We had a great evening. Both the food and service were excellent.
Fabulous food as always - the service was outstanding too.
Great service & food as usual. Love visiting this great restaurant, have come here for the last 12 years & will continue to do so, great place!
Excellent food and staff - highly recommend and great value
Al Frash is our favourite place to eat in the country. Every time we take a trip to the north or midlands (from Reading) we detour on the way home via Ladypool Road. The food is always delicious and the service friendly, efficient and helpful. This last visit was no exception; the food was tasty and we ordered just the right amount. The atmosphere is always pleasant although a loud, arrogant know-it-all customer at the table opposite grated on us a bit. Luckily our food and the other patrons helped to drown out his tedious conversation and rude manner. To his credit, the waiter simply got on with serving everyone regardless. Already looking forward to our next visit!
We used to love The Al Frash but .. Oh Dear, last night was very very poor. We waited 80 minutes for the mains to arrive. After complaining about the long wait food finally arrived... My meal (Butterfly special) was good, others (eg Chicken Rogan) "ok", but my son's meat balti was the worst Balti I have ever tasted, very bland with a strange sweet smoky taste. Part of the meal never arrived at all and the noise level was such that we were having to shout across the table to each other. The waiting staff were friendly and clearly working hard but something is very wrong here. One of the poorest curries I have had anywhere, £70 that I would much rather have spent elsewhere and sadly I cant see me returning to Al Frash in a hurry. A real shame.
It was my Birthday do with friends and family. Had a fantastic time. Al Frash were great - v helpful, accommodating, great service and fab food
Good friendly service, although very quiet when we visited. Have been eating here on and for years and we always have great food. starters plentiful and tasty. Baltis were good but lacked the unique smokiness that baltis are renowned for on this occasion (maybe different chef?) Still very good tho and won’t hesitate to return.
We found the restaurant quite easily, there was a small car park opposite or you could find a space in a nearby street. Pleasant greeting and attentive service and very quick. We had pappadoms and then ordered. This was all very efficient and all came out piping hot, well presented and tasted good.
Very friendly and efficient service and we all loved the food. The naan and paratha were great but the butterfly chicken special balti was sublime. You can take your own alcohol. Big recommend but you have to book!!
