    Madhu's is a great restaurant. One of the best indian restaurants I have been to in many years. It's now become our regular. Great varity of food. Good selection of wine and the service is second to none! We like things a bit different from the norm! And Madhu's gave us just that!! Modern surroundings and a great atmosphere. Highly recommend to all for a unique taste of the Indian menu.

    I went with my family for a birthday dinner at Madhus and throughly enjoyed the food and service provided. The only downfall was the non veg dishes which one member of my family ordered and was not happy with it. Other than that, I would definately recommend Madhus to anyone. Highly sophisticated service and approach towards each customer. Excellent all round.

    Having returned to what was once one of my favourite Indian eateries, I was left very dissapointed. It was a family Birthday meal family including children. Now the first impression given by the staff was more the kind 'if you are going to be spending money in here we will serve you right else we wont bother' which is what we got. The fact that I had booked ahead and the table was not ready and no napkins provided was something that took me by surprise as service was what Madhus stood out for! Starters were great. Mains were mediocre and they messed up and still had the audcaity to charge for the incorrect dish when it was given as a complimentary as a result? Madhus was up there 10 years ago but now sadly we wont be returning!

    I thought I would try this restaurant as I'd seen a number of reviews. It was quite good, but not up to the standard I had expected i.e. not as good as Karahi King in Wembley, or Tayyabs in Whitechapel. On the plus side, I thought the portion sizes were generous. And the interior is quite smart. But I found the service rather pushy. And when we asked to take the leftovers home, they "forgot" to give us the lamb. Overall, I wouldn't go back as I know better places for this style of food.

    restaurant is bit on small side & can get very busy.unfortunatle for us there was a birthday party of 15 people & it was too much noise for me as they took over the restaurant cheering & taking photos without consideration to other diners.the food was great but bit pricy for the area.not much choice of beers except cobra or carling.averall I would give 3 star to this restaurant as I have eaten in best restaurants in Mumbai ,melting pot,haibo & paid less with fantastic ambience & service & taste.

    Was good, however on this visit it was dire. The chicken served was not fresh and had a reheated smell. Worst part of experience was the waiter. He was very pushy and kept adding dishes we did not ask for, and had to keep asking to have items taken off. Also, apart from pushing dishes, he was not interested in being friendly to a family whilst falling over himself over a group on company meal on next table. Finally the manager who was friendly did not apply open table advertised discount to bill until pointed out. They did not have our opentable booking on arrival until I had to point it out on list- attempt to not apply discount from the off I think. Only positive was that with discount this was reasonably priced in the end. Bad evening.

    The restaurant smelt like bleach and other cleaning products. We ordered the butter chicken and tandoori chicken as appetisers. Butter chicken tasted bland and salty. The mains were all full of oil and made us bloated after a few mouthfuls. Definitely not returning or recommending.

    The restaurant was very well kept with a ambient décor. Although there was long intervals between food served the service and food was a delight and thoroughly enjoyed by the entire party. Pricing was set at a more premium level in comparison to competitors within the local area, however the quality of food is very high.

    I have heard great things about Madhu and glad I finally made it. Good service. Tasty. Not the cheapest in Southall, but certainly a more sophisticated experience than most in the area. Worth the extra few pounds, especially as portion sizes are generous and we went on 20% off offer from Top Table.

    We have sampled many Indian restaurants, and we are very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel around north and south India to taste the various regional dishes. We highly recommend Madhu's. Although the menu is relatively short each dish is fantastic, tasty and varied. We have returned many times and always find something new to try. Would highly recommend meat eaters to try the vegtarian dishes. The bill is always small compared with the high quality. Try it yourself!

    I booked Madhu's for my dad''s 60th Birthday and it was brilliant. I have been before but I think it has some of the tastiest indian food around. We went with the 20% off offer and the royal set menu which was a little of everything for £16 per person after discount. We had huge portions and left feeling fully and satisfied. The service from Nitesh was excellent and he remembered us from having served us for my mum's birthday. He really treated us well that night and they even put a sparkler in my dad's dessert and wrote happy birthday which surprised him. Highly recommend it!

    Restaurant could not have done more to make it a great evening and, everything went well. The pre-vist phonecall, the welcome when we arrived, the taking of our order, the ambience, the speed of service, the attention to detail, the response to last minute requests made this a wonderful evening. The only reason I'd probably eat at another restaurant in Southall, is because Madhus is fully booked

    Madhu's provided me and my group of girls a fantastic set menu for my Birthday. There was soooo much food, we even took some home with us. Food was tasty and filling.....with varied spice levels to keep everyone happy. Service was good but one down point was we didnt get our tea/coffee at the end as they wanted to close up....felt a bit rushed out at the end so maybe book for an earlier time to make the most of it. I'll be back to Madhu's as its just good, wholesome Indian food at reasonable prices.

    If you are a lover of genuine Indian food then Madhu's is for you ! Never before in the UK have we tasted such authentic and wonderful food. Everything is fresh, tasty and will leave you doubting any other Indian food you eat in this country. If you want the next best thing to actually being in India then you must go here. The customer service is excellent and all the waiters are friendly and do their best to assist you throughout the meal.

    Madhu's has always been our favourite destination for Indian food. We eat meat but the vegetarian options are usually tasty and would recommend that you try. The food (and wine!) is outstanding value for money, and we always get treated well. We will keep on returning - tip try to go upstairs as downstairs can be a bit noisy.

    I've been to Madhu's many times, and the feast menu is always hard to resists. It is good value and there are so many different, delicious dishes to try. This visit, we had a group of 11 people from work, including visitors from the US. Most of our group preferred the starters, which was a good thing since everyone was quite full by the time the main curries were served. The curries are very tasty too, but the starters have more unique flavours to try. The service was friendly and efficient.
