Everything was great! – Great service! We were unsure of what to order and our waiter was incredibly helpful... we had an appetizer, bread, mixed grill and a dessert.... fabulous! We will definitely be back!
Crappiest service in houston, avoid at all costs – I used to be one of the most regular patrons of London Sizzler and was appalled with the horrid service and quality there the last time I went. I have spent a good $1000 or so eating there in the past two years with friends and I have always thought, great food, but slow service.
This past experience shocked me; it was a good hour and half since we ordered and we still had not received our food; then one of us went to ask what was happening with the food. A lot of orders were taking a while and hence, there was a good five or six complaints every ten minutes. Thus, the manager decided to vent it out on us and said " if you complain, I am going to cancel your food" ; and then, without waiting for our response, proceeded to scream to the chefs to cancel and throw our food away. Then, he refused to apologize and make amends. We then proceeded to finish our appetizers and plan to leave. Some of the juniors who work here and know me asked me to wait, and they would try and appease the chef's and make it again. Then another thirty minutes pass and we have been without food from 830pm to 11pm now and then we realize there is no food. The angry manager "threatens" us to leave and says he wont charge us for our food. We did leave and then as we are waiting outside and speaking, he proceeds to follow us out and demand that we pay for the drinks!
This horrid behavior was unwarranted and then, when we go in to pay, he has two items we never even received ever on the bill - this sort of cheap tactics are horrible; and so we complained to the owners, and they were bigger douches than the manager and when we asked to NOT pay for the items we did not recieve, they proceed to just say " take your cards and dont ever come back".
On that happy note, we decided to share our love for the manager and the owners and request that no sane person ever go here again.
Fabulous food, good service, great prices – We were hesitant to try this restaurant due to the bad reviews we read but I am so glad we gave it a bash! We were in the mood for a casual dinner with exceptional food and that is exactly what we got. Its true- the place is not pretty and the food did not come fast. But, it was well worth the wait. If you want fast food, go to a fast food joint or at least a restaurant thats known for bringing it out quick. This usually means its pre-made. Our waiters (yes- it seems we had more than one or at least others were willing to help) were very helpful and courteous. The samosas were hot and tasty. The curries (we tried 3) were all delicious. The naans were also hot and fresh. We thought the food was the best Indian we've had in Houston and the other patrons were 90% Indian (I always take that as a good sign). I don't say this often but we'll definitely be back!
Boy oh Boy was this a bad place. The service was horrible. They didn't know what was in half the dishes. On top of that, the waiters took about an hour to bring out the food we had ordered. While waiting, we had to order 2-3 appetizers just to avoid staying hungry. The ambiance was horrible as well. The place was set up all weird and the bar was full of loser guys with big guts staring at girls that were seated. Oh, and London Sizzler actually had food that sizzled while coming out of the kitchen. So much so that the smoke caused 80% of the seated customers to cough and/or sneeze. The foos was decent but the everything else was total garbage. Good for Carryout (call in advance to order though), VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY BAD for dine-in.
Tasty Sizzler – This was our first time at this restaurant and we were very impressed. The service was fast and friendly and served with a British accent. The naan was buttery, hot, and fresh. The chutney was a tasty accompaniment. The Chili Manchurian was perfect in its spiciness. Would also suggest the chicken tikki marsala and the chicken curry. Would definitely go again!!
Great food at resonable prices. – First, realize that this is a very casual place. Think London / Indian Pub.
Good service. Waiter was friendly and knew the menu.
Very tasty and interesting appetizer in the On Puri. Delicious Madras curry. Great Nan bread.
Good selection of beer on tab.
Just wish it was prettier, but then the prices would be higher.
The spice is nice! – The food is the draw here. In a city with bland Indian alternatives this place sets itself apart. The dishes have more fire to them but are done very well. Service can be spotty so expect to wait - but its worth it.
Pankaj Gupta – We went to this restaurant on last Saturday for dinner. We were 8 people. I had a horrible experience at London Sizzler. We had to wait for more than two hours for our food and service was so horrible that I have never experienced anywhere. The waiters were unprofessional and unapologetic. Rather than saying sorry, they charged us 18% gratituty without giving us a chance to pay tip. I will never ever go to this place in my life. One of waiters was very rude and misbehaved as well. So if you are taking your family or friends and don't want to spoil your evening, don't think about going on this restaurant.
Worst restaurant I have ever been to
Editorial Review – Authentic Indian-flavored cuisine served in family-friendly restaurant.
Sizzlin!!!! – Tried this place this evening on the advice of a neighbor, and what a find!
Scary part of town at night, but worth it to get some of the finest cuisine I have ever tried!
Don't forget to try the Tandoori Wings!!!
