Good food cooked in the traditional way. Consistantly good. Friendly helpful staff.
Sunday buffet good value - a good place to take the family.
Only drawback, not their fault, parking. It's a very busy area with lots of restaurants. You may have to circle the side streets to get parked. Worth thre hasstle when you do.

The key to any restaurant is Good Service, the food can be okay. With Merlins, you get Both! Whether sitting in or take-away we eat a variety of dishes, regularly taking recommendation from the family who run this fine establishment.
No hesitation in recommending this restaurant?

Stuffed parater was oily bland with absence of vegetables. Prawn dish of £12.80 was absent of Prawn. Paneer dish absent of Paneer. With so many nice restaurants near by why would you try to short change your customer ? They will never be back.
Staff never asked how our food was. Never asked if we wanted any more drinks, infact ignored the once food was given. This owner has been running Merlins for 17 years. You would think they would know how NOT to run a restaurant wouldn't you?

Fantastic! My husband wanted something that wasn't on the menu, they had no problem making him exactly what he wanted. My dhansak was possibly the best I've ever had.

We felt as though the staff couldn't do enough for us. The service was fantastic.

When we got the bill we were both pleasantly surprised. We had popadoms, a starter, a main, I had 2 drinks and my husband had 1. The bill was just over £40.

Absolutely fantastic.

Although indian food isn't my first choice, the food here is delicious. The staff are more than accommodating, especially Belal, one of the owners sons... A cheeky, happy chappy! The atmosphere is excellent and it's great value for money. (It's one of my husbands favourites).
