Excellent food and service. Always a great choice to go
Quality Indian restaurant, Attentive service and good food. Difference is you can see the skewer marks in the meat that has been in a tikka oven which is not always the case. Railway Lamb very tender with a nice heat not sour or sharp. £3.50 for a small diet coke is a little lumpy as is additional cost for the dips tray with the popadoms (what would you do without it and its not like you finish it, it just gets topped up and moved on). Overall a good modern Indian with better food ambience and service. We were £25 per head with no starter and only 2 beers.
The service wasn’t very good. The waiter wasn’t rude but he was not friendly or particularly informative. Just wanted to get our orders quickly and move to the next table. We thought the chutney tray was good and shared the garlic prawn and mushrooms which were vey good however it came with only two prawns. I had the lamb shank and thought it was delicious, while my wife had the rail car lamb and thought the meat was chewy and tasteless. I had a bite of it and thought the sauce was tasty however definitely not tender. Side of cauliflower was good but the menu description did not mention peppers, which my wife doesn’t like. The waiter then didn’t do himself any favors when he took away her wine glass when it still had a couple of sips. Just whisked it away and was gone before she could even object! I gave it a 4 only because the lamb shank was so good.
No. 7 is a superb up-market restaurant specialising in quality Indian cuisine. Very friendly greeting on arrival, quickly checked my booking and showed us to our table. (Also number 7). Attentive service from staff and helpful assistance given. The quality of food couldn't be faulted ... indeed, a member of our party commented it was the best he had ever tasted. We all felt the same. After our meal and some friendly chat we were served complimentary coffee and cakes. A very nice and welcome touch. The prices are a bit higher than the "norm" but it's well worth the extra. Will we return? Most certainly.
Hmm, not the usual standard of food we thought. Not having been for about 4 months it seems the portions are a little smaller and maybe the chef has changed as we thought our meals were a bit dry compared to what we’re used to. We both had a shashlik dish but even the paratha was wafer thin compared to the past. There were a few parties going on so that might have made a difference but we did feel we’d been forgotten about before ordering our main courses. Still, we’ll give another go having enjoyed around 30 visits in the past. We all have our of days!!
The food is always great at No. 7 Temple, but we had a few issues with the staff on this visit. The waiter struggled to understand us when we explained we didn't need drinks and were just waiting for a tonic water to go with the gin - which somebody was sorting. He bought us a glass of tonic water!!!! The restaurant apologised and said it would be removed from the bill .... it wasn't!!! When we came to pay the waitress handed my husband the credit card machine with the question on the screen of whether we wanted to add gratuities ... luckily my husband had spotted on the bill that this had already been included by the restaurant!!!! Could have got a double whammy .... not impressed!
On arrival we were met by the front of house guy who showed us to our table. After about 10 minutes a waiter came over to ask if we’d ordered, he took our order. The wines are overpriced, ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir,£32. The food arrived, was nice although we had to wait until halfway through eating to receive our paratha, it was burnt. Asked for another jug of water, didn’t arrive. Around 4 different waiters brought our food & wine. They were not attentive at all, not one asked how the meal was & we paid nearly £100, the service charge is automatically included which brings me to think this is why the waiters & waitresses are not interested as they know they are receiving a good tip. We left with no one saying goodbye as the front of house guy was no longer there. It was my fiancé’s bithday dinner and the experience was very disappointing. Loud music, overpriced & will not be returning.
