Attentative staff that are always around to help (without feeling like they’re lurking) and nothing is too much for them. They’ll also tend to bring you an extra dish they’re trialing at the moment and even bring coffee and desserts as a treat without ordering...(or charging)More

We had planned just to eat back at the NEC but after a last minute shopping trip, we looked for somewhere with good reviews and were not disappointed. The staff were very keen to make sure we were comfortable, offered advice on the menu and...brought free dessert at the end. My dining companion and I had the special starter trio of prawn, chicken and onion pakora which was filled with flavour. He had the chicken bhuna, I had king prawn Bhuna. Both very tasty, fresh and with balanced spices. We will be recommending and returning again.More

Waited over half hour for home delivery. We phoned the restaurant and asked about our order they told us it hadn't been processed so they would start order now and delivery would be over half hour .we declined and asked for our money back ....They told us we can only have a credit note which we declined . Consumer rights tell us we are in our rights to have our money back .the person on the phone got really really rude almost raising his voice. We would never order from this place again . We are trying to get our money back thru PayPal . So no curry and 35 quid down , be aware when ordering from this place it could be you next . You've been warned ⚠️More

Overall the staff seemed attentive and keen, however it felt as if the waiters were looming over the table. Further, we ordered a samosa chaat - and I have never had any chaat similar; extremely bland and unauthentic. The mains weren’t much better either. We...were also given a dessert promptly even though we didn’t ask for one - so had to eat it anyways.More

Firstly, did you order direct or via a referral service? On one occasion, Just Eat accepted an order (and stated Jilabi confirmed it) when the restaurant had shut early and there was no one in the building. Just Eat refunded... More

It better to bring your own drinks. I know you have to be careful not to serve any alcohol after 12pm otherwise your licence will be taken away
