Majorly disappointed

A few years ago I visited this restaurant regularly and rated it highly. What has happened. The curry certainly is not authentic and both of our curry sauces seemed to be thickened with arrowroot or cornflower as they resembled a gel like consistency. Both curries seemed to have the same base... read more

Lovely food, served in a nice, gentle atmosphere. The staff were friendly and polite service, The range on the menu was good and the specials were excellent. We've also used the takeaway service and that is equally good. Would recommend to anyone who likes good Indian food.

Came here on the way home from the cinema on Saturday evening. They were pretty busy but we were seated quickly and didn't have to wait to order drinks or food. Both our curries were very tasty and good sized portions ( in fact we could have done with just one portion of rice between us) Only downside was tthat... More

This was a bad experience from start to finish, most of what I write would have been forgiveable if the food had been good, but the sad fact is it was the worst curry I had. So to begin when we got there, despite booking, we stood in the door waiting for our table for at least 10 minutes. Once... More

I visited last Friday at rimjhim with my family. Enjoyed really nice food. There're lots of different and authentic dishes in menu. I really found a nice atmosphere to spend a nice evening for dinner. I'll be definitely back to try some other exciting dishes...

We were most disappointed with Rimjims Colden Common. After all the hype we expected to be blown away instead we went home hungry and with an empty wallet.
