Like most restaurants in Surbiton, they are very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, so advance booking is recommended.

Nice looking restaurant. Went sat night. ordered drinks and pappadoms. Pappadoms arrived and waited and waited for drinks for a long time. Main courses were a mixed bag. I had sag paneer and dhal massalla - both nice. My friends both ordered lamb dishes and were both disappointed. The lamb was in slices just like roast lamb .... not tasty... More

It took nearly an hour and a half from sitting down to getting our main courses, and we hadn't ordered starters. The restaurant wasn't even full. Food was ok when it came but the evening had been spoilt by then. Won't return.

We have been here a few times and always enjoy the food. This time, the food was as awesome as ever, but the service (normally friendly and efficient) - oh dear. Only one of the waiters smiled and the others were grumpy and looked as though they hated their job. This was on a Thursday evening and the restaurant wasn't... More

Went here last night and have been eating here quite frequently over the last 14 months, it is consistently brilliant and finding another curry house as good as this is going to be hard to find. The chicken Banarasi is my favourite dish there and is the perfect mix of a little spice and complex flavours. The staff at Joy... More

Awful experience. We got to the restaurant at 7.45, ordered our meal 45 minutes later at 8.30pm and then didn't get our starters until 9.30pm! They might as well have not bothered as most of the starters were below average for any Indian restaurant. My vegetable samosas looked like they had been bought from the local Tesco! The mains took... More

Normally excellent. Tonight the food was awful and the excuse was 'a different chef on'. Not a great excuse. No refund offered and had to call hungry house to get my money back. I've had better microwave meals. Ask about her chef before ordering!!!!
