“You can make better at home!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

We used to be regulars but hadn't been for 6 months when we visited May 2013: we so wish we hadn't bothered. The food was horrendous! I had king prawns that had the texture and taste of old boots - clearly not freshly cooked and my husbands bhuna tasted like curry powder in bisto gravy. Really gone downhill unlike the prices which have gone up. Sadly we will not be visiting here again...

“overpriced, small portions”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

tried amraj after having driven past on a number of occasions. Very large restaurant was surprisingly quiet for a bank holiday weekend. Noted that the prices were on the higher side for an indian restaurant, so hoped that the quality was on the higher side too. Service was a bit slow despite not being busy. Starters were ok, if a little mean on portions. However the biggest disappointment was the average quality and meagre portions served up for the main course. Left feeling both disappointed and hungry. So many places to choose from these days, makes it hard to choose amraj again. Shame!

“Won't go back”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We have been to amraj several times, we have always found it not outstanding but ok , convenient location, and value for money, however on our previous visit we found that prices had increased dramatically ,and in this economic climate there are other places that are equally good and offer better value for money. When looking for somewhere to eat out this evening we looked on the internet and saw that amraj offered 2-4-1, it was only after we ordered that we were told this was not the case, when we said that it was on their website the waiter said that it was not his fault and that they did nt use the website,and that it was a management issue, although he was not willing to let us speak to management. I feel that we were lured there by an offer that was non existent , the food was average and overpriced, the toilets were dirty and I can honestly say that we will not be going back

“Average Only”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Have not been to this restaurant for a long time. I was very disappointed with the portion sizes (6 small pieces of chicken for £10.50) along with the cost for average food. Service was ok until the end, we were not asked if we wanted dessert and had to ask for the bill. The restaurant was not busy so expected much better. I will not return. Better quality and priced restaurants elsewhere.

“Average food, average service, above average price”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

We decided to go as a family and grab a late dinner after having had a busy sunday of activities, so dropped by Amraj (having eaten once or twice before)

Our thoughts were that whilst early evening, the service should be brisk as we didn’t expect it to be too busy. Whilst the visit set out OK, the service was virtually non-existent towards the end - with the staff seemingly more occupied with chatting and reconciling the till.

Food was OK to be fair, but not outstanding and given the 20 minute wait to try and catch the waiter's eye, we decided to skip desserts and pick something up e route back home. The final clincher was the £75 for 2 adults and a child, which was not reflected in the quality of food, the ambiance, or the service.

In summary, not terrible but not great either. Maybe picked a bad day, but probably won't try again...
