We came as a family of 4, the food was lovely, staff was friendly, service was quick didn't have to wait very long for the food. Only thing was, my son only eats the onion rings, he would order just them but they only gave him 4 onion rings at a time even if we tried to order a double portion.

Excellent meal- very good quality food. Service was quick and helpful. During covid, you complete a sheet of paper ordering max 4 items per person each time for a member of staff to serve, with no limit on times you can order. Easy process, quick and delicious.

Visited for the first time this year and during covid. It was a totally different experience. Food service clearly had to be different . Menu wasn't vast for the price. Food was brought to you after you had chosen 4 items. This actually worked really well. Staff was ever present and helpful. Food was brought to the table quickly. I remember this place being packed out everytime we have Visited. Yesterday it was almost empty hence 4 stars for atmosphere. In fairness to the restaurant they have made the best of a bad situation and the limited Menu os understandable in these times. Would definitely visit again and anyone nervous about going once lockdown over then its worth a visit

Didn't think much of the food, very poor taste from the differnt curry's.I was annoyed when they only kept bringing 1 poppadom to the table. Felt like there were Trying to reduce the amount of food they were giving us to save on money. Would take alot of convincing to return

Very good social distancing measures and spacious. Plates and portions very small, reduced menu, which may suit some but not others. No more unlimited soft drinks.

Before yesterday the food was always good. But yesterday some food was cold and not fresh. It looks like 1 and 2 days old food. And service was not good. If you want to order more naan or rice then you have to wait 10 mints and in that time your first food or curry go cold. So im very disappoint this time. Its full wastage of money. Sorry

Extremely Poor service received, I have been a customer for years before COVID, I understand the times changing but customer service shouldn’t change in fact it should be enhanced. most of the food was served cold and the portions were deliberately small. It took ages for us to holler another waiter. If you’re going to increase prices make sure that the service is there to match otherwise the quality just becomes the same as standard restaurant which is far far cheaper! Also my wife was made to feel like a villain just because she entered the premises with my children, (one of the was 1 years old) with out a mask and it was raining, tried to explain the masks were with me her husband and I had went to park the car but the staff especially the woman at the front was highly rude! No soft skills whatsoever. Extremely poor

The usual great Aneesa restaurant and they did great effort to keep it buffet style and also complying with government Covid guidelines on table service only. It is a shame that we can’t go to the food and take it ourselves but they did it in a similar clever way. They put many small menus on the tables which has the items and also barcode which shows their pictures, you can order 4 items at a time but as much as you want so that you get fresh food every time, the staff keep taking your orders and bring it back to you without hassle. Especially Umar who explained everything and took away the initial uncertainty about the new system, he was very nice, polite and professional. So you still get all you can eat food while sitting in your table (better for families with kids). Great job, well done.

Would be better to have larger selections of curry on main course options. Good idea to get round covid restrictions but table service takes longer if you want lots of courses and dont get to look at it before deciding. I realise this cant be helped right now

We had a gorgeous meal yesterday even though we couldnt help ourselves the staff deserve 10 stars for their service. You pick your starters as much as you want then they serve it to you then when you're ready you pick anything on the menu as much as you like. The staff couldn't do enough for you, it was just perfect and totally Covid safe, we will be returning soon. I meant to say everything was cooked to perfection
