Saw the great reviews on this site, love good indian food so went along with high expectations. We ordered a couple of martinis and some mineral water and some wine. After 40 minutes and two reminders we got our mouthwash flavoured martinis but never saw the water. Mixed grill to start was OK (although we never saw the promised raita) but by now we're over an hour in the restaurant. The waiter forgot which wine we'd ordered and, even after reminding him, took two more prompts and 25 minutes to deliver. We shared a chicken jalfrezi for the main and asked for it medium hot. We received a chicken dish which tasted like a canned sauce and had no indian spices in it whatsoever. We asked them to order a taxi (which they forgot to do) and received an unordered, inedible rice pudding while we waited. This restaurant is just down the road from Handi but a million miles away in every other respect. If our experience sounds OK to you, go quick - it won't be there long!
