Good indian food

Went here 1st night in Monte Gordo. Got off to a bad start with samosa, pastry very hard, cooked for too long. Main courses however were lovely - vegetable curry and chicken tikka masala. Service was great too. Would definitely eat there again.

It seems ironic that just last year I gave this place 5 star rating and now I'm giving it a 1... What the hell happened in this last year? I don't know if the cook they lost the chef or if the owners changed, but this place went down hill. The food took a lot of time to arrive even... More

Hence the fact we visited 3 times during... More

I know what I like and simply ordered it. The waiter was very attentive (almost too much) and excelled at remembering your name which he used each time he attended to you. I felt special by him using the title "Lady" before it ! All was great and the Peshwari Nann wasn't a mile off what it ought to be... More

After our last visit to the Taj Mahal two years ago we were surprised that Thakur the waiter remembered our names and even where we sat. Outstanding customer service and fantastic food. Highly recommended. Greetings to Thakurand his team from Emma & Sarah of Derby :-)
