Compared to Abercorn around the corner this place was heaven.
We had a group for 14-16 and 5 toddlers. Drank and eat very very well, the food was pretty good for the money. We forgot to pre-order some of the leg of lamb and chicken which would have been nice. The dal was great. Service was fantastic (though they were not so busy on a Sunday). The bill came to £281 for the lot including alcohol, non alcohol, desserts and starters. We all eat till we were full. This also included childern's desserts. The food was varied.
Overall a lovely well run place with exteremely polite and fast waiters.
Small drawbacks ;
The tikka paneer was not so good. The plates and glasses should be cleaned a little better.
I rarely give anywhere this many stars, this place wasn't that good, sure you walk in it's busy, everyone's chatting, it's loud. I don't mind that at all. We got shown to our seats, well more told, choose there. I didn't find the staff very good, we were harassed to order every 10 minutes, and they did this for the reason (That was rudely explained) "The kitchen closes in 30 minutes". We ordered poppadoms, the waiter came back and said they only had mini poppadoms. They came, they looked like crisps that had been bought from a cash and carry, just 5 minutes ago. My friend has a saying when it comes to indian food, the poppadoms really set the mood for the night, they failed, horribly.
This place honestly was a let down for food. It came to £13.58 for 3 beers and 2 baskets of "crisps".
If you want Indian, theres an amazing Indian, only 2 minutes down the road, right next to Lava Lanes.
Have visited a handful of times and have made an active decision not to visit again. The service at the bar is appalling, the service at the table is not much better. The staff behind the bar have the idea that they're akin to Tom Cruise in Cocktail but haven't got a clue. They serve customers who wave money in their faces who leave across 2 or 3 layers of people already waiting and it's not uncommon to have to wait 30-45 minutes just to get served. Mostly full of 20 - 50 year olds trying to pick up a date.
They allow in a ridiculous number of customers, surely it's a health and safety hazard. The food is of very average quality. The atmosphere is good, music is fine, door staff are, at least, polite and professional. Far more appealing venues to go within a few miles radius of the place.
Came here a few hours after stepping off the plane
The Mogo was exceptionally good and the passion fruit juice had a hint of salt. Pleasantly surprising
Potato Bhajiyas were a bust though. A soggy mess
I have to say this is one of my favourite Indian Resturants. The food is amazing, i would particular go for the starters as they are mouth wateringly delicious, you can choose from a selection of veg and non veg!
The ambience of the resturant is nice and relaxing and its a nice place to eat or simply to go and have a few drinks.
Amazing food!!! Everything i've had on the menu has been just delicious and I do not usually like spicy food.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a nice filing meal.
Inside is nicely decorated but I find the tables too small especially when going with a group of people each ordering starters, mains, drinks and sides.
Price is standard for Indian food but the worth the quality of food.
I've been here a number of times and all occasions have a been great.
Good food, music is ok.. not sure about the door men, dont think that's needed really and ordering a drink at the bar is a like a challenge off Gladiators.
Good place to eat, they have a selection of veg and non veg, service is a little slow, but then again it gets very busy all the time as is always packed. Food tastes good and is reasonably priced, the decor is good, good night out all around. Takes some time to get served at the bar, but music is good.
