I sent back my Coke halfway through dinner as it was flat, and they refused to take it off the bill until I... More

We've had a few takeaways from here but never eaten in before, I was very impressed. The food was better than expected probably because it was fresh. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food.

Another great meal at Theale Tandoori. The staff always go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Wonderful meal deal on Wednesday & you can always swap heat or main ingredient to suit your taste. If you like chilli or spicy just ask. The rose & cheeky Guinness is a special touch at the end.

Worth a visit and food was tasty, warmth of welcome was exemplary and people could be bothered, cooked specially for one and gave a thoroughly good account of themselves. A good place to eat and enjoy a relaxed environment.
