The restaurant wasn't very child friendly, didn't seem to want our toddler there. The food was ok although little meat in the curry.
The young female waitress approx 16-17 was very friendly and helpful. The whole experience was ruined by the male staff patting her continually on the backside and acting in an inappropriate manner toward her. When we had finished I decided that the young girl deserved a tip and told her to put it in her pocket as only she had deserved it, she pushed it back toward me and told me that all of their tips went to the owners. Disgusting behavior, I would not use this restaurant again in principle.

Me and my partner went to this restaurant to eat in. Previously in the day we had collected a leaflet from outside the restaurant so we could see what was on offer. Looking at the menu and the prices we decided that we would like to go back and eat there that evening.
On arrival we were greeted by a member of waiting staff leaning against the front door smoking a cigarette which did not seem very professional. Once we were inside a friendly member of staff showed us to our table in the corner of the room. We were the only ones in the restaurant.
After looking at the menu for a few minutes we noticed that the prices were at least £2 more expensive on the menu in the restaurant than they were on the leaflet we had picked up earlier that day. Also the 'all you can eat' option shown on the leaflet that is only available on Sundays and Mondays was not displayed in the restaurant.
As our waiter (The same man from outside the building when we first arrived) was on his way over to take our order, he had to turn back and walk to the bar as he was coughing. He coughed for a few minutes and then came over to take our order without going to wash his hands.
In the end we left this restaurant without eating.

We waited over an hour before we rang, asking where our delivery was. Two hours later still no food and still no answer! The phone is either engaged or just keeps ringing!

How disappointed we were on a recent visit....very poor service, quite rude and sullen at times. Main courses had plenty of sauce but little content.
Would not recommend.
