“Very disappointing”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

We went to this restaurant last night in a party of over 20. I should start by saying we had eaten here on a number of occasions before (Sunday buffet and takeaways) and have never had a problem. We have always had good service and our children love it. However, last night was another story. We had pre-ordered but were not told until the night that we had all ordered from the wrong menu- had we had a phone call about it, we could have sorted it. We had ordered from the on-line menu which is out of date by all accounts. Consequently, some of the meals were a little different and we soon found out that things that had been included on the menu we ordered from were now considered to be 'extras'- and paid for extra!. The starters came out with not too many problems- don't want to be too critical. The main courses however, came out very slowly with some having finished eating before others got their food. One main meal- fish bassa, had to be sent back because the fish was raw, and surprisingly the plate was simply removed from the table with no apology or acknowledgement. It was not paid for, but that's not really the point. Other food was 'patchy' to say the least- super salty mixed grill, bland or over spiced other dishes, no rice with some mains although it had been ordered, cold, tasteless, or even raw!Two of our party had ordered the same main course, although each dish was different. We got the feeling that the staff were quite stressed that evening, and we felt quite sorry for the young waiter. It can't be easy when things are obviously going wrong. Anyway, what I would say is not be be put off, but bear in mind that for some reason at the moment this may not be the best place for eating in a party

“Awful experience-left hungry & disappointed”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

We were a group of 20- sober and well behaved.
Well where can I start
The cobra was flat- probably watered down. The service was very slow even though we were the only big group there. The manager said that 1/2 staff hadn't turned in. This was hardly surprising as the managers attitude was so bad to us
When the food did arrive it was nice though cold. Some didn't get their food for ages or the correct accompaniments so had eaten their curries before these arrived. Never before have I left an Indian restaurant hungry

“Will go again”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

What a delight to have good and attentive service that was not intrusive and the food was excellent and well served/presented, Nice little touches like the hot towel at the end of dining and the complimentary drink to finish off. It was not busy but the atmosphere was amiable

“Why havent we been here before.”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Visited after going to the rugby early on a saturday evening. Consensus between five blokes was that the food and service was excellant. Popadoms and bahjis were light and not sodden with fat, the various main courses were all good and there was even enough rice (my usual gripe against tight-fisted restauarant owners).

Admiittedly there was only one other party in but service was highly attentive.

I personally hadnt been since the clockhouse days and hadnt realised what I had been missing. Maybe there is hope for Tandooris in North wales.
