“unbeatable yummy spicy bbq!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Eat in, Takeaway or delivery. Food is always tasty and fresh and can order mild medium or hot all watered down with cold passion juice!

“Hashmi hot flash.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Hashmi boasts of being the place to be for chicken tikka, which is what I had when I visited. However what was supposedly mildly spiced was too hot to handle, thankfully the excellent tangerine juice ( a must have) helped the food go down. The naan is frankly very bland (even the butter naan), the service is slow, the food took over 15 minutes to be served. The ambience is lacking, noisy place, with glaring lights-not a great place for a date. Aside from the excellent tangerine juice the visit was not worth it.

“Was good but standard are dropping while prices are rising”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Hasmi was THE place to go for Indian barbeeque, good food, quick service.. Sadly the standards have dropped since 2006 when i first visited them. The prices have almost doubled for most dishes in the restaurant and the quality has dropped. The chicken tikka a famous dish and most popular dish is not the same, the meat is dry and does not have the juices and flavours as before. If you place a phone order, the person answering ( believe is one of the brothers/owners) needs to improve tremendously. The phone call discussion is same all the time, Starts with a sad sounding " Hello Hashmi" followed by "Number" here he wants me to give my phone number to check my record, " Whats the order". Use of words like please, thank you for the order, which should be common for any restaurant/service industry are missing. They need some competition and hope Nargis another restaurant nearby can give them some heat to improve.
