If like me, you like your Indian food served well and with none of that over-coloured food nonsense, Devdas falls in to the category of one of those decent Indian restaurants you must try.
Eating in, Devdas is nicely decorated, especially when compared to some of the other establishments in the area. It also serves some interesting dishes with a twist. I like the Bengali fishcakes.
We mainly use the Devdas takeaway service though (as we have young children). Most times, the food is just as good as you would get in the restaurant and a reasonable price. Although not the cheapest, it's worth paying a bit extra to get quality.
I like my curries with a bit of flavour and the hotter dishes, such as Madras and Vindaloo are always of a consistent strength. I judge this as a sign of a restaurant who knows what they're doing in the kitchen.
They have some excellent vegetarian dishes too. My wife is always happy that she doesn't have to compromise on choice if we use Devdas.
Hmmm, just writing this is making me feel like a takeaway tonight.
Food was pritty awful when I went in July 2011, both me and partner felt ill for the next few days, food tasted very odd.
I used to live very close to devdas and went there regularly, I always liked the food, some of their dishes korma and paneer have always been excellent. portion sizes good, nice menu with good specials and good veggie options. They do get very busy and the staff rush about but we have always found the service good.
Since moving we have had a few takeaways from there and they have been a bit hit and miss so will stick to going to the restaurant.
I've been eating Indian food for 50 years. Last night, the cooking at Devdas was very good - but the service was appalling. From the moment that they didn't listen to the simple drinks order, to the 'Order-Taker' not being familiar with the menu, waiting more than 1/2 an hour for our food, which came, following a standup complaint to 'the manager', and was not hot - obviously had been sitting, waiting in the kitchen to be served to us. They comp'd the Desserts, as they should. But what a waste! I think they should charge more and pay for good Waiting-staff!
