“Yummy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I went with family for my birthday. It is split into two, a restaurant at the bottom and above is a buffet. The buffet area was busy whereas downstairs was empty. The food was varied but not extensively, it was delicious however as were the deserts. And yay free drink refills!
The atmosphere was nice and friendly and there were a lot of waiters wandering around.

“Good value, no nonsense Pakistani food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Been here a few times. I've always believed that you get what you pay for. Very reasonably priced, no nonsense Pakistani food (I am a keen Non Veg Indian).

Seems the owners are always around to make sure things run smoothly, which is a good thing I expect.

If you're in a rush, don't want the hassle of ordering etc, then you really can't go wrong with this place in the Ladypool Road Area.

Keep it up!

“a friendly service it ain't!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I went there a month back for the first & possibly the last time. Table was booked for 3.00pm for my nephews 7th birthday. on the day of the booking we had to change the rpeservation to
3.30.when i phoned them i was told it was fine
my parents got there first & as soon as they walked in they were told to be out by 4.is that what you tell customers who have pre booked? The staff were impersonal to the point of rude & the guy behind the bar possibly the manager had attitude issues.
The food was average at best,not much of a selection even if it was lunchtime.the price was ok for what it was.if its a pakistani buffet you're after there are much better options anywhere else. we had a cake for my nephew but as we ran out of time we had to take it home.when we tried to give the "manager" feedback as restaurant owners ourselves he became defensive & claimed no knowledge of the time change of the booking.i wouldnt recommend as i can name plenty of other better restautants
