The Monzil Tandoori

To whom it may concern,

This used to be the best Indian restaurant in Barnes by a mile. Recently however there has been a decline in both the quality of food and the integrity of the staff.

My most recent visits were marred by an incredibly rude, surly and flagrantly dishonest waiter. He is relatively new to the otherwise friendly team.

His rudeness is such that I shall not be returning the restaurant. He rushed us through our meal and at one point - clearly wishing to close the restaurant early - held his head in his hands sighing. Perhaps it would have been better simply to say it was too late for us to eat rather than allow us in only to treat us with contempt.

On a separate occasion having somewhat churlishly left some cash in the restaurant I approached the waiter who had served us the following day to ask if he or any of the other staff had retrieved my money. (I had already added a gratuity on my credit card.)

My attempts to retrieve the money were greeted with feigned ignorance.

I would have been willing to overlook the first incident concerning this nasty waiter but dishonesty is unacceptable.

I shall not return until he goes and until the loos are cleaned and renovated. Local restaurantsí reputations can be damaged very quickly so I suggest that action is taken before the residents of Barnes decide to go elsewhere for an Indian.

Yours faithfully,

A once loyal customer
