Located inside an 18th century former public house on School Street in Mosborough, The Vine Indian Restaurant has been tastefully restored, creating the perfect setting for a special Indian meal with its elegant decor complete with luxurious red carpets and white and red tablecloths. The menu at The Vine Indian Restaurant brings together dishes from all over the subcontinent. Whet your appetite with some garlic mushroom puree or onion bhaji, before moving on to some tandoori king prawn shashlik, the North Indian garlic chilli, or a house special like the lamb tikka shorisha or the noni chicken (chicken cooked with Indian cheese, roasted onions and green peppers in medium spices, garnished with coriander and topped off with cheddar cheese). To guarantee a table at this local hotspot, booking ahead is recommended.
Great food. Friendly staff Myself and girlfriend Poppadoms n pickle tray followed by onion bhaji and chicken chatt. Main course. king prawn masala and chicken jalfrezi. Sides of Boiled rice with keema nan. Honey pot ice cream desert.. Everything was very nice especially the Onion bhaji were crisp n flavoursome. Chicken chatt was best I've ever tasted.
Excellent meal yet again at The Vine. Staff were very welcoming, attentive, helpful (suggesting improvements to our choices!). Restaurant was not too busy, atmosphere was really good. The food here is consistently excellent, I would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.
Brilliant. Good service and lovely food - what more can anyone ask for? Only downside was lack of Indian desserts but as we were full it didn't really matter.
The meal was fresh and delicious and the staff attentive and helpful. A lovely clean relaxing environment we had a lovely evening . I will be visiting again.
Overall we enjoyed our evening at The Vine and will be returning in the future. The reason for the score of 5 is simply the food was excellent, wonderfully cooked and can't be faulted except for the fact the dishes we chose were very "wet" and came with far too much sauce giving the impression at the end of the meal that we didn't initially enjoy as there appeared to be a lot of waste? Nothing could be further from the truth and perhaps on our next visit we will request less sauce?
This was the first time we have taken our 21/2 year old to somewhere other than a family pub for a meal and it was his first 'proper' curry. The staff were brilliant, bringing a little pot of sauce for him to try before we ordered for him. The food was excellent and the friendly staff helped make our evening very special. We'll definitely be going again.
Table not ready had to wait an age at bar to be served even though only us waiting because they were doing drinks for table customers. Had uncomfortable low table at the very back of the top room, cramped a little, kept knocking table with knees. Were offered poppadoms straight away looked promising bit unfortunately had to wait over half an hour maybe more for someone to take our order (after asking) then starter took at least another half an hour to come and mains same. Felt like we had been waiting an age. Food was very tasty though and portion sizes generous. Excellent pickle tray loved the red sweet sauce!!!! Would like to try again when it wasn't so busy to see if was any better as was promising.
Very poor. We were not met on arrival. There were no staff front of house. We unsuccessfully tried to get someone's attention, eventually going to the bar area. At the bar were 2 staff, neither acknowledged us at all prefering to sort out order slips and bills instead. We interrupted a waiter and 10mins after arrival another waiter showed us to our table. We got our drinks but no one came to take our order. We waited again then got the attention of a girl, who got the attention of a different waiter who took the order. Another wait, the Poppadoms came. The starters we ordered never came but eventually our main course did arrive. Good food but it could have been hotter. We later asked for our bill....3 times....to 3 diferent people....deciding to leave as no one came to see if we wanted desserts etc. The bill didn't come and we could have easily left without paying when someone else wished us good night, hoping everything had been nice.!! We pressed him for the bill, which they couldn't find initially, then deducting the starters that we didn't have!! We haven't been here before. It was extremely busy but we had booked beforehand. I generally felt that they could not cope with the volume of orders ( there were a lot of take away orders as well). But more over there was the distinct feeling that none of the large number of staff wandering around knew their roles. There was no management of the resturant floor and nobody willing to take responsibility, to the extent that staff wouldn't look at us in case we asked something, preferring to ignore us instead. The service at The Vine is so poor that the quality of the food is forgotten which is a shame. We did stick it out, however a group on a table near us left after inquiring twice about their starters that didn't arrive and the the group on the next table to us didn't get their drinks for 20 minutes after arrival. I've looked at their website. May be we went to the wrong resturant because nothing I read matches the experience we had. Can't recommend it. They need to get their act together.
The Vine was clean and staff very friendly. The food was quite expensive and 2 of the three dishes were bland at best and tastless at worst. Both me and my partner had the Bhuna special with mixed meats we both commented that it had no flavour. For starter I had the mixed kebab which consisted of 1 Onion Bhaji (very good) 1 Alu Chop (no taste) and 1 Sheik Kebab (very nice). Given the price it is very unlikely that we will return. Steve
Extremely pleasant surroundings and delicious food, can't speak highly enough of the Vine, Ali the owner was a most convivial host and took time to ensure we enjoyed our evening. The restaurant is tucked out of the way and has a good large car park, shall be returning soon
