Went here on the request of an american who wanted a curry while in London and we were restricted to Canary Wharf as destination. Really isn’t a lot of choice and we went for this as the others we knew were not great so thought would try this newer place.
Party of 12 in the restaurant which is at the back of the venue.
- dealt very sensitively with one of our party who for religious reasons couldn’t consume food. They let him bring his own without fuss (Which was fab and not sure all restaurants would be so accommodating) but also dealt amazingly with it on evening. Quite word in ear to understand where it was, when wanted it, how to plate etc
- very attentive to allergy’s and we had some odd ones across the group. Clearly highlighted on the menu what could and couldn’t be consumed to each impacted person
- very tasty food - fresh ingredients, well spiced, cooked well and nicely presented
- dealt with a corked bottle of wine quickly including replacing all the non corked stuff they had ruined by pouring into the glasses without checking - see related improvement point below though
- they had taken a deposit and had charged the card. The person paying was someone else so we had to get the original card recredited as well as paying the full bill. A bit of faff but well handled.
- table staff were very attentive and stand out service wise compared to front of house staff
- nice decor - modern and quite cool.
The could do better
- staff on door were slow to deal with our party despite standing around not dealing with others. Seemed only one of them could attend to our restaurant booking
- no one took our coats. We ended up at table with all our bags and coats and trying to accommodate them. Then eventually found someone and took what seemed an age to check them in. On way out was even worse and we ended up playing cloak room assistant ourselves
- only would allow set menu. A bit restrictive when you take into account combination of tastes in a big group.
- when will restaurants learn not to pour a new bottle of wine over an old. If it’s corked it ruins the whole glass and wastes time sorting out. Pour a little of new one and have someone taste it first.
- food portions are on smaller size but it’s enough for most. A few people did however feel shorted and wanted more. If we hadn’t of been on a set menu this would have been easier I think to deal with as could have just ordered a few extra dishes.
- modern interior means quite noisy as not a lot of material to soak up the chat in what is quite a large room.
