Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Lovely food never had a bad meal, not the friendliest staff but always polite, Sweet of the day that comes with the more exsensive deals is always ice cream :-( asked about this as the cheap advitses ice cream and told its always just ice cream (confused why the menu says sweet of the day)

“Nice Food”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

My family and I always come to this place. First reason is the reasonable price when you order in their deal menu. They also have many choices for the food. Staffs are friendly.They have clean toilet .

“Can't believe this restaurant isn't further up the list!”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

One of the very best around, takeaway isn't always up to the same standard as sitting in, but where is these days?

We have been going to Indian essence for years, often try other places but always end up going back. The food is delicious, the service is outstanding... Most of all the make a fuss of the children, a nice, kind caring touch that goes a very long way! Children love treats out and they love this Indian restaurant too! I've never have a bad meal and try all different dishes, it's definitely worth a visit, I recommend it to everyone!

“Customer service”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Ordered meal got half eaten pompodoms delivered. Rang up to query and got a lot of attitude off the manager and got told not to call back again. Also had sit down meal there in the past and service wasn't good. Wouldn't go back anyway there are plenty more Indian restaurants that would appreciate our business.
