“Dont bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Got to admit, in all my years, ive never had to walk out of a restaurant, but this one takes the biscuit (pappadom)
Tattenhall has a few eateries, with good reputations, but think we must have picked the donkey with this one
Arriving at 18:45 we were seated, 10 mins later we were asked if we wanted a drink. When the drinks arrived, we ordered pappadoms, a starter & main course. Pappadoms were quick, but stale. The starter arrived 30 mins later - quite good (Bhajis & a mincemeat / egg kebab). Starter plates were taken 30 mins later. Whilst there we noticed quite a few couples looking at each other with the same irritated expression, indicating wheres the food. A couple close by had to wait 30 mins to be asked what drink they wanted!!. All this time i must add, loads & loads of carrier bags full of takeaways, were being passed through the restaurant to be collected, leaving seated customers in a state of what could be described, as bewilderment, as to the poor table service. After 2 hours waiting for our maincourse we went to the desk & cancelled our meal, paid for what we had & left. We then called at the local convenience store, & bought a tikka masala for 2, went home & probably heated it & ate it faster than if we had stayed.
2 points to be noted, which we mentioned before we left:-
They appear to be a takeaway, primarily with a restaurant bolted on the side
At no time in 2 hours, despite having empty glasses did any one ask us it we needed another drink or indeed apologise for the length of time it was taking to complete the order.
Never again!!!!!
