    Environment was good although service wasn’t great - the waiter brought the starter and put my dish down on the opposite side of the table from me then walked away - very puzzling! Food was good but not great.

    Pleasant experience, slightly pricey which was to be expected. The staff were very nice.

    The experience was like visiting faulty towers! Poorly managed and very understaffed. 45 minutes for each course to arrive and whilst food was nice it was over priced for what it was. Felt sorry for the staff who were extremely stretched and stressed. We had to wait ages for our order to even be taken. Everyone around us was getting frustrated. Would have loved dessert but just didn’t want to wait even longer to order and receive.

    The food was very good and very tasty. However, given the restaurant was virtually empty I thought the service was rather slow. We were kept waiting to be seated. Initial orders were taken swiftly but the gap between starters and mains indicated a poor attention to progress on the table. Service once it arrived was quick and attentive.

    Lovely afternoon tea apart from one type of cake that was so dry it was obviously not fresh, a bit disappointed

    All dishes were perfectly cooked and presented. Would recommend the lamb with aubergine. Well priced wines by the glass too.

    The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. I had originally booked for 8, but we had around 14 diners in the end and they were all catered for. We also had a few difficult requests such as pre-ordering mains an hour before our booking and a guest who took her desert to go. These were all dealt with in a really friendly and professional manner which helped the evening go smoothly for us - a huge thank you to everyone who was working on Friday evening.

    I had an amazing time at the Tamburlaine restaurant. It was the birthday of one of my friends and we were a party of 13. The restaurant did an amazing job of hosting us. They were so kind.

    Great food, well prepared. Average to high pricepoint, but good value. Wine list is could be expanded. Lovely decor. The atmosphere was a bit blunted, but this was a weekday evening.

    The setting and food were very good, but the service was SHOCKING. My friend ordered a dish on the menu without pork, because he’s Muslim. The dish came and had what looked like a pork product on the chicken. He expressly asked if it had any pork in it and was confidently told no pork. Still suspicious, asks another member of staff and they ask the chef who confirms their’s ham in. We raised it with the manager and she just apologised. She was quite aggressive and sneaky in her approach. I tried to make sure her and her colleague understood how serious this was (ie people need to know what’s in their food for allergy reasons and out of respect for their choice to eat or not eat certain things). I don’t think she did because her response to what happened and spoiling our evening was to remove a single bottle of wine from the bill. I was stunned.

    It was a special occasion and the Tamburlaine staff were just lovely. The meal was outstanding and puddings were imaginative. The chefs were really sweet and friendly to my two young daughters and being able to watch the food being being prepared kept them excited about what was happening. A thoroughly enjoyable evening had by all and an occasion and even more special. Thank you very much.

    Easy to book on line for an Afternoon Tea with friends. Lovely dishes, we got more jam and cream when requested.
