The restaurant has a nice feel and decour too it but the food itself was average. The portions are relatively small but ok in taste. I have been better places for a lot cheaper. I did enjoy the food but it was not as good as i expected. Not value for money in my honest opinion. The service was ok.... More

If your idea of a fun filled evening is to have a head waiter who treats you like something he just scraped off his shoe, to wait for 15 minutes before you receive a menu, another ten minutes before they bring your companion their menu, to then be told that the first three things you want to order are off/unavailable/not...

I have only got take away from this place, its always been delicious, well cooked, well flavoured food. I usually get tandoori roti here with saag chicken, you can't go wrong with that. Tastes rich, slow cooked and flavoursome. The pricing is the worst point being one of the most expensive places to get curry in the area.

I visited this place with a group of 12 colleagues. I was "welcomed" with a rather suspicious look by a man in black suit, perhaps a manager or the owner. After bearing this cold welcome, we decided to go with the set menu costing £25 per person. This restaurant used to have good sized portions but on that particular day,... More

Good starter but found the mains and dessert a big let down for the charge. Sauce galore but meat/ chicken deficient.

Kanchans is quite rare really, serving proper authentic Indian food in a nice setting, it's great to look at the menu and not be familiar with anything you get in the normal, run if the mill Indian restaurants, the fact that this place is always packed full of Indian families is testament to its authenticity. Very nice to see traditional... More

An impromptu gathering of friends this restaurant was suggested as one in our party had been years ago and had a fantastic time. Time changes everything it seems, service appalling four hours we sat in this place and were all but ignored our starters and mains were miniscule and waited an age for our dirty plates to be cleared, wine...

Food was very bad.. Kulfi became milk when served.. And we could not understand whether it was naan or chewing gum.. Right from starters, mains, and desserts all were below average and highly priced than any other restaurant.
