Came in Here on a Wednesday night as it looked busy as we passed on the main Bury New road and we were looking for a good curry.
This place has been renovated over the last couple of years and it is very big inside just as it looks from the outside with plenty of free parking.
First impressions were that it is modern and spacious, not looking like an Asian restaurant themed place, there was no music either, there were about 7 tables with people who seemed to be enjoying conversation and eating next to the main window overlooking the road Junction.
We got the impression that it was a quiet Family run restaurant, everywhere was clean, well laid out and tidy, we were taken to a choice of tables by a young English girl who made us feel very welcome, the waiter took our wine order and recommended the house wine but we we chose a bottle of Pinot Grigio instead. A young Asian Lady came to explain they had ran out of that as they were upgrading the suppliers so we chose a Spanish Rioja instead which they dropped the price on as a Gesture.
I got the impression that there is not a regular set and timely routine when placing orders as though the staff were new to Restaurant service but they were very friendly and chatted to us to make us feel welcome and we were in no rush anyway.
As people have mentioned the food does look very much the same in appearance and colour for some reason but it did taste great. I ordered Chicken Hindi and my friend had Lamb Nihari, we also had the usual, popodoms, condiments and Peshwari and plain nan Breads, no rice just the bottle of Rioja. The bill was £34.00 which we though was normal, they do have special offers on early evenings and beginning of the week discounts.
I think if they did some staff training so they made more focus on a timely service and made distinct differences between the different foods appearance on offer, some Indian background Music and decor too then this place would be really great.
The one one seven is close to quite a number of other good restaurants so our feeling is that they must be doing most things right as there would not be so many people dining if it were not good.
We will return again as I like to see small friendly family business's find success.
Give them a try see what you think, we enjoyed it.
