    Venue is very close to Etihad so useful when going to a gig to grab dinner. The staff are very friendly and the food is brilliant, however, it is very expensive.

    The restaurant is very nicely decorated but the food and service do not match to that experience. We were sat so close to other people on other tables it was like were dining with them. We attended pre concert and chose the concert menu. The appetisers came within minutes of ordering, there wasn't a lot for the price. The mains we had to wait over 45 minutes for which was not good and we kept being told it was on the way. The food when it came was average curry really. It had obviously been cooked in a huge batch as it was on the set menu so not sure why it took so long. The service was not great...we were never asked if the food was ok or if we wanted another drink. We only had Coke and this was rather expensive at £3 for a tiny bottle.... Overall i think the place is very nice but the food was average at best and the service poor. The set menu was £25 per person which was not value for what you actually got. We saw a 10% service charge on our bill which we asked to be removed. Tried it, but wouldn't go back again.

    Food was not great- rice was cold, lamb tasted over seasoned and just overall lacked lustre. New menu is a must as even the chicken curry it was as if the meat had preheated a few times chicken was quite hard and barely tender not good at all

    Really poor service we ordered poppadoms for starter and mains, we were on a very small table and they delivered the starters and mains all at the same time for which there was no space including the drinks and condiments already situated on the table, I had to highlight this to the manager who attempting to push all of the food onto the table and tell him to take the mains away so we could eat our starters without the mains and plates falling off the table, he went off with the mains sulking and then the brought back the mains cold after being sat while we ate our starter, I will not be going back to Vermillion, you would think it was obvious that a paying customer won’t want all of their food precariously hanging off a table clearly these guys don’t care if you’re food is all over the table like a McDonald’s, very unprofessional

    Generally poor quality food for premium quality prices. Deffo not a fine dining experience. Popadom chutney/pickle tray was the worst I’ve had in my life as was the peppercorn sauce that came with the 1cm thick steak. Won’t be visiting again

    We went for our anniversary and really enjoyed the food. It was quiet for a Sunday but that meant more attention for us. It was a sweet touch that we got a brownie with a huge sparkling candle and happy anniversary piped. We appreciated that. Food is tasty and just to note we've been here for a birthday party set menu and that was delicious too!

    The appetizer (butterfly prawns) was delish. The main course (chicken tikka sauce with rice and lamb chops with rice) was very dry. The plating was very poor as-well. The drinks was delicious. The vermillion Martini cocktail and candy loss cocktail was a star.

    I was very disappointed with the service , we had ordered starters and mains and mocktails. The mains came first , then the starters followed then the drinks. In a complete wrong order. We had to ask twice for my friends drink as they forgot to bring it out. I felt all over the place , I didn’t like the service it was very slow and I disliked how the food was brought out. For that reason I won’t be dining in Vermillion again.

    Chicken in the curry dishes was really tough and dry. The spices didn’t feel cooked through. Tasted like it was out of a jar to be honest. Host was really polite and attentive but food was a real disappointment.

    The food is standard in terms of its generic. For example when asked to make something a little hotter than normal, chillies get added to it. The curry is cooked is standard sauce which is from a tin. The food was cold and we didn't even go at a busy time. The napkin had hair all over it and the worst thing is that the bottle of mineral water was just under £5.
