I have to say that this is really the worst indian restuarant i have ever been to. We arrived at 19h30 and the restuarant was deserted. We ordered two Biryanis, a garlic nan and two side dishes. The food arrived 20 minutes later and was cold. Besides this, the food was completely bland and lacked any taste. The Curry Sauce with the Biryanis was basically a watery gravy with a few carrots and a potato floating in it. Eating the cold nan was like eating a piece of cardboard. When the manager asked how the food was, we replied in a polite way that it was very tastless. He then proceeded to say that he "had plenty of take away orders that night and no-one else complained. Therefore there can be nothing wrong with the food and it is just us". He also mentioned that he had "been in the restuarant business before I was born and the reason for our complaint was that we did not want to pay the bill becuause my girlfriend ordered too much food!!" This was very rude and made us feel extremely uncomfortable. I understand that the place is reasonably priced, but I find the rudeness and poor food unacceptable. Hence the reason for my writing this review. Lastly, the service charge is hidden in the bill which could lead people to paying this twice. When we asked for this to be removed, the manager replied "I did bring the food to your table, did'nt I", as if he had done us a favour. When one goes out for dinner, it is meant to be a relaxing, enjoyable experience. Papadam is certainly not this...
