    A very good meal as always, good service, a bonus of a good pint from the coopers next door.

    Lovely saag paneer starter and a main course of prawn biryani, all at a very good price!

    We had a great night at Apne for a birthday. A large group of adults and children. Seated and served us brilliantly all night. All our orders were correct, delicious and brought out together and the staff were very friendly and professional.
    Thanks for the lovely meal, would recommend!

    Beautiful food and great service as usual.

    Great staff very welcoming
    Very very busy restaurant

    Food and service was amazing.

    Fast & friendly service as always. Food. Overall very good. Just one dish that we had very little chicken in. But we will be back.

    Friendly staff good service and food, will definitely go again.

    Friendly welcome. Attentive staff. Very quick service and the food was tasty, plentiful and well presented. No alcohol license but suits me because the pub next door has a wide selection of beers which you can take into the restaurant. Reasonable price for the meal and didn’t feel rushed. Overall- good experience.

    Staff and food outstanding.

    Absolutely fantastic service from entrance to leaving. Very busy. The food is amazing and large portions. The staff are very attentive, even the owner came to talk to us. Will definitely recommend and can't wait to rebook!

    Fantastic service and great food ?? Mr Husain made us feel very welcome as always.

    The food was good (a little hotter than I was expecting, but that's my own fault!) and very good value. Will go again.

    Absolutely love this place. Great value for money without skimping on quality. I visit regularly with friends, never had any complaints.

    Excellent meal. Very good service and value for money.

    All good

    The food here is amazing and the service is great too. The lamb shank just falls off the bone (Which they happily wrapped up for me to take home for my dog) bring your own drinks which is perfect as the Coppers tavern is just next door with a great selection of ales.

    Lovely welcome, great atmosphere and fresh beautiful food what more could you ask for :)

    Well looked after. Guided on the choice on the menu. Given suitable suggestions. Starters. Mains. Pudding all excellent. Had 2 elderly diners having their first Indian restaurant experience. Both cannot wait to go back to APNE. Made extra special by the friendliness of the staff.

    Superb meal at very reasonable price. A definite cut above the average Indian restraint!

    An excellent meal wonderful food too. A real out of the way find.

    Very friendly. Good service and food. Great value for money. Highly recommended.

    Could do with lights being a bit dimmer.
    Outside door kept being left open so was draughty at times.
    Deffo go again good food at the right price.

    Overall the meals we had were very good. Onion bahjis were superb. One meal should have had king prawns in but appeared to have had none in. Staff very friendly and efficient. Ambience spoiled by noisy children in restaurant. Would certainly go back again.

    Apne India is a great place to eat and is very, very good value. The food is always excellent as is the service. You can take your own alcoholic drinks or pop next door to the real ale pub and buy your pints to take in. They do have a selection of soft drinks available in the restaurant. Unusually for a smallish Indian restaurant, they also have quite a good dessert menu of mostly frozen desserts, however all very nice especially after a hot curry!
    Apne has a great reputation so booking is always advisable this is even easier now with go dine. They do have two sittings at busy times one starting 7pm and the next at 9pm. Apne also do a take away service.
    Not much to look at from the outside if I am honest, but once inside it is all good. They do have a small car park or you can park outside on both sides of the road for free.
    Give it a try!

    Excellent meal and service. Really enjoyed it!

    Excellent meal as always!

    We had a wonderful meal, all four of us enjoyed out food. The service was fast but not too fast that you couldn't enjoy your meal, very friendly., and extremely good value for money. We will definitely be coming again.

    A very good meal. Excellent value. You are moved on quite quickly but we appreciate it was Saturday night and they were very busy. Would love it not to be so brightly lit.

    Good service great value meal. All in all would recommend venue.

    We have been here before and have never been disappointed. There were 8 of us on this visit and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Food was of a very high quality but very reasonably priced and the waiters were attentive but not obtrusive and we were left to enjoy our evening and never felt rushed. We will be going back to Apne India soon!

    Great food and excellent value!

    Excellent food, excellent service... Looking forward to the next visit. Thank you very much.

    Fab food yet again at Apne. My husband had chicken bhoojelo murji it was one of the best currys he has tasted. Just one thing I would like is the lighting to be toned down its so bright in there.

    I have been to Apne several times and always have good food. Good unobtrusive service too. We are never disappointed and it is also very good valur for money.

    Excellent food and service at Apne! Great value, the best Indian Restaurant in the area. However I think the lighting could be more subtle to create a more relaxing atmosphere.

    Excellent meal and fast service at Apne India Cuisine, the staff are very friendly and helpful, will definitely going back!

    The food at Apne India Cuisine was excellent and at a very respectable price. We enjoyed ourselves and the service was good. We appreciated the fact we could bring our own alcoholic beverages from the neighboring pub. Would highly recommend.

    A quiet night but all the better for us, we received the best service at Apne. Our food was delicious and served promptly. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was spotless. All in all a good night (even though we were the only guests).

    Great value for money at the Apne India Cuisine Restaurant, it was a nice place to go on a first date and the waiters couldn't do more for us! We were not rushed plus I couldn't believe how cheap it was for the amount of food you got! So all in all I would give it 10 out of 10 and will definitely be going back soon!

    Another lovely meal at Apne. Great food! Thank you.

    Apne is really well located just 2 minutes from the train station its amazing for tired travellers as well as anyone else. Staff are really attentive and are on hand all the time. So many choices on the menu it was hard to just pick one! Will be going back to try something new soon.

    Good food, nice staff and good value for money. The chicken tikka masala was one of the tastiest I've ever had! My only complaint is that the restaurant was a little too bright for the evening.
