    De Baga fell short this time. My previous 5 or 6 meals were great, Something wasn't right this time. The service was slow and disinterested. The filling in the paneer baos was different from (and not as good as) last time. My friend's prawn curry seemed to be just a few prawns in a sauce. The rice was only warm and in 'clumps'. She wondered why I'd chosen this restaurant. I knew but might think twice next time.

    We really enjoyed our meal at De Baga and would return to try more of their delicious dishes. I loved my starter of Sev Puri, my mouth is watering even remembering it. The chicken biryani was on the salty side which was a shame as the chicken was moist and flavoursome. The service needs some work; the restaurant was busy but when you’ve been seated for 25 minutes, menus closed and not even had your drinks order taken, they need to sort it. Watching two tables seated after us attended to before us was particularly galling.

    Delicious food. The okra and broccoli starter was delicious. The main meal, the Goan coconut and vegetable curry with roti were delicious. Perhaps slightly too much salt. The waiting staff were incredibly kind and very efficient but not too fast. It was just perfect. With 20% off food for booking in January it was good value and it was full by the time we left at 7.30pm.

    Our 1st time we have booked here, and it was brilliant. Not a run of the mill Indian, but a different menu that was very interesting. The explanation of the menu was easy to understand, and we ordered a couple of curries. The food arrived quickly and was very hot, not always the case in restaurants. The curries were delicious and thoroughly enjoyed them. Would definately recommend De Baga
