We arrived without reservations. The owner greeted us and was very pleasant. A waiter arrived with the starter, and there was no choice. He disappeared and we did not see him again. The owner returned to take us into another room where all the buffet dishes were set out on heated pans. He told us what was in each dish which was very confusing by the end of the introduction. Then we discovered the ingredients were written above the dishes!! Several vegetarian dishes, and the chicken dishes looked similar and rather sloppy. The only restaurant in which i have eaten my desert with the main course dirty plates left on the table. Deserts were very uninspiring and the main vegetable dishes all tasted rather similar.
The owner reappeared to take the money for the bill, and then disappeared again as we left the restaurant without anyone showing us out.
I suspect they are resting on their laurels of a previous win of best curry of the year. 2016. he needs more waiting staff.
