Was at nec with my daughter for the clothes show and went here on recommendation. Food was good but unfortunately we felt cold with door being opened all of the time with people coming in, going out and picking up take outs. Obviously we turned up with no reservation so cannot grumble too much, but still cold. Time to leave... More

Table was booked for 7pm. Finally shown to table 7:35pm. Long time between given menus and placing order. When food finally turned up the waiters did not know what they were serving. After a huddle and a stir of the curries they served them. King prawns were definitely lacking in my curry. Food was OK but would not be rushing... More

Went to this restaurant was 21colleagues and was very disappointed. Service was slow, wrong food offered to a number of our group and after quite a delay they finally got the order correct. Food quality was good when it finally arrived but this did not make up for the delay as some guests had finished their food before other guests... More

Having looked forward to some wonderful food as visited over the years when at the NEC, was very disappointed in the whole experience. They overbook so in turn if you go for you allotted time and the people are not finished you have to wait and nowhere really as the bar area is very small. The food took over 90... More

Have been here a few times when at the NEC for exhibitions, always had great food, very generous portions!!! Always busy though so be prepared to wait, even if you have booked. Would recommend getting there earlier in the evening rather than later. Will definitely go back.

Tried the specials rather than the Balti well worth the extra money ,but if you do try the specials be prepared to wait its well worth it. Forgot my coat and before i got in the car the manager ran across the restaurant car park ,the main road and the pub car park very nice of him.
