Good food. Portion sizes just right. No waste what so ever. Menu a mixture of chef's specialities and old favourites. Staff pleasant and attentive. Will return.
Excellent food and the staff were also great, good value for money. I would definitely recommend to others and will be back again soon for another visit.
Food was amazing everything cooked to perfection, taste and flavours was unreal, service and staff was 10/10 always on top of everything l, will definitely be back.
What a great place. The food was great fresh tasting, the rice pudding was too die for. Hopefully we can come back before we leave
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.
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.
First time at 8848 and we were ETA 3 disappointed. We were given the option of sitting downstairs or upstairs and we went for the more relaxed and quiet area upstairs. Service was exemplary and waiter was very knowledgeable about the dishes and wines. Food was very nice, especially the starters of Chana and chilli chicken and all food was flavoursome and piping hot. Enjoyed our meal and will be back. Thank you.
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!
