We thought The Grand Indian opened at 6pm for dinner so arrived at 6.10pm. Already there were others queing and we joined them until the 6.30 opening. We are so glad we arrived "early" as the whole place was full within 10 minutes and others were unfortunately turned away at 6.40! Ive never experienced anything like it! We tried to... More

This was a very pleasant visit. The food was good, spicy and the was a huge variation of dishes, while the atmosphere was casual elegant. The only bad thing happened, when my girlfriend asked for a non-alcoholic beer, she was served a regular beer. This was however quickly fixed. We would in other words consider to return, if we come... More

We ate here twice in two days which is always a good sign, lunch and dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it both times, not the cheapest option but worth it.

After reading the reviews in trip advisor, I decided to go here for lunch with the family. We were hoping for some real Indian food and were quite disappointed. For starters, none of the waiters knew anything about Indian food and couldn't make any valid suggestions. The service was also extreme lacklustre, we had to ask multiple times for pepper... More

For a "5 star" restaurant the service is a joke. Maybe they only like rich looking people...but Make sure you sure you don't take a table outside. Apparently those tables are only for you to sit at and watch the people inside the restaurant eating. They won't serve you if you sit there. Also they put a sign up on... More

The waiter did not have good knowledge about the food they offered and handed over the menu to us. He recommended Veggie Thali and I asked if it was north or south Indian. He claimed North Indian. When I asked... More
