We used a groupon voucher and added to it- very easy, they just added the difference to the bill. The service was great; the waiter was very warm, friendly and helpful. The food was the best Indian meal I've ever had. You must try this place!

I GUARANTEE THIS WILL BE THE BEST CURRY YOU HAVE EVER HAD! The curry I had was just like the curry's I've tried at friends homes which were made by their parents etc! Great staff, that really make you feel at home! Brilliant all around! Atmosphere is a little hit and miss, purely because it is a large restaurant!

We bought a Groupon voucher given 2 courses for 2 people for £12.50, given this is so cheap our expectations weren't high. We arrived just after 6:00pm (when they open) and the place was unsurprisingly empty, so service was very attentive as a result, I must say to stick to the Groupon offer the choices are very limited and a...

Having been to Dani Pani on a number if occasions before and been very pleased, the service this time was really slow. We gave up on the idea of dessert and coffee as a result. We will not be going back again. Very disappointed.

We were recommended this restaurant by a past customer, as we were in are area we tried it out. The restaurant service - sloppy, the FOH didn't know his menu. The starters - was like nothing on this planet, by that I mean the colours, tasted bland, and watered down. The mains - cold, vegetarian dish was served with meat... More

Don't know why this place isn't more popular, went 9pm Saturday night and we were the only ones in the restaurant. Since our last visit they have stopped doing the Vegetarian Thali but there is still plenty to choose from. The Dosa's were delicious as was the garlic nan bread. As you can imagine the service was excellent, like having... More

Yes had a lovely meal via Grupon voucher. We could not get through on the phone for some reason so just turned up and the staff were fine with this. This place is a bit special with dishes I haven't seen before, so worth a visit for that reason alone. The Guy who served us was friendly and helpful. Will... More

I ate at this indian restaurant with a Groupon voucher. The best one during my staying in England. The waiter is very kind, the food really high quality (the meat was really tender and tasty). Best quality at this cheap price!

Had been to a business presentation and taken my daughter along too, and it finished late, this was the only decent looking restaurant in the street and it was open till late. Good service, the Kingfisher was fine and the food was very good and reasonably priced. We had meat samosas, really crispy and not oily at all, onion bhaji... More

Reviews seemed very mixed for this place, so thought would give it a try as we had a groupon deal. Sadly, there really are no positives to report. Waiters were flustered and confused. Food was ok but not much meat in the dishes. There were only four tables but it took an hour for our very small starter to arrive.... More
