Lakshmi Sweet Centre & Restaurant
- T: 01902 450 939
Here’s the thing. I have never written an online review. Ever.
Be it a meal, a product or anything else, the recognition that anyone can have the odd off-day, is enough to stop me writing anything that may adversely impact someone’s hard earned livelihood.
But that was before I had the... Read more misfortune to visit Lakshmi.
How do you order, get served and eat, without your presence even being acknowledged?
Ask the staff at Lakshmi.
We (politely) ordered and paid for samosas and chai whilst deliberating over our main course. The man scowled and simply held out his hand for payment. We paid and thanked him as we received our change. The entire transaction was conducted without the staff uttering a single word or even making eye contact.
After a long wait our samosas finally arrived and the waiter unloaded the food from the tray, again without bothering to speak at all or making any eye contact, whilst we thanked him for bringing our meal.
I bit into my (dry, bland) samosa and noticed it was hot on the outside, but lukewarm on the inside. I politely tried to get the waiter’s attention, but he walked right past.
The chai was served and I complained to the waiter about the samosas. He said nothing, made no eye contact and simply served our chai as if nothing had happened. The tea tasted as if it had been reheated. We didn’t bother to complain.
I am accustomed to distinctly average service at some desi places and frankly I don’t care. One could almost argue it’s part of the bluff charm of the traditional sweet centre/curry house.
But this was something else altogether: indifference bordering on outright hostility, combined with awful food.
Oh and I’d treat the positive reviews with a pinch of salt. Kuldip S gives this place a glowing five star review in February 2017 on TripAdvisor and Google, but then gives the game away by referring to “our takeaway.”
Looks like they put the same effort into their fake good reviews that they do into their food and service. Show less

Food is great but service is really very slow, would be perfect if we got served a bit quicker
