Food is bland and has an unauthentic taste, looks presentable but tastes too much like a rogue recipe fit for iceland frozen food aisle. Decent atmosphere but random cats roaming around for food scraps

Another great time with friends :)
Absolutely love this place as the clientele is mature and the food is great. No need for a jacket as the outdoor heating is on point and sheltered. Brilliant staff. Thank you ;)

I booked table for two for 6.30pm. It was perfect time as we got to chose where we wanted to sit, as it wasn't very busy yet!
The starters were served promptly although we had to wait a while for our dinner as it started getting busy. The food was tasty and the portions were good size for two. The waitress there was very welcoming and made sure we were OK.

In spite of a confirmed booking of a table for 2 and arriving well in time, we were made to wait in the Q outside and in freezing cold conditions. After a 1/2 hour wait in freezing Q, a security guy felt sort for us and ushered us inside asking us to wait in the small waiting area. He told us that they had overbooked by almost double and hence the long wait.
After another 20 minutes wait inside, we were ushered to a table for two that was specifically put in place for us but placed right in the middle of an isle and literally without a canopy. No protection from the light drizzle of rain. That table either had a shot leg or the floor wasn’t even.
After complaining, we go moved to a better table. The waiters came round for our orders and as one does, we ordered a bottle of Tusker Beer and a jug of water. The waiter came back in less then a minute, to inform us they didn’t have Tusker. I ordered Diet Coke instead and also ordered 2 poppadoms to come with the drinks. Another waiter promptly brought us our drinks that included a bottle of Tusker (which they said they had run out of as the Diet Coke) without the poppadoms.
We were asked to order our starters and mains all in one go but assured that the mains would be brought to our table after we finished our starters. When the food arrived, both starters and mains arrived at the same time.
Must admit the food quality was good. However, our evening got ruined as one of the waiters and a manager had a heated argument with a group of diners on a table next to ours. Disappointed, we didn’t finish our meal and asked for our bill.
When the bill arrived, we noticed that we were charged for the poppadoms which were never brought to our table.
No doubt the manager revised the bill and deducted the service charge.
Overall, the management’s attitude as far as service goes, was not as expected from a reputable establishment.
The whole experience was no better the 2 stars. Very disappointed.

We sat outside near the garden the weather was great. Food was yummy too.

However the service was really slow for example we were getting drinks and they didn’t come to our table even if we said excuse me either they didn’t hear or were avoiding everyone in our corner :/

No shisha not stated on the website or 2/4/1 on cocktails.
Staff member mentioned a lot of people have come here for shisha yet we don’t have it due to covid.
They should have clearer guidelines on the website.

As always the food was amazing however the service wasn't great. We basically seated ourselves and there was long waits for waiters to take orders. The outdoor seating area is nice but when asked for the heater to be turned on we were told all were out of gas. Yet 10 minutes later other waiters were turning on heaters for other customers so our waiter just could not be asked to do it.

Food was hit and miss some was good some items not so good and some items all had same taste. Service was extremely slow given it wasn’t busy waiting up to 45 each time drinks were ordered. Tables could have been cleared quick too.

Terrible service. Food took nearly 2 hours to arrive. Sat for an order before someone came to take our drinks order. Waiters were rude. Resting their trays of food on our table as if we are invisible. Would not go back

Last day before lockdown no:2.
Busy night as you can imagine. Long queue for shisha, food arrived late and was very cold. Service poor- waited ages for someone to come and take order. Overhyped and overpriced for what it is, in my opinion.

AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE, avoid. Plenty of better places to go on the Uxbridge Road.

Wish i had read the other google reviews before booking a table here, looks like i’m not the only person thats had bad experience with their staff. Before even entering the restaurant was “greeted” by an aggressive “security guard / parking attended” who refused me entrance as i had parked on the side road adjacent to the restaurant, he rudely said i would have to park somewhere else or i wouldnt be allowed into the restaurant. And continued yell at me and my girlfriend as i questioned why i had to move the car. The side road was a public road and has no signs or parking restrictions.

Conveniently as i moved my car, the security guided another customer into the SAME parking space.

Please employ staff that actually care about your business and its customers. As because of this experience I will discourage anyone I know to visit your restaurant.

Hi,

Me and my wife visited on 28th oct and were very disappointed the chilli chicken starter - there was hardly any chicken and was more peppers then anything.

For Main we ordered Lamb roganjosh and asked for it to be spicy, when it came it was very bland and full of tomato, the rice we ordered was very cheap thing rice and did not taste great at all. We ordered a coke in between which did not come so had to ask again for this. Was not a good experience at all. My advice would be if you are going to charge these prices then i suggest you improve your food quality and portians.

Normally rate this place highly! There food is good! But on this occasion I told to make my food mild because I had my toddler with me but they but green chillies in the dishes asked them to make them mild. You can imagine what happened when my daughter ate that !!
