I have been to this place loads of times and have never had poor service. Food is really good and they do a "half price main course" offer through the week until 7pm.

The Rupee Room serves up possibly the best Indian cuisine in the West! Their lassni tikka is a garlic lover's paradise and the selection of puris and starters is fantastic. The food is excellent and pretty good value for money. I would recommend the haggis pakora as fusion cuisine at its very, very best.

Unfortunately the rest of the dining experience doesn't always live up to the food.

The restaurant is small and really cramped: they really squeeze in the tables. It's awkward to get into but once you are seated it's not too bad, if you don't mind the fact that you are likely to find yourself making new friends at the next table!

The place is usually very busy, even midweek. However the attitude of the staff is often less than welcoming. I recently witnessed one waiter being downright insolent to a couple who had arrived without reservations. I've also personally been on the receiving end ot the manager's arrogance and grumpy temper when the service was really poor. Unfortunately it's a bit of a hit or miss, service wise. We have taken the less stressful option and decided not to risk dining in again, but will use the carry out instead. It's exactly the same quality of food but without the awful service.

I know from speaking to local people that our experiences aren't unique: it continues to do well because the food is second to none but they really do risk alienating their client base if they don't sharpen up their act on the service front. Still, the food is great and probably worth the risk of a few uncomfortable moments!
