Went to this place due to a recommendation. Had to wait about 10 mins for a table on a Sunday night. We ordered a mixture of spice and non spicy (for the kids) dishes. The wings were amazing... After a great start I couldnt wait for the mains.. However, the mains were mediocre, which was such a shame...

Ordered butter chicken and Peanut paneer something something and butter naan. Tried some sweet dish - girlfriend tasted carrot, i tasted pumpkin... we bot tasted the cashew. All round highly recommended if... More

Open house is one of those restaurants which always delivers. The menu doesn't change but the selection of South Indian curries is excellent. An easy option, open every day of the week. Airconditioned when hot and warm during cold weather.

I had lunch with friends at the Open House. From the starters to the main meals, everyone enjoyed the delicious spicy mutton and chicken served with buttery naan and vegetable rice. We all sat at a round table which was great for conversation and sharing of the different dishes. This is my fourth time at the restaurant and i was... More

Probably as we arrived late into the evening, restaurant staff more interested in going home. Asked for food to be spicy hot.....but received bland and mild tomato sauce. I would suggest that it would be better to visit before 8pm as then waiters are on the ball. All in all a dissapointing culinary experience this time around.

We had a family dinner on our wedding anniversary and had a memorable experience. The service was very good and the meals were fresh as well as very delicious.

We were a large group of 10 and were seated at a rectangular table which made it very difficult to share food and have conversation. The food was mediocre and Overpriced. You can get better Indian food at other restaurants for half the price. The female toilet cubicles were small and the door swings inwards which made it that much... More

This restaurant is great, based on the pictures and the outside when I arrived, I wasn't expecting the atmosphere to be as nice as it was (not white linen tablecloth or anything, but definitely well kept). The service is only a 3-4/5 depending on what you're expecting as the staff could have been a bit friendlier, but I wouldn't put... More
