My friend and I ordered pompadoms, 3 main Currys which we asked them to do as hot as possible (Indian hot), cheesy garlic naan bread and also a large bottle of sprite lemonade - this order came to $60.00 which we thought was acceptable. We were staying at a local motel for a few days and as we had a few drinks we were unable to pick up our order and they explained they had a delivery service available which we happily took them up on. 40 minutes later our order arrived which was good timing we thought. We were first handed our drink we ordered and we were given a 1.5 litre bottle of Pams ginger ale, on the phone we asked for price and the polite lady on the end of the phone when reading back our order confirmed we asked for sprite lemonade. That was mistake one. We then went into our motel to start the meal, pompadoms were not crunchy as usual but rather soft and flimsy, the cheesy garlic naan bread however was very nice. We started on the main Curries, when on the phone to the lady we asked for Indian hot or as hot as they possibly could make it. It was so mild that even my 2 year old daughter could eat it without any trouble, it was the same mildness as butter chicken out of a jar at the supermarket. All three curries - vindaloo, korma and butter chicken were mild. We called up next day to complain as we did not think we should have paid for a meal which we did not ask for, I really do not enjoy curry unless it is hot. They would not offer to provide us back any partial refund and said that the curry was as hot as they could make it - this certainly was not true I believe because it was about 8pm on a Monday the chef was lazy and just wanted to finish up for the night. Then we asked about the sprite we were meant to have brought, they said sorry they had none so replaced it with ginger ale (which is more a mixer than a soft dtink). I believe they should have called us regarding the drink before assuming that we wanted dry ginger ale. We asked how much the drink
