    Really enjoyed the food however the service was poor. The restaurant was fairly empty but they didn’t seem interested. I’d still recommend for the food alone.

    The staff was pretty awful. 4 ate while one had to wait for the correct meal. We were charged for 6 mains of course. We ordered wine and by the time our wine arrived the main course had been eaten.my husband ordered a beer the wrong beer arrived and when this was pointed out he was called a liar. My white wine was served to our friend that prefers red wine. I had a chocolate pudding, half way through I popped to the ladies. Wish I had not, I could not eat the rest of my dessert. When I quietly had a word, later on I was also called a liar. The food was so so the service was very very bad. In my books Burger King would of been a better option all round. Brought us water so that’s a plus.

    It was ok, not great. We have just returned from India so are judging food by domestic standards. The best description was “nice”. Not “wow”, not “meh.” Reasonably tasty but sauces odd consistency and rather bland and chicken not cooked properly. The highlight however was the kulfi which was very tasty. Comments on tripadvisor about slow service seem odd as we felt rather rushed and had to deliberately slow the service down by taking time with choices, service polite but rushed. £100++ bill for an underwhelming experience. Nice but not great and hence poor VFM.
