It was a lovely meal and the usual great, friendly service. Thespians is always one of our favourite places to eat in Stratford-upon-Avon. We will be back there again soon.

We visited for a pre theatre dinner which, as usual was excellent. Don’t forget to present your theatre ticket to get a discount on your bill.

We had a great meal with fabulous food and fantastic service. Really worth a visit and one of the few restaurants which stay open late.

The staff are very friendly, polite and attentive. I had booked a table for ten but arrived with a party of 11 they added an extra table with no fuss even though it was very busy. A few of the party have certain dietary requirements i.e. No yeast or dairy, the staff where very helpful and gave people the right advice and what would suit their needs. The food was fragrant and ful of flavour al the meals went down well. Will definitely be coming here again

Amazing night , amazing food flavours and spices,so many Indians in Stratford,I would definitely recommend as the food taste so fresh,and good choices of wine.. could have another rose on (dryer one) the menu as only one to choose. Zinfandel too sweet for us so we went for white,which was very nice. Mains came a little quick as was still on my poppadoms,but that's us we like to make a longer evening having dinner. Great time. Going back next week.

We thoroughly enjoyed our curries, my wife had lamb keema, I had chicken jalfrezi. We were served quickly, our food was nicely presented, my only criticism would be the waiters, they marauded around the diners the whole time, I found that unnerving, usually waiters stand over to the side and if I need one, I just raise my hand and they come over. Other than that, the evening was a very pleasant experience.

I always pop in here for a pre-theatre meal when I visit Stratford. The staff and food are always spot on. We eat a lot of curries and have to say that the food at Thespians is one of the best. I had a chicken Madras and my husband had a Rogan Josh, insisting it is the best he has had. Can't wait to return. Julie

This is the first time we've booked on-line with Quandoo and it worked very well, even though we booked at the last minute on the day. Thespians was better than we expected and the food was really tasty, all three courses! The staff were very welcoming and the service was perfectly timed. It was our first time at this restaurant and we will definitely be returning.

Great little restaurant. The food is very good and the service is attentive. We visit regularly and are always impressed with the place. The only gripe that we have is a fairly common one with Indian restaurants and that is that it is quite small and the tables are squeezed together very closely. Also the tables are physically very small and not much room for all of that tasty food.
