We arrived early to an empty restaurant. Ushered to the window Table. It was quite chilly because they had the air con blowing cold air...on a chilly November evening! The waiters were friendly and professional enough. We ordered shared starters which were quite nice. Portions were plenty along with the poppodums we ordered...the mains followed shortly after clearing the starters... More

8 friends and I had a table booked for 7pm on a Wednesday evening so we rocked up at the agreed time and were greeted warmly before being seated on a large table in the corner of the restaurant. Unfortunately, the warm welcome was the best thing we received as things went downhill very fast from there on in. We... More

I know they have just added amounts on the bill before so we asked for a proper bill listing the drinks for the... More

Banquet night and 1 person didn't eat meat so we asked for a starter as a main course. This person was told they cannot do that and MUST have the banquet if everyone else is (although banquets split rice / naan between 2 and there were 9 of us - maths anyone?) Eventually the staff agreed that she doesn't have... More

Dropped in on a busy Saturday night without booking. Fortunately they had a table for 2 as we'd both worked up an appetite and the smell was very inviting. For me, on this visit, the food was absolutely delicious and the service excellent. We're looking forward to going again soon.

I don't bother asking her anymore, we just head off to Tamarind for our curry fix. The fact the place is permanently busy must be testament to them getting it right. Really friendly professional staff and excellent at guiding you through the different dishes if you're indecisive like me. Very reasonably priced for such outstanding food too, must book our...

I enjoyed the food but £3.95 for a ginger ale and £2.50 for a soda and lime is excessive. Service was ok and place was clean. Waiters friendly.
