Good food, great service

Went to Kizmet for a birthday meal with my wife & 2 boys. Arrived and was shown to our table straight away. We all opted for the Sunday special (£10.95 per person) starters were great, mains were fantastic and the waiter even managed to make the boys laugh with him humour. We had a great night and... read more

Only called in as shikara next door did not have a table for 6 available. So pleased they didn't as the food in kismet was incredible. The lamb in my tikka starter was so tender and my balti main was possibly best I've ever had. All of my friends agreed that the food was excellent. Staff were warm and friendly.... More

Best curry in the area and I've tried most. Warm welcoming friendly staff without being too overbearing. I eat inside or get food delivered at least once a week and have never had a problem. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else, nor should you. Try it and be amazed...

Excellent as usual. Great food, great atmosphere. Will always choose the kismet in the future. The delivery driver is a bit of a babe too.

I would like to start by saying that I have NEVER written a bad review for any restaurant that I have ever visited, however as my girlfriend and I left the restaurant feeling so disappointed and quite frankly disgusted with the experience I felt obliged to do so. I had decided to treat my girlfriend to a New Years Eve... More

We visited with family and despite being the only table we had a great night. Good food and service were excellent - it being the night before New Year's Eve (100 booked in 3 sittings!) the staff probably enjoyed the breather. Mains were all delicious - tandoori king prawn were fantastic not too spicy. Just watch out for meals not... More
