My partner and I visit the Bollywood masala tonight (28/10/2013) redeeming a groupon voucher.
The staff were pleasant enough but we're not very attentive. It wasn't particularly busy but we waited over 10 minutes for a drink, pappadoms and menus, a further 20 minutes to order and then the starter and mains a good 30 minutes between. Waiters no where to be seen, plates and dishes etc from started left on table until mains arrived, no offer of drinks.
The food itself wasn't of good quality. I ordered lamb chops which came cremated and with minimal meat. My partner had some form of chicken dumplings which she said were just ok.
After a lengthy wait the mains arrived, I had ordered a prawn and chicken curry ( I don't remember the name it was a special) and my partner a mixed biryiani. The meat appeared to be small cubes of formed chicken and the prawns were the tiniest shrimp you could find- and we're quite sparse. Although I had asked the waiter to make it hot - not incredibly but just a kick- it had nothing and I'm not a spice addict, it was just not hot at all. It tasted bland and I got fed up as it was basically cold rice and sauce. My partners biryiani lacked the usual egg/omelette and had very little sauce, again very little meat.
We did not eat very much of it so the manager discused with us our unhappiness. Despite being on a groupon they still wanted ��22 I'm addition! We had 2 cokes and some pappadoms!! After much debate I agreed to pay them ��13 but i walked out confused as to what that was actually for...
Avoid it even if you have a voucher, treat yourself to a jar of Grossman from tesco instead.
