O dear. Ive always read the reviews on tripadvisor before visiting a place but never left one, but after reading the fake reviews of Likly and Dallus i thought the balance had to be redressed a little. We were trying to go to the Apne and tried to book 2 weeks in advance but they were unfortunately fully booked so we had to make a booking at Temptations. Says it all really, Apne was fully booked, we even went in at 10:00 on the off chance to see if they could squeeze us in without luck. Temptations however was half full. Popadoms were OK but the red and orange glue served with the pickles was not.

Main was supposed to be a Fusion curry of Lamb, Chicken and Prawn. Well you cant get them on trade descriptions as it did only say 'Prawn' not 'Prawns'...there was one of them, 2 squares of chicken and some mince which I suppose was meant to be the Lamb. It looked nice on the plate but wasnt that good when you tasted it. Give them their due though they did give a free drink of something pinkish in 2 large glasses at the end of the meal as it was Christmas week, and a small hot coffee which was nice, but i did go for a curry and that part i wasnt that good. Shame really.

How do I start, on entering we were not greeted with much of a welcome. Our table which I had booked a week before was not ready. When a member of staff did arrive he seemed rushed and far to busy to deal with customers. The food was very average,with the mains tasting all the same. It's a shame that this once wonderful place to eat is now a poor reflection of what it was. On a last note there was not enough staff to serve everyone , just two members.

Very busy the night we were in (Saturday) food was excellent, massive selection on menu. Waiting on staff were friendly and dealt with a table of VERY rowdy and VERY abusive men exceptionally well to make sure they didnt ruin everyone else's meal.
Pricing is spot on. Would highly recommend.
