Had an awful experience having dinner. We ordered 2 plates Samosa as entree and the waiter gave us 2 piece of Samosa claiming that's all for tonight. We have just waited nearly an hour for our mains to come which would take maximum of 15 minutes to prepare. The real terrible thing happened when we payed for our meals, we... More

We eat at India Today on a regular basis because of the consistently good food. They've added some new items recently - the 'surprise me' was outstanding and the Chefs Special is always good.

This restaurant is good for families as well as couples. Some seating outside as well as inside. Good choice on menu. Staff polite and welcoming, clean and tidy. I'd recommend India Today to everyone.

We got a delivery/takeaway from this restaurant because we thought the reviews seemed really good. Unfortunately this was NOT our experience. The delivery was 45 minutes late (early evening on a Sunday) and the rice, chicken tikka, bhaji, samosa and naan were cold. The papadums were missing along with the mango chutney. Whilst the Rogan Josh was hot enough to... More
