As always the Qismat didn't let us down. The food here is always lovely and more importantly the food tastes fresh. I had a Lamb murgh-ta and my wife had the tandoori mixed grill. Special attention here to the naan bread you get here. You can see its is fresh from the tandoor oven with that lovely charcoal flavour. The... More

Great service even though we arrived late evening. Menu was very extensive. Some items we ordered were excellent, others not so much.

Popped in for something to eat before going to the cinema. Staff very attentive and well mannered. Timings between courses was relaxed. Plenty of time to enjoy each course. Food tasty and plentiful.

Such a variety of dishes to choose from and all are very tasty. They have something for every taste bud. Currie's are delicious, nan breads are massive and full of flavour. Highly recommend the buffet.

60th birthday party celebration. Very attentive staff even though very busy. Good food though chicken a little dry as hastily prepared meal, tried other people's food in party, good but my Korma was very pale in colour and not a strong flavour, I think if it hadn't been so busy the korma would have been different, will go back though.

Fantastic lunch. My uncle and I always chose Indian food when we meet up.. We've been to very many over the last 30years. This was my first visit to Qismat at my uncle's in distance as he'd been there previously. I wasn't disappointed. Great friendly service and top drawer food which I felt was very well priced. When I'm back... More

Something most restaurants are lacking. We will be back and... More

My husband and I visited the Qismat for dinner and it was excellent. They were very knowledgeable and helpful regarding my gluten intolerance and were able to help me choose a delicious gluten free meal. Lovely, clean restaurant and very welcoming. Would recommend it for anyone with food intolerances/allergies.
