Went the other night for an Indian, service was very poor, we ordered starter and the chicken tikka was off!!! And set the tone for evening, only 1 person working all the tables??? They took our starter order first and we waited for 30 mins for that to come. Our main order ( which they took after we ate our starter???? Took another 30 mins??? Also very poor!!! Poor service, very poor food, will never go here again . Gutted I spent 50 pounds,

Due to the raving. I had to come here and think that average describes it perfectly. Not bad or disappointing, but nothing as special as all the reviews make out. Very pricey and slightly bland for a curry lover- will stick to the takeaway and not waste my money on somewhere average, with a miserable dining room- just use your own- there's no atmosphere here.

we ate here because of the rating on Trip Advisor, but it really isn't that good. The price is ok, at £9.95 for 4 courses (popadum, starter, main and rice or nan), but we only knew this because we saw it on the poster outside, and there is no mention in the menu, so we had to ask about it. We went at 7pm one evening and were the only folk there, apart from occasional takeaway orders being collected. The place does not look very inviting from the outside, maybe better in the dark when the lights are on and you can't see the surroundings! - inside there are a lot of small carpeted steps which can be a bit of a hazard - the carpet actually looks quite greasy and old unfortunately - the owner Omar is very chatty, almost too much, as we wanted to have a quiet conversation and he kept reappearing and joking with us, but I suppose that is better than being ignored - the food is ok but not outstanding - the Mauchak special curry was nothing special - the pasanda was more interesting, but all let down by very tough lamb (maybe we should have had the chicken?) - the nan bread was good - very limited choice of beers, and non on draught, but evidently you can take your own if you want - food is served in enormous oblong dishes which is awkward if you want to share dishes as we did - overall I think we'd rather go to the Blue Elephant just down the road where the surroundings and food is a bit better

Went to Mauchak’s as a group of 4. It was pleasantly busy for a Saturday night, and straight away we were greeted and made feel very welcome. We were shown directly to our table by the waiter, who was very friendly and attentive. The menu had an excellent choice; I didn’t know where to start! The food was quite simply exceptional. Poppadums’ arrived fresh and warm with nice selection of dips. Starters and mains arrived quickly, were decorated lovely and tasted amazing! The staff were very attentive and the service was excellent, our empty plates where cleared quickly and we were allowed to take our time. The atmosphere is very nice and cosy, the food is excellent and at a very reasonable price. I would recommend and will definitely be returning!!
