This place runs on total chaos. Arrived at our table last night for 7.30pm but didn't actually eat the meal until about 9.15pm despite staff saying "five minutes". One member of staff we tried to speak with couldn't speak English and ran off to find...More

The only good thing here is a very acceptable Onion Bhaji. Everything else was poor or terrible. The service cannot be described as such and I would have scored it zero or minus if possible. You need to waste at least two and a half...More

Food is good, service is terrible. I have eaten here probably about 6-7 times including takeaways. The food is always good, but the enjoyment is taken away by the poor service. The wait can be frustrating and upon asking for updates they seem to be...More

Went on recommendation. It was an interesting evening to say the least. We arrived at 8pm, we'd booked a table. We had to ask to be served drinks at around 8.15. The poor girl was running around like a headless chicken whilst her parents hid...More

Great location for those living in Drayton/Farlington. Food good but so disappointed with the service. We arrived waiting to be seated and we're not even acknowledged by the staff. We had to stop a waitress who just said 'I'll come back when I've taken this...More

Having sworn never to return, I succumbed to peer group pressure and made a return visit. It has to be said that there are a number of things that this restaurant does amazingly well. Firstly, they deliver the same slow service, not matter how many...More
