“Fabulous food but that long long wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Have eaten here and had take ways - the food is excellent, well spiced but not too hot - you can taste the freshness and flavours - the veggie platter starter is great for sharing, the chicken moist - my only grumble is we ordered a takeaway turned up at agreed time for collection and waited a further 50 mins - to an hr the restaurant was empty and it was early evening - this has happened twice disappointing as we ordered well in advance

We ended up having 2 drinks at the bar and boy was it a long wait

“Please dont go!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We visited this restaurant on Saturday evening with friends We pre booked and told no problem for a table.On arrival were left in the bar area even though our table was ready.We ordered poppadoms and no starters 45 minutes after we had finished nothing had been cleaned away and no sigh of main courses.After twice asking where our main meals were they arrived 1 hour 15minutes after we had ordered.Like another review on this site the menu and the reality were nothing like each other.Food was warm at best and totally bland.Complained to manager when bill arrived and told it was an exceptionally busy night.No excuse for the food though.Please if you like Indian food go somewhere else, this is by far the worst Indian restaurant i have ever been too!!!!!.

“Best restaurant in staffordshire”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

If you want a great night out with the lads or the missus, this is definitely the place!!! A pub at the front and a restaurant in the back, it's the best combination ever!!! I don't know why Indian restaurants don't have this setup anyway... Food was fantastic and well presented, hat's off to the chef!!! We were made to feel welcome by the owner and his staff and would definitely recommend everyone we know to try it as it will definitely become a regular night out!!!!

“Good food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012 via mobile

I love this place. The food is good, personally I think above average. But the thing that really makes this place is the friendly service. The owner puts his heart into making it work and it shows. It's just a nice relaxing place to go to eat. The takeaway service is good too, always good to have a chat while waiting :)

Of course it's an objective thing but like most reviewers on here I would highly recommend the Vernon Yonge Arms.
