Great food

I really really enjoyed my meal here- chicken sagwala and rice- my girlfriend loved her tandoori quail. The service was great, in a really nice setting. I'm really surprised at the negative reviews as I have nothing but praise. We had a fairly expensive red wine- Bill totalled £43- well worth it... read more

I've been eating Indian food since 1965 (here and in India) and I've been eating in this restaurant for over 30 years. We've frequented alternative restaurants and watched them come and go but we've always returned here. Admittedly, I tend to go for Dhansak but I've tried a few other dishes and loved them all. The staff have always been... More

We had a take away from this restaurant based on the good reviews we read here... what a mistake! What a waste of money! The guy on the phone was rather rude, so was the delivery guy, who didn't say "hi" nor "bye" and didn't even leave the receipt (mmm... maybe the prices we were charged were different than the...

Ordered takeaway after reading all the positive reviews on here. Was told my order would take 50 minutes. After waiting an hour and a half I phoned asking where my order was and was told the driver has just left and as I was paying by card it would take longer as they only have a limited number of card...

We had a delicious curry here last night. The food was exceptional and prices very reasonable. Service throughout was very attentive. We will definitely be back. We live locally and this is by far one of the best curry places in the area.

First time at this place. Went via recommendation. Arrived and lobby full of delivery drivers-at least 5 of them. Obviously delivery is a big part of the business. Ordered a glass of port and it arrived in a shot glass. Told the waiter that it should be in a sherry glass or wine glass at the very least. They brought... More

We've tried all the (10+) Indians on Stoke Newington Church St and this is right up there with Rasa (100% vegetarian) with the added advantage that they deliver. Service is prompt, food is always warm and the staff are friendly - it's nice to be acknowledged a a regular customer when we answer our door. The vegetarian food is really... More

Really tasty food. Great lamb jalfrezi (melting lamb with a deep flavour and a nice chilli kick). Terrific naan bread (with charred & crispy bits). Nice staff and good service. Excellent value. Tastiest food on Stoke Newington Church Street.

A great range of dishes catering to a range of tastes, delivery can be slow during busy periods. Everything from Momo's to thali's with a tendency to rich sauces, great with friends and beer
