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

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
