“Good service, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

The welcoming staff were keen but patient as we waited for a tardy member of our group. The service was fast and the food well prepared and tasty. There are no cask beers, only draught Carlsberg and Kingfisher at much higher than pub prices. We had poppadoms and mains, no starters or desserts so cannot comment on them.

“excellent minus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

The positives: four of us had mains yesterday and the food was really excellent. With our mains, only ordering a single rice, naan and paratha was enough. Two had the rice puddings at the end which were tasty but would have been better hot.

And why not an excellent ? Simple: the front of house who was not friendly and also seemed disinterested in whether we had booked or not and whose understanding of English seemed pretty limited. The waiting staff were efficient but not friendly.

I would certainly go again as the kitchen produced such good food.

“Value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

The buffet is really nice and they have large variety of food for every taste but there is no dessert in the buffet and you should order it separately.
