“Spur of the moment-can't be bothered to cook visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Yet another fabulous visit, when we arrived it was spur of the moment and the restaurant was fully booked with a party expected in the next hour, but they made room for us! Yet again fab service, great food and drinks and a reasonable bill!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

I have been to all the Indian restaurants sleaford has to offer and this is by far the best ! The staff are friendly and service is great for either a takeaway or dining in.I won't go anywhere else and they know me by name now !

“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

I didnt have the chance to try the food. After waiting 5 mins for a table for 2, we were seated, sold drinks and then ignored for 25 minutes. Despite repeatedly asking to order, we were told a colleague would be over. The last straw was when a party who arrived a while after us were able to order.
At that point we paid for our drinks (£4.40 for 2 small cokes) and walked out without so much as an apology.
If that is considered acceptable service avoid.

“If Carlsberg did curry.......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

What a gem, great value, superb food and excellent service. It might not look more than a converted diner next door to a car wash but this place is superb. I have eaten curry in many countries and all over the UK but this place is remarkable. Give it a try and I hope you are not disappointed. The food was subtle, good quality and plentiful without being over-facing.

“Second review by me”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

I previously reviewed this restaurant a few months ago, when we had a decidedly average experience in the restaurant (mainly let down by slow, slow service).

This time I'm reviewing their home delivery service, as many local people will possibly wish to use that. I'll keep it short. We rang through an order for 9 people on a Saturday night at 7.10pm and we live 4 miles away. We were advised it would be with us in an hour (what we expected). The food arrived 9.15pm. No phone call to apologise and let us know of the delay...some of us were so hungry we'd have eaten our own eyebrows (if we hadn't had to fill up with snacks to keep us going). The delivery man just laughed when we asked why the delay and said "at least you know it's freshly cooked". How about a profuse apology, maybe some free poppadoms (not that we could have eaten any more snacks) or a gesture of a small discount, it was a decent order after all. Or better still, why not just manage your customers expectations and give sensible delivery timings and phone them to let them know of any delays. This is not the first time this has happened but we gave them a second chance. Lesson to be learnt is allow 2 hours to get a delivery and push them for an accurate delivery time.

Not all bad though...I will be fair and say the food was excellent and it was hot and fresh as promised. So 5 stars for food, 1 star for service and customer management = 3 star review.
