“Disappointing Sunday buffet lunch”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We have dined here on many occasions and we have never been disappointed before. The chicken was very dry, too dry for me to swallow. The lamb was 'off', there was no pinot grigio, the vegetable curry was mainly potato. The service was up to its usual stanadard, however. Cleanliness was up to standard but the hot water was cold in the ladies' toilet.

“Did they have a bad day?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Went with a group of friends. Nice modern look to the restaurant, good atmosphere and friendly welcome. Service was average and the food also mixed picture between very good and average. One main didn't arrive with the others and when it did, little meat mostly sauce. Poppadom dishes weren't cleared until after the main course was served and there were starters served in between. tried to order drinks during the meal and eventually got them when I asked a third waitress. Reading the other reviews I wonder if they just had a bad day. Wont rush back

“Just wonderful!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

I have visited many times now and every experience has been fantastic. The service is outstanding, you always feel welcomed, the food is delicious and the surroundings are clean, comfortable and spacious. I live within walking distance and think I am very lucky to be so close to one of the best indian restaurants in Bristol! Can't wait to go back again.

“Top Class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

What lovely friendly staff, excellent service and fantastic food we had served yesterday. We were the only two customers at lunch time, and were treated like royalty by the staff. All freshly cooked too. Well recommended.

“Thursday early evening meal- manager saves the day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

My son and future daughter-in-law joined me for an early evening drink ( and I had food too.)The meal was up to standard, as usual. Everything has always been spotlessly clean and the atmosphere relaxing. The staff were their usual courteous selves but they were exceptionally helpful, last Thursday, despite being very busy, just as we were leaving. The manager went above and beyond the call of duty, when our 'yellow cab' didn't arrive to take us up to Colston Hall, for a concert. The traffic was extremely bad, even for a Thursday. (Thursdays are always bad, traffic-wise, in Bristol.)
The manager rang for a taxi for us with a company he knew and trusted, namely, 'A taxis'. They arrived promptly and were very helpful too. We missed about 4 songs but at least we got there in the end!
