    Food was very lovely but we waited 40 minutes to be served and there was only 2-3 items left on the main menu. It would have been better to tell us on arrival what dishes they don’t have rather than 40 minutes later.

    2nd visit so had hoped for improvement food wise as 1st time they had just opened. Unfortunately, still serving lukewarm food at London prices. Can't fault the look and style of the place and service is great, but 2 courses and a bottle of wine for two people at £125 well, we should have walked out raving about the taste sensations. Want to like this so much! Also, have rice as a side please!

    Overall Tamasha was disappointing. The food was average at best, wine was dramatically overpriced and we felt crammed in like sardines as the tables were very close together. My starter, calamari, was inedible and when the waiter took away my full plate he remarked that I was not the only customer to dislike the calamari that evening. It was left on the bill despite me eating only a couple of mouthfuls. The main was nice but nothing special, I had skewers, and expensive. The service was good, friendly and eager although we were told as we were seated that we had a time limit as the table was needed back, I don't mind this but it should have been made clear at the time of booking. A voluntary service charge was also added which I find presumptious for a new restaurant that needs to iron out lots of flaws first.

    Lovely new restaurant on Mapperley Tops. Great decor and ambience, and very well cooked fresh food. But...sorry about this....the vegetarian options were a little disappointing in taste, although the portion sizes and presentation were excellent. The flavour lacked the sophistication which you would expect for the quite expensive prices. My husband had a cocktail which again was rather underwhelming and expensive. We enjoyed our meal, but felt the bill was quite expensive for the quality of cuisine.

    As others have mentioned here/elsewhere, it is more expensive than one might have expected for a restaurant on Mapperley Top. It was busy, buzzing and the service was brisk, however, being restricted to a time-to-vacate the table leaves a slightly sour taste and one could see people being asked to leave. There is nowhere suitable to wait on arrival, should your table not be free, and you stand next to the bar, in the way of guests and staff going to the upstairs tables. The food is very good, the portion sizes are huge (too big, perhaps) and we opted for one main course and a couple of starters all to arrive together, to share between two of us, which was plenty. Will go back to try some other dishes at some point.

    Only good things to say about this place, amazing food, great service and the decor is stunning! All of the staff were super friendly, welcomed us as soon as we got to the door and made great recommendations on the food! For starters we had the teriyaki beef, chilli crispy cheese and the padron peppers, for mains we had the lamb shank and the mixed chicken, lamb and king prawn skewers - all of which I would highly recommend, cooked perfectly! They also offered us a complimentary liqueur at the end of the meal! We will absolutely be coming back!

    We booked weeks ago and we’re worried when we saw some negative reviews but so glad we didn’t change our reservation. Service was good and food was fabulous. Was a little expensive as we had starters, mains and a couple of desserts but it was a special treat for the family for Christmas Eve.

    Lovely venue and enjoyable experience but the prices are high and suggest fine dining. Whilst the food is good and portions are generous, the service and quality of the food do not warrant the price. I had tempura prawns to start - the prawns were large but with little taste, the batter wasn't light and crispy like a tempura batter. They were served with mashed potato which seemed a little odd. Main courses were good but could have benefitted from more flavour and less quantity - our plates were over flowing with bombay potatoes. The choice of wines by the glass is too limited and needs to be expanded to appeal to more customers. Only had one cocktail but it was excellent if a bit over priced

    Really enjoyed our night. Although my aunty paid 60 cash for two bottles of prosecco and had to ask for her 10 change and was told it was service charge! And only got 5 of it back. This was before we even ordered our food. Not good restaurant etiquette.

    Firstly the positives; food was lovely, staff were friendly. However, the tables are very close together so makes for a noisy environment. Service was a little slow, it took half an hour to get drinks after having to say we’ve had no drinks and our order is yet to be taken. We got offered the dessert menu before we’d even eaten our main. Despite that the food was really nice albeit a little on the expensive side. We would give it another go. It’s a relatively new business so may have teething problems which resulted in the slow service.

    We ate quite early at 6pm so the restaurant had a completely different vibe to when we left around 8:30ish. Throughout though, the staff were excellent. Friendly, enthusiastic and very helpful. The ambience is great and the decor is very sleek and feels special. Even down to how great the bathroom smells. The food was incredible. I’m vegetarian so had the Indian cheese, gunpowder cauliflower, Padron peppers and the houmous. That cauliflower…..amazing! My partner had the scallops and she still hasn’t stopped talking about them and we’re now 4 days after our meal there. We also had a couple of cocktails and they were delicious and the attention to detail in the drinks was fantastic. You can clearly see that they have the staff with the right experience and expertise in place. At the end of the meal, even the owner came to our table and my partner and I were full of praise. The reality is that Mapperley has been crying out for a venue like this and long may it remain open because I will definitely be going back. I wish the management and staff all the luck in the world with the restaurant and if I haven’t said it already…….Wow! That cauliflower.

    We had a great welcome and the evening looked promising but there were too many short-comings to give a very positive review. We were on the upper floor and the place was very cramped (worrying at this pandemic time) and VERY noisy - def needs to some sound-dampening furnishing. There was a bit of a mix up with the food although this was dealt with pretty efficiently and with good humour. Our drink order was taken straight away but we had to ask for it three times and it eventually turned up when the food arrived (approx 30mins). The food was generally enjoyable although not startling and was extremely expensive for the standard of food and location of restaurant (suburbia). We did not pay the 12.5% service charge but gave a smaller gratuity reflecting our experience. Overall, I wouldn't say I wouldn't go again but I would certainly want to hear of improvements before returning.

    Food was absolutely gorgeous! Especially the lamb tikka skewers, gorgeous!!! The noise was just too much… sat us in between two large noisey groups and couldn’t hear ourselves speak! Maybe get some soft furnishings to dampen it out a bit?? Also, adding a service charge of 12.5% automatically onto a bill for a table of two is just downright cheeky! Tipping is a choice! When I raised it with the staff they advised they didn’t even get the tips left in this way!!!! Really put me off the place which is a huge shame.

    Fantastic food and a lovely waiter. We all felt it was a bit pricey for what it what though, considering you can get similar for less in Mapperley and Nottingham. However, the food was absolutely delicious. I think some mid-week and lunch time deals would make it more appealing.
