Our friends were rather late in arriving but there was no pressure from staff of the SN as our allotted table time elapsed by about 30 mins. Quite the contrary, they were accommodating, friendly and professional. Food great as usual, and service efficient and unobtrusive.

We have visited the Snooty Mehmaan several times and can’t recommend it enough. As you enter the premises you are always greeted professionally by the staff and offered storage for your coats and jackets. After being shown to your table the service continues by the attentive waiters who are never out if sight should you require them for assistance when choosing your meal. The menu is vast and could be seen as a little overwhelming but it certainly offers every option that you should require from this cuisine. Vegans and vegetarians are well catered for with many options, which is a pleasant change from the usual offerings. As a meat eater, the menu is perfect, ranging from Salmon to Steak. Everthing I have eaten so far has been cooked to perfection and I am yet to discover my favourite meal as they have all been so good!

If you enjoy really tasty food with great service in a well laid out restaurant, then look no further than the Snooty Mehmaan.

Sunday eat-all-you-want buffet is good value for the food on offer. Weekday a la carte menu here is exceptional; Sunday choices are more limited and mainstream but very tasty nonetheless. Choice of several starters, five or six mains plus rice etc, naan bread is brought to your table, dessert also included. Very polite staff and all very clean. Certainly didn't leave hungry!

The came for the buffet lunch on a Sunday with our 2 children, two friends and their son. The buffet was delicious and varied. They served starters, mains and deserts all of which were extremely well cooked. They also brought us nan breads to the table. They were very accommodating especially with the children! It was a great value meal and we would definitely come again!

I normally work and dine in London and I can truly compare it with any good Indian restaurant in the city but for a third of the price with a superior service. There’s never a problem for them with any of my food requests. The vegan and vegetarian options are insane!
You feel always very welcome and you leave the place happier and quite full 😉. (That 0,0 Cobra is great!)

Our second recent visit to the Snooty.
Food is always good and there are the obvious Indian food items on the menu but a lot more that you would struggle to find elsewhere.
The staff are friendly and helpful - they are also happy to accommodate any " tweaks " you might wish to add to any of the listed dishes.
I personally find the bar area seating better than the main dining area.
I was 100% happy with the evening but one of my guests said it might be nice to have had some background music. I'm not sure I agree but thought I would mention it.

The staff were very attentive, fully explaining the food options. They gave us plenty of time for making choices and we did not have to make all decisions beforehand. They catered well for the vegetarian in our party. Altogether a most successful evening.
