    I will start with saying this is one of my favourite restaurants in Peterborough, and the eating giving on the visit is well below what I normally give. But the food and service were concerning enough to make this post. The service was not good. Starting from coming in and giving name (we always have reservations). The waiter looked for 1 second and then said oh who cares come this way. It took forever to give a drink order, and then to get our drinks - water finally arrived before our regular drinks. We thankfully ordered our dinner at the same time we ordered our drinks as it too was a longer than normal wait. My husband loved his tadka dal, mut my dal makani was missing something. It wasn’t as rich and robust ad we are used to. While waiting for a waiter to come back I decided to attempt the bathroom… attempt being the word. The doors to both the women’s and family rooms would not lock. There was no toilet paper in either, and it didn’t look like anyone had even checked them in hours. Some restaurants have an off night… I 100% get this. But I wasn’t as happy with their other restaurant Agave a few weeks ago either… so I’m definitely getting concerned . At this point, until I go back and get the food and service I’m used to, I won’t be able to recommend.

    Great service, best samosas and Naan ever! The lamb vindaloo was tender, no gristle bits, and nicely spicy.
