“Tasteless Gloopy Sauce Very Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Previously a fan, I note the Banbury restaurant has closed, and based on this visit, this place could follow. £6 for 4 poppadom with tasteless chutney set the scene for what was poor meal.
To be fair the chicken shishlick start was fine. But the two main courses Rogan Josh at £9.50 and Mugli Chicken at a tad less both had the same gloopy sauce totally lacking in any sort of taste.
Likewise the tandoori roti and paratha were uninspiring.
Plenty of competition in Leamington and this place will have to be better than this to compete.

“No glasses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Didn't take my reading glasses so we got the manager to make recommendations - end price was high, but we got their full attention with the service and a tasty meal to boot.....

I would you there again but take something to read with to keep the cost down.

Food was nice hot and timely - worth a try

“Top end curry house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

This is a very nice Indian restaurant, slightly more sophisticated than the average , not full of the usual drunk pub crowd....well apart from a few of our group. Food selections are a little different but are very nicely presented....however the bill will be at least 50% more than the usual curry house offerings. Worth it for somewhere a bit nicer though.

“Would go elsewhere for takeaways in Leamington”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I've never eaten in the Memsaab restaurant, so this review is based purely on my takeaway experience. I have to add though that we used to live nearby and the main reason that we have never eaten in as because the drinks menu was so expensive.

We have been there several times to pick up takeaways, and the food has always been tasty, but the portions seem to have got smaller. It's a bit disappointing when you order a chicken curry and you get a tray of sauce with 4-5 lumps of chicken in it. Needless to say we have started ordering takeaways from Kismet instead and it has been better (and they deliver).

The decor in Memsaab is classy and stylised, but I've never really seen it that busy. But perhaps judging by other reviews, it would be worth a try.
