I have just come from eating at The Modern. The ambience in it was great, relaxed and comfortable. Everything is done well with some nice secluded dining at the back and room for large groups at the front. No complaints about the food either. Cooked well and we'll spiced. Possibly could improve either the quality of the chicken used or... More

The menu is not informative enough. The food has no Indian flavor in it and the house staff replied to this comment as it is normal since not many Indians are eating there. The saag is not as a traditional ''spinach curry''. Rather, instead the dish looked like steamed spinach preheated in the microwave. The dish sag ponier does not... More

Chicken Madras plain, fairly hot but no spices. Chicken tikka should have a reddish tinge not brown.Also should have some spice to it. Overall food pretty poor and this is one of the better Indians in Lincoln. Madras 4 out of 10 Tikka 1 out of 10

Me and my friend went on a saturday night just before christmas. The food was lovely and the service was good.
