My husband and I decided to drop into the Tandoori Bite for the early bird. The notice on the front window said 1 starter 1 main rice or nan bread and glass of wine or beer for €12.95 so we decided to try this as it was such good value. This notice was underneath the main menu in the front window so we assumed it was any main or starter as there was no other menu there to indicate otherwise. We went in and was handed the regular menu and nothing else ordered from that and had our food. The food was ok nothing special, we then asked for bill and to our horror was handed a bill for over €50 . We queried this with the lady who was dealing with us who told us that we didnt order from the early bird menu to which i told her that her sign outside didnt specify that there was any seperate early bird menu . the sign just said 1 main 1 starter we assumed it was from the main menu but she insisted that it did. i reluctantly paid up and then went outside and checked the notice about the early bird . I was right it didnt specify anything other that i starter i main. I went back in and asked her to come out and check and at this stage she brought out a second menu which we werent shown and i asked her why we werent as the early bird was until 9.30pm and we went in about 8 and her excuse was we didnt ask for it and customers normally ask for it. We dine out reqularly and would always be provided we main menu, early bird menu or any specials that would be available at the time so i would assume that there would be no need to be asking for whatever menus that is on offer. Her attitude was a case of tough luck and we feel completely conned. We felt this was a strange way to treat customers as the place was uncomfortably quiet as the only customers were us and 3 other people who arrived just as we were leaving. I certainly wont be returning and would suggest this place be avoided at all costs
