I am reluctantly giving a poor review to a very outrageous and expensive meal. We have used Niwan as our go to place for family celebrations, always having the meze, so as it was our anniversary the children organised a surprise takeaway for us, unfortunately...they ordered the wrong meze and here is my issue. Food was delivered late, after getting over the shock of the wrong meal, we discovered that our kids had paid £25 per person for basically dips salad and bread, which was cold. Then I contact niwan to advise the issues, I had no meat and dessert was missing, they advised there was no meat and the dessert would be delivered. According to the menu , there should have been cigar tava, liver but we did not receive any just a slice of halloumi and a slice of sausage ,sucuk. When dessert eventually arrived it was not a mixed dessert, just a tiny 1 inch cube piece of baklava, not coffee either. We were extremely upset our kids had paid so much money for such an outrageous and awful meal. To say they has spent £75 on this was upsetting enough but then to be told by restaurant it wasn’t their fault we ordered the wrong thing made it even worse, they did not acknowledge the issues with the meze feast, and we therefore are leaving this poor review. No one in their right mind would happily pay £25 per person for basically dips, salad and bread. We found an alternative and had an amazing meal delivered from elsewhere. Disappointing just does not cover how we feel about this outrageous expensive meze feast from Niwan.More

we ate in the restaurant before lock down and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and food. This was a birthday so we went online and ordered a delivery meal. It was prompt, delicious, the delivery man was friendly and we loved the meal. Thoroughly recommended

So glad this restaurant still running during Lockdown III. The takeaway was so good! Thanks Niwan and hope you manage to keep going.

Ordered a meal for the first time tonight, and it was brilliant. Turned up on time, food was delicious - amazing flavour. Only knocked a star off as it wasn't massively hot, but 10 minutes in the oven sorted that. Will become a regular thing....Can't wait to get back in the restaurant!More

We called prior to arriving making sure we could get a table and be accommodated. Food came on time, it was okay. We were just about 5-10 mins from finishing our food when an extremely rude waiter tells us they’re closing at 10. He then...looked at his phone and said, you have 3 mins, get out. We were startled to the least and we got our food packed. What kind of disgusting and vile customer service is that? Extremely disappointed at how customers are treated so rudely. Don’t bother spending your money and precious time in such a horrendous environmentMore

I usually love Niwans and gave them a 5 star review last year, but this was my first visit since covid and was disappointed that with the exception of masks, they haven't put any measures in place. Same number of tables, no track and trace...and masks weren't applied properly. I also found the staff who are normally lovely very brash, calling us 'darling' and being very loud. I hope this is a one off, but I will be waiting a while to return for safety reasons.More

Can’t fault this place! To die for food, and staff are absolutely lovely. Once your in the door you don’t feel like you in Wellingborough 😂. Atmosphere is great and just genuinely a great restaurant! And on the plus it’s not over priced. Definitely recommend!...Katie xMore

Since we moved to the area over 3 years ago we have visited many a time! I initially went on a work Christmas meal which was over 10 of us and was so easy to organise and all the food was of amazing quality even...for that many people! I have since visited time and time again with my partner and always have a great meal with tasty food, the wine is all very good and the service is always friendly and excellent! Would thoroughly recommend!More

Sorry I do not know. However, it is a family run restaurant and they are very personal and accommodating.

There’s in street parking at the front of the Resturant or there’s a car park round the corner where Aldi and Matalan are situated
