After reading the reviews my hopes were high, but soon turned into lows. Firstly they had run out of spicy poppadoms, it was early on a Saturday evening, what curry house runs out of poppadoms! I then ordered lamb chops for a starter, they were as tough as old boots and were fat and grisly. We ordered chicken tikka murch... More

Chicken Madras plain, fairly hot but no spices. Chicken tikka should have a reddish tinge not brown.Also should have some spice to it. Overall food pretty poor and this is one of the better Indians in Lincoln. Madras 4 out of 10 Tikka 1 out of 10

Me and my friend went on a saturday night just before christmas. The food was lovely and the service was good. The only complaint is they dont do puddings so we ordered coffee, but we only got one small pot of coffee between both of us where as the lady on a different table got one all to herself. So...

My weekly takeaway beckoned on Sunday evening and once again it was the Modern of course. Lincoln has a serious lack of decent Indian takeaways, however the Modern always provides good food, and reasonably cheap. The madras is always nice and hot and the naan never burnt. Can't fault it - We've eaten in a few times too, and it's... More

A Friday evening would not be complete without a trip to the Indian! Great menu, excellent service with a friendly welcome. One to return to.

Complained about flat coke and received over spiced meal. Attentive staff until we complained then ignored us missing further drinks orders. Starters were ok but cannot recommend and won't go back. Staff were smug and ignorant, only girls we saw.

Usually fantastic, ordered diet coke and all 3 were 6 months out of date. Hopefully it was just a silly error as the food is usually pretty good
