This is a very odd review to write as will become apparent, however the restaurant was clean & pleasant and the staff friendly and no problem was found with space. The food was excellent I went for the Lamb Achari which was very good and...served as a sizzler, the wife went for the Madhu Murgh which to was well cooked and tasty, the side dishes were Tarka saag dhal and Saag Aloo, with garlic rice and a cheese naan, all which were tasty too in good portion size.
However a review is about the overall experience and there are definitely some strange things about this restaurant.
On arriving at the restaurant and being seated there was a slightly curled up notice printed in quite large font stuck up with blue tack explaining the restaurant didn’t serve alcohol though your free to bring your own, I asked why? The waitress explained the owners don’t drink, I doesn’t bother me as I don’t drink and the wife driving, we were told though that we were free to pop over to the off licence to get some if we wanted. I was kind of glad the owners were not vegetarians though.
On finishing the bill was brought with no offer of coffee or dessert before hand and without request, I would of probably had a coffee too but hey. The bill really was a bit of a no no for restauranting, the items were tallied correctly and the total put in the payment due box correctly below the total box was clearly printed Service charge not included, which is fine, normally I leave a tip , however above this box was scrawled +20% and added 20% to the bill giving a new figure above the total due box, I’m not intimidated or worried about this sort of hokum, though a lot would be, and I always pay in cash so avoiding an awkward discussion about service charges, I gave the tip I was going to anyway and left.
Overall had a good and perhaps interesting celebratory evening, which I remember, more for memories an decent food and company rather than the negatives, would I go back? Simply no, other restaurants around which serve good food too, kind of sad but it is what it is.More
