“Amazed by Bad Reviews”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

I must come to the defence of Gaylord's. We have never been let down and have always found it to be excellent. Indeed, we rate other Indian Restaurants by the standards of Gaylord's. However, we normally have a take away but it is still cooked by the same people. We will be moving from the area in the early New Year and will miss Gaylord's no end.

“Give it a miss!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We thought we would try the Sunday buffet to compare it to a close rival in Twyford, what a mistake! The starters had obviously been sitting for a while,the onion bagees were like rocks,
a very small selection of main dishes, which were of an ok quality and the service very poor.
Having asked for a second round of drinks from waiters who were not very busy, we got fed up waiting and left. Even when paying the bill it seemed to be a problem for a not very interested member of staff. We won't be back, definitely not worth it.

“Not a bad all you can eat buffet”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We went in here because it accepted the Tastecard however we ended up having the All you can eat Sunday buffet instead (£6.95) This was decent value. The selection was quite small but all the dishes available were very tasty. I ate my fill and was quite satisfied. We both enjoyed it and i wouldn't mind returning to try the A La Carte menu.

“Nice night out”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We had a nice meal at this restaurant after a busy week. The service was good and the staff were very friendly. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived, but it soon became busy. Worth another visit.

“Worst meal of my life!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

I am not sure what this place is usually like but I won't be returning to find out. We waited over 2 hours for our food, had to chase it twice and then when it started to arrive with no apology it took over 15 minutes for the dishes to come out, side dishes first. We were so hungry we ate out side dish before any other dishes arrived! We had to chase again for missing items and the drinks we ordered never arrive. Then to top the night off my vegetarian main course (panner shashlick) contain a really manky bit of chicken!! We asked them to take the food away, still no apology and they didn't even offer an alternative. By this time we had no appetite. On a plus they only charged us for our drinks and we got a brief 'sorry' as we left. I will definitely be avoiding this place!!
