This small indian restaurant offers traditional indian dishes at a reasonable price. Waiters are kind and making all efforts to answer your questions. Food is tastful and in nice portions; you really feel the various expected spices in your plate! Definitely a good address to stop while in the neighbourhood.

Don't order off the menu! Ask them for a Murg Mussalam, you don't need anything else, maybe some Naan if you're feeling hungry! Enough to feed a horse, great quality, great value...

I ate there last Saturday lunchtime. The service was friendly and fine, and the food was ok, but uninspiring. I stayed a while, as I had time to kill, and for the whole period I was the only diner in the place. Although they were doing moderately lively take-away business. I got the impression that Saturday lunchtime was a slow... More

It's a nice and elegant place in South Kensington. I was there at lunch with my family and we had very good Indian food. Service is fine and prices are expensive .

We stopped by around 10 something at night after a show in West End. Couldn't find anyplace else serving food and we were starving. This place was on our walk back to the flat. It served its purpose of feeding us late, but the tikka masala, naan and daal were all pretty uninspired...like out of the jar sauce and microwaved... More

VERY BAD. Ordered a take-away. I don't think chicken can be drier. Saag paneer was bad, too. Okra dish mush as horribly overcooked. Mango chutney had a funny aftertaste. AVOID.

Given many chances but won't be returning. Chicken is consistently dry, plasticky rice.. Takeaway is always longer than they say also..

We ate between 7.30 and 9 after a long day in the office. We were a large table of around 15, but experienced quick and efficient service and all the food was piping hot. My starter of Chicken Chat was excellent, with just a little tasty kick. My main of Chicken Jalfrezi was hot and tasty, and the naan was... More
