Chaotic but brilliant

We visited this restaurant on Monday evening and on entering it was chaotic. They do a roaring trade in take-a-ways, the telephone never stopping. Because of this we would recommend the upstairs restaurant. Our dinner was absolutely brilliant - the service was a little slow, mainly because of a... read more

Ordered a take away over the phone and arrived to collect at the time specified, but had to wait a further 15 minutes before my good appeared. During that time I saw diners in there looking somewhat unhappy as though they had been waiting a very long time. My meal was delicious and I'd eat it again tomorrow. My wife's... More

Table for two accommodated very quickly despite being full.Very personal service. Delay with main course but apologies and complimentary bahji which was so light and delicate. My main course was really garlicky and spicy with green chilis and just the way I like it. Staff were fabulous all round, especially the guy that looked after us with the drinks. Real... More

Visited this restaurant on a cold February evening. The welcome was as frosty as the weather, such miserable staff. 2 other tables occupied by drunk foul mouthed diners, not the relaxing night out we had hoped for. Average food, what's happened to this place???? used to be so good. Won't be returning.

Got there and asked for a table, we were shown a table up stairs out of the way, so we asked for the seats above the restaurants window. We then waited half an hour after being served drinks, before someone came to take our order. When we ordered i asked for rice chilli chicken tandoori, and a portion of bhaji,... More

We visited as a group of 6 on a Tuesday evening. We had booked a table the day before for 1830 and arrived promptly. On arrival we order 6 beers and asked for 2 poppadoms each. It took 45 for the poppadoms to reach us and there was only one other table of about 8 people in the restaurant. When... More

I believe my review title says it all, actually. Three nights each week, Sima offers its banquet 'deal' for £9.95' if pre-booked: Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The key number to sign up is 01766 515570. I went with four friends, and we were given a table on the first floor. The banquet deal is a starter, a main, a side,... More
