“Fancy treat”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Delicious food, excellent service, a little pricey but worth it. Really excellent curry, maybe the best in Nottingham (although there's a few close competitors).

“You get what you pay for.”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Took the family out for a Christmas treat as the kids had returned from University and working away respectively - so 6 of us at a busy time of the year.

The table was ready for us on arrival and the service for our initial drinks was swift, whereas we were given plenty of time to peruse the menu, not rushed at all. Just the way it should be.

The ambience of the restaurant was classy with the tables well laid out and a real spacious feel to the place making you feel like you were dining alone and not encroaching on anyone else.

The food when it came was delicious with even my youngest daughter (a real fussy eater) tucking in and eating every last scrap.

True, it is expensive and not the sort of place you could dine out every week, but as a treat it was well worth paying that bit extra for the quality, not only of the food, but the whole experience.

Only slight downside to me was adding the 10% service charge to the bill - £18 in this case. I accept that it says that it is discretionary but you are not really going to say no. I much prefer to tip the individual waiter in cash as against it 'disappearing' on a bill.

Overall a fantastic night - thank you

“2 visits and both excellent!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

I firstly attended a networking event that was attended by over 100 people. The service for that many people in one sitting was fast and efficient, the first was beautifully cooked - the starter selection was just stunning in presentation and very high quality ingredients. The sharing disshes for the main course were plentiful and a great range with fish, chicken, lamb and vegetables.
the 2nd visit was with 2 lady friends for an early dinner, 3 days later. the quality of the food and service was the same and as a result my friends would definitely visit again. Highly recommended!!

“Fabulous food and service”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Went to a networking lunch for over 120 people. A real challenge to any restaurant but they handled it fantastically. The food was beautiful and the service impeccable.

“Good Indian Restaurant (with lot of awards)”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We went to the Memsaab to try Indian Food in Nottingham.. it's sure a very good place.. but has also a higher Price for the dishes...

For Indian cuisine it's a quite expensive one.. but as said Quality is very good...has also nice wine selection.

If you like Indian Food you will be happy....
