After reading the last few reviews about the quality of the food, I am very glad that they called to tell us they couldn't deliver. Ordered at 19:00 on a Saturday through Just Eat. Called 18 minutes after the order was accepted to say that due to car issues it would be at least 90 minutes. We offered to collect,... More

We've eaten from here here numerous times previously, but probably not for 4-6 months, and we like iot because of the half and half options, but mainly because the food was so tasty. Well, this weekend they were terrible. Never a worse meal have i had. Bland, unidentifiable meat soup, rock hard chicken, poor gravy. Just really bad. Have you... More

This has to be the worst curry I have had in years. Three different curries ordered and very similar in taste: watery, no flavour, and no heat at all. Even the pickle tray was disappointing and nan bread far to doughy! Won't be using the Clay Oven again and I'm tempted to drive to the restaurant to ask for my... More

Please bear in mind that this was last year: Went here on a "all you can eat" night but selected off the ordinary menu. Eating here was a BIG mistake. Greasy, tepid food, disinterested serving staff, redeemed only by empathetic young woman manning the till.... First time ever we have been unable to eat anything put before us! Never again.... More

Food Ok more limited choice than previously. Not the same without Hussain ! Very good when it started now only available four days a week. As previously stated the cost went up very quickly.

Choice of four. A pack of profiteroles put on a dinner plate. Just left on the counter all night. If this is the cleanliness of public... More

I have visited this establishment on a number of occasions before and after it has been transformed into a buffet restaurant. An extensive variety of starters and mains to suit everyone's taste. The good is extremely good value for money and beautifully cooked. They even serve pizza to the kids delight, The only slight down side is the limited parking... More
