First off, it took forever for us to get a seat, because no one would seat us. Employees rather talk to each other than help customer's. And not only that when we had to find our own seat because we sat at the door for 20 minutes, one of the employees finally came by... To yell at us for finding... More

Decided to take my dad out for lunch, we were doing a pub crawl throug the city centre, so needed something to soak up the beer. I asked Siri but it pointed us elsewhere and we simply stumbled upon this place. I must say first impressions were high, very swanky looking place, some seat overlooking the Motor Museum and most...

Now known as Delhi 8, we went on a groupon voucher and were immediatly impressed with the decor, very modern and contempory. It was very quiet on the night we visited so we had the waitress to ourselves. Unfortunately she didn't know anything about the food and had to keep asking the manager/owner who finally came over to us. The... More

We went this evening as a group of 4. We sat next to the open door overlooking the millennium and Frank Whittle structures, what a lovely way to view this part of the city, sitting in a beautiful restaurant, lovely soft music and an ambience second to none. We started with the best popodoms I have ever tasted with top... More

The atmosphere was great with people just having a drink and then some families eating. We sat next to the our door bit facing the Transport Museum and we had the most unique view... More

We visited with a Groupon voucher, but will definitely go back and eat here again. The restaurant has a very nice, relaxed atmosphere, and the smell was fantastic. We didn't order a starter, but were brought poppadoms over as an apology for the delay in bringing our order. (We hadn't noticed any delay). The tandoori chicken grill was well spiced... More

Went on the groupon deal which gave 3 options from 'grill' - lamb chops, tandoori chicken and sea bass. Ordered starters as extra : well presented but bland taste. Grill options of lamb and chicken both overcooked, dry and very chewy. Sides and vegetable dishes were very good. Cocktails excellent. Service attentive and speedy. The place looks and feels great...

Me and my husband went to Rixs last Saturday for a romantic evening. We ordered butter chicken and lamb curry, it was mind blowing. The flavours were rich and presented like an artwork on a plate. The staff were very friendly, attentive but not hovering and the service was impeccable. The atmosphere is very clean and contemporary. I would highly... More
