Reviews

  • Poor food, poor service

    12/04/2014 by

    Curry sauce was really watery, meat over cooked, lacking Indian spice. Party of four and all meals were disappointing. Restaurant cramped and service poor. I'll stick to Pappadams who never disappoint.

    My opinion: 1. In house: Untidy, cramped (most indian restaurants abroad are), highly unruly and unprofessional staff (not all of them obviosuly but yes some of them) 2. Food: Decent, not as great as pappadams but decent enough. 3. Delivery: Minimum order 20 quids. Staff answering the phone are rude and unprofessional to the extreme. Firstly, they answer the phone after 10-15 rings and sometimes more. Second, they make noise in the background and talk to other people/colleagues. Third, they cannot figure out where their card machine is and get it to work and so keep you on hold forever. Delivery guys are very polite and professional. Delivery time ~45mins-1hour (I live less than a mile away) I used to order food from Royal Tandoori only because of the following reasons: 1. Only Indian restaurant I knew which would deliver north indian food Oh wait, thats the only reason. However, there was a catch - you had to order a minimum of 20 quids. Since I live alone and don't cook very often, I had no other option but to order 20 quids worth of food and eat it till the next day. However, one day I was very hungry an decided to place an order quickly without computing if it would be over 20 quids. A south indian guy (sounded like one) took my order (like he was doing me a favor) and said it amounted to 19.7 quids and I said I would pay by card. However, he rudely told me that it was only 19.7 pounds and I needed to order more. Really!? 30 pence? I got my order cancelled (not because I didn't want to spend 30 more pence but because of the inconsiderate nature and rudeness of the staff there). I will have to find another decent place that does delivery now. I am sure a better one exists somewhere round the corner but I have been too lazy to find another.
