Still serving excellent quality meals

This isn't my first review of this restaurant but it deserves a new review since Shakir took over as proprietor a couple of months ago. Sadly Abu and Farouk have gone on to other things, but by no means has this impacted on the menu or indeed the quality of meal experience available. The food... read more

What a difference, I had reluctantly agreed to return and wow it could not have been more different. The food was absolutely gorgeous, the service second to none. Would we eat again - absolutely. What a disappointment. We have eaten here before and really enjoyed so decided to go along with a couple of friends. The vegetarian amongst us was... More

I have dined at The Indian Garden many, many times over the last seventeen years, but it still continually surprises me with new dishes, specialities and overall excellence. It's always nice to be able to list a certain venue as 'the best', well as far as Indian Cusine is concerned; The Indian Garden is second to none. Well done again... More

What a disappointment. We have eaten here before and really enjoyed so decided to go along with a couple of friends. The vegetarian amongst us was very happy with her meal the rest of us were underwhelmed. One of us asked for lamb but got chicken, my chicken which was described as hot and sour was the most peculiar colour... More

I eat here several times a week and would never go to any other Indian Restaurant. The choice is more than the usual restaurant, not just the old favourites but new inventive meals also

Indian food is a passion of mine, having holidayed in India and Sri Lanka almost twenty times in years gone by, and made it a point of pride to eat out at the best restaurants wherever I have travelled. Chutney Mary's in Chelsea and Mela in Soho, both of which I have visited, could learn a thing or two from... More

I have visited this gem of a restaurant at least once or twice a month for almost a year and a half and have been remiss about writing a review for this forum. I have never had a poor experience in fact quite to the contrary, each and every one of my visits seems to surpass the previous in regards... More

I have dined at The Indian Garden for seventeen years. The food is beyond excellent and the service second to zero.

We called in on the offchance on 16/8/2014 after reading good reviews. Sadly the customer service was so indifferent to be almost rude and the food was bland at best. The food arrived very quickly (too quickly?) and our waiter had to be called back several times to be reminded of missing cutlery and drinks that had not been served... More
