“Service off putting.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

This was one of the poorer Indian restaurants I've eaten in. The chicken patia didn't taste like the usual I've come to expect from other restaurants and the portions were very small, particularly the rice. But.. What really put me off was the over attentive waiters who lacked any personality. On a quiet night for the restaurant we were given hardly any time to choose from the menu. We sent him away but weirdly he returned almost immediately and we had to send him away again. It was the same when it came to clearing the table - a different waiter seemed to eager to take away our plates when we hadn't finished.

“Best Indian meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

On holiday in area, found resteraunt when exploring town. Early bird menu ten pounds for two courses was excellent. Food very good quality, nicely presented. Mark our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. This was the best Indian meal that we have had in a long time.

“Flies waiting to light on your table”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

The food is good the price is good the drinks are good the staff are very friendly. But it's manic! Feels very stressed. There are waiters everywhere. Watching your every move. It also takes a very long time. For so many staff it really should be quicker!! Manic!!

“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We decided to go here on recommendations from a few people for an Indian the night after our wedding. We booked a table for 18 people of family and friends for a Sunday evening, and it appeared that they were not prepared nor capable to handle a large party. First we ordered cocktails from the waiter downstairs, we were then seated upstairs at a table that was not set, nor had any glasses or anything laid out on it. Poppadoms were then brought out to us, and after 10 mins we had to ask for jugs of water as no one had come for a drinks order and there were still no glasses on our table for water. The cocktails we ordered from the bar downstairs arrived about half an hour later, after asking twice for them, and even when they arrived they were terrible. We asked for a wine menu - this never arrived until we asked again. When we ordered wine they brought the wrong bottle. There were about 10 different staff members waiting on us, so even when it came to re-asking staff for what we had ordered, we didn't even know who it was we had asked! The staff didn't know how to take orders from a large table at all. When the food eventually arrived it was actually quite tasty, so I'll give them that! Don't think I'll be going back here in a hurry though!
