  What can I say? This place never fails to impress me. Amazing Food, Owner, Manager, Staff, DJ. Great Night Out for the family/friends. The chilli paneer has to be best that ive ever tasted. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone and if your going...take me with you!. Hope this review helps...10 stars from me!

  Absolutely awful - I am not one for writing comments but just had to register my disgust at this place. The food was slow in arriving (only 3 waiters on yet resturaunt was full), food was cold and uninteresting, portions were small. never ever in a million years would I go back.

29/11/2009 Review from visitor navpreet Overall rating 0/10
  This place is not worth going to at all. Our food was delayed by almost 2 hours they mixed in the meals with the starters and main meals. My starter came while everyone was having there main! I spoke to the manager and said I wouldnt come here again and he said thats my choice. Manager does not care whether u come again or not. So please dont come here the waiters are slow, the service is crap and they seriously dont know anything about customer service. PLEASE do not go here again. I wish this restaurant gets shut down. Pakwaan opp is the best place to be! Even so is Chandni Chowk! Passage to India is crap!

  Passage to india - The food was ok! But when i booked a table for my family they said it was ok but when we all got ready to go they said that they gave our table to another family. We were very angry and went to mirch masala which was quite tasty. Better then passage to india and the staff were more plesant aswell. However Passage to india is terrible!

  My mum booked a table for 4 at Passage To India for my 21st. It was busy and the loud music made me have to repeat myself to the waiter when ordering and their English wasn't too good either, which didn't help. Food was nice, can't remember what I had, but I was pleased with it after the amount of time it took to get to our table. Mum loved the Paneer. Sisters and I had a little dance to the music, which was fun. The atmosphere is good if you're having a party, but not a romantic meal. A little pricey, £20/head plus. Deco is nice but seen better. Would go again with family or friends, but not for a quiet relaxed meal. Sorry PTI!

  We went to a friends daughters 18th birthday and the food was great, but service needed a bit more attention, atmosphere was good with the music and definately recommend it for a small get together...

  Passage To India, Ilford - Absolutely appalled with this place! Went here for a relatives 18th birthday party and it ruined the whole event, for everyone! service was disgusting and staff were unattentive and manager was rude. Were given a set menu at the cost of £20 a head (after bringing it down from £23) including children, which included starters, main course and dessert. Spent a total of 4 hours in the place and in the end only received starters and main course. When we complained, we were spoken to rudely and did not even receive an apology. Starters took an hour to arrive...and we did not receive our main course until almost 11pm, and dessert never did arrive! Would never even dream of going here again, and certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone! Ruined my entire night!

28/02/2008 Review from visitor desi guy Overall rating 1/10
  Hello , It was one the worst experience I had in London,uk.It was my friends birthday and we thought of going to some nice indian restaurant. Day was spoiled by this restaaurant manger as he was too rude to take boking and later when we arrived at the restaurant.The service was really bad and also the food was not cooked properly.Only thing that was availaible was loud untrue punjabi music.and later when we complained to the manager and cancelled our main course order.the manager made a really rude comment that "he dont want our kind of customers".I think we should boycott this kind of they are just insulting indian hospitality and indian food.

  Food is horrible at this place. Food orders are delayed like anything!! and even manager/staff gives rude answers...  
10/11/2007 Review from visitor Mel Overall rating 1/10
  Passage to India, food was average and was never on time, had to wait well over an hour for what we ordered, was placed at the table next to the extremely loud music with a club-type scene even though we had two little one year old kids, waiters were poor with poor service and did not even know the dishes we were ordering and could not even read their own menu, and this aggressive bloke looking for a fight started a fight with another guy in the restaurant punching him at least over 5 times and going into another families table smashing flying glass, and the waiters just stood there and did nothing, or even call police from the police station nearby. A dissappointing night, I would never go there again, and would tell my friends never to go there, I would avoid this place, it looks good from outside, laid out well from inside, but what is looks when it is poor quality and service inside, and attracts the wrong crowds looking for fights. What a mistake!

  Food''s fine (though not outstanding) and decor is ok but live music was so loud we couldn''t hold a conversation at the table!
