We booked the restaurant for a late meal after putting on a play at the Victoria Hall. There were around 20 of us and my over-riding impression was that they couldn't care less and the sooner we left the better. They served our main course, grabbed our plates. We were not offered dessert or coffee and as we left I overhead one of the staff saying "right, they have all gone now". It was a deeply disappointing, not to mention upsetting experience. They just wanted our money and for us to go as soon as possible. I appreciate it was quite late, but they knew that when we booked. If they didn't want us at 11.00 they should have turned the booking down. I was a regular customer and I will never consider eating there again.

Regrettably we gave this place a 2nd chance after a bad first visit. The owner is incredibly rude, reminiscent of Basil Fawlty. Our reservation seemed to be a huge inconvenience to him. I have to say that other staff are courteous and obviously trying their best despite being run off their feet. Every request takes at least half an hour. We sat at our table for 15 minutes with no menus or offer of a drink. Food is ok. One dish we sent back as it was cold. It returned 30 seconds later, having clearly been put in the microwave, still cold. Defiantly won’t be returning to Balti Towers.

Pretty average experience at the Viceroy. Breads are excellent but the Bhuna was bland and not plentiful. Lacks ambience in general, and there much better Indian restaurants in the area. Not terrible but not great either.

Visited last week after a 10 year break. Was slow but otherwise fine. Nothing stood out but all the food was what you'd want and expect.

Horrendous service, lukewarm food. Lamb was really chewy and all just substandard .
Will not be going back.
Lots of people walked out and were waiting over an hour for food.
