Recent Visit 9/11/12 I hadn't realised it had been so long. I have had to knock off a star since my last visit. Number of people 4 adults, and two children. They did accommodate half portions for the children. This was a combined treat for my wife, and my children had never been before. They have won an award, but I hear that with a lot of these awards they have to pay to enter. You'd have to investigate to see how good that award isas a Muslin friend ignores any of these My wife said that they appeared to be resting on their laurels and relying upon their past reputation. I guess we won't be returning. What is wrong now: 1. The size of the meat with the dishes is small. None of us were impressed with the main courses. 2. Asked for lime pickle, and had to ask again, because it wan't brought to the table. 3. I asked for red and green peppers to be added to my dish; they forgot. 4. As it was my wife's birthday, I asked for them to put a bottle of champagne on ice. This wasn't done, and was served at the wrong temperature. In fact the wine was served colder than the champagne. 5. They weren't very attentive, and didn't notice that we need more drinks, I had to keep calling them over. The good: I and my two children orderd the garlic mussles, they were very nice. Others enjoyed their starters. The decor is very good, and really llooks fresh.Previous Visit Dec 2008
Yes, very good cuisine, a varied selection. The noise of the place lets it down a bit. I don't think I have done full justice here. Although I know the original owners have sold the place. Nevertheless, what I liked was the variety of the menu. I tend to have the following main course, words from their website: KARAHI MAHARAJA A north Indian household favourite, diced chicken pieces curried in thick but smooth gravy,
cooked on the spicy side with onions, paprika and coriander. Served on a cast iron wok,
a dish that has stood the taste of time. Really tasty, a place offering something different, by the way of flavours.
0% RATING!! really upset with rilys.com ! Myself and my partner had arranged the mothering in law to look after our 3 week old bay daughter for a sleep over as we wanted a night in together witha drink as we didnt have an easy labour. Anyway, we ordered from rileys our takeaway and spent £31 for both of us which is not cheap!
Anyway not going to write a novel, the fact is that food arrived luke warm!! We had to microwave to make it satisafactory!!!!!!! I rang and complained and was ofered £10 voucher for the £31 we spent!?? Sounds like a real compensation!
I said forget it i want my money back to which they said ok and would pick the food up, so now its its 20:30 at night, no food, night off from baby and awful experience!
They did offer to cook fresh which would mean waiting another 45 mins!! NO NO NO! rilys.com never again!!!!!!!!!!
Im so angry im telling the world and uploading this to evrey review site i can as our night was meant to be special and we are both hungry and now re order from somewhere else!
Rileys is a fairly new (opened in about 2007) indian cusine restaurant in the town centre in redditch. It is pretty much opposite the town hall, you can park at the back of the gym, opposite the new college. The restaurant is very modern and the table and the decor of the place reflect this - very nice and great for a night out with friends and/or partner/ girlfriend/boyfriend. Not expensive, but not cheap, in between. If you like indian, then give it a try.
