“Rubbish”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

Ordered a takeaway for collection. It wasn't ready when they said it would be and we had to wait in the restaurant for fifteen minutes. There was no one in the restaurant so don't know what the hold up was ???? The food was terrible and the veg curry tasted like burnt butter!! Never again prefer the dalchini in Alnwick

“Average curry and needs better service, plus turn the heating on !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012 via mobile

Turned up about 6:30pm, service was sow, food was ok but not great. The staff seemed uninterested, and quite surly. The place was quite cold and the made no effort to het the place up. Won't be going back in a hurry, prefer Dalchini or Varanda in Alnwick.
