We bought a groupon voucher and were really excited about visiting this new restaurant. Upon arrival we were impressed with the decor and atmosphere of the bar/restaurant. However, it was extremely busy and there were not enough staff to accommodate all customers. We were finally seated and were left for half an hour without even a drink. After ordering a cocktail they didn't even arrive for another 20 minutes. We then had to ask for the food and they were not clear on what we were getting until we specifically asked twice. We then got the first few courses of the tapas deal and said to the manager we were not very happy with the service. He responded with "well your dishes are on the table now". Not the response you need. We eventually ordered more dishes as the tapas was not enough for four people. Extremely small portions. Everything was taking so long so we decided to cancel the order but were told that we were unable to do so and they had made the dish although everything else seemed to take so long!! We refused to pay and were going to go elsewhere as the service was so poor. Went to a restaurant called Jeera and were very pleased with their food and service. Would recommend going there instead!

we purchased a groupon voucher for a 5 course meal. unfortunately we had to leave without being served. we booked in advance requesting a high chair and were assured that one would be available. on arrival they informed us they have no high chairs leaving us to seat the toddler on our lap. this was just the start of the disaster. being vegetarians when when it came to ordering the food we were told that they would only serve us meat dishes and that it was our fault as we hadn't informed they of our special dietary requirements i.e. that we were vegetarian. the deal clearly stated that vegetarian options were available. I've not been to an indian restaurant to date where you need to inform them of being vegetarian. next they would'nt serve us with bread and salad as this was not printed on our groupon voucher even though it is stated on the groupon deal on the groupon website. this was all we could tolerate so we had to leave without eating. this is the first time this has ever happened to us in years of eating out. visit this place at your peril. good luck.

Visited yesterday, using a groupon voucher, was a little worried having read reveiws, but the meal was excellent, one of the best Indians we have had for a long time. Also had a starter that was fantastic. Would certainly reccommend this restaurant.

I visited with my husband for lunch using a Groupon voucher. We had read other reviews which said that there was not enough food so were thinking we would have to stop off for a sandwich on the way home. However, there was plenty of food and plenty of choice even from the menu which was available for the voucher. The food was really good and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

The restaurant is large and with it being an early lunchtime there was only us and one other table in. I can imagine the atmosphere is great there in an evening. I would recommend some music though to fill the big space.

We would visit again
