“Value for money but poor service”
Review of Cuckoos

Cuckoos

Reviewed October 17, 2013

Have eaten in here several times. The waiters seem to attend to their friends before they deal with non-Asian people. I do not want to sound racist (because I am not) but white people can be invisible to waiting staff.

The food is fantastic though. Excellent value for money. I just wish that customer service was improved

Nice hybrid cafe/restaurant pretending to be a restaurant ....it's food is good and great value. But the service is terrible, unprofessional and generally comes across as seriously unorganised almost in chaos..

The restaurant is ok in summer but freezing in winter...avoid! The parking is on the road and busy times can be hard to find......it's a real shame myself and family like the food and price but hate the service which get orders wrong and how long it takes to get the food.......it has potential.

The food here is super fresh and made in front of you, eaten many times and impressed by the quality of the food. I suppose the meat should be fresh as the same owners own the large food cash and carry next door.
Authentic Pakistani food which is awesome. Best one in the local area as can be seen by the large numbers of local Asians who eat here as they rate the food too... Always an excellent sign if local Asians eat at a take away instead of eating at home that's the best guarantee for me . When abroad I also eat were the locals eat not tourists do the same. In the UK and you won't go wrong. I usually avoid so called Indians that are only frequented by drunken Friday night groups as they will eat anything. This place is full during the day and night and not a drunk in sight just fill who want to eat proper food. Go once you won't be dissapointed. If it's busy downstairs go upstairs and they will come to you. This place is how a curry should be not like my previous experience in Wigan which was hell !

The food here is absolutely fantastic.

Authentic Pakistani cuisine.

Great for takeout's but does work well as a restaurant and is usually busy.

The staff don't speak great English (depending on the day you go) and could do with some customer service training however timing and food quality make up for that.

Average prices.
