Have visited this restaurant so many times. The food is always really good and the staff are very attentive. The prices are good too. The place itself could do with a makeover though.

Being a prudent man, I have frequented the same Indian takeaway for some years now. When an old friend recommended Kismet, my first reaction was to proceed with caution. My previous experiences venturing into the unknown have usually been punished with poor food quality. How glad I am I decided to try something new! My girlfriend and I both agree... More

The staff are always very welcoming and attentive, even when they are busy. The food is very delicious and the presentation of it is excellent. Special set menus are a great deal and very affordable. The Balti night they do on a Friday is excellent value and I am a regular for that. I would definitely recommend Kismet for those... More

Visited the Kismet for a Saturday night curry after a trip to a local cinema. The restaurant is small in size but the atmosphere was bustling. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. They had a great selection of dishes including some house specialties all reasonably priced. We opted for the Thali which was absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend... More
