My husband and I stopped in here on a whim last sunday night. Two words: bad decision. We've been to Chutney Mary's down the street a bunch of times and love it, but decided to give something new a try. First of all, when we went in, the place only had one other couple, but instead of seating us at one of the -many- other tables, the waitress put us directly next to other other pair. Normall this wouldn't have been an issue, but the tables there are really close together and at times it made conversation awkward because you basically had to whisper so that you were not overheard, or invading the conversation of others. This is a small issue however.
Next up- my husband orders a drink. Nothing fancy, just a cocktail off their menu. Basically vodka muddled with some lime. The waitress tells us that she doesn't know how to make it and so can't serve us. I guess she was the only one there at the time, and at first we were happy she had been honest... however, as she grew repeatedly innatentive and lazy over the course of the evening, by the end of our meal we were pretty sure she had just said this so she didn't have to bother. She never topped up our water, didn't clear our plates, and when my husband politely asked for the bill at the end of the night (after we had been sitting with our dirty plates infront of us for 20 minutes) she said, "all right, i'm coming i'm coming" and rolled her eyes.
All this wouldn't have usually inspired me to rate a restaurant really low; however, the real kicker was the food. If I had made the meal I had (Lamb Korma) for myself at home, I would have thrown it in the bin in disgust. It was incredibly oversalted, the meat was very low quality and stringy, and it was essentially inedible. I don't think I have ever been served a worse meal in a restaurant. I was so surprised, I let the moment pass when I could have sent it back, but we didn't eat it at all. I ended up sharing my husbands butter chicken, which I would describe as "fine". Nothing terribly wrong with it, but nothing good either. The butter chicken is their "signature dish" so I am assuming that is the best they can produce. We also had Naan bread, half of which was not even cooked, extremely doughy and soggy, and a serving of raita, which had clearly been watered down and had the consistency of soup. I usually -love- raita and gobble it up but we left most of it. As we were leaving, I heard another customer order the lamb korma and had a hard time resisting the urge to scream "No! Don't do it!"
All in all, a really poor showing. With the competition being pretty high in Subiaco, I don't quite understand how this place is still getting buisness.
