Called in early 5.30pm after going to cinema, the restaurant was empty . Oh my word!! In hindsight we should have walked out the minute I noticed how filthy the windows were and on opening the door the small entrance area was also filthy and...it didn't stop there! The dirt is so deeply embedded in/on the white chairs they are very sticky, the table was sticky, the floor was disgusting, menu was sticky and even the tiles near our seating area were filthy. When my food came I had to send it back as it was cold, the woman who served us looked shocked and said "how can that be its just been cooked!" it was cold! My husband went to the toilet, when he returned he said "best not go in there", he said it was disgusting, the toilet door was dirty and the door handle was disgusting, he said inside was no better and it looked as though it hadn't been cleaned for several months!! Before writing this review I looked at some other reviews and I noticed in a previous review written 4 months ago that a birthday banner was up by a seating area, if the writer of that review reads this the banner is still up! I have, for the safety of others (I say others as we will definitely not repeat our visit), reported this restaurant to North East Lincolnshire Council Food Health Team, I have fears of how filthy the kitchen will be and I hope they pay a visit and carry out an inspection. Just want to add The woman who served us was on the phone when we arrived and she spent the entire time chatting and laughing on the phone, only putting it down to serve us and take my food back to the kitchen, she didn't hang up even when we paid! The woman also told us they would only accept cash, she blamed covid and the cost of £40 per month for the card machine. While my husband settled the bill, I noticed how dirty, grubby and grimy the bar area was, guess I should not have been surprised! I would have thought that being closed re covid would have been a perfect opportunity to do some very deep and thorough cleaning but alas it appears this was not the case!!!! We did laugh to ourselves when we were told the chef was Italian!!!More

My family and I ate here last night, there were no other customers there aside from ourselves which we should have taken as a sign. The place was absolutely filthy, tissues and food on the floor and dirty plates left on other tables. We went...at 7pm and left around half 8/9pm and the mess still hasn’t been rectified in the duration, I can’t imagine how long it was there for prior to our arrival. The table we were placed at had personalised birthday banners up on the wall which I personally feel is unprofessional. Once the party leaves this should surely be removed starting fresh for new customers. The service was very rushed and unprofessional. When this restaurant first opened servers were very professional, dressed smart and very efficient. There was no one aside from a young child to greet us when we arrived, then a man who I assume runs this place came out, dressed in lounge clothes and abruptly told us where to sit and had no patience with us whilst we were deciding what to drink or eat. The food wasn’t actually terrible, tasted like an average Indian, not a lot of flavour but edible. Before leaving the restaurant we attempted using the toilets however upon even opening the door to the restrooms it was vile and filthy, there was urine on the toilets, the floor and the sinks full of grime in both the women’s and mens. Believe me when I say these restrooms had not been cleaned in months. None of us used the restrooms due to this. We then went to pay the bill with card, “we do not accept cash”, no problem but perhaps this should have been mentioned upon booking a table or even entering the restaurant to ensure we could have prepared for this. After returning home after a 20 minute journey we were all violently sick apart from one party member who at 5am the following day was awoken also being violently sick. We rang the restaurant to make a complaint with having the best interest of their business in mind, running a business this unhygienic will not bring future custom. Instead of offering an apology we were spoken to SO awfully - “what is your problem you complain of two things the cleanliness or the food, which is your problem?? I will not accept this, your crazy, I will not refund you, our service was good” This is NOT acceptable. I am writing this review as I do not want anyone else to suffer an experience like this. I am a day on and still feeling severely ill with sickness and sore stomach. I seriously advise the hygiene of this place to be revised.More

After 4 of us had a meal there within hours we were all extremely sick, the bathroom was disgraceful to the point we wouldn’t use or even touch the sink let alone the toilet!! Called the next day to discuss and the guy was rude...and dismissive and didn’t care at all!! Dread to think what state the kitchen is in!! Will never use again!!!More

Hoping I’ll get my money back as they tried telling me I need to pay more money on delivery....Even though I had paid for it all online. Service is shocking, wouldn’t even give one star plate with nothing on it, visible food taste great thoughMore

Ordered take away for family get together for 10 people. Food took nearly 2 hours to arrive. Did not get what we ordered. When called was told they had run out of food as they were busy. Ordered food at 7.15pm. Still waiting for 2...dishes to arrive that were paid for. Staff were rude on the phone, shouted that they were busy and hung up on me. Sent a chicken Korma instead of prawn korma (ordered for pescatarian) was told they had run out of prawns. Ordered onion bhajis and was sent samosas, again told they were busy and had run out. They should not have taken order and our money if they could not provide the food requested. Korma was bland and watery. Awful experience, rude staff and bland food. Never again will I order food from here. Angry that I paid a lot of money for such an awful experience. Delivery man was absolutely charming and lovely however.More

Looking forward to an Indian take away meal, ordered on the Grimsby eats app, put our postcode in, order placed and delivery paid for, order confirmed soon after. 15 minutes later the order was cancelled so I phoned up, apparently the delivery driver doesn’t want...to drive here to deliver, despite delivery being paid, order confirmed and money taken. I think it will be good if you live in Waltham, anywhere else will just be too far. I’ll try somewhere else. Disappointing. Look at my wonderful food below. P.s I put 2 stars instead of 1 because I couldn’t confirm nor deny if the food was any good otherwise it would be 1. Regards Hank-MarvinMore

We booked a table for 3 at 5pm on Wednesday with our 86 year mother in law. Restaurant not open at 5pm, rang their number and no answer, no lights in restaurant. Checked their website and confirmed should be open at 5pm. Spoke to their...delivery driver and informed not normally open until 5:30pm. Decided to go back to mother in laws House to get car as she couldn't stand for 30 minutes. Eventually open at 5.25pm no explanation, no apologies no nothing. We were then presented with a less than average selection of main courses which quite frankly I could cook better myself. This all served in an ambience of no other guests and a child in the corner with their tablet turned up loud watching some video show which was conflicting with sub average Indian music. As an example of an Indian Experience it certainly was, but not on a good way! Absolutely rubbish and wouldn't come back if you paid me £1000. Avoid at all costs.More

Ordered several dishes, lamb was grizzly and chewy, vegetable danzak had no taste and no heat. Biryani sauce was missing along with poppadoms. On collection at the time they said food wasn't ready and had to wait another 10 minutes. When I phoned to say...Biryani sauce was missing, they were rude and said the chef forgot to put it in with the rest of the food, no real apology and they put the phone down. WILL NOT BE USING AGAIN.More

Wasn't impressed, it was nothing to do with the food it was the service and the restaurant itself. The cutlery was all greasy. The toilets where filthy, the waitress acted like she had dementia. When came time to pay she said we only take cash,...which I wasn't happy about. So we all went to a cash machine outside. We told her we want to split it 3 ways but then she said " oh we have no change" (convenient) . After kicking off a bit she found some, strange that 🤔. Won't bother going again.More
