“First Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

First reports from other people were not too good - poor service, average food.
But it seems the restaurant has now got its act together. We called in on Saturday evening on off chance, without booking. The restaurant was busy, but we were immediately found a table for two.
The service was very friendly and attentive. The food was served with minimal delay, and was absolutely first class. Beer prices astrononic, though (£4.20 for a pint of Cobra - sadly, par for the course in many asian restaurants).
Good atmosphere too - good to see 'The Coach' back in action

“Highly anticipated but did not live up to expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

We went for a meal here a couple of weeks after it had opened. We were looking forward to eating here as they had previously had a highly regarded Restaurant in Honley. Unfortunately we were very disappointed, the menu was poor with not a great selection of curries to choose from, the service was poor, no friendly smiling waiters, not even any serviettes on the table! It was cold and draughty inside, I don't think they were really ready to open. The food was good but not great, we will continue going to our favourite the pink elephant in Honley and won't be going back to Balooshai.
