I have now eaten there twice and on both occasions the food has been very nice and the prices very reasonable.

I have been twice - the first time was awkward as we were the only table in there but we went on Saturday and it was full!

The food is always good and Rahman, the owner, is a really nice man. He commutes form SE London every day at the minute but has had an offer accepted on the flat above Threshers so will soon be a local!

I'd like to share a little story from my Saturday night.

Twice a year 12-15 lads go for a night out in the ( as was Shreethi ), Mumbai Spice. This year we booked for 8:30 on Saturday night. I will add at this point that the group was fairly sober having only really just gone out, and I was definately so, and as I will explain, 2 and a half hours later was even more sober !!

We arrived about 8:35 to find that the table for 12 was split into an 8 and a 4 with a table being used between. Noting that the people on the table between were soon to finish we agreed to leave and come back at 9pm. Luckily a local establishment was able to provide us a quick beer.

We returned at 9pm, to find the 4 people had left, but the hapless waiter had sat another couple in the seats so there was still only a 4 and an 8, with a lovely looking couple having a romantic meal between.

To avoid an issue we took a 4 and an 8 until the couple had finished, and had our Pompadoms ( 16 for the record ).

By 9:50 we were all on the same table and ready to order, but noticed that we had no drinks, so asked ( surprisingly ) for 12 beers. These duly arrived, but they were trying to pass off Kaliber to us, not so much beer as squash ( being non-alcoholic and all ). One of the party explained, a little heatidly ( it's true ) that we wanted alcohol and would not accepts Kaliber. After much discussion it was agreed that wine was not a good substitute either and the waiter decided to get some beer. You'd perhaps like to know that their stock-room for beer actually is the Off-Licence, and the waiter duly left and returned with some freshly purchased 330 ( mini ) bottles of Cobra which he served out while we continued to order.

It wasn't until he was half-way through that it was noticed that they had only served 8 of us with Cobra. So we asked him to hurry along the other 4, only to be told that they had only bought 8 bottles of Cobra as the off-license only had 8 - and didn't think it was worth telling us! Of course, the off-license was now shut so there was no beer to be had.

After much mirth and disbelief we decided to go across the road to the Tabla, where they had a table, and it turns out large bottles in ready supply of Cobra.

So I asked for the bill, saying that we would pay for the 16 pompadoms and 8 beers ( seemed only fair as we had eaten them !).

A bill of over £30 was produced and after much laughter I managed to discover that for a bottle of beer the size of a Coke can, bought from the Offy next door they wanted to charge me £3.95 per bottle! I eventually agreed to pay the 65p per pompadom and told them that I would drop off 8 bottles of beer in the morning for them.

Alas, after the rest of the party had left they decided not to charge us at all.

2 and a half hours after our original booking we all enjoyed a really top meal in the Tabla. My apologies to all those in the Mumbai Spice that had their meals disturbed by the to-ing and fro-ing and mirth from our table - I just don't think I have ever seen such bad hospitality from a restaurant, especially as we probably doubled their numbers that night!

I would add that they were most apologetic at the end and begged us to come back, will we? Would you?
