So we had a Saturday evening meal. The Mirch has cleaned up it's act following several complaints about cleanliness. The food was so tasty. Their onion bhajia's are the best. We ordered too many dishes again. Memorable was the chicken curry on the bone. We'll be back.

I love this place but the last curry I got was far too mild. I think when they see a white girl they instantly decide to make it less spicy. I spent my summer in India - if I order a hot curry give it to me please!

Been coming here for years and it's reasonably priced, nice food, friendly staff, always fairly busy, nothing fancy, bring your own alcohol. I have never had any complaints with the food and I can be fairly fussy! It's a little annoying that the card machine is always broken! Clean toilets so I assume clean kitchen! I will continue to come... More

My husband and I went here for dinner this evening on a recommendation from a friend. We were disappointed as it was ok, average, nothing special. The service was ok, not efficient or helpful just ok. The restaurant was clean. They do not accept cards so only cash and its bring your own alcohol. The food was hot but we... More

All I will say is that the choices for people with garlic allergies or people who follow the Jain lifestyle, there is not much choice, I had 4 choices: Mushroom bhajia, aloo bhajia, potato curry or aubergine curry. One particular waiter was rude; after I explicitly said I can't have garlic or chillies he said "you can either eat it... More

Ate here yesterday with my partner. First things first, the greasy atmosphere should of made us walk out. No customer service.. we brought out own drinks had to ask twice for glasses. No mango chutney. No jug of water on the table. The basket they brought the nan bread in looked filthy. I was hesitant to eat but was extremely... More

I won't guild the picture - this place is a bit rough round the edges, as you would expect. The service prioritises speed and efficiency over courtesy, the bogs are somewhat rudimentary, the dining area is more like a cafe or cantina than a restaurant - but come on! This is the real deal. The food is authentic, the portions... More

Place is about to close. Hardly any trade, cash only and Sky TV announced they hadn't paid their bill! Ordered a prawn dish and told 'we haven't any prawns'. Oh dear, the end of an era (10 years ago it was the best restaurant in the street ).

The food here is good however, the whole place is caked in a layer of grease and you get a whiff of public toilet as you enter the restaurant. The service is unfriendly and you are made to feel as if you are not really wanted there. The bathrooms are disgusting; there's no other word for it. When asked to... More
