“bland bland and bland!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

there is a restaurant attached the takeaway which is at the back of the building-not easy to find tho. We used to use the takeaway but stopped a couple of years ago as it went downhill with poor food. Given the time in-between visits it has possibly got even worse. I assume its the same food served in the restaurant that they sell in the takeaway and all I can say is I must have a better palate than other reviewers as the food we got was appalling. I telephoned as the chicken with cashew nuts....had no cashew nuts! Oh the chef probably forgot to put them in I was told. He did however offer to deliver the missing nuts. I declined as by then we had decided the food was going in the bucket, Ribs that had been boiled (I presume) as the meat was mostly off the bone and tasteless with a gloopy sauce over them and shards of bone to contend with, The chicken curry had chunks of chicken that were spongy and onions overcooked -again tasted as if they had been boiled before being added to the chicken with a thick sauce with little taste. The only decent things were the egg fried rice and prawn crackers but then you cant really do much wrong to them. Definitely not using again and a waste of £15.95.
