After arriving for a late dinner, my partner and I were seated, and had only just begun to look at the menu when we were interrupted 3 times by waiters asking for our order. We ordered, and the food arrived in about 3 minutes. Not surprisingly, it was food that had clearly been sitting in the kitchen for some time. The garlic naan was dry, and the tandoori roti tasteless. The chicken korma was just a mash of cream with little spice or flavour, and the mysore mutton was dry as a bone and a tiny portion.
Worst part though, as soon as our meals arrived, we were told the kitchen was closed so no more orders. However, it was not just the kitchen that was closing, it was the restaurant. The staff promptly walked to each table and put down the check. We received ours despite just receiving our food, and had also just started drinking our jug of beer. The waiters then came past several times to check if the bill had been paid, starting switching off lights and piling up chairs behind my partner.
A waiter then came over to demand that we pay the bill, to which we replied we hadn't even finished our meal or drinks. He demanded again "Just pay it". That was when I decided it was high time to leave. We left our food and drinks, and I took the bill to the counter and advised that I wouldn't be paying for the entire jug, just 2 glasses. They did not want to do the discount but could tell we were horrified by the service so complied.
I can completely understand if a restaurant is closing up and they tell you at the start. But this place go us no warning, took our orders, gave us dry old food, and then demanded we pay before even getting a chance to eat our meal.
Digustingly rude and we will never return. The food was awful so it's no loss.
