Just an absolutely fantastic restaurant- in every way...oh could do coffee for after though
Really lovely restaurant, friendly staff. Interesting menu, full of unusual dishes. All were really tasty but the dal makhani was particularly yummy.
It was a good experience. Chilli Cheeseballs are a must!
Food was great. Lots of lovely flavour and spice. Excellently presented. Staff were friendly and attentive. Good ambience and unique decor. 100% would go there again to eat again. Thanks for wonderful evening 👍🏾
Nice ambience and scrumptious food. Very nice service by staff
Went to celebrate a birthday midweek, its a cheerful and relaxed place, service was very good, food was great, we ordered quite a variety of the dishes so we could all try something and all of them went down very well. We will be going again.
Great little restaurant, food is delicious, great service and reasonably priced
Authentic food presented with a modern twist. Great select of vegetarian and vegan
We had a lovely lunch - plenty of choice and great tasty food! If anything it was a little too much LOL
It was my friend's first time to Chai Naasto and she loved it too!
I'll definitely be back, but perhaps in the evening when it's busier!
Food comes exceptionally quickly so don’t expect a lingering meal. But it was all delicious and the service was great.
Food was ridiculous, staff were attentive and even gave us a free glass of bubbles for our anniversary. Would definitely recommend and will be back!
A lovely little hidden gem of a place!
We've been here a few times so coming this time on a Sunday night just after New Year i could understand it being so quiet. It didn't have much atmosphere because of that but it was expected. Food as always was excellent and plentiful. Service attentive and friendly.
Love this place. Great food and great value so keep coming back.
Excellent food, service was great, love it here myself but this was our first trip with the kids! Children’s menu went down a treat so looking forward to our return visits!
We enjoyed the evening very much. The ambience was gemuetlich and the servive andolitely excellent.
Only problem was they had "run out of lamb". I thought this was poor. How can you not have gosht in a non'veg restaurant??
Great food, different from the norm. Staff needed to be bit more attentive. Being repeat customers, we were happy but we took 5 new guests who were asking questions which the waiter couldn’t answer. Otherwise great food.
We had a lovely meal,with helpful recommendations from our waiter,when we were ordering.
Unrushed service,with time to relax over a great meal.
Food and service very good-lively atmosphere-have been before and would recommend
Very disappointed at the limited menu whereby there were no dishes containing lamb available. There was also no paneer cheese so none of the dishes containing paneer were available either. So it felt very restricted and as if the restaurant was failing fast not to have such main menu items available.
I had a friend down for dinner and it was rather embarrassing to be honest.
Food was delicious ! Sharing plates, loads of vege too !! Service was great and good advice in terms of amount of food to order ! Would definitely go back !
Friendly staff, excellent food and a really nice feel to the place. Highly recommended.
Food v tasty as always.
We had early dinner so v quiet when we were there. I'm sure v busy an hour or so later though.
The food was brilliant and the service attentive and quick. We had lots of small tasty dishes with good recommendations from waiter. However the restaurant was chilly, with little atmosphere and the toilets were dirty. I haven’t been here for around 2 yrs and I feel it’s lost it’s sparkle a bit. If they can work on the negatives I may be back
Buzzing restaurant with good ambience. It was our first time & we would have welcomed more guidance about the dishes which are not the usual Indian restaurant ones as this is a street food eatery. Our waiter wasn't really helpful when we asked some questions. We chose too much fried food which we don't really like. The lamb meatballs & chicken curry were very tasty though.
Though its a trendy place, the food was over spicy or underwhelming, almost as if the cook was having a bad night. I'm sure that it was a one off experience.
I don't understand why I looked at my bill receipt later and found out that I paid 20% service charge, I'm pretty sure it suppose to be 12.5%. Please future customers be aware!
Overall fair to poor. Wouldn't recommend it there are better Indian restaurant that don't mess with around with this tapas nonsense.
Very bad customer service the waitress took part of the order wrong then took the wrong money!
Love this place, excellent staff so personable and professional highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 100%
Love this place here all the time and will back on Sunday I love it so much
Wonderful food & service. Fantastic & friendly staff who can’t do enough for you. Amazing cocktails. Had a fantastic birthday dinner with my friends . Would definitely recommend.
Great food nice atmosphere
Food was beyond expectation.
so delicious & considered.
Fabulous food and service as always!
Amazing food, service and wine! I’ll be back again and will be showing this gem of a restaurant off to friends and family! Awesome
The decor is great but it was a little cold and most of us kept our outer layers on. It was also quite brightly lit. The staff were very smiley and helpful although I felt we were a little rushed to order food and the plates were cleared away before we’d really finished. The food was tasty, varied and the portions were decently sized. I’d definitely go back but I’d wear warmer clothes.
Great food and a great atmosphere! We will definitely be coming back again soon!
Great food love the chilli cheese bites! But pricy for the portion sizes though
We were being rushed to finish our food. Every time we finished a plate it was removed from the table. In the space of 30 mins, we were approached seven times to remove finished plates or glasses. It made the whole dining experience disappointing. If the restaurant wasn’t able to cater for a booking at 9:30 then it shouldn’t make it available. The reason why we were being rushed was because one of the servers wanted to go home. Even though there were many people left in the restaurant. I won’t be coming back here.
Really nice clean restaurant with friendly staff and great food. Also if it’s your birthday you get a free cocktail 🍹
Sadly unable to write a good review as we left before the food was served. I was very much looking forward to trying this restaurant and all was very pleasant until our waiter arrived. Firstly he had trouble understanding us especially when we asked him to explain the menu so we ordered drinks whilst we studied the menu. On the drinks order was two vodka and diet cokes. When they arrived the coke bottles were two years out of date and tasted like it. We sent them back and were told the replacements would go on the bill. Had to argue the case for that mistake. Then a jack Daniels arrived at our table and had to tell them we didn't order it. Then we ordered our food and the first thing that arrived was the wrong order. Realising the night would be a disaster we left.
