Lovely service who catered to our dietary requirements without fuss. Restaurant is cosy and beautiful. The people are clearly passionate about the food they serve.

We didn’t find the food special to justify the price, specially the prawns were very bland. The waiter got our orders wrong however he fixed it up quickly. If you go there on 50% off your constantly reminded by the staff that you’re dining at 50% off which doesn’t make for a pleasant experience.

Food is fantastic, service is fantastic this is our third time back and even under new management it was great. Would be nice if they had a better selection of beer, corona, heineken etc.
Hi Ed, Thank you for enjoying Lavendra. In terms of beer - we've run out of demand for other beers after installing the tap for Kingfisher. Next time you book please let me know which beer you prefer and I'd be happy to organise this for you.

The menu was explained in detail which was helpful when choosing our meals. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend the chickpea salad if available.
Thanks Karyn, It was a pleasure to have you - see you again soon.

2nd time being to our “local” Indian place to try out different items in the menu. There are other Indian restaurants that I consider to be much better at this price point. Only dish I would highly recommend was the Rajasthani Laal Maas. The other dishes were not to our liking, specially the samosa chaat and chicken afgani. The chicken was over cooked and very rubbery.

A great place to enjoy fresh, expertly cooked, quality Indian food. The venue has a pleasant aspect, and great atmosphere. The wait-staff are attentive but not intrusive. I recommend this place for small numbers - couples and small family groups. We will go again.
