    The food was pretty good, although it was expensive for what it was. I would say that I'd be happy to pay the prices, but it felt a bit tacky. The building is beautiful with old style, wooden, barn-type beams and features. But some of the walls are covered in tacky looking lights and fur. The atmosphere is a strange one, I couldn't hear my partner over the loud music playing, it wasn't themed music either. At one point I was trying to have a conversation but all I could hear was Beyonce. Service was 10/10 and couldn't have asked for any more attentiveness. The meal came to nearly £100 for 2 people with no alcohol, or desserts. We just got a starter each, 1 main & rice to share, 1 side dish, and some naan bread. In general at an Indian restaurant I would expect that to be about £60 based on previous experience.

    Enjoyed Sunday lunch at the Snooty Mehmaan. The menu was limited to thali’s only, but the meat thali was faultless with outstanding individual dishes. Service was perfect and the price very reasonable. We’ll be back!!

    We were celebrating a birthday and received a card and voucher redeemable over a month. Nice comfortable table with a warm and welcoming atmosphere- with perfect lighting for a night out. Service was brilliant. Food very tasty with a good selection- would be happy with a range of starters as too many delicious ones to pick!
