My wife and I, have frequented this curry house regularly when staying in Bolton for over 20 years and it has had its ups and downs over that period. Unfortunately we do feel that on our last 3/4 visits the staff seem to feel that they are doing us a favour and want you in and out as soon as... More

Excellent experience in pavilion, I have been visiting pav for at least 16 years and I am never disappointed!The bar man is always very helpful and entertaining and the service exceeds my expectations. The food is outstanding, I recommend the madras and the garlic naan. 👍🏼

Had our Christmas Doo in the Pavillion. The starters were lovely, the main course was fantastic. The staff at the Pavillion were first class. And the complimentary small shot of alcohol prior to receiving our bill was excellent. I will definitely recommend The Pavilion to friends.

Curry was tasty, chips needed a burial they were so poorly cooked. Naan was ok. Omelette was ok but processed peas on the side salad were not the best choice by the restaurant. Child's chicken nuggets also cremated. Staff friendly and attentive. Clean and nice restaurant area. Don't think I would return again.

This restaurant was recommended to us and it proved to be good for it. The chicken tikka vindaloo was excellent. There was a good selection of beers.
