Disappointed with Sunday buffet

Expensive for just average food. £20 per head With non alcoholic drink. Don't think they have an Indian chef!

Table reservation made for five people, no problems when I rang to increase to eight people. Great choice for expert curry lovers, polite staff, wine not too expensive. Everyone enjoyed the meal and at £30 per head for starters, main course and sided including wine....was not too bad. Discretionary Graturity added at 12.5%

This is simply a great Indian restaurant. Since e demise of The Vari in Newington this place has taken star billing as the finest purveyor or Indisn food for miles (I suspect if The Vari had continued, The Dharjeeling Heights would still have been superior). The interior is modern chic and immaculate. The service has always been excellent, putting many... More

Went here with friends after hearing good things. I was very disappointed with both the service and the food. The first course arrived for 3 people but the 4th person had to wait nearly another 10 minutes. Overall the quality of the food was poor and the waiters very offhand. I will not be going again .

Excellent more upmarket Indian restaurant Visited Friday as party of three. This is my second visit, my first being the Sunday buffet which I thought was very good. All the staff even sang happy birthday to one of the customer who was having a large birthday meal, nice touch. Yet again had excellent service from the beginning to the end.... More
