I am a big fan of Tandoori. I like to try new places and I have been to most of the Indian Restaurants in Reading now! We actually walked out of the River Spice because we got no attention from the staff there and decided to give this place a chance. Warm welcome and seated in a good manner.... but... More

Went with a large group of friends on a Friday night and had a great time. Good service, superb food and great value. Love the Standard Super - yeah, I know, it's only chicken tikka massala - but it's delicious. Stand out dish - the marinated sea bass. Fabulous. Very sad to read the unfavourable reviews. Also a bit alarmed... More

I never expected such a staff service which was awful and lack of attention even though restaurant is not at all busy. after a 10 min wait one waiter came to us as we are ready to order food he...

Booked for a lunch shortly before Christmas. The restaurant was empty, except for a few tradesmen coming and going. The service - when present - was friendly, but really lacked attention. The server disappeared for 10-15 minutes at some times. Once the food was ordered (starters and mains), it took about 25-30 minutes to arrive. When it did, one of... More

From previous visist to this restaurant on Friday & Saturday nights by friends we were reccomended this retaurant. The car was parked right outside the restaurant on the pavement. Three of us arrived on Sunday at approximately 8-00pm, with no reservation booked. The restaurant was not full so we managed to get a table quickly. There appeared to be just... More

When in Reading this has been one of our regular stops for some thirty years and we have never been disappointed. The Sunday buffet is a particular favourite but we always find the service and food good quality and value for money. My wife likes very hot curry and I like it mild and not too spicy and I always...

I tried the Sunday buffet. Fairy conventional food but I supposse that is to be expected in a buffet for all tastes but there were a few interesting twists. It was a firiendly atmosphere with (what I presumed to be) friends and family of the owner also dining in the afternoon, but kids running around might not be for you.... More

Went there with a large group of people for a birthday and very dissapointing. Drinks took ages, food not nice compared to what it used to be like and it was warm at best. The whole place needs decorating with new tables and chairs needed. The fish pond I would question taking up half the restaurant with some very dodgy... More

I ate here on Friday night with friends - we arrived at 8.30pm and ordered our meal. We enjoyed a couple of popadoms first. The waiter serving us kept coming out with very inappropriate comments which left me feeling slightly confused and embarrassed. At 9.50pm when we were still waiting for our dinner to arrive I asked him if there... More
