“5* food 2* service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

I have eaten in here on numerous occasions (and ordered takeaways) and it is always so frustrating.

The food is fantastic and the staff are really friendly – there just isn’t enough of them!
On our latest visit the restaurant was overbooked, they were suffering from an acute shortage of staff (one of the waiters hadn’t shown up for work) and we waited well over an hour for our food.

If this restaurant staggered its bookings and employed more staff it would get 5 stars. If you do venture in on a Friday or Saturday night just be prepared to wait a long time for your food; the consolation is it is worth waiting for!

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

We had dinner here, and although the one waiter worked extremely hard, the 'cafe' style is a little basic and the food was only average. There was an air conditioning unit but it either wasn't on or not working so the restaurant was also very warm. We left full but underwhelmed and wouldn't go back when visiting Wells again.

My group of five ( 3 adults plus 2 kids) really enjoyed our dinner. Some of the best Indian food that we've eaten. Thanks!

“Excellent all round Indian experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

Wells city provides a decent choice of eateries from high end (The Old Spot & Goodfellows) to National chains ( Ask) and bespoke outlets . Of the 2 Indian restaurants Cafe Romna provides the upmarket outlet. Excellent pickles and papadums, interesting fusion starters and classic mains make this the place in Wells for quality Asian cuisine.
