Being Indian I don't like going to Indian restaurants that often. Over the years I've been to Memsaab in Northampton on numerous occasions and was starting to get bored with their decor and the menu. Nothing seemed to change. Went in October with some friends who'd never been to Memsaab but wanted to give it a go. I was slightly... More

Had the restaurant recommended to us by a member of staff in the hotel we were staying in. From the moment we walked in we we're most impressed. The service was excellent throughout and the food was excellent. As visitors to the area we were made welcome by the staff members who showed genuine interest in where we were from.... More

Down from Lincolnshire, I think for the third or fourth time here with family that rate this curry house. Unfortunately it's not my cup of tea, hasn't changed much over last few years, visually or culinary wise. I had asked for what was supposed to be a medium Chicken Jalfrazi (which wasn't on menu) but found it very spicy &... More

Mem Saab used to be one of my favourites; however, after a few off times, I kind of went off it. Last week I went back for the first time in a while and, to be honest, I was taken aback by the look. The refurb looks awesome, and we were greeted with a very warm welcome! After getting some... More

Went here on an office night out. Started next door & were shown into the 'new' lounge. Didn't have long to wait till shown to our table. Nice booth opposite the bar. Food was prompt & nicely presented. All dishes were delicious. No complaints from anyone. Pleasant staff & great service. Was all so good I returned the following week!!

I took my family to dine at Memsaab. I must say that it was spacious and there were lots of staff around. However, I am not impressed. It was not Fine Dinning at all. All the dishes were oily and even the portions were too small. There were very pieces of lamb word with lots of thick sauce.

Visited on a Monday evening, booked a table but there was space available if I had not done so but booking advisable. Staff very friendly and seated in lounge area and offered drinks whilst deciding on choices. Good drinks menu, wine and cocktails including non alcoholic. Food was well presented and well cooked, menu choice was good with variety of... More

Maybe I'm spoilt, coming from Birmingham - so many great Indian restaurants. Venue itself looks good but on the night I visited it was cold and smelled of paint. Food lacked any flavour and was overpriced! Shall not be returning.

We went here at our nephew's choice for his birthday. What a lovely atmosphere, made more special by the jazz duo playing quietly in the background. A very stylish looking restaurant with modern decor. And the food? Very good. We had the Sunday buffet and the starters, mains and desserts were all excellent. Particularly try the chilli cod and the... More
