The last time I ate here was over then years ago when I attended a party at the banqueting suite upstairs. At that time the food was pretty good, however, it was the attitude of the manager/owner that was a let down. It bordered on arrogance and indifference for the guests and I vowed not to ever... read more

We ate here as part of a large group for a special occasion. The food was luke warm and lacked flavour. And the service left little to be desired. Overall, rather pricey for what you get.

Been to Kanchans as a meal out with work colleagues. There were enough of us to book the upstairs hall, so we had more of a private gathering. The canapés and starters were to die for! Unfortunately, that filled us to the brim so we took it slow with the starters. We've booked it for our daughter's first birthday party... More

I visited Kanchans on Tuesday evening with my work colleague. The first thing that stood out to me was the lovely scent in the restaurant and the warm greeting we received. It was as though the staff could not do enough to ensure that we had a wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delicious and I will definitely be returning.

The guy who appears to be manager and taking main orders is rubbish, has forget to smile in his cradle. I am here with my family to celebrate my daughters birthday but decided to go elsewhere for main course as the customer service is so so poor. I would rather be somewhere welcomed with a warm smile!

We used to attend here for medical meetings on a regular basis. The food has always been excellent and the service very good. It always seems to be busy.

I don't understand the low ratings given here. Have been several times over the years, the last around December '14 with foodie friends who were very impressed. We have generally found it good to excellent. The first point is that the menu is not your average Indian. Am not an expert on the various cuisines, so can't characterise it other... More

At one time this place was always packed, that's because it WAS very good. I have been here recently on a number of occasions and it is evident by the number of empty tables and waiters looking for something to do that things are not as they used to be. The whole place needs a revamp, decor, menus, the lot.... More
