We dined here as part of a large party, pre-booked a table for 8pm and arrived a few minutes late to find that our table wasn't ready although there the place wasn't busy. Planned to have a curry before moving on to a couple of the local pubs for a few beers afterwards but due to being in the restaurant for three hours we had to curtail the night with just one stop afterwards. Although there was a few people in the restaurant it wasn't overly busy but the staff didn't seem to have much impetus for good service.
The food was adequate, nothing too special but took what seemed an age to get to the table. We had asked for everything to be brought out to the table at once rather than to have starters and then the main and although we ordered around 8:30 the food didn't arrive at the table until after 10 o'clock and some originally didn't arrive at all. when asked where the missing food was the waitress was fairly abrupt and said that it hadn't been ordered although one of our party was left with only a naan bread from their order. One of the rounds of drinks also didn't materialise either.
What with the only other Indian restaurant in the immediate area closing down you would have thought that the Taste of India would have been bending over backwards to impress people who wouldn't usually eat at this particular restaurant. Based on my experiences I certainly wouldn't rush back to the Taste of India and would rather make the extra trip to one of the Indian restaurants a little further away.
In fairness to the owner, when we made our annoyances and complaints made he was accommodating enough to give us a reduced bill and discount some of the food off. Whilst it went some way to appease us, I still wouldn't say the staff did enough to tempt me back.
Overall was very disappointed in the quality of the food and the service we received.
