I booked a party of ten here for our Christmas dinner after two friends recommended it to me and we were all very pleased. The restaurant is underground in a vault-like setting which creates a cosy atmosphere away from the hussle and bussle of the city above. After some initial drinks and poppadoms and despite some confusion at the ordering... More

We had booked a table for 12 for our team's Christmas dinner. From the moment we arrived the service was horrible. There were only 11 seats, the waiter semi-forced us to all take platters for starters, they brought the incorrect Naan, etc.. The food itself was ok-ish, but our evening was soon to take a sudden turn for he worse.... More

The waiter took the desert menu out of our hands and told us we needed to leave as there was another party waiting! At no point where we told that we had to be done by 8:45 for our 7pm table. The waiting staff were incredibly rude to us and the whole experience completely ruined the evening. AVOID

The India is a nice restaurant set in the vaults under an office building near Cannon Street. The staff are very friendly and have a great knowledge of their diverse menu. The duck jalfrezi is my personal favourite. Great venue for a business meal or with family and friends.

During my lunch break I went for lunch at The India and I was not disappointed! As soon I walked into the restaurant I was greeted by a receptionist/hostess which I was impressed with as curry houses usually don't have a hostess. I was seated very quickly and my order was taken efficiently and promptly with politeness and even an... More

Went here the other evening with some friends. Could have easily missed it, since it's not that impressive from the outside - all that's visible from the street is the front desk. However, on stepping inside we were taken downstairs to the actual restaurant, which is located in a series of cellars - making a pretty massive space. The food... More

Our office is 20 feet away from the India, and with a 50% off token, eight of us went after work for a 7.30pm sitting. The entrance is the only above-ground element and you then go downstairs into the low vaulted ceiling restaurant. Even on a Wednesday night it was about 60% full and it can take a lot of... More

Tucked away near Cannon St station, in a side street is this great little place down the stairs in an underground setting. Food is good, prices good and if booked through OpenTable discounts are available.

Food here is above average for an indian in london. Food was fresh, and flavours and textures were very nice.Portion sizes are on the slightly smaller side however. Decor, service and ambience was excellent.

Always known it was there but never been due to the amount of Indian Restaurants in and around the City and was pleasantly surprised by everything, the decor, the food and the service are impeccable. I had the Lamb Korahi which was incredible! Used Tastecard however. even without this would have been Great Value for Money!
