Not a good experience
Submitted Sunday, May 2, 2010 - 7:50pm [Dine in]

My Husband and I have been to this restaurant a few times before, and have enjoyed it. However last Friday, when we went again, it was a very different experience. I think the management has changed, as the environment was very different, brightly lit as opposed to the subdued lighting from before. Our table was right in the middle of the restaurant, next to the coffee station, so there was no privacy, but it was busy, and I guess that was the luck of the draw.

What really made the experience a disappointing one was the service. Our server made no attempt to go beyond the absolute basics of taking the order and bringing the food. We both ordered curry, mine was seafood and my husband had lamb. We both agreed it was acceptable but nothing much beyond that. We were deciding whether to have dessert or coffee and my husband had put his credit card beside his plate. The server just came by and grabbed the card without a word and brought the card machine to him. She also stood over him as he entered the numbers. We could not believe it!

We will not be back, and are disappointed as we have had good experiences here in the past.

Disappointing Experience
Submitted Monday, March 9, 2009 - 4:25pm [Dine in]

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant for two reasons - we live close by and we had an Entertainment card. I had read the reviews which were quite varied, but decided to give it a chance.

We were seated quickly, and the menu was brought. Obviously the food choices change from time to time, as the menu items were listed on a blackboard and put on a chair for viewing. This did not include descriptions of how each item was prepared. Our server was new, and although very pleasant, was not too familar with each item. We ordered the veal, and venison, and a bottle of French white wine. The wine could have been more chilled. The food was pleasant, but definitely not spectacular. Both meals looked the same, in a dark sauce, one pretty much tasted the same as the other, except for mild difference in texture of the meat.

We presented the Entertainment card with the credit card for payment, and it was not honoured. We questioned this, and could not really understand the reason given - something like we needed to spend $30 per entree to qualify. I thought perhaps I has missed something in the Entertainment book, but did not want to query this in the restaurant. I was told that I should consider the situation "a blessing as I could return to the restaurant"! I thought this most odd to say the least.

I checked the Entertainment Book on returning home, and the description was clear - "Up to $17 discount when an entree of equal or greater value was ordered" which was the case. I phoned the restaurant, and they agreed, and said to return with my bill and they would rectify the situation. I did this, and received the money, but no apology and no concern at all about what happened. This, to me, seems a very strange way to treat a customer, and I will certainly not be returning to this restaurant.

I would suggest if you have an Entertainment Card you are hoping to use here, to be clear it should be honoured.

My husband and I really enjoy Indian food. Having read the previous reviews, we thought we had found a winner. We decided to dine at home, and ordered take-away. We ordered a Fusion Sampler for a starter, two main courses, rice and Papadums. The Sampler was described as an assortment of four appetizers, what is was was a brown paper bag (no proper container) with an assortment of scraps, looking like left over food, with fat stains on the bag - very unappealing! The two main courses - Bombay Currey (Chicken - hot) and Chicken Tikka Massala (mild-medium) seemed very similar in taste and texture, and with very little chicken in either. The rice was fine, the papadums, despite being packaged separately, were quite broken. The menu states there would be a 10% discount on orders picked up, but that was not offered. All in all, quite an expensive and disappointing meal. We will not be back
