Really like this place and live nearby so got a vested interest in it staying open. However...few small points. Firstly, whilst I appreciate that a child burned a finger on one of the hot plates recently I don't think that is sufficient reason to do away with them altogether. Surely the responsibility lies with the parents to tell their children when something is hot? Did the parents not know? What else did they think the metal plate was for if not for keeping the food hot? With this in mind I was dismayed to see that on a recent visit a hot plate was not given and the result was that our curries and noodles were stone cold way before we could eat them and there is nothing worse than ice-cold curries etc. This is an issue that could prevent me from returning. Also...she wasn't there on my last visit but I must agree with the reviewer who commented on the very intrusive member of staff (of Irish origin) who has a habit of being way too 'in your face'. I have witnessed this lady actually pulling up a chair and joining diners who have been foolish enough to encourage her in conversation. We make a point of not making eye contact but she should realise that there are boundaries that should be observed in her occupation and that, generally, diners go out to chat to each other, not to her. Sorry to mention these things but cold food and an annoying staff member really are enough to lose this lovely restaurant business and I really , really, want it to stay.
