Great tasting food but very very slow service from the kitchen. It was a weekday dinner with only one other group of 3 ladies at the restaurant. Yet the food took way above 20 minutes to arrive. We asked for one extra Naan order and that took another 30minutes to come. Wonder how they manage when it’s busier.
The food is good and so were the drinks, but could do with a change of decor!
It was amazing
2nd time in over 12 month period I had the same experience. We were the only customers (4ppl) in restaurant for duration of meal and the restaurant was freezing.
This place used to be more festive and fun, but was pretty quiet (dead for a Saturday night, relatively speaking). There didn't seem to actually be any waiters or waitresses - just a hostess and another manager type doing these duties. It took 15 minutes to even get someone to come over to us for our drink order. Service was at a snail's pace throughout and the lack of festive ambiance was very noticeable to say the least. Strange since the place only have 3-4 tables full of patrons?
We used to come here for special occasions, and even though the food is still very good (not amazing, but very good)... I'm afraid we can't recommend. They desperately need to overhaul their service, hire an actual bartender, update the decor, etc., if they want to be what they once were (and if they want to avoid closing their doors). It's depressing more than anything else, since it was once such a fun and interesting destination. Not sure if we'll be back, I'm sorry to say...!
It took nearly 20 minutes to get in our drink order after arriving - despite only 4 tables in use, there were no servers attending us. We had to wave emphatically to flag down a server.
The restaurant had the lighting set at the brightest. When we commented about it, we were told that it was because it was dark during the day (it's now 8PM at night), and they didn't do anything about it.
We used to be regulars at this restaurant. It was one of our favorite places to eat, but the service and ambiance have gone to hell. The food is still great, but quite out of place now.
Not worth the hype about Latin Indian food. I would rather go to Indian restaurant and get real Indian food.
Very good food. Very nice service (the waitress was alone but lovely). The only thing that the restaurant could do much better is the decoration / ambiance, which is really outdated and a little kitch. Not much would be required to modernize a lot the place.
We have been to Vermilion many times. They have a very interesting blend of Latin and Indian dishes that are found nowhere else. Often pretty spicey but not all. Very much worth going to. One of our favorite places.
We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and had dinner here. Absolutely wonderful staff who made us feel special. The drinks were outstanding and the food was delicious. We will be back for more.
