Memsaab

Recommended Posts

Not sure if under new(ish) management? or a perhaps a new chef? - but Memsaab has properly upped its game. Last 4 or 5 orders from there have been really very, very good. Everything just seems fresher, with more distinctive flavours. Little garnishes have started to appear - e.g. the sprinkle of fresh coriander on tonight's Bombay aloo and the small round of (I think, and perhaps incongruously) preserved lemon with the chana masala. Someone is definitely giving it a bit of extra love in that kitchen. Delicious!

Memsaab was my Favorite but had some disappointing sit in meals. 4 or 5.

I did give them a chance.


Rice was over cooked and too strong cloves..

I have stayed away for 5 - 6 weeks. used to go twice a week + Home Deliveries.


I had thought that they had a different Chef as Poppadoms and Naans were also not so good.


I'm a little embarrassed to go back.

Try Mirash, Foxy.


I thought Memsaab had gone downhill, but maybe if they have got a new chef I might try them again, but in my recent experience Mirash is much better.

Are the Just Eat prices the same as the prices if you order directly from the restaurant? We had a voucher for deliveroo a while ago so tried to order a Thai but the range of dishes on offer seemed limited and looked like they were different prices to the normal prices.

I though about Mirash BUT they have a notice in the window saying that due to Covid Restrictions

they Have to close by 10.00 PM for Eat-in but still take delivery orders until 11.00 pm,

Not sure if you can go in for a Take Away.


Do not understand why they have to close by 10.00 pm.

Sounds a bit like an excuse.

if the prices are more than the shop then just eat WILL refund the different as i have done this before ON JUST EAT, it goes in your account so when you make another order go to your account and use your refund

Yes. They said they would get back to me. They never did.

  • 2 weeks later...

Went back to Memsaab last night.


I had 2 Popadoms with Pickles.. Pillau Rice.. King Prawn Madras.. Puri Bread..


All was delightful.


I had complained about their Rice on 3 - 4 previous occassions..


The Rice has much improved.. (Nice individual grains)

The King Prawn was delicious and Big portion. (Really exceptional)


Memsaab has returnd to it's former excellent standard.

I would strongly advise anyone who has had a bad experience in the past few months to give it another go.

worth noting that if you order via justeat/deliveroo etc, regardless of how good the deal is to you, the restaurant takes a 20-30% hit. Obviously everyone expects places to use these services so they feel they have to participate - but if they take orders directly, then all the money goes to them

    • Love this video of Simon Munk talking about the floating bus stop issues...just watch the behaviour of the cyclists who appear in shot....not one of them following the rules....the fact that LCC pushed this out shows just how blinkered they are...it's like that famous clip of some local government official being interviewed on the road side to talk about how much safer that particular stretch of road is now because of their interventions and a crash happens right behind him!  
    • I think WRT Labour, they don't want to open up what would become another devisive Brexit debate this side of an election. Personally I'm ok with this as I want to see the Tories absolutely shellacked at the GE as a consequence for what they've brought on the country. I doubt that Labour will address Brexit much in a first term either, instead concentrating on the big domestic issues e.g. NHS, transport, education. I realise that these these are all interconnected with Brexit, but the lead-up to Brexit itself took up so much bandwidth that nothing else got done, so I can see Labour swerving the Brexit issue fir as long as they can.  Eventually though, you can only ignore the economic gravitational pull of the single largest trading bloc right on your doorstep for so long, and at some point Labour will have to address it, so for me it's more a question of when not if...

    • Leon from electrical initiative changed our old skool kitchen lights with modern dimmable down lighters. I'm really pleased with the work, fitted to a very high standard. Leon has it all, excellent electrician, polite, easy to get on with, turned up on time, excellent communication and charged at fair value. I highly recommend his services.
