  • One of the most disappointing Indian and takeaway meals I've ever had.
    There was an hour wait for us to collect the meal. On arriving at the shop it was clear they didn't have enough service staff and I was ignored. Eventually they went to check that on my order, but didn't return to inform me on the status. 10 minutes after the collection time I was informed that my meal had been taken by a delivery driver by accident and would be returned, which they did 10 minutes later. So food was collected about 25 minutes after the collection time, and now cold. On getting home we realise that one of the dishes is incorrect, a chicken tikka rather than a butter chicken. The other dish, a vindaloo, used artificial colouring and had no flavour, just chilli powder. The naan was burnt, and hard. You'll find better food at a supermarket frozen. A complete waste of time.

  • The basic principle of a restaurant is to provide edible food. On top of that, you might wish for it to be tasty, good value, and warm. This restaurant failed on every regard.

    Ordered meal at 7:51pm. First delivery is at 9:10 pm (order was only for curry, rice and naan). Delivery was cold, and missing the rice. For reference, the resteraunt is only 8 minutes drive away (1.5 miles). Upon calling to inform of missing meal, was told they had sent their driver immediately. 40 minutes later, I call to ask for a refund and to cancel the meal (happy to return it) as it was now stone cold, and still missing part of the meal.

    Bizarrely they questioned why I would want to do this, and that I would have to speak to the manager who would call me back. Still waiting for the call. Driver eventually turned up with (cold) rice, and entire meal was thrown out.

    Would not order again from The Colonial, both due to quality (cold food is never acceptable unless you order a salad), service (I ended up speaking to the Colonial 3 times, each time pointlessly) and delivery (in all it took 2 hours to successfully delivery a basic meal) and value ($22.00 for a Korma - on throwing it out, I even noticed bits of smashed bone in it - is ridiculous for a basic curry)

    I rarely write poor reviews, but this was both ridiculous and atrocious in pretty much every regard. I unfortunately had to give it a star, but it really doesn't deserve that.

  • 1st order and ready really quickly. Chicken vindaloo was exceptionally hot and spicy...order at your own peril! Made with green chillies as opposed to red chillies which explains the level of substantial heat! I thought it over the top (I am of Indian descent so appreciate hot & spicy usually).

    Tandoori chicken serve was generous however chicken was overcooked. I do understand that chicken is hard to get just right...

  • I did make a note i want it hot and it wasn't even Medium hot. they will need to think again and when some one ask for hot food.
    I would try again next time see if they can make the food hot.

  • Taste of the food was great, however it was't at all spicy which i was suprized about as ordered 'medium spicy' and last time I ordered from here it was very spicy. Food was also a bit cold so it be good if they had a way to transport it so it arrived hot still.

  • Tandoori lamb cutlets were tough & do not have anything "tandoori" about them!! they may have possibly had some salt and pepper seasoning them but that is absolutely all, it is the 3rd time ordered from this restaurant (we gave them the benefit of doubt the last time and hoped it would improve), sadly not!!!
    Also late delivery... Literally we live less than a 10 minute drive from the restaurant and still they give you a 60 minute delivery time that ended up being on all 3 occasions at least 1 1/2 hrs... Seriously just order elsewhere for indian food..... There are so many places, we used to have a great one but they don't deliver to our area any more :( ....,
    Overall poor food!!!
    Bad delivery times
    Poor customer service ( when we called to find out they straight out lied to us!)
    Tastes bad
    What more to say!!!
    Be kind to yourself and just get food elsewhere!!

  • Despite ordering one extra hot curry and one extra mild curry, both curries arrived with pretty much the exact same hotness level to the point that neither of us could tell them apart. Despite a 90 minute order window, it arrived probably a good 20 minutes after this time. The food was luke warm, aside from the naans which were straight out cold, and every dish had to be microwaved. However the food was tasty and although we've had much better elsewhere, was good value for money.This was also our first time ordering with Eat now, and it has not particularly enamoured us to stick with this service over other alternatives.

  • This is the very hot curry man. After many meals at Colonial I ordered a takeaway for the Railway Goat and Beef Vindaloo asking for moist and tender meat and Not tough and dry. I was very happy to receive my order within 30 minutes and that the food was great as
    per my request. We always want tender meat :) Ask with your order!
