Food was excellent and service was prompt and very nice. We were seated downstairs which felt like a basement room-- no windows and hot, which was a bit unpleasant, but the entrance level looked like it would be a nice experience and was much cooler temperature-wise.

We visited for Father’s Day lunch with two other families; so a large group. We had to move the time last minute and they accommodate this.
The food was lovely. We like spice so it was definitely up our street! The waiter recommended some mild dishes for the kids which were a hit (empty plates).
My only issue was the portions which I think were smaller than expected.
I must also point out that their cocktails are great too. Their twist on mohito and Bellini were delish.
All in all a good experience.

Disappointed that we came for a birthday celebration lunch and the bar man was not available or in at work to make up the drinks :((
Also being Saturday, the ladies washroom could have been cleaned & bin emptied.

Dessert was not value for money, ordered gulab jamun for 3.75 and they only gave one!

Mains were not good but starters were nice

Très bon restaurant indien, néanmoins attention au piment! Vous pouvez demander à ce que les plats soient peu épicés

I would definitely recommend Dhaba@49. The food is delicious the service excellent and the staff really helpful. Because of a mix up our taxi did not arrive, but the manager swiftly arranged a car for us, so 5 stars all round.

Fabulous food with a cool modern vibe. However, the staff seemed a little inexperienced, mixing up the tables and having to be asked twice for the same thing. Also found it a little difficult to understand our waitet’s accent. He did go out of his way to make up for his shortcomings and was very polite. I think staff training will give this restaurant the edge it needs to really stand out!!!

Too much noise from the bar area where they made mango lassi. Not possible to talk in the restaurant when they used this machine. Recommend to move the machine to different place.

Food is good but nothing special. Just regular indian food.

We were regular customers of the previous restaurant and were keen try Dhaba@49, especially when we heard some positive feedback from someone that had been there.

Drinks selection was good, especially the cocktails menu. The food that we ordered was delicious - the standouts were the naan bread and the butter chicken which was pleasantly slightly spicy. We even made room for dessert. One suggestion for improvement is to increase the number of main dishes slightly.

Service is attentive - just the right balance for us.

Smart but informal restaurant - great for couples, small or larger groups of friends/family. We've now dined here twice and will definitely be returning.
