We had a great "Christmas" meal. Super food as ever. Nothing was too much trouble and it was easy for us to pay separately.

Visited the empress of India with 10 colleagues on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was busy and the service was a little slow however the food was really nice and tasty. I had the chicken chilli masala equivalent which was recommended by the waiter. Really nice and tasty meal If I'm in the area again I would visit again.

We had booked a table for 8pm. However they were very busy and we had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Fortunately we were seated at the top of the restaurant for which we were very grateful as the bottom half of the restaurant was full with mostly young men who were continually shouting, climbing over chairs and tables....
