I booked a table online and had an email confirmation and a reminder on the day. When myself and friends arrived at the restaurant I was told they were fully booked. I showed my confirmation to be told they they have only been there for 2 weeks and weren’t online and they were fully booked. Anyway after speaking to the manager, we were given a table (there were plenty of empty ones) we ordered our food and waited an hour for it to arrive, we had to ask for cutlery and napkins as we were not given any. Whilst waiting for our food one large table who were waiting for theirs walked out! I won’t be returning anytime soon!!

There weren't many people in there,"so a bit flat on atmosphere.

The waiters seemed a bit inexperienced, but when the food arrived, we were very pleasantly surprised.
The main menu was very expensive and short on choice so we chose of the take-away menu.

Nice meal for 4 after the White Cliffs beer festival. Nothing to fault. Tasty. We all enjoyed (but we had been on the lash all day).

Visited Virsa as a change to the usual curry takeout/restaurant options. Great choice! We booked for a very early dinner as we have a 3 year old so it was pretty quiet but there was friendly service and excellent food. Will definitely visit again

Excellent food. Not really what I would call a traditional Indian, but having said that, there were a lot of similarities. Very good selection and very well presented. Staff were friendly and food arrived fairly promptly. Although as with all good, freshly prepared food you expect to wait a little. Would highly recommend and will definitely go there again.

The food was good but the service was very slow. Waited an hour after ordering for our main course to be served and it wasn’t very warm as if it had been waiting on the side for a while. A friend we were with is a regular and said she’s never had such poor service before. There were quite a few customers but it wasn’t as if it was really busy. Will give it one more go as their naga was very nice, but if the service and temperature are the same that’s it for me

Fantastic as always! Accommodated us by allowing us to decorate the table. Happy to bring us a birthday cake with candles at the end of the meal. Quick, friendly service. Great food at a reasonable price.

Despite an initial hiccup with the restaurant not receiving our booking through opentable, we were squeezed in for a table. Food was very good and service was attentive and quick.

Quite an odd place. I can’t remember the last Indian restaurant I went to with hardly any Indian staff. The room was clearly still like me the pub it once was with pretty bad lighting - very bright. The popadoms to start we’re pretty stale. The starters took 20mins. The main courses a further 40 mins. When they arrived the food was not bad at all but far from traditional Indian. There were very few mainstream Indian dishes on the menu so you had to have a decent read. They served Bangal beer which was pretty good. Overall, I am not tempted to return but that is more to do with the poor lighting and terrible service than the food.

Although this was my second visit here I feel that there is still room for improvement when we arrived we were shown to our seats and I asked for the menus a young far eastern lady took our drinks order which was fine then a little later the same lady came and took our food order, we all ordered a starter and mains each. I noticed there were only 2 young ladies serving meals around the restaurant. I have the impression both these ladies were fairly new staff. Both ladies seem to disappear at the same time leaving no one attending the table when one did return she went to lay up another table, when she finished I had to indicate to her that we had finished our starters, so she removed our plates, our mains arrived and I didn’t have a fork as I had used it on my starters again no waitress to be seen so I got up and collected a fork from the cutlery counter. All the meals were fine except one of my party said her chicken was chewy but she ate it,not wanting to make a fuss.
A did a gentleman come and ask if everything was ok but that was towards the end of our meal, by then most of the food had been eaten. I just feel that the whole evening was ok ,but could have been better maybe with more staff on a Friday night 2 young girls who in all our opinions were quite shy and seemed to be new to the job.

We do visit lots of different Indian restaurants and I feel your staff need to be more attentive to the customers as a times we felt like we had been deserted by staff. But what we had we enjoyed but maybe when I return for another meal things might have improved thank you
