Simply top top notch food, great service too. Poppadum's, lamb, duck, vegetarian options all really good. Thoroughly recommend 8848 whether you're a tourist or a local.
The staff were very friendly and explained the food well. They were attentive but left you without interrupting conversations. The food was different but beautiful and presented well. There was not too much food leaving you feeling bad that you'd wasted lots and you weren't encouraged to order too much either. We had a lovely meal out and will go back again for sure.
Absolutely bloody brilliant! Went for my graduation dinner and the service and food were unreal! Couldn't have asked for a better meal! Thanks to all
Excellent food in a lovely setting, the staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. I had a lamb Rogan Josh, the lamb was succulent & the sauce flavourful, I prefer a slightly crispier Naan than normal and that's what I got. My neice had the chicken Pasanda and she enjoyed her meal too. Thanks
We had an itison voucher, and the deal was ok. Waiter was a bit vague on what was included, some dishes have a supplement and it varies as to the dishes. I asked the waiter to recommend a spicy lamb dish, which wasn't very spicy (even my wife thought that, and she doesn't do spicy). Drinks are reasonable service to start with was a little slow, but as more staff came on, it evened out. All in all was OK, but don't know if I'd rush back. On a separate note the itison vouchers have to be seated before 5, and the staff seemed to change at 6. Our parents were ther yesterday, and it seems the staff tried to charge them full price, even though they had presented their voucher when they arrived, as per policy. Took them almost 15 minutes to get things sorted out.
I love 8848. The food, the service and the atmosphere is fantastic. My wife and I were there for our Valentines night out, it was a Saturday evening and it was very busy but at no point did we feel that we were waiting too long for our food, or drinks. I had the lamb shank for a main and it's really good, meat is so tender and for anyone that is put off Indian food because of spice, this has almost none, just a background heat... Yum, wish I was there now!
Amazing food and friendly service. The restaurant has a really lovely atmosphere and the waiter was great and recommended dishes for us. I can't remember the name of the dish I had but it was lamb shank and was truly delicious! The meat fell off the bone. They were also happy to accommodate dietary requirements and their menu is very clear for intolerances. The bill at the end was a pleasant surprise too, fantastic value for money. Will be back soon.
American in Europe using apps that help speed up all kinds of everyday situations is revolutionary. This app was convenient and efficient for setting a reservation at a local restaurant. Our table was waiting and the door for us, professional and friendly. We felt well taken care of for using such a simple system. America needs An upgrade. Highly recommended!
Went there for anniversary meal on quiet Sunday evening. All in our party were unanimous in thinking the standard of service and quality of food was outstanding. I had the mixed fish platter for the main course which was amazing. Will certainly return in near future.
Excellent meal with a good and varied menu. Only let down was that when we first got our pompadoms they served a dip tray that had been used and had dirty spoons. Otherwise great food and we will return. Cost was not too bad for a city centre restaurant. Atmosphere was good too.
