“Night out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Very comfortable surroundings and a pleasant atmosphere greeted our party of 8 (including 3 children). It was a relatively quiet night and the staff numbers quite sufficient.The drinks waiter served us promptly, and the menus arrived shortly after. A good, but small, selection of drinks and enough menu choices for most people. Games, colouring books and toys were brought to the tablet for the kids. Orders were taken and took quite a long time to be brought to the table, and a few were mixed up. Small, but quite sufficient, portions, nicely cooked and presented were the order of the day. A small selection of deserts and desert wines were offered. A pleasant enjoyable evening was had by all..

“Good Value for Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

Flame doesn't sound like Indian Restaurant and until we saw the menu it was apparent that yes its an indian restaurant. Totally amazed with the cheap dinner deal and cocktails however I didn't like the presentation of the food. The curry was dripping out from the dish, it was overfilled and when the waitress put on the table it was bit messed. Curry was really tasty though. Little concern on hygiene would be better.

“Great value even in meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

I really enjoyed my meal. Staff and customer service was excellent. I tried the $10 evening meal. Great range of food. Meal was slow coming. Staff provided us a wee snack till meal arrived. I'll be back again. I love the decor in the restaurant

“creamy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Never have I had so much cream in a curry that isn't mean't to have cream in. They forgot to bring our starters and then told us that the mains would make up for it, they didn't! The only good thing about the food was the roti which were very nice and the lady who served us was lovely. Will not go again.
