Visited on a quiet Thursday on my own. Waited 10 minuted for my beer before I had to get up and remind them that I had ordered one. Starter was decent, but I have had food as nice or better in many Indian restaurants in England; and they brought it halfway through my poppadomms rather than waiting until I was finished. To be fair they did wait for me to go and smoke and go to the loo before checking if I was ready for my main, but that was a different waiter so it may be somewhat variable depending on who serves you.Even then when the food came the same waiter just slammed the plate down nowhere near in between the knife and fork, very little care taken to give me a dining experience; more like simply being fed.The main portions weren't great in either size or taste, the lamb sagwala was bland with a pool of grease in the bottom of the pot; I have certainly had a lot better even as a takeaway. They did remember to ask during my main course whether I was enjoying my meal, but to be fair that is only standard courtesy in the restaurant trade. When I had finished my drink before my food a waiter twice walked right past me and looked at my table, yet still didn't ask me if I wanted another drink. The same waiter also had trouble serving two cups of coffee with a sugar pot to a nearby table, shaking to the point where one of the ladies had to reassure him. I even gad to wait 5 minutes before they came to clear the table, even though I was on my own with only 3 dishes. When I asked for the bill whilst the waiter was clearing I was brought back a wrapped towellette with no bill, and he proceeded to serve several other tables before bringing me my bill, so I waited another 5 minutes before I actually got my bill.For the taste and service the value is poor; I have paid less for the same meal and received better. They didn't even open the door for me on the way out. I am given to believe that this is one of the better Indian restaurants in Bristol, but if it is then anyone who can deliver good Indian food and combine it with halfway decent service should start up here as they stand to make a killing.
