Worst curry I have ever had, after ordering a take out we get home to find it's all running with no flavour and Taste. To then ring up and explain politely it's not great, they are rude on the phone and shout at me. Rude people that can clearly not run a restaurant and do not know how to cook... More

So after a really excellent couple of takeaways from here (though a little expensive) we thought we would treat the family to a sit in meal here for new years eve. Well it was a very bad decision! The service was the worst I have ever encountered. The waiter was so unbelievably rude it was insulting (he told us to... More

We have 3yo so can't go to restaurants very often. Instead we opt for luxurious take outs. This is our closest Indian (Bangladeshi) restaurant so I go there. It's fantastic! I'm always warmly welcomed, served a kingfisher in their cosy waiting area. They take my order and when it's ready stow it my insulated picnic box. Always nice to talk... More

We haven't been here in about a year, but still brilliant! They have a discount on at the moment and very reasonably priced. Love the pickles tray!

Dinner as a treat for my eldest son and his friend after cinema. Poor (at times verging in rude) service. Food was very average: very fatty 'Indian' usual affair. When we had a lot left over I asked to take some home, a waiter dropped a single aluminium take away box on the table. I asked if we could have... More

I've been going to Lal Jomi for almost twenty years and love this place. We still get food there regularly, mostly take-aways now due to a new arrival, but the food, whether eaten in or out, is always very top quality. The only complaint, very minor, is that the takeaways trays can be a little greasy, but easily poured off... More

Myself, partner and daughter visited on a Tuesday evening to celebrate my partners 40th birthday. We usually go to Blue Ginger which we love but now we live in Redland decided to try a local. We arrived shortly after 6pm and we were the only ones there. We sat in one of the booths which was nice but we agree... More

We arrived at 8pm for our reserved table (for 4) and were finally served at 10.20pm. It even took about 20 minutes and 2 requests for the bill to arrive when we were the last people there. The waiters didn't both listening: one person asked for a kingfisher (a beer) and the waiter started walking off saying 'ok, 4 kingfishers'.... More

5 of us had a family meal recently here to celebrate my in laws wedding anniversary. We decided not to order starters, and it then took 90 minutes from the time we first sat down for the meal to arrive. As we were guests, and because we didn't want to spoil a lovely event, we said nothing. Normally I would... More

A nice little restaurant with friendly staff. Food was decent with the pickle tray in particular being the best I have seen. Poppadoms were not really crisp enough which was a shame but my Lamb Rogan Josh was nicly spiced and the pilau rice and naans were very good. Considering the 5 of us had 2 poppadums each, one main...
