“Poor experience at above average prices”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I went to the restaurant with my family after seeing their ads some while back. It was a disappointing experience as the food not good and service worst still - drinks arrived well after our main course despite reminder........ and this was with the restaurant mostly empty. The decor of the place is nice. Overall: Poor experience and I shall not be going there again.

“Excellent Decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I went there to celebrate my brother's birthday(a family dinner) I never have come across this style of restaurant in UK before. Village style decor , excellent staff. I have ordered chicken kebabs and tiger prawns which were lovely. Their kulfi is so yummy, it will bring memories of Pakistan . . Overall good experience.

“Best Place to Eat With Family @ Captain Da Dera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Based on the reviews of this restaurant I have to admit I was scared of going their with my family, but as it turns out all the reviews where wrong and or false. The service was grate the staff exactly told us how long the food will take as most of it will be cooked as per order. The décor was excellent, bit dark for our taste but then if your in a village the light of a lantern or lanterns will the more or less the same. The menu & the the items on the menu are very clear & the quantity per portion or portions are really good value for money in light of the environment. The whole experience was grate & the quality & quantity of the food was excellent staff was friendly and very well informed.
Highly recommended to every one with a taste for good food & an eye for a grate atmosphere to eat.

“Best place for wasting time and money !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I dont write a review normally but this one really deserves one. If you want to take a revenge from some one, take them to Captain Da Deera.

After seeing advert on tv went inside and thought lets give it a go this time. Here we go, ordered food waited 45 no sign of food, no one to ask about food order. Finally got hold of chef and he didn't have any clue about the order. Got so pissed off walked straight out with two other mates.

Place looks nice but very dim lights inside and smells disgusting. Sat on the floor carpet with cushions and trust me it was filthy with stains on them. Wish had never walked in by just the looks of it from outside.

Lesson learnt !!!
