We really enjoyed our early evening meal, which was purchased through Living Social. The staff were very welcoming, pleasant and nothing was too much trouble for them. We both had a starter and a main course, both were very tasty, fresh and excellent. The whole experience was very good and to top it off, the manager gave us a card for 25% off our next visit. I would recommend it to anyone..

Purchased through Living Social. Myself and my friend dined here a few weeks ago. Midweek so not very busy. Staff were lovely, decor could be better. 3 course, started with Brushetta, cant go wrong with that, generous portion. Main course was the grill, most impressed, good portion and cooked well, plenty of flavour. Dessert we ordered the cheese cake again generous serving. We had drinks and side order. Would I go again, yes, but only on a deal as it dis make it good value for money.

My work colleagues and I visited on Saturday in the evening. The restaurant was in no way full but had a nice vibe to it. It started well with us being served by a lovely bar man as we waited for our table. Unfortunately after that it was all downhill. The waiting staff were lovely and this review is not about them. The service itself however was appalling. We did not have one member of staff allocated to us, in total we liaised with 4 different people and the manager. It took us asking to be seated to be seated. The glasses for the water were covered in fingerprints and also had to be returned. Over half an hour for our order to be take, an hour for the starter to arrive (the calamari was rock hard and returned). After speaking with the manager it was agreed that our main would arrive within 20 mins of the starter, this to his credit did occur with a complimentary bottle of Brut.
The main courses received mixed reviews, the korma was bland, the Thai prawns were ok but served with awfully cooked veg. The rice was hard. The peshwari naan was stuffed with coconut and pink inside. We were informed this was because it was cherry?! We didn't stay for dessert and I for one was still hungry. We did pay, not full price but in reality even £20 each was too much for the 'quality' of the food we received.
Though the manager was apologetic and explained the chef was ill, in a restaurant in the centre of Notts, this is not an acceptable level of service.
Unfortunately we will not be eating there again, I sincerely hope this was just a bad day for them.

We had to ask to be seated and to order. We waited an hour for starters and the calamari was inedible. I've never had grilled king prawns with cold roast potatoes and reheated vegetables.. Yuck! The rest of the food was average at best! The glasses and cutlery were not cleaned properly. I absolutely recommend that you never go here.
