We were 3 friends/colleagues who came for a farewell dinner. We started off with drinks. We ordered the Bollywood Gimlet, Daiquiri and Rose Iced Tea. All the drinks looked beautifully prepared and presented and surprisingly they tasted just as good. For appetisers, we ordered vegetable pakora and Leela’s Signature Flaming Chicken. I’ve been to this restaurant before and if you prefer something mild/non-spicy then go for Eggplant Fries and Afghan Chicken Tikka. For mains, we went for their Smoked Butter Chicken and Prawn Malai Curry with Butter Garlic Naan. Again, surprisingly, the food smelled good but tasted even better. The service was attentive and not intrusive. The decor of the restaurant is just beautiful and they were playing music that was peppy and celebratory so my colleagues and me had a great time!

We went to celebrate our anniversary there. Since we had a reservation, we came and were instantly seated. The server was really nice and welcoming. We got a really adorable card from the head of customer service with a note signed by the staff. Also got a complimentary drink. The food was delicious and the booth we got to sit in was really wonderful. Overall, it was a lovely experience. Definitely recommend for special occasions.

Due to the inclement weather, and having a reservation for the rooftop patio we basically had the place to ourselves, which was lovely. The food (smoked salmon flatbread and tuna poke bowl was amazing. The service was good but not great. But overall a place I’d come back to.

I was impressed the minute we walked up to the hostess stand. The first person that walked up to us was busy but acknowledged us and said someone would be right with us. Another busy server walked by and did the same thing. We could see that they were busy but took the time to make sure we would be looked after shortly. A host then came up and seated us. I’ve been to too many places where if you aren’t their customer you are ignored. Not here. 😄 We came specifically for the creative Caesars they make as this is one of my daughter’s favorite drinks. They did not disappoint other than the Caesar mix tasting a bit sweet but it was nothing that a couple of lime wedges couldn’t fix. The made in house corn dogs were awesome. That will definitely be the Caesar I order next time. The onion rings were good and crispy and the wings were really good too. Yes, all those came on our Caesars!!! Our server was excellent too. I hope I remember her name correctly, I think it was Shae. It was my daughter’s 20th bday and she brought out an excellent bday shot for her with a candle and all! Great vibe over all at Score on King. 👍🏻👍🏻
