2nd visit this year and regret it. Service extremely poor and diners were spectators to all the takeaway customers. Waited 20 mins to pay!! By the way I am not a restaurant owner as their website suggest that all bad reviews are written by their competitors - listen to the many customers about your poor service and take action

Food was always very good, but service always poor. Unfortunately the service is still way too slow and now the food is only average. Annoying too when after half an hour you ask where your drinks are and the response is "are you sure you ordered them?" Yes, pretty sure I remember doing that, and a pretty rude question. Won't be going back any time soon.

Not enough staff waiter was rushed off of his feet waited 20 mins for a drink and asked 3 times for our order to be taken the food finally arrived 2 hours after we walked in one of the meals chicken tikka was dry it was inedible the rice order was wrong. There explanation was they were busy the front end of the restaurant resembled a doctors waiting room with people waiting for take away orders. Surly it would make sense to advise customers of long delays or stop taking take away orders. This is a good restaurant but standards are slipping.
