Enjoyed a lunchtime meal, excellent cuisine, at a reasonable price and good portions, house white wine was ok and 4 glasses cost us £21.80 which was acceptable, however, two friends joined us at the end of the meal for a drink, house white wine was ordered, however, upon checking the bill later on during the day I was charged for 4 glasses of Chablis at a cost of £37, very disappointed at having to pay out an extra £15.20. No further comment is necessary, make of it what you will.

I have always enjoyed coming to Indian Essence, and always leave with a mouth still full of wonderful flavours. The menu is quite exciting, and I look forward to trying something different on each visit. I brought a couple of friends who had not been before, and they were very pleased to be there, and said they would certainly be back,
