We’ve been going here for several years and have just visited again for my mother in laws birthday. The service never falters and is always top notch along with the food. Arguably the best Indian meal we have had and also so welcoming with nothing too much trouble. Well recommended. They also make a fuss of children and will cook... More

I have been here many times but will not be returning. The food is not as good as it was. There were two couples and the pickle produced was the same as if there were two people and so we had to order a second. The menu is not as extensive as it used to be and one order was... More

I was really looking forward to meeting up here as I love Indian food. My meal was disappointing and we had to wait ages for our main course to arrive. The service was not attentive and the plates were cleared even though one of the group was still eating. One of our group wanted dessert but the creme brûlée was... More

We had a family mothers day lunch at Mem Saab The food tasted very nice but was mostly chicken dishes with one lamb curry which was my favourite. The curry's were all well flavoured but all mild. Which was a shame if you are used to madras hot flavours. A good variety of fruit and 3 or 4 desserts. There... More

Disappointing to say the least, the menu is 'odd' - I don't expect Kangeroo at an Indian restaurant, and I don't want my main and starter both tasting only of garam masala. Won't be visiting again

We celebrated a birthday here. We started with cocktails in the lounge area (from Corkers next door) where we also had time to study the menu. We placed our order before even going through to the restaurant area. It didn't take long for the food to arrive. We enjoyed poppadoms and dips to start followed by the main course which... More

Me and my partner come here when we can, the staff are always friendly. The service is good and the food is great! We did have one occasion where the food was to our fancy however they went and changed it straight away, no problems!! I always recommend this place to people and will continue to do so!

A bit of a weird one. A few days previous to my visit to Mem Saab I ate at Chutney Mary on St James St in London, so perhaps unfairly, I was comparing it to that, And that was fine dining. Mem Saab, on the other hand wasn't. The food was fantastic, but had a curry-house familiarity to it. The... More

We went last Saturday evening with friends. Very good menu and interesting dishes. Everything is extra unfortunately even the dips for pampadam. However the wine list is what you would expect from a restaurant. Tables are spaced very nicely apart from other tables so it's quite private dining. 4 people is around £100..with wine and drinks.
