and was told it was fine, although when I put the phone down I realised that they hadn't taken my name. Arrived at 6:25pm and we were seated shortly after. We ordered drinks which didn't arrive so we ordered again...More
