The service was appalling. The food (when it eventually arrived) was no more than average at best. Wouldn't return considering there are much nicer places to eat in the local area.

Just next door and across the road from the Swan Hotel, this restaurant is very pleasant, reasonably priced and serves all the standard favourites along with some other less well known exotic dishes. I booked a table in advance but on a Sunday evening in February it probably wasn't necessary.

Every thing was too much trouble. Seemed offended from the moment we walked in , perhaps This isn't child friendly? They tried to sit us next to the draughty door, when we asked to be moved, the restaurant was 95% empty, they did so with faces so sour they could have curdled milk. The rudeness continued throughout the meal, hardly... More

Food ok but service appalling. Waiters more interested in answering phone than serving customers who were there. Stopped serving our table halfway through pouring drinks, had menu chucked onto my coat and attitude towards me was awful, funnily enough were polite to my husband. Wouldn't hurry back

Food was of a decent standard, although I’ve had better and it was not really any different from the run of the mill Indian restaurants that adorn every high street in the country. Service was good, staff were friendly and portion sizes were decent. We visited mid-week and the place was virtually empty, although there appeared to be a reasonable... More

We often go to Memsaab with a group of friends - sometimes for a birthday or just to treat ourselves. It is the best Indian restaurant in the whole county and we are lucky to have it nearby. I hope we are not too noisy when we go because the staff are so gentlemanly and polite. Great service and great... More

Had dinner here one evening for a friends birthday and we had a fabulous time! Lovely intimate atmosphere and great service are just the beginning as the food is simply perfect.We had a good selection of dishes and it really was very hard to pick a favourite, Definitely planning a return visit...such a treat.

The restaurant is a really clean looking, welcoming space. The two men that were working were so polite and easy going. I placed a takeaway order, but was not asked to pay but to take a seat in a comfy leather chair, whilst waiting the waiter chatted and soon my order appeared. It was not only the best takeaway (Indian)... More
