Come to this restaurant a couple of times a year...decided to come here off the cuff on this occasion. Arrived to find it extremely busy but had no intention of going elsewhere. Was directed to the waiting area & offered drinks whilst we waited no more than 5 mins for an available table. As always the food & service was excellent. The staff (especially the manager, I think) cannot do enough for you. They go above & beyond to make you feel comfortable. Always look forward to eating here!

Went here last night for an 18th birthday meal, 37 of us in total, and they looked after us really well. There's enough choice on the buffet, but if there is something else you want, just ask them they will make it for you. They have friendly staff, would definitely recommend and come here again.

We visited here on the review of a friend who recommended that we try here. We walked in to a super friendly greating and was taken to the bar while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. Once seated a table of 8 for a birthday party we was promptly served popadoms and drinks. The food was absolutely beautiful and such a selection including desserts and a cheese board...we were then given complimentary coffee...sweet tray and offered a free drink of our choice. As if that wasnt enough they had heard us sing happy birthday to my birthday and brought us over a free bottle of champagne!!! I have eaten in some fine restaurants in my time but this overall experience would take some beating. ..such attention to detail and excellent service and friendly staff... couldnt of asked for more made our night!!! Visit visit visit you will NOT be disappointed we LOVED it!!!!! Thanks guys!!!

Was recommended to go here by friends and decided on sunday 24th august to give it a go. Fantastic atmosphere and service. Restaurant was busy so we were guided to bar to order drinks and then as soon as a table was available we were seated. (we waited no more than 5mins). There was my husband, myself and two teenage daughters. We had the buffet menu and was help yourself to as much as you want. The food was hot, plenty of choice (mild and hot curries etc) desert with icecrean and was given complimentary tea/coffee sweets. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and will return and with a bill of just under £41.00 for all of us (with 4 bottles of coke) and extremely friendly staff that were courteous and not "pushy" as some restaurants can be was brilliant value for money. Thank you Jilabi.

Have been to Jilabi's several times now, both during the week and for their Sunday buffet and it has been excellent every time. They use good quality ingredients in their cooking and their Tandoori King Prawns have become my favourite. They have a high ratio of staff to customers, which contributes to making you feel very well looked after. Have eaten here as part of large group, as a couple, and on my own - and received the same friendly, smiling service each time.
