Saturday night three of us dined here as a treat as it's our favourite Indian food place. The food, as always, was lovely, tasty and fresh, however we felt a bit let down by a few points.
There was the tired and worn leather seat of the chair, the 10p sized hole in the table cloth in the centre of the table- something that was blatantly obvious.
Service was polite and helpful as always.
The disappointing thing about the food was that it wasn't piping hot. Dishes and bowls it was served in were cold and the food was luke warm, which wasn't great.
As regular customers, mainly takeaway, we were slightly deflated by our meal at the restaurant because of the small things, which all added up. Attention to details and bit of a tidy up of tired things would be recommended.

Despite a table being booked for 8pm, they couldn't seat us until 8.30. This is despite telling them that one of the party of nine had to leave at 9pm. Even once seated, they refused to take a food order for over 15 minutes meaning the person leaving couldn't eat dinner.

Additionally the soft drinks were flat & despite sending the first one back, the second one came out just as flat.

Either employ more staff or don't take the booking if you can't provide a good level of service.

A fine, established restaurant which has been on site for the best part of 30 years. Staff are polite, friendly and the service good. The food as always was served fresh and in good time. You might have guessed that I have been here before and I have. My family are regular users of the restaurant, but I have never written down my thoughts. The only drawback I have ever encountered is the possibility of other customers being a tad noisy. The restaurant is not big which makes for a good atmosphere most of the time. All in all a good place to eat if you like Asian food.

Mo has recently refurbished the Taste of India and done it extremely well. The décor now definitely matches the excellent food. The refurbishment has made the restaurant feel more welcoming and comfortable. If you haven't seen the refurbishment I strongly suggest you go. And it is by far the best Indian for miles around.
