The customer service at the restaurant was on point as was the food. The main gentleman working in the restaurant was extremely helpful and friendly and ensured that we were comfortable.
The food tasted really nice and the overall décor of the restaurant was really nice too.

Unfortunately the Anniversary celebration was spoilt by extremely poor quality food - we did bring this to the managers attention and he did deduct the amount from the bill and apologised but it spoilt everything about the visit and especially when we have spent over £90. Extremely disappointing experience overall.

The restaurant has the wrong address on Google maps. The service was slow, even though we went late in the evening with fewer tables eating. Staff did not know what food they were serving us. That said, the food was good and portions hearty.

We went with some friends and ordered meals for our little girls which arrived within 10mins. We also ordered our starters which arrived quite quick. We then placed an order for our mains which just would not arrive and our little girls were getting so restless. The restaurant staff couldn’t care less. They were just busy with a big group that had arrived and kept blaming the poor service because of the big group. We had to cancel our mains order because the girls wouldn’t stay anymore. The owner/manager came to apologise, but he was just trying to cover up by saying that there was a fault with the system and our order hadn’t been received by the kitchen, whereas one of the staff actually told us that it was the same situation every weekend and that we should go back on a weekday! Shame on you Bnova for not caring for families and also leaving us (and our pregnant friend) without our mains! Why accept big groups if your staff are unable to cope?!

Food was good
Service needs to improve a lot. You ask for one thing and they forever to bring it to the table. Towards the end of the meal they waiters kept asking if we were done with with our drinks when we had drinks in the glasses. But overall the food was good.

Went with family for Valentine's day. Service was really good and cocktails were ok. Food was overpriced for the quality it was. Men were offered one free beer or one free mocktail which was a nice touch. Had to visit the ladies room with little room, would have avoided if poss.toilets were dirty,no warm water and sink was leaking...not good esp if you have kids. Littles ones hands were frozen everytime we visited the ladies due to cold water.

Love this restaurant!
Food is so good. Such a huge selection of food. They offer pallet cleansers between courses. It’s a nice relaxed atmosphere. Cocktails are nice. Decent wine list.
Highly recommended.

It was truly a pleasureable experience. The food was very tasty and they made us feel very comfortable. The chefs definitely know how to balance the flavour. The welcoming dish and a palette cleansing drink in between the starter and main course was a delightful touch. In all we were very happy. Well done to the team of Bnova.

Fantastic food, not just the run of the mill high street fare. But it was so noisy you couldn’t hear yourself think. The staff were very helpful in relocating us to a slightly quieter table. Overall though - really nice. Thank you

Food was fine, lots of vegetarian options on the menu. They also have a childrens menu which is rare for an indian restaurant. Service on the other hand was poor, considering we were one of 3 tables dining, the service was very slow.

Food was amazing yet again. Service was a bit on the slow side but waiters still very friendly. Nice selection of cocktails and the small taster provided to us whilst we waited for the food was a nice little touch. Will definitely be visiting again.

My wife, who was dining with a friend found the food and service good.
For a restaurant that seems to be aiming a little higher in its style, her only negative was not the interior, but the atmosphere. Seems the unfortunate location on Kenton borders attracts a certain diner that might not be perfectly accustomed to the etiquettes of high end dining .

Starters were really good, however the mains were less impressive. A lot of effort in the display and presentation of the starters, were given a nice muz-buche to cleanse the palate. Mains was a bland tomato sauce based Chicken karahi and it was very plain.

On first impressions great decor sat down quickly ... but here's the problem they have one waitress and one bar staff to get my order taken took over 20 mins food arrived promptly but was very average. It seems they have a few regulars as the one waitress was busy talking for ages to some of the customers .. wouldn't recommend this place

First time I came here on Saturday. A friend recommended it. The venue was not too crowded and didn't have loud music so we could talk and be heard. Starters and Mains where excellent and reasonably priced.

I would recommend to friends.

We came in for a last minute meal mid week with friends and were keen to try a different place .
The ambience in the restaurant is lovely , nothing pompous and not a converted pub with screens !!
The starters were delicious,
mains were also just as good , which is a surprise ,as with most of the places around here only starters tend to be good and mains worth missing .
service was with a smile.
Overall a lovely evening out, we will definitely return .
