I went as a party of eleven to celebrate my partner's birthday on the 25th of August.
We had a fantastic time! The atmosphere of the place was great - helped by belly-dance sessions throughout the evening. The staff were all extremely friendly and unusually seemed to be enjoying themselves as well. They were a laugh and nothing seemed to phase them whatever we asked for.
The best thing was the food, however. It was exceptional. Lots of variety and really tasteful. I was surprised how inexpensive the evening was. Great value for money and well worth a visit.
Just returned from Meadow Farm after making the mistake of not looking at the carvery before ordering. It was awful. The vegetables were kept in bain maries and were a pile of mush. The mashed potato looked and had the texture of wallpaper paste. The stuffing balls were so salty they were inedible. And the gravy had no taste whatsoever.
I find it hard to comprehend how an eating establishment can manage to serve up food that doesn't taste of anything and not know how bad it is or doesn't care. I didn't go there expecting 5-star food but I didn't expect to be served up a plate of inedible, bland crap that even a dog would turn its nose up at.
I would suggest all the staff sit down and eat this stuff themselves and see how they like it!
After recently visiting the Swan I had to give it a 5-star review.
My wife had chicken and leak pie and I had minced beef and onion, and may I say the comment below is ridiculous. My wife said it was just the right balance of leak and chicken. Mine was to die for - full of flavour. And may I also say that the staff were incredible, with a smile on their face constantly and quick service.
Very well done and I shall be visiting again soon.
Have eaten at this restaurant many times and thoroughly enjoyed it. The chicken and spinach pancake is to die for. My husband had the calzone the last time we went and said it was the best he had ever had.
The two-for-one menu on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday is real value for money.
I highly recommend this place as you will not be disappointed.
Fantastic food, in fact the best balti hut I have visited. Staff are so friendly and I've never felt so at home with really authentic cooking.
I recommend the "chicken methi" and "chicken garlic".
5 stars from me.
We decided to go to this restaurant as a family and were really surprised by the warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food was delicious and all freshly cooked and the service was excellent. I would have no hesitation in going again and recommend it to anyone.
Good enough as a restaurant but be very aware of being overcharged if you are ordering a takeaway. We have always been overcharged, too regularly it seems for this to be a coincidence, most recently by £3.48.
Although we have learned to check and successfully challenge the bill, this has annoyed us so much that we have decided to stop using the restaurant and to take every opportunity to alert others to what appears to us to be a blatantly dishonest practice.
I am loathe to write a bad review. In fact this is the first I have ever written and it is something I do not take lightly, I can assure you.
In my experience over the last 40 years of eating out, if you have a complaint the management at least try and come to some agreement or at least make some kind of conciliatory offer. However, at this establishment when the food is served cold and you ask to see the manager, who turns up 20 minutes later and tells you he has been too busy (when there are only 2 other tables occupied on a Saturday night I may add) they have a "sod off" kind of attitude.
I will never ever eat at this place again, there are 3 or 4 other Indian restaurants at Gleadless where the surroundings may not be so plush but the management far more accommodating and the food not only cheaper but better.
This was my first and last visit to this eating hole (restaurant does not really describe the place). I have often looked at the review comments with scepticism, as there are always bad reviews and I used to think that some people wanted perfection and were over critical but I am totally disgusted with the level of service and the response of the so-called management. Eat here at your peril.
Very good food, service and atmosphere and reasonably priced. This is our second visit to Chutney and I can't fault it at all. We will go back without any hesitation. The staff are very friendly and very efficient.
Just returned home from the Indus restaurant and have to say what a lovely evening we have had.
We weren't aware when we booked that Tuesday night is buffet night and we all decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed. The food is really nice and the service was really good. We didn't feel rushed and the staff weren't over attentive, as we often find in Indian restaurants.
We will definitely be returning soon. The price is £9 a head. There were 4 of us and we had 2 drinks each and it came to £50, but we have a Taste card so the entire meal came to just £32. Bargain!
Well done Indus. We will be back!
From the outside it looks like any other cafe, nothing spectacular, but when the food came it was obviously made by someone who cares and takes an interest. The home-made fish fingers were delicious and the presentation was very good.
One of my family's favourite restaurants, brilliant food, we always order the scallops and asparagus dish, which is fragrant and delicious. The waiter's recommendation have always been excellent, too.
Tables of all sizes are available and we have always been able to get a table even on busy nights. We often go to celebrate birthdays and exam results.
Prices are about average for a Chinese takeaway. Set menus are available for a reasonable price.
The staff could not be more helpful, once a waiter spilled a tray of drinks and replaced them all and gave us a free (and quite large) whiskey to apologise.
Comfortable atmosphere, air conditioned but not too cold. Comfortable modern decor and a nice atmosphere, the restaurant is popular with families. There is a seating area near the door and bar which is handy if you are meeting people there.
We have never been disappointed and Ka China remains a firm favourite.
My girlfriend and I love it here. The staff are friendly, the food's great, comes quick, never too busy, though don't know why.
We had two starters, two mains, two rice, cheese naan, chips and two desserts, and the bill only came to £30. You can't go wrong.
Very friendly and helpful staff, the food was lovely, and fresh ingredients used, very reasonable prices, will definitely visit again.
Fabulous food and fabulous service. Would definitely recommend it.
Had a takeaway from Chutney last weekend, it was supposed to be butter chicken. All it was is tandoori chicken, they did not even make a butter sauce. All they did was pour watered-down cream over the chicken. When the red tandoori seeped up through the cream it looked and tasted disgusting. The naan breads were obviously warmed up from the day before, as they were like cardboard.
I have had curries from numerous places and have never had to complain. When I called them to tell them how bad it was they were not interested. £20 wasted but I'll never consider using them again, as there are several restaurants in the area and they are all better.
Went to review this new restaurant, formerly a martial arts centre, now revamped and redecorated giving it modern ambience with a Mediterranean twist.
All the food served was suitable given the price range. As starters, we ordered sarma (of which they had run out) which we replaced with dolma - a stuffed aubergine with rice and pine kernels, borek - filo pastry stuffed with feta, satsuka - a salad of aubergine with potato, tomato and herbs, and olives. All of these were satisfactory, but didn't manage to impress, though the satsuka was the best.
We had vegetarian musakka (their spelling, not mine) and the sea bream, both of which were good, though the rice with the musakka was a little too spicy for our palate. The bream was excellent, tender and moist.
Desserts were baklava and peynirli kunefe, a kind of cheesy, syrup dish with filo pastry. The baklava was good, but my peynirli kunefe (given they used mozzarella) had a distinct taste of blue cheese.
We both had coffee, and I had their Turkish Coffee, which was as good as I've had before at other locations.
The wine menu was reasonable, but the Turkish wines were mislabelled on the menu. Not a tragedy, but might be more serious in future if they start stocking vintage wines.
All in all not bad for a restaurant that has only been open 1 month. However, a little staff training to improve efficiency (each course or request took 10 - 30 minutes to happen) would improve the whole experience.
I think this will be well worth another visit 6 months down the line to see if they have ironed out the teething problems. 5.5/10
Great food and lovely, friendly staff.
This was my 3rd visit to the restaurant and I have to say I was extremely disappointed.
The table was booked for 7:30PM. When we got in there was one larger table in already and one other couple. Within 30 minutes the restaurant was full and it was quickly obvious that the kitchen was over stretched.
We ordered starters, which took 45 minutes to arrive. Then at 9:15PM, when we still hadn't received our mains and asked, the waitress merely pointed to the kitchen as to say they were just coming out. No apology for the wait at all.
When she came to clear our table, we mentioned that we weren't happy, she said she thought that as we were drinking wine and enjoying ourselves we would be OK. I don't class an hour-and-45-minute wait for food as OK. She also said that they struggled because everyone came at once. In my opinion this is poor management. If you know you cannot handle a full restaurant then stagger the table bookings. That is not an acceptable excuse.
The poor service really was such a shame because the food is lovely. All the waitress needed to do for us to leave happy would have been a simple apology.
Delicious Italian food, interesting menu, not just your run-of-the-mill pizzas. The food was fresh, delicious and service was friendly and welcoming. Lovely spicy garlic bread!
