“Out of It”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

The server was fixing the next, very close table for five minutes as we waited to order. There were only three tables of customers. The vindaloo was pre-prepared, not prepared to order as it is in other Indian restaurants. The prawns in the prawns/spinach were like bay shrimp. We asked for one papadom, got three and were charged for three; condiments were placed on the table, not ordered, but charged for; ordered a small drink, got a large one. The servers seem to be on another planet, and the typical Indian hospitality was completely absent.

“Average”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We were 2 couples on a Saturday night. The restaurant was not half full.
The food was only average, the portions are small. (In most dishes there were only 5/6 small pieces of meat ). In total we paid 20 pounds each person, including drinks, and we had a main each and shared 2 rice and 2 nan + poppadoms. So value for money I would say is not brilliant, its quite expensive for what you get. Their wine list states the house wine as being french, when I asked what kind, the house wine then disappeared and he brought other bottles (not knowing much about any of them). When we decided to take the house wine, it seems its not actually french at all and something very cheap which they charge 12 pounds for.
When we ordered the food, the waiter was very pushy to get us to order Dhansak (which nobody did), so not sure if they had a huge batch of it which needed using or something!
Overall, very average, would probably not return.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

The food was very nice, we've had lamb briyani and butter chicken, which to us non-Indians tasted quite authentic. The servings were generous.

The waiters were very attentive, a little too attentive to be honest, but we didn't mind that.

The restaurant looked modern and presented itself nicely. I'd happily recommend this restaurant.

“What a disappointment.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Felt like they were waiting to clear my plate rather than being good attentive waiters. The food felt like it should be advertised as www.chemical-curry.com as it certainly tasted that way. Poppadoms OK, but chutney's may as well have come from the jar. This place has so much going for it that if it cared more it could be quite something special. Dated early 2013. It will improve I trust.
