It was my partners birthday last Friday so i wanted to invite him for a nice meal.I've choosen this place as it had some good reviews on Tripadvisor. First when we arrived we've noticed that the place was full and there was just one waiter.
As it was really cold outside we fancied a drink which would warmed us up a bit. We were advised that they didn't get the delivery so there were no spirits in the bar(just a little observation there is a shop just across the road literally 30 seconds walk and also within 5 mins driving distance couple of bigger supermarkets so somehow I didn't get that excuse). So we ordered 2 pints of beer instead. After a while older lady brought us 2 half pint bottles of beer. Her answer for "excuse me, but we've ordered 2 pints" was "OK". We've been given no glasses for this either so I had to pour it into the wine glass which was on the table. Later I have noticed that I was not the only one in the restaurant who had to do that. When the waiter came to take our food order I have asked about the beer and apparently the draught was broken.
The food was average and in my opinion the sheesh kebab was way too spicy and there wasn't enough meat in lamb biryani.
Now to the most annoying part of this experience- bill.I'm pretty sure I've been overcharged! I was not given the breakdown of the bill but I've seen a glance of it when i was paying. So I got charged £12 for 4 half pint bottles of beer which I would not even drink if they had something else in the bar! Also I found a voucher online for buy one get second main meal free. In menu it stated that with biryani dish you get vegetable site curry dish and with tandoori chicken rice and vegetable site curry dish. Now that means we would pay just for one meal and that's about £9. We had 2 starters £3 each and poppadoms + garlic naan for £3.50. All this is totalling just over £30, but the bill was £35. I've noticed the difference straight away when he asked me to pay that much but because it was my boyfriend birthday I didn't wanted to spoilt the evening for him even more, at the end of a day it is just £4.50 but it's annoying!
Well now I know where I won't definitely go for dinner again.
