good lunch

popped in for lunch and although the menu was more restrictive than in the evening it still offered a good variety of meat and vegetarian dishes. The 2 course special was plenty for a lunch and my wife had a biryani of a size that she could not finish. Food was tasty, service was good, nuff said :-)

Mem-Saab is the only Indian in the main food court in the shopping area of Highcross. Therefore my friends and I decided to try it out. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, however I would say the stairs leading to the dining area needs updating as it looks run-down. The menu itself is very appealing and has a good... More

Great service and exceptional food soon followed. The waiters were always asking how the food was and offering to re fill our drinks. To top it off the... More

Went Saturday night, booked an early table for 2, food was really good, had the Salmon to start which was lovely and the chicken shashlik for main, would recommend. There were lots of waiters floating around, but almost impossible to get the attention of one to ask for another drink...meal was expensive and has a 10% service charge applied, which... More

On arrival rushed to table in cold upstairs glass room. Wrong food orders brought out and the correct food was lukewarm and bland. Food very expensive and I expected better for price.The staff appeared more interested in getting customers to buy extra drinks than the food quality.Nice setting but no better than your average curry restaurant but at twice the...

Had dinner here with my wife and had a lovely ambience to the restaurant . The food is delicious and elegantly displayed. Staff are very helpful and polite. Dressed smart and very professional . Fantastic restaurant . A little pricy but that reflects the level it stages itself on.
