“Great food and quality service”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

First visit to Simply Indian, and i can say it was a wonderful experience. With great food and quality service we went home very happy. Chicken Korai and Gazor Lamb had so much taste to it, that we ordered extra pilau rice to finish our meal. Defiantly will be back and will recommend friends/family.

“Rather bland indian food.”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

I found Simply Indian produced shocking bland food. We had about 7-8 dishes and none were particularly tasty. I would also say that the food was rather oily tool, as the were little pools of fat. You can't even smell the spices. Maybe, they did not put much in hence the lack of taste.
It is the first time I've come across a bland curry in 40 odd years.

To be honest I think most people could cook better at home.

“Shocking service and ordinary food”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Ok it was a Saturday night but it wasn't full. It took 45 minutes to get our starter and then they tried to serve us the food which the next table had ordered! When our food eventually came one dish was wrong and another dish was mild when we ordered medium as it was too mild last time we had it there. My lamb balti was ok and the chicken sagwalla was also ok but the channa masala is bland. Why do they then ignore you when you want to reorder drinks? Are they trained to not look at the tables? I think they've dumbed the food down too much and are getting complacent about service. And there's nowhere to park!

“Mad Hatter's Tea Party”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Was so looking forward to this, my second visit, as the first had been very good, if a little noisy. Arrived to find what appeared to be a children's party in full swing. Some staff were nice and friendly, some rather aloof. A waiter knocked over our bottle of wine spilling some on the floor, then promised to replace a bit of it but never did. I made a request to add one item to my main course dish and this was completely ignored by the chef. Seemed rather pricey, very disappointed, so won't be rushing back. There are better choices in the next town.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We really enjoyed our evening at this restaurant. There were some interesting dishes on the menu. The food was great, very fresh and tasty. The staff were very pleasant and the restaurant was spotless. It had a very nice atmosphere and you can also order a take away meal. I am sure we will return.
