Completely bemused by this 'restaurant'. Arrived middle of the week during slow service period. To our surprise the food arrived within five minutes after orders - never had food served so fast(!) before. Thought we'd been given another customer's order.. Queried this with management, who was very polite etc but openly admitted bulk of food is pre-cooked during their lunch... More

Been a few times with work as the food is more to their taste. The main problem is that it is expensive for what it is. £15.00 for a main meal is shocking. If you like Asian food you might not mind but you could get far better for less in a pub.

We reserved our table and were seated immediately. The waiters were very helpful, friendly and attentive. We ordered two starters, two sizzler and mojito's. Food arrived within a reasonable time and it was fab. The starters were tasty, the portions were large enough for two people to share. The sizzlers were fantastic, served very very hot as expected. We ordered... More

Disgusting! We ordered one Tandoori Mixed Grill and some other meals. My wife found a hair on Tandoori Mixed Grill and we sent the meal returned. The manager tried to solve the issue by offering us £5 back where the price of meal is £13.95 and he tried to say the hair from one of our heads. We never going... More

We went to Sizzling Palate as now and again I have a craving for this type of cuisine. We had our 7 month old with us and I have to say behaved impeccably!! This restaurant over the years has served up some tasty sizzlers and was one of the first to have steak, rice, vegetables, noodles and pasta on the... More

There was 3 of us and the restaurant was empty - there was a couple seated near the window and a family of 3 sat at the side, must have been over 10 tables we could have been seated , instead we were seated at a table at the very front of restaurant suitable for 2 people. They brought another... More

It was my first time visiting sizzling palate and I was greeted by a man a foot away from the front entrance asking for money, although he didn't work there he had more personality and friendlier than the waiters at sizzling palate. When we entered we wasn't greeted by a friendly, smiling waiter who proactively enquired about how you’re doing... More

Having given this place a wide berth due to the issues regarding hygiene we decided to give it another try. We booked a table as there was a few of us and we arrived on time. Our table was ready but the manager wouldn't seat us until 2 delayed friends from our group arrived and he informed us if they... More
