As soon as we walked in, we were directed downstairs. It was very tight upstairs. Downstairs too seemed tight. As i sat down i felt as if i was falling off the affixed bench. They were so narrow off the wall. Also, we had to pull table forward from the wall ourselves whilst waiter stood and watched!
We were soon directed back upstairs.
I was not comfortable there either, as i was on inside and my husband sat on outside and the table was set (by us),to our comfortability until the waiter asked my husband to push his chair and also the table in due to lack of space.
Didn't get great service at all as waiter (older guy) was not attentive! When we ordered drinks, he told us to wait and came back to us only after he cleared tables (they were not busy).
We had poppadoms and went straight into ordering mains as we had drinks and tapas at another place beforehand. The waiter came across as annoyed when he suggested we have starters and when we told him we weren't that hungry for them. His actual words, 'what are you doing here then?' My husband joked and said 'ok we'll go then!' To which there was no response.
I ordered an Austalian wine initially but didn't fancy it again so asked for the drinks menu. As soon as he handed it to me, he badmouthed the wine i has just drank. I laughed it off. He then suggested I try another wine. I said ok. He took my glass away, didn't come back for ages and started tidying up behind his serving counter. 6 or 7 mins later he decided to open up a bottle and let me taste abit then told me its not the one he suggested because they'd run out!!
Overall, to much faffing about and not enough attention to detail at all. Toilets are up some awkward stairs and are horrible and tiny. Need to be addressed alittle in my opinion.
Food was mediocre. Biryani was bland.
Usually leave a tip in every restaurant, not here!
I'm an average sized female, so shouldn't really be made to feel like Alice in Wonderland when I'm paying top prices and merely trying to celebrate my husbands birthday.
Staff overall did not have friendly faces on them at all. Our waiter (older guy) tried to be funny but was just annoying. Shame!!
