There is more than one and since I've been married to one of them for 27 years and the others are all Germans I think I know which one is suitable thanks.

Re: Bern Dinner Club, Indian food, Tuesday 8th August at 7pm

The restaurant contacted me by e-mail with an offer to rate the restaurant after our dinner. I told them the food was very good, but the service was very bad. A bread I ordered was never delivered, and a meat curry was served to a vegetarian. Our table had to wait from 7pm until 8:30 pm for their main meal.

On Friday the manager, phoned me and asked me what the problem was. I told him we had to ask for the menu, we had the feeling they wanted us to drink plenty before we had the food, and that one member was very hungry.

He apologized and said he would look into it, I thanked him.

I am not going to complain publicly, but if any of you visit "Way to India" again and experience bad service, ask to see the manager, for me they have been warned. The restaurant, including our party, was not even half full, I feel there was no excuse for the bad service we received.

The service at our table was friendly, but also a bit off although not to that level. Mr Wishes had to ask for a second beer at least three times; by the time they brought it he was finished with his meal. We observed that we were nearly finished eating before food was brought to your table. At the end of the evening, the server wanted to charge our table for four sets of naan bread when clearly we'd only ordered two. He then said there were two orders per basket - maybe the chef cut corners and put it all in two baskets knowing it was for the group, not realizing we were at three different tables?

I've not had bad service there before. They did ask repeatedly at the end of the evening if the food was good and of course we said yes. I'll be happy to speak with the owner next time I'm in there if you'd like.

We had already heard from friends that they wouldn't recommend that restaurant, which contributed to our decision to give it a pass. When they were in Markthalle we ate there once, service was chaotic and food mediocre tourist fare at best.

I also had to ask for another beer several times. I liked how the server said the beer was on the house (since they missed my food order), but then when we paid, it was on the bill. With two little ones, I didn't have time to correct them. With a group our size, you either need two servers or need to write down everything on paper!
