We went today. They don’t give you the discount displayed. Ask vague questions and later charge you double saying you said main dish not side. The food was pretty ok. Don’t give you receipt as well.

This restaurant is not the most appealing one from the store front and being part of Sidewell Street it doesn’t not feel very welcoming. But don’t be fooled by its appearance and have a look in. The food is good and the Chef is happy...More

It must not have been the chefs night because my jalfrezi was curry powder flavoured and the chicken was pre-cooked and bland. They seriously need to improve the standard or they will go out of business. Salad was very good as was the service.

I visited whilst on an business trip. The food was very bland and my colleagues agreed with me. There was a dead spider on my popadom. Rather disappointing all in all.

Thursday early evening buffet. Relatively small choice compared to other buffets but all good, samosas especially.

Eat here occasionally before going to the cinema, which is opposite, we love south indian food so for us this is always a treat. Love the masala dosa (spicy potato stuffed pancake) with a sambar sauce. A real treat.

The food at Dana Pani is reasonably-priced, very tasty, and the staff understand and are happy to advise on which menu options are suitable for vegans (or can be made vegan).
