My girlfriend & I booked a table in advance at this Indian restaurant based on the reviews on this website, expecting something really special. On arrival we were both welcomed by friendly staff & quickly shown to our table at the rear of the restaurant away from the busy crowd by ourselves (literally). The restaurant is average in appearance with nothing to distinguish itself from any other standard Indian we've been to in the past. The staffs were very attentive & friendly, however when the food arrived on a trolley to our table the waiter couldn't distinguish which curry was which from the other, even though one was lamb & one was chicken. We were served each other’s main order & told to ascertain which ones belonged to the other ! The rice was also served by the waiter by him covering his hand clasped closely over the top of the bowl instead of under within easy touching distance of the rice itself, which isn't pleasant to see in a high class restaurant.
The moderately hot food served was then left on the table unheated as you helped yourself to it from the bowls on the table; but became cold very quickly because the main plates were stone cold (No, we didn't order a salad). As I was with my girlfriend, I was slightly embarrassed not to openly complain for fear of spoiling both our romantic meal. The curry my girlfriend ordered was asked prior to be made especially milder. Despite this request, it arrived very hot & spicy. Sadly she left the majority of her curry uneaten. We both left the meal & restaurant unhappy about poor experience. We love eating out normally, but felt let down on this occasion.
