“Fantastic food”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic meal on a Saturday night. It was one of the best Indian meals we've had. Don't be put off by the other reviews on here. The place was packed - people were being turned away, both floors had every table used.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Although the quality of food was reasonable, the meal was spoiled by poor service and exceptionally rude waiters. The staff were snappy and demanding, and did not attempt to hide frustration when: a) we needed a few more minutes to choose food, b) we wanted to pay be card. The bill arrived with a recommended service charge of £4.50. Given our frustrations with the staff, we decided to leave only £3. In response the waiter demanded we tip another £1.50, even though we were unhappy with service. Apparently, "by sitting at the table, customers agree to pay the full service charge".

Reviewed 4 April 2014

If you wish to go to a indian restaurant in Cambridge, don't choose this one. No menu is offered and waiters are not kind with guests.

“There are much better Indian restaurants in town”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

We visited with friends, some of us had really tasteless dinner, all onion bhajis were poor (looked like re-heated), and the service was rather poor too.

“Attitude with a grunt!!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

After adopting this curry house as our local we had accepted the brash nature of the waiters and the mediocre/ barely acceptable food as a long standing joke, but after tonight's service I can safely say I will never be visiting again!! We arrived to a table with no place settings only to have the cutlery thrown in front of us. After several unpleasant looks from the staff our food arrived. Again in the same manor as the cutlery. The food as usual mediocre but the company made up for it. Once the plates were cleared the bill arrived. As it is customary to offer a tip, and judged on the service received we opted to reduce the discretionary fee, only to be accosted by the waiter who became abusive. After arguing that we felt that the tip was not deserved we were pressured into paying and hurried out and off our table before finishing our drinks. I would not advise ever eating at this establishment not that it can be called one!! Rudest waiters I've ever had the misfortune of meeting.
