“Never again”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

I must first point out this is for delivery! Turned up after 1 1/2hrs, after calling for updates was answered by different people who kept promising it would be there. We have used this restaurant for many years and was o.k until about a year ago we had a bad delivery, we gave it another go and our order was taken, then when it was late I rang and was told that they had no delivery driver! So left it a good 6 months and thought o.k one last try but wish we had'nt . We will never be using this restaurant again.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Didn't expect much for a Tuesday night out. Had tried to book Himalaya, but discovered they closed on Tuesdays. My husband wasn't keen, but persuaded him to try Mirch Masala and very glad we did. The staff were lovely and attentive, the food was excellent - well presented, hot and very tasty. The weather that night was atrocious, so I was glad to see quite a few other diners in - showing it's popularity. The price was very reasonable for the quality and we were offered complimentary drinks at the end of the evening. Highly recommended.

“A lovely night out thank you”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

The food was very good and the chardonnay was particularly nice. The staff were pleasant and attentive. The plates were hot and we finished off all the dishes which says how much we enjoyed it. The complimentary drink was a nice surprise. I would recommend this place and will definitely go again.

“Not good”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

We booked to go new years eve, tried to get in the Himalayan,but they were full.We arrived on time,but took over an hour to get our starter,My partner was not happy.Clearly they didn't have enough staff to accommodate the amount of people,several complained.The other problem was they were cooking for people collecting takeaways,which seemed to get priority before the people who were sat down .After 2 hours I was glad to go home.The food was ok,although fairly cold.as was the restaurant,had to keep putting my coat on.
