“Lovely Indian”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We went here on a Sunday evening after spending the day at the races and very glad we did.
Best Indian meal we have eaten - we both had the lamb which was delicious and tender. The starters were very tasty and the naam bread was lovely. The service was excellent - couldn't of asked for more. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Will defiantly be returning and reccommending to others.

“Dissappointing”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Went here while on a weekend break in York. We chose this restaurant because it was meant to be the best Indian in York.

The first thing I noticed was it was busy and there were a lot of indian families eating...this is a good sign!

The restaurant was very noisy and bright inside. Service was slow and their were lots of jars of Pataks curry paste on the shelves around the restaurant...strange! Not something you really want to see!

The food was ok, but nothing special.

Definitely not the place for a quiet romantic meal.

“The best Indian Restaurant we have ever visited.”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We have visited the Jinnah restaurant a few times before, but we always love to come back because of the excellent food and the wide range of choice as they are having a good price buffet table. The interior is very atmospheric and it is in the heart of the city centre.

However the best thing in this beautiful restaurant is the warm welcome and a member of their staff, who's name is Farook. He is the most polite and friendly waiter we have ever met. He is delivering a really high quality service with his team, and we always get 100% attention.
We are strongly recommend this restaurant to everyone who wants to have a nice dine with a perfect selection of Indian and Pakistani food as everyone have got the chance to selecting the food they like from the big buffet table for only 11.95.
Don't forget to try the Mango Lassi :)

“Review of buffet only - average”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I must admit I am a great buffet lover and have tried many. This one is the worse I ever had.

Prons:
*poppadoms and pickles to start with - nice
*good hot starter - fish, chicken and aubergine
* staff friendly and polite

Cons:
*you have only one plate which is not changeable so you have to carry on using it even if dirty
*the above is because if you leave too many food on your plate you will be charged £2
*food really average, good choice but taste is just average - too many lookalike ''leftovers''
*no fruits nor desserts

I can't say about ala carte food as I have not tried.
