Alhamra Indian and Pakistani Restaurant: Info 15 September,2011Wendy Goodfriend

  • Lish

    We (4 people) ate there yesterday (7/30/2011):

    Food was good (8/10):
    Keema Naan- good, spicy.
    Aloo Naan – good.
    Tandoori chickev – very good.
    Tandoori prawn – good
    Prawn biryani – average.
    Chicken Tikka masala – very good.

    Service – very very slow and the food arrived one by one for each of us with long waits in between.
    Some dishes were forgoten and we had to remind them and even the coke had to be reminded.
    The owner/waiter hardly looked at us, didn’t smile and seemed to be indifferent 🙁

    We don’t think to come back and hope to better luck in the future with check please recommendations 🙂

    stop whining. Your attack on CP is silly. The show didn’t recommend the restaurant, three amateurs did.
