Good Food, good ambience and a good night! The restaurant is a family owned and has been trading since 1947, a testimony in itself of the quality and expertise. We were craving for an Indian Chai and they offered me one off the menu and on the house. 5 star there! Will be back and would recommend... read more

Went with a table of four friends last Friday night. Absolutely perfect! The staff were more than accommodating as we booked last minute. Had a couple of onion barji for starters and was packed full of flavour. Followed by possibly the tastiest chicken tikka masala I've ate, the meals were well portioned and full of flavour. The bill came And... More

Ordered a curry tonight for me and the wife. Paid a £2.50 delivery charge and when the food came they had sent my wife a starter instead of a main and they somehow sent me onion bhajis instead of onion pilaw. When my wife phoned up to complain she was told we would have to go to the shop to... More

The food just lacked any real flavour, poorly seasoned and cooked, and, as it was a takeaway, it wasn't hot either. Meat was tender, was only good point. Mediocre iverall. Improvement needed...

So I went to get cash, paid and then waited until 8.25pm. The lady said the machine had been broken since Wednesday, so why didn't they tell me this... More

Having gone with other Indian takeaway services near Kismet - most notably the one next door- we decided to believe their promotional material and give them a go. We will not do it again. Our chicken tikka main did not come with salad or yoghurt dressing and all portions were small when compared with competitors. The most significant issue however... More
