Visited on a Saturday night having pre booked a table. Despite the fact that the restaurant was not full, the standard of service was abysmal. We were shown to a table very quickly and then ignored. we eventually collared a passing waiter and asked for some menus.These were then provided quickly but it was again an age before someone came to take our order and when we eventually did get food we did not have enough cutlery and again had difficulty attracting attention.
There does not seem to be anyone in charge of front of house keeping an eye on tables and ensuring that customers are looked after and although the staff are all very pleasant and friendly they could do with some lessons in customer care.
Now for the food. Despite all the rave reviews for the Samosas, I have to say that although they were perfectly acceptable, I have had better elsewhere. My dining companions enjoyed their starters and main courses and my balti chicken jalfrezi was excellent.So, the food has scored "very good"
However, there is no excuse for indifferent or poor service anywhere and particularly in the restaurant business where there is so much choice available.
Will I be going back? A resounding NO!

I visit the sweet center frequently but stay away from the curries..
For me its got to be the samosas and kebabs and legendary mint sauce.. they are truly the best thing about this place and what its reputation UK wide for the last 50 odd years is/was built on.
A couple of samosas and kebabs with mint sauce is all you would require from this establishment to know you've been treated to something special.
NO ONE in the world makes kebabs and samosas like these folk!

We went as a party of 6 with an Australian friend to show her what an old Bradford curry restaurant was lie. We found the whole experience average
The food was average

The menu selection average (a tad dated)

The service just about average

The ambiance average

The price average.

It would improve with a deep clean (The carpet has seen better days) and glasses and plates which weren’t chipped and a waiter who could remember to bring us cutelry.

On the plus side the mixed starter was very nice and the fish masala lovely.
The papadoms were crisp with a nice taste. The Chicken Madras was hot and tasty.
The Chicken Korma was made with condensed milk and tasted a little odd to a Western palate
All in all a three star experience- there are a lot better Curry restaurants on Bradford - I am surprised it comes so high in the Trip Advisor “Top restaurants ” in Bradford list.

Breakfast desi style is nice but a bit oily. Needs to be changed. But otherwise recommended. Tea is nice.

If you want authentic and traditional Asian cuisine then this is the place. An excellent tasty curry with a good selection to choose from. The service is second to non and nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff. We are regular visitors and enjoy it every time.
Brilliant!
