  I went to this shambolic restaurant on my birthday with 6 additional family & friends (i.e. 7 in total). We had booked in advance & had even previously called to make a change to the number of people & confirmed the time. When we arrived our reservation was apparently cancelled with no explanation – failure one. When we were finally seated, we received two menus for 7 people & then another two every few minutes. It also took a very long time with regards to taking orders – failure number two. Perhaps the worst offense for any restaurant but in particular an Indian restaurant was when my wife (vegetarian due to fasting) was served a mince samosas (served as part of a vegetarian platter (we had ordered 3 platters) which she had bit into. Restaurants failing to serve the correct food could cause health & religious issues – failure three. The manager, who took forever to actually come to our table, then offered a limp wristed & half-hearted apology/ excuse & did not even have the good grace to even offer to comp the starters. When I took the initiative & said I would not pay for the starters, she then had the audacity say that she will only comp one – failure four. Lastly, despite saying that their policy was to add a service charge to tables of 8 people or more, they added one to our table of 7 (which we paid as we could not be bothered to fight such an inept manager) – failure five. Five stars worth of failure....   Read More
