Great dining experience. Vermilion is one of our favourite restaurants in the northwest and always a hit for special occasions. The food, service and ambience is impeccable. 10/10

Mediocre at best. Slow service and cheap tasting food. Chewy lamb and gristly chicken. The rice was fine. Expensive for the quality we received. Style over substance.

This place is all about the settings and NOT the food....our starters were overdone..my Sesame Prawns were like rubber and chewy, my partners Serk Kebabs were dry and over-done and crumby and the ends were hard...my daughters Basket of Beit were all dry chewy, rubbery and over cooked.
The Desi Lamb was basically Rogan Josh, i would reccomend for the bar and drinks bit not food..very over priced for what you get.

I would recommend if for the food which was excellent in my opinion. The only issue was that the place was understaffed for dinner rush. He had to wait for 40 mins just to place our order. The ambiance was nice but the noise level was very high. It was surprisingly affordable and that combined with delicious food I give it a high rating.

Beautiful place , food was lovely .
Service was a bit slow but it was very busy so this is probably why . Would recommend it’s great location next to the Etihad Stadium , we was going to see the spice girls it made such a difference finding somewhere nice to eat which we didn’t have to walk to far too .

Having booked a business lunch for 5 people, we were greeted with the fact that the kitchen would be closing in 2 minutes so could we be quick ordering food. Ordered pompadoms told could not have any and we could not order sweets as kitchen closed. 2pm booking on friday. Poor service leaving bad taste.

Venue was beautiful! I would have given a 4star for this alone but the experience and food was quiet disapointing. Food was not worth the price at all. Staff either kept asking if ready to order even after stating allow extra time. Then litterally ignored for next 20minutes. The drink was standard and not worth it. Overall experience standard.

Food is incredible however they weren’t prepared for the volume of people dining before the concert at the Etihad. The staff looked stressed and we had to wait 1hour 30 for our mains.

From the moment we were escorted to our table we were treated very curtiously. What ever you required you were given. The food was the best we have ever had. It was melt in your mouth gorgeous and nothing was left on our plates which is very unusual. We have a favourite curry restaurant which we thought was outstanding. The vermilion put it to shame. A fantastic night with top class service. Couldn't thank them enough.

This restaurant has an excellent ambience which has clearly taken much thought and effort. There was a live sitar player which also added to this. Unfortunately it is badly let down by terrible service. Our meal was spoiled due to poor coordination. The waiters had no idea what was going on, mains coming before starters and drinks arriving at the end. They also kept bringing wrong orders to several tables. The food was nice overall and reasonably priced for this calibre of restaurant. Unfortunately the service is such a letdown that I, personally, will not be returning

I had a friend over from India - He gave the food 10 out of 10 said best biryani he has had in this country. The service was second to none. The ambience was relaxing. Highly recommend.

Booked on opentable on route to the restaurant and had a confirmed booking but when we got there we were told they were fully booked! What is the point of having opentable if it's not linked up to the restaurants live system!

Great food....great decor....friendly staff although a bit too keen at times....fairly quiet for a Friday night which wasn't a problem for my boyfriend and myself....don't really rate the cocktails we had.....saying that we will definitely be going again.
