Have seen a couple of poor reviews in February this year complaining about a grumpy waiter. I must say my wife and I had dinner last night and both the service and food was excellent. No complaints. We have been to this restaurant on many...occasions over the last few years and have always had very good service from the staff. Den & MaureenMore

Sorry mayflower but your customer service is terrible . Your food is nice and flavoursome. Waiter is rude and not welcoming. Overall not a nice experience. Probably will think twice before returning

We visited as a family of 4 at 8pm on Friday night and the restaurant was not at all busy; three other tables. There was no sign of any staff when we walked in and after 5 mins a grumpy waiter appeared and we were...seated. This waiter was very disinterested all evening. A second waiter appeared a bit later who was very cheerful and really lovely. Eventually we got our drinks and placed our orders. The dips that came with our poppadoms were freezing cold!!!! That’s a first!! And they were not good!!! The food, when it arrived, was tasty and hot but VERY salty! The grumpy waiter really spoiled things for us and was very slow to do anything at all considering how quiet the restaurant was.More

really enjoyed my food and it was a very reasonable meal. What spoiled the meal was that the waiters kept bringing our order out a couple of plates at a time. The restaurant was not busy in the slightest yet, from my rice and main...meal coming out I had to wait 10 minutes before my side and breads were brought out. I had to leave my dinner to get cold whilst I waited for the rest of the meal as I wanted my side and bread to be eaten with my meal, not after. It also took a long time to get our waiter to take our order. Unfortunately this has been the case other times we have been in the past.More

Had a lovely lunch here with two friends. We visit this restaurant regularly and have no complaints about the food. The service is rather slow but as long as you are not in a rush that's OK but what spoils it for us everytime is...the person who serves us. He is not very welcoming and certainly not friendly. Got a feeling it might put people off, it's much nicer to go somewhere where you get a smile! Pity reallyMore

Had the most wonderful meal here today. Me and family enjoyed the Sunday buffet (order as much as you like from set menu) I've eaten Indian food for 30 years but this was up there with the best I've had. Pleased we gave it a...go and will be back for sure. Also to top it off 5 star hygiene rating !!! Don't see that too often these days. Images include our bill which was for 4 people and a ridiculous amount of dishes ..well done guysMore

We ate here tonight. Place is very shabby inside and outside. Staff looked unkempt and not at all smart. We waited one hour for our food to arrive.it wasn't busy, only another two tables were in there.I had chicken tikka and had to ask for...salad. Portions are small and very salty. Wont be going there ever again. Worst indian meal ever. Didn't even get a chocolate with the bill.....unheard of.....and only got £15 discount instead of £20 as it was weds eat out to help out!!!!!More

Came in here with few friends. Waiters did not seem interested in serving us what so ever. Waited 15 minutes for drinks to arrive and another 10 minutes for poppadoms. Food was ok but service is very poor. Shame really as the restaurant does look...nice from the outside.More

It is good news that you have reopened for indoor dining and we were so pleased to be able to book a table with you on Tuesday last so we could enjoy a lovely meal as we celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. As ever, the...food and service were first class and we were full of gratitude when we realised that you had opened the restaurant for us ( as you are usually closed on a Tuesday) just so we could celebrate our special day. Thank you so much and we will see you again soon. Dennis and MaureenMore
