Wow, what a great dinner with outstanding service,distinguish touch of food presentation, Very clean & modern bright restaurant over a charity shop. Food can not be beat both seafood and steak. Drinks quality outstanding as well but make sure you leave room for dessert. A little pricy but worth it!

We visited The Exotic dining for the first time this evening & absolutely loved the place. The staff were very polite and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. As for the food it was by far the best Indian meal we have had in a very long time! The prices are exceptionably reasonable & it's very convenient to where we... More

We were seated and served promptly. The restaurant is decorated nicely, though the toilets could do with some modernisation. Also, on the particular night we visited it was quite cold at times in the restaurant. The food came quickly and was of a high standard. The staff were friendly and helpful.

poped in on recommendation, got a table although the place was very busy. We arrived at 8pm... the staffs were very welcoming. The Bison steak was melt in the mouth delicious served with chips. The selection of wine was good,bit expensive for me;) We all had desserts which, again, were delicious. Would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in... More

A group of 40 local cyclists descended on Exotic Dining for our Christmas social and we were not let down. I did not hear one bad word about the service or the food that was provided. I had the chicken malay for starter, vindaloo, pilau rice and chilli naan for main. All were cooked perfectly and filled a large hole.... More

In terms of food, if you’re not restricted to a no carb/no cheese/no fun diet, then there’s almost too much to choose from on the menu in this beautiful restaurant that I experienced. I eventually decided on the 'exotic special biryani'. The portions sizes were more than enough, the food was piping hot and every dish's flavours are delicious. The... More

This restaurant is one of the best Indian restaurants, my family and I have ever eaten in. The food is fresh; vegetable locally sourced ( I think) and of course everything is home made by the very talented and friendly staff. The owner & his staff always go the extra mile to make everyone feel welcome and the service is... More

It was a real treat to find somewhere with delicious food that was gluten free and dairy free. That combination is not that easy to find in general. We enjoyed Nali gosth, babri duck & gluton free chapati. Our son loved his dairy free ice-cream. The food is delicious, and incredibly good value. The restaurant had a relaxed and friendly... More

The staff did a fantastic job, we was greeted and sat down and was attended too on a busy Saturday evening. However I found my food dry and my beef starter was very tough. We also did not enjoy the wine. However it was a busy night and the staff tried hard. Will return perhaps a day in the week... More
