“Excellent food and Service..Highly recommended”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

This is my first review I wanted to write for a restaurant in UK. I recently organised a party to celebrate my daughter's 1st birthday and I was looking for a restaurant to supply food for the party at Swindon, Wiltshire . I spent some quality time looking for authentic south Indian restaurants across London, Reading and Bristol. After consulting with many friends, reading many reviews and having sample tasting done by myself, I finally decided to go with "Aachi Restaurant", wembley. Right from the beginning, I was very impressed with the level of flexibility they showed in choosing the menu for the party and reasonable pricing. They are well organised on follow ups and reminders up to the day of party. On the day of party, 2 of them arrived on time with the food. They brought their own chaffing dishes which looked very neat. Once they were given their space, they arranged the food area nicely. To say it simple, they knew exactly what they were doing. Above all, food was excellent, Fresh and warm. Every single guest didn't miss to mention about the food. All the dishes were second to none. The Service of food was excellent and was praised by the guests. We all enjoyed the food. It was really authentic South Indian taste which was more than I expected. After cleanup was superb. They didn't leave any trace of the food remaining in the party area. Overall, I was very happy with the food and the service. I would highly recommended Aachi restaurant if you are looking for authentic south Indian taste.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Had a chance to visit wembley after some time with some friends and visited the place after receiving positive feed backs from my friends.One can say that Aachi's food is the best out there when compared to other places in wembley when it comes to authenticity.

I ordered the chicken biriyani for myself and my friends ordered Aathu Varutha curry,mutton omelette,liver fry and meen kolombu and we all shared the food amongst ourselves and it was Bliss.I myself am from Karaikudi and i can vouch for the taste of the food.This is one of the best meals i have ever had and only comes second to my mothers cooking(She's been cooking for the past 45 years).

Even though the restaurant was busy,The manager took good care of us and was always smiling.One draw back was that there was no alcohol being served and we were told that they have applied for a bar licence and its only a matter of time before they can start serving Alcohol.
A chilled kingfisher would have been an excellent addition to the meal.

We really enjoyed our vist and can say that we will be coming back for more in the near future.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Partially disappointed with the food and quantity. Heard so much about this place from online reviews that I HAD to try it out. Entered an empty restaurant manned by a single person. All available food was already prepared (so typical takeaway place). Ordered chicken biryani and chilli chcken. Biryani was good but the chilli chicken was poor in taste (too much of tomato ketchup used ) and the quantity was laugh-worthy. Barely 2 small pieces of chicken with lots of chunks of onions packed in the smallest plastic container that other equivalent Indian restaurants use to give raitha and side gravy in. Never going there again. Can get similar biryani elsewhere too. Still wondering why this place is being praised so much.
