This is a regular if not often visit and on the last two occasions the service and good have been very acceptable. On this occasion I felt that there was definitely a communication problem. Despite ordering a platter of starters we were asked at least 3 more times by different waiters what we wanted. The food whilst acceptable was not... More

Four of us visited The Ivory Tusk last Saturday. THe food was average, but the service was way below average. Waiter had a real "take it or leave it" attitude. Table was tiny , even though there were lots of empty larger tables. Fazeley has a lot of competition for restaurants and I think that the Ivory Tusk needs to... More

Visiting with colleagues, this was a restaurant of choice based on a recommendation from the staff at the Drayton Court Hotel, and the fact that my colleagues and I like Indian food, oh, and the restaurant was a literal 2 minutes from the hotel! Our laziness was well rewarded. The place was busy but with a few tables left for... More

We came here yesterday night, and it did not fail to deliver. Food was the best Iv had for a while staff were very attentive and welcoming, we had a fab night here and would recommend bringing your own drinks as there nearly £5 a bottle when you can get 3 for £5 in tesco round the corner.

We always go for a curry here when stopping over on business and have never had a bad experience. The food is good good with a decent size menu. They have license but you can also take your own beer apparently. If you like a decent curry and you're in the area give it a try.

Visited here for the first time to grab a takeaway. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food... It really was very good. Prices are also excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. I've never eaten in the restaurant but I'm sure it's just as good. Give it a go!

Saturday night and restaurant was busy and buzzy as you'd expect and happily managed to get a table without a reservation. Service was great, food nice, probably too many choices on the menu and decent value. Would I go again? Yes. Would it be my first choice Indian? Probably not.

Previously enjoyed meals at this restaurant, though not been for 12 months. Booked table in window to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We called in at Tesco to buy a celebratory bottle of wine only to find one of the waiters in there buying profiteroles at a mark down price! i.e. Going out of date! Proceeded to restaurant given table at... More

Had dinner here last Saturday. A recommendation from a friend who lives in the area. Welcoming staff and a huge and varied menu of both standard tandoori and curry dishes, with more unusual house specialities developed by the chef. The food was delicious, I really enjoyed my sizzling lamb kebab with onions and peppers, served with a nice salad. Side... More

We have been here many times and the food is good. Service is good, would recommend having a takeaway over eating in, as the food can take a long time to come.
