“Quality and class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Always a treat, and one we really look forward to. Spot on authentic food, nice portion size, dishes you'll struggle to find elsewhere, beautifully laid out and really great staff. A real touch of class in an unusual spot on the road to Skegness and next to a petrol station. Well worth seeking out and visiting regularly! My other favourite Indian restaurant is on the A1 at Sawtry next to a petrol station, maybe that's the key?

“Excellent food however don't order your take away to early”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

We are regulars of the Mach and have to say we have always been happy with it however we ordered a takeaway last week and it was not as good, we picked it up around 18.45 hours and the quality was not the same, it was I have to say as though they had used another pervious sauce from the night before and tried to turn it into something else, not good.

I must just add to the fact that we are noticing there portions are getting smaller, they nann bread for example has halved in size to what it used to be three weeks ago.

We will give this place one more go as it was our favourite place, however we will be hoping it goes back to its usual be restaurant.

I am sorry that you felt your takeaway was below par last night, had you called us we would have done everything we could have to put the situation right.

As for using sauces from the previous night and turning it into another curry is something I can assure you we do not do and if you ask anyone who works in an indian restaurant is virtually impossible. As a regular customer I am dissapointed that you think that.

All our food is cooked to order when it is ordered. I take food quality very seriously and high standards of food hygiene is given high priority in our restaurant, which is reflected in our 5 stars recieved from the council for food hygiene standards.

Also there has been no change in portion sizes and no one has ever mentioned that naans have halved in size, something like that would be very noticeable for all our customers.

I hope you do come back as you have been regular customer and any concerns and feedback you may have, please do not hesitate to discuss with me at the time.

Always an excellent place to eat. Service is brilliant. Food is fantastic! We've visited several times, as a couple and with a group of friends and have never been disappointed.

Have just managed to a visit again, which has now been twice in the last 3 weeks and as always NEVER leave feeling less than 100% satisfied.

I have six indian restaurants in Retford and there is NO WAY we would go anywhere else than MaCh, it is worth the 40 mile round trip.

The service is always exceptional and the lovely man who meets you and shows you to your table is INFACT very quiet and shy and not in your face, which is what we like. He is a really nice person with a great sense of humour once you get to know him.

All of the staff in the restaurant are extremely hard working and the owner makes sure everything is always as you requested. If your meal is not to your taste, I can assure he would be the first to put it right and make sure your evening went well,

I have never ever had a less than 100% meal here and we have been several times now with friends.

Looking forward to our next visit really soon, but not good for my diet!!!!

Thanks Mav and all the team for a fab night and as always, great to see you all.

“Wednesday Special!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

Have visited a number of times and never been disappointed. By chance visited on a Wednesday which was one of their special nights. Eat as much as you can for £14.50. Great opportunity to order different starters and mains and try new things. Expected it to be buffet style as these special nights often are but this was not the case. We had a lovely mixed starter (1 piece each of every starter) and 4 small main chicken dishes between the 2 of us as well as poppadoms, rice, naan etc. Good value and good service. Will continue to visit and would recommend.
