Well I think I just had the worst Indian meal experience in my life in the UK. It started off quite well popadoms were good ,chutney's not bad and I do like my mango pickle. So all good to this point, ordered a sweet lassi, not the worst I have had. Selected the Vege Thali as non meat eater. Should have realised that this is not the area for a veg thali,my mistake. It came and looked quite good on first impressions and thats where it stopped. Blando blando, good volume and quantity. But boy was it flavourless. I had a word and it was taken away to be spiced up, so I thought. Came back hotter,not what i wanted. It was decent of them to do this.
I tried to explain how I fealt about the food flavour and quality. The alloo saag had very little saag in it,looking like it had a few bits of spinach. The mutter paneer had a few tiny pieces of paneer. It appeared the base for both the veg curry and paneer was the same. The veg curry had what looked like potato's but was told it had carrots too. Pilau rice was ok, the naan was good. The onion bhaji's were surprisingly ok but not the best.
What finally took the biscuit for me was after explaining the above to the waiter he took it away mostly uneaten approx 75%. He never came back to apologise explain or anything. I waited for 10mins expecting some sort of anything at all. I called the other waiter over who didn't appear to know what was said. The waiter returned who had served me ,I said I was not happy could I see the manager. I was told he was away and would be back but not how long, it was a wait or do whatever attitude. I waited to see Mr Ali who wouldn't give his 1st name and the name of the waiter. Hang your heads in shame over your customer service. Mr Ali told me that they don't produce Dhesy dishes, hang your head even lower in shame. I will not be returning
