We had a fabulous time. The food was amazing. The waitressing service offered to us by Mateo & Sita was perfect. It was a quiet celebration dinner for my father's 72nd birthday. The staff did everything possible to make the experience amazing for my 3year old daughter too. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

A revelation.

It would be honest to say that until yesterday I was not fan of Indian food. I booked the table to celebrate my wife's birthday, it was her treat and regardless of my personal feelings to "curry", I resolved to eat all that was placed before me, feigning enjoyment if that was needed to complete my good lady's dining pleasure. I am pleased to report that Mr Vivek Singh is a genius of spice and all his kitchen staff are culinary wizards of the highest order, I cannot praise them more than to say I consumed every mouthful with more enthusiasm than I can express in mere words. The home-smoked mackerel fillet was simply the finest starter I have ever eaten anywhere, superbly flavoured with cumin and pepper, dealt with such a delicate touch that elevates this underrated fish to dizzying heights that not only compliments its subtle natural flavour but reflects the unquestionable freshness of the base ingredient. From this promising start my expectations were raised and my fears dispelled, so the main course (and its side dish accompaniments) arrived and was consumed with gusto, as was the dessert that was a far cry from the sorry servings normally found in Indian restaurants (I'll not bore this 'review' with the details, some things are best discovered for yourself).

Genius is the only word I want to use here and the only question that remains is 'would I eat this meal again?' - and the only truthful answer is 'no, I would not' - not when there is a whole menu of other untried and un-tasted temptations on offer to explore. All my previous reservations of Indian cuisine have been happily discarded.

Food was incredibly tasty. Busy so not quite as much attention from the waiters but it doesn't really matter since there is so much lovely food.

Very good food and very attentive service. Front of house staff not very welcoming - a smile doesn't cost anything! Venue beautiful.

Superb food and service but we were pushed into a room away from the main buzzing restaurant and not sure if this was because of ordering the set menu or the fact that we did not book direct with the restaurant but this did not detract from the absolutely stunning food.
