Nothing would get me back to this restaurant. It is expensive, not massively expensive you can't complain if the food would have been drop dead amazing, it's Knutsford not Rusholme. However the food is a massive let down. My wife visited three weeks earlier with work and said it was fantastic, her favourite Indian and she couldn't wait to go back. This evening we went back and were first through the door, she was shocked at the difference. The vegetable Biriani had no flavour, none, very few vegetables and was swimming in grease. The sauce was a very disappointing portion size but the issue was the flavour, there was none.
The mixed grill had very nice chicken, couldn't fault that but the kofta only tasted of cold lamb fat like a regrettable poor doner kebab. The chops were burnt to a crisp outside, actually burnt to a cinder like they had fallen in a fire, but the inside was raw, red blood raw.
The food tasted old, no flavour, no spices, not fresh and exciting, such a disappointment, I couldn't taste any Indian spice at all, not even the very strong flavours. I regret every mouthful and was only left with a very fatty after taste

Rest assured, your comments have been passed on to our kitchen and team here in the hope that the same mistakes are not repeated again.
Our manager was, however, surprised to learn that you felt the food was so bad that evening, having asked you a number of times throughout your visit if everything was to your satisfaction. Whilst I understand that sometimes customers do not like to complain when in a restaurant, choosing instead to vent their frustrations on review sites such as this, I'm certain that if you had passed on your feedback at the time, the team would have done their utmost to rectify it there and then.
