You knew how much it was before you ordered. Not enough rice, how about you order some.
All the best,

Vindaloo, your an absolute idiot. Dont ever come back to my establishment you sour sour man. I should put your real details on here!!!! Heres what happened.
You ordered 2 main courses, 2 sides, 1 nan and 4 popadoms.
You never ordered any rice.
You called and complained you didnt get any rice and we told you that you didnt order any. To this your moaning attitude was that every restaurant youve been to gives rice with curry. I stayed calm and explained we dont give rice with dishes. Then you went on to say why my staff did not tell you rice wasnt included. To this my answer shouldve been why should they, however i calmly explained that we try not to upsell we're possible. You just kept going on and on. I kept my calm throughout and only lost my temper when you threatened me that you would destroy my business!!!!!
My prices have not increased since 2007. They will go up in few months so please stop using the shanaz...........

Rant over.
Apologies to everyone else for this post as most people who know me will know that im not normally like this.

I would never expect to have rice without ordering it. Vindaloo's attempt has backfired completely and he just made himself look very foolish.
Next time I have a meal out, I'm going to make sure it's at the Shanaz, particularly now I know that "Vindaloo" won't be there.

Name one place where you order a curry and a free rice turns up.
Like the Earl of Lewes, I too enjoy the Sharaz, only if it's from the Rhône Valley mind.
Kind regards,
Gary

Someone yet again tries to smear a local company anonymously but this time gets shot down in flames. Absolutely brilliant. You weren't expecting that were you Vindaloo?

Well I like Shanaz. Always good food. They warn you how long delivery will take, delivery people always very nice and polite and prices on a par with other takeaways. And which takeaways include rice ?? None I've ever used! Well said Ali, you don't need his custom

Yep, you want rice, you order rice. You knew the prices when you ordered, Vindaloo, you have no grounds for griping.
Seeing that your restaurant has such support on here, Ali, I shall give it a try myself.

One other point - £23 for four dishes works out at £5.75 a dish - not "bloody expensive" by any stretch of the imagination. I hope that now Vindaloo has had time to think it over, he'll have the humility to make an apology (not likely, I know, but there's always hope).

I ask myself - would someone be so daft as to come on here and complain about a takeaway at bog standard prices, moan about non existent rice when the world knows you need to order it to get it (aside from birani where I go)
Then I note - lo and behold of the fraction of the Lewes population that comes on here one is called Ali who appears to own/work at this restaurant
If I were a cynic I might think what a clever piece of advertising

Ali, ignore Old Bloke. We all do. I would suggest that you take a leaf out of Woodruff Yard's book and put up a "Tories Charged 10% extra" sign. Local businesses tend to thrive after they do that.

In a town where it's difficult to find a decent meal, at a decent price, you really cannot complain about the Shanaz. I've been eating there (and ordering home delivery) for 7 years, haven't really had a problem....

Thanks for that Ali I will pop in but only to try one of your meals. I don't need the beer
Pleased to see you're not as bitter, twisted and discriminatory as some on here
Mark especially - wonder what he would have said if the fool who owns Woodruffs had put up a notice saying black people charged 10% extra. The man's an idiot
@ Anyone - what was sour about my post - you sound like another twisted Lewes Guardianista and Twister isn't much better
Almost the entire bunch of you (not you Ali) a bunch of key board cowards that'd run a mile at the first sign of a confrontation

Poor Vindaloo just got his back side burnt. Not getting a refund matey. It's people like you gives locals a bad name around the country. If you politely took it up with the business I'm sure you would've had a better outcome instead you threaten to use social media to tarnish a local reputable business, shame on you and your ignorance.

Old Bloke, your suggestion of charging black people more would be illegal. There's a huge difference between black and being a Tory. People choose to be Tories, and can stop any time they like. Black people can't stop being black, Michael Jackson notwithstanding.
Hope that's cleared that one up for you.

@Curtain Twitcher - where exactly did I suggest charging black people more?
Please come back and tell me and if you can't you need to apologise
In fact here is exactly what I said - "if the fool who owns Woodruffs had put up a notice saying black people charged 10% extra."
So in actual fact you've cleared nothing up for me as there was no need to I the first place
You need to read things properly - the point was about discrimination against groups of people
Like Mark you obviously believe it's OK to pick on someone purely because of where they choose to place their vote
But of course in your rather odd world that's not discrimination
I'm reminded of the immortal line from 'All 'All - "stupid woman"
