“Give this place a wide berth”
Reviewed 2 March 2013 via mobile

This is one of the worst places I have ever eaten. The place is horrible and dirty. It was cold in there which meant we were uncomfortable from the start. We had to move tables because of the cold blowing in from an unused door. The chair I was given was broken? The main courses were at best luke warm, naan bread was cold. All the meals were dried up and pretty tasteless. When asked whether everything was ok we pointed out these things to the waiter, he just turned around and walked away. The men's toilet was disgusting. The door doesn't shut and there was nothing to dry your hands with. Overall terrible.

“A friendly place”

We've been here many times. The staff are friendly and the food is great tasting and well priced for a good night out.

“Nice people until they tried to overcharge us.”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

We passed through Newton Le Willows on Xmas eve, on the way back from a funeral in London. We just needed a spot of food before finishing the final three hours of our journey. We arrived at about 18.00 and asked for a table for two. We were told they were fully booked but we could have a table if we were away by 19.30. That was fine as we still had a substantial drive ahead.

We ordered four vegetarian side portions, rice, nan, and a couple of beers. The food was fine. It was not as spicy as it might be. The Indian cheese in the mattar paneer and saag paneer turned out to be melted cheddar. I cook with paneer often and it was not paneer. Shame about that. However, the taste of the cheddar fitted in a strange way.

The total cost, from menu prices should have been about £20, but a bill for over £30 arrived. We were told that there was a set menu for Xmas eve of £14.95 per head plus drinks, but they were only charging us £12.95 per head. We told them we were not paying their price as no one had mentioned this to us. We were not there for a night-out – just a drive-by munching. After a few minutes of tension, they charged us the correct amount.

The ending was very, very disappointing, as they had seemed so pleasant and accommodating before they tried to rip us off. This is a down market place, but is clean and tidy. Will we go back? No. Can we recommend it? No.
