“Not convinced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Ate here yesterday, menu looked promising, service was quick. In fact the service was so quick the waitress came to see if we would like our main meal at the same time as our starter. We said no, so consequently the main was sent back to the kitchen where it was sat on the hot plate for a further 10 minutes.

Would I eave about the food? No. It was presented nicely but certainly not the best flavours I've ever had.

Thanks for your feedback. We do pride ourselves on the speed of our service. We know that people don't really like hanging around waiting for food for ages! Our menu doesn't actually have starters on it. The smaller dishes are called 'sides & snacks' and as explained on our menu and on the placemat at each dining place, the food comes out from the kitchen as and when it is ready as it is all freshly prepared as the orders come in. This would have been explained to you when your order was taken, and you do have the option at that point to request that your main meals are not prepared until you have finished eating the smaller dishes.

We have a very high proportion of customers from the Indian subcontinent who dine with us; a testament to the authenticity of our food. We don't use any artificial additives at all so the flavours are all natural as they should be, and true to the way food is made in India and in Indian homes, not modified as in many other Indian restaurants. We would hope that you feel able to give us another try at some point in the future.

“Ears need testing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

I went with my friend for the first time to Tamatanga....the start of the visit was very good.....I got to change my choice of meal after I had ordered it nice and easily, thr food did arrive very quickly.... However a waitress came with some chips and when we said we had not ordered them, she took them away, however after another member of the staff came over and said these chips were ours....we said we didn't order them etc etc however it took us three times to tell her we did not order them and for her to leave us alone as she insisted we had ordered them.....we asked for tap water later on (we did order drinks as well at the start but the curry was a bit hot) no water arrived...my friend ordered garlic naan bread and it tasted exactly like my normal naan.....some of them need to get their ears checked.

“Great meal with great service”

Was late on a Sunday evening and looking for somewhere to eat for a party of 20 of us and they welcomed us in and didn't make us feel rushed. They provided great food and service
