On arrival, young chap led us to table but straightaway left us without any hint of enquiry as to whether the location actually suited us ... I really would have expected him to dwell for a moment or two and to have said something by way of a welcome. I noticed that several parties arriving after ourselves were treated in exactly the same offhand manner and so sharply focused compared with the welcoming warm manner of our table waiter "Craig" This really should be put right - it's not a difficult thing to achieve.

Nice decor, but the acoustics were bad and so made the noise travel around the whole place. Service was at best relaxed, but polite and offered with a smile. We had a mix of food, which was very nicely presented. No rush to finish or leave. Didn't quite get the sports bar at the front.....didn't sit well with the restaurant at the rear. Would definitely go again.

The only place where you can get a decent curry (my husband would like the madras a bit hotter) and good English good. Lots of curry houses, but their English food is rubbish.

On arrival our booking through your company had not been forwarded to the restaurant. However they went above and beyond the call and although the restaurant was very busy found us a table with the minimum of delay. At all times they were helpful pleasant and very accommodating. All aspects of our time there were excellent and we will be regular customers from now on. We will however book direct with them to assure our reservation.

Went for a birthday meal. Food was excellent. Staff member who was very busy, still managed to be polite and also apologetic for not being able to get to us sooner. 10 out of 10 for customer service 😀

Went to Koyla Kitchen on really short notice on a Saturday evening. The staff were attentive and polite and the food was cooked to a really high standard, they weren't many over diners so it lacked a little ambience but we were eating early in the evening so maybe it filled up a little later. The interior has been refurbished to a high standard and the seating is well spaced out which made it a really nice place to have a meal. I'd certainly recommend it to friends and we'll be eating there again.

Atmosphere was nil, starters where very poor, main was delivered incorrectly i.e ordered wedges and received French fries, these where replaced. On the positive side both our steaks where cooked very well and did taste good , we where also given a drink on the house for the mistake with the order. We thought it was too expensive for the experience we had.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff are very friendly ,particularly our waiter - sadly I didn't get his name - tall,slim with glasses . Good to see a menu with different food options, but i was disappointed with the vegetarian choices, particularly as I don't like soya. The salmon dish was lovely though ! I would certainly recommend Koyla Kitchen and hope to be returning soon .
