Great food ok service, tables also crammed in too close together particularly during covid pandemic
Great food and great service. Safe and friendly environment, felt Covid secure.
The food was very good but the staff unfortunately very rude.
Located along Sheep Street, Thespians Indian Restaurant is perfect for dinner and drinks before or after you and your company watch Britain’s, and the world’s, best actors tread the boards in one of this famous Warwickshire town’s many theatres. Close to Stratford-upon-Avon’s Courtyard Theatre and The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, diners at Thespians receive a handsome discount when they produce their tickets to a show at either of these prestigious venues.
Thespians menu has been specially curated by a master chef versed in the intricacies of Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine. With recommendations from Egon Reney and the Michelin Guide, the food from this Sheep Street, Stratford-upon-Avon kitchen is the real deal. The chef’s special recommendations include bokhari gosht gonta (a slow-cooked lamb dish, marinated in exotic fruits, with a medium spice kick), peppered quail, saffron fish, spicy king prawns in a coriander and mint sauce, and deluxe tandoori grills. Always served with a smile, Thespians is the default restaurant for Stratford-upon-Avonites in search of dramatically good South Asian food.
