“not as good as last time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

A return visit as i enjoyed the food here so much last time. Sadly, my last experience here wasn't repeated.
Unfortunately the waitress seemed to be on her first night. She didn't know what drinks were available, how to serve them, or the menu, of what rice was available. Or how to cope with more than 1 customer at a time. Sadly, i was that 1 customer and it still took an age to be served.
Every question had to be referred back to the kitchen, adding in a huge delay in taking my order. It would have been easier for me to go to the kitchen to order and ask the questions directly.
I understand that everyone has to start somewhere, but i think the manager would have allowed her to work with someone else first for at least 1 night to at least get an idea of how to serve.
I was given a complimentary starter due to the delay in taking my order (45 minutes after walking in i finally received my drink), but that wasn't really the point.
When my food did arrive it just wasn't as tasty or flavoursome as i remembered it being last time.
Hopefully a bad spell lasting just a few days, but for me it was a disappointment.

“Friendly service and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

I arrived at 22:20 and the owners stayed open and I was able to enjoy excellent food. The owner if friendly, smiles and shows interest in her customers. I would recommend this as an excellent place to eat locally and it is also decorated to a high standard.

“Truly great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

I stayed near here for three nights and visited here on the first night. I immediately thought that they should be in trip advisor so went back on my third night to make sure it was not just a good night. Bless her, the waitress was on her first night of serving, she was so nervous. The food was as good and I deliberately had something different from the first night. I highly recommend this place.

“Delhi Deluxe Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

This really is Greenock's best kept secret. Unbelievable food, at a wonderful price. Amanda, the owner and her husband, run a wonderful family business, and take pride in their business and the quality of the food and service.

They are accommodating, with probably the best Indian food I have tasted in Scotland. Yes, it is that good. Go try it yourself, you will not be disappointed.
