“Poor food, uninterested and rude!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Had dinner at the Dhan Shiri last night. Unfortunately the food was very poor having to be returned a number of times. But what was worse, was the total lack of interest shown by the staff to the point they were very rude and disrespectful.

There are a number of Indian restaurants in Brackley all have staff with better attitudes and offer better food. Therefore I would avoid the Dhan Shiri!!!

“Usually brilliant, but not so now”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We have always dined at the Dhan Shiri when in town. Great food and service. So it was a total shock to come back, after some time away, to find it had changed.
We were harried, shouted at, ignored and treated very badly as we dined one Friday evening.
As we sat down, we were given an immediate option 'Cobra or Kingfisher'. No wine list? No options? It's one beer or the other.
We waited about 25 mins for the beer to arrive and then as we went to order were shouted at "Come on! Come on!" he said AS WE WERE SPEAKING.
The food was average fayre, not as good as it used to be. We tried to get a second drink but failed as the waiters were distracted.
Curiously, we sat by the door, and we watched as customer after customer came in to place take away orders. They waited for the food to be cooked and then took it away. There must have been eight or so orders went out as we waited for our food. Our food took over an hour to arrive.
When we came to pay, the mobile card machine ran out of batteries. The card machine was snatched from our hands. When he returned - huffing and sighing - he said "do it again!" No manners whatsoever.
Ok, it was busy, but we could see for ourselves that we were being sidelined to deal with the take-away orders.
So: slow, unbelievably abusive, rude service and average luke-warm food.
What on earth has happened to the place? We simply will never go back - we're off to Chilli and Pepper from now on.

“Often visited with customers...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Dhan Shiri is a classic Indian restaurant. Food is freshly prepared; plentiful; tasty; and with plenty of variety (including some dishes you MIGHT not be quite so familar with!!). Service is excellent; premises are clean and well presented. Right next to Chilli and Pepper but both survive - which in itself says a lot about both of them!!
