We were booked here as a large party so they knew in advance how many of us there would be. On arrival we were all given menus to look at, although some had differing things on them. After about 10 minutes the waiter informs us we will have to have a selection of things from the menu only as they... More

Saturday night dinner with two business associates. Place was empty at 20:00. And I mean empty, not a single person in there from our arrival to our departure at 23:00. Place was also completely silent; no ambient music at all. Took 5 minutes for anyone to acknowledge our arrival. Menu was outdated with half of the dishes 'not available' (the... More

Saturday curry - first time there. Limited menu, over priced, half the items on the menu they didn't have - curry sauces weren't great. Staff was friendly but we would not go back again.

Looking for somewhere to eat, not too far of a walk from the hotel. Outside looks like an old English pub. Inside more like an Italian restaurant. But don't let the looks fool you, this is an excellent Indian. Had popadoms, samosas and onion bagees to start, sauces being the only let down. Main courses chicken tikka masala, korma, egg... More

Delivery arrived, the delivery driver was unsure what he was delivering until we told him... Food was delivered and we found the 'large' is just a medium. That or someone made a mistake. A real shame, the food was tasty but the delivery and service via just eat was atrocious. I certainly wouldn't both again, sadly.

We visited the Mirchi Rasoi speculatively on a Friday night, and were very surprised that we were the only customers. The menu was uninspiring and the dishes were expensive compared to the local competition. We ordered popadums, and were surprised that the chutney tray consisted solely of a small serving of mango chutney with a small yoghurt-based dip. We have... More

Except for the kulfi, we had the standard fare from the menu. It is designed for the English palate, and so was a little less "hot" than we're used to in Australia. Nevertheless, it was delicious food - freshly prepared, and both tasty and delicately flavoured. The staff were more than happy to discuss the various dishes with us. They... More

Trying to reinvent Indian food but not very good service or food. The chutney tray was unusual with unappetizing colours and flavours.

Needing a takeaway meal but wanting a change from our regular venues, my wife and I searched online and decided to give this restaurant a first try. Immediate hurdle was trying to order by telephone, the number given on their website was wrong! On arrival it was very quiet, only one table in use, is this an indication of the... More
