We had a lovely meal at Dhamaka! The food and cocktails were delicious, and we’ve not experienced service so friendly and attentive in a long time. Thank you!

Food excellent flavours and were authentic having travelled India extensively. Very welcoming and felt safe in these current times. My only minor criticism would be the main courses Chameen and Fish curry were more sauce than fish and prawns and the rice servings were rather mean in portion size. We enjoyed the starter Samosa Chaat very much but the Paneer Tikka was rather bare in garnish and presentation.

The experience at Dhamaka is so exceptional. If we had finished our drink we weren't having to wait to get the attention of any of the lovely waiters - they had already noticed and offered us another drink. The flavour of the food was on point and I am excited to come back to try something different on the menu!

Everything was amazing - nice atmosphere, delicious food and great service/recommendations. The children said it was the best curry they had ever had (they had the butter chicken!). We did however feel we were being rushed to pay and leave as soon as we had finished eating.
