Well worth our visit. Very good food and for two of us we certainly had our moneys worth.The chefs are behind a little hatch which is directly behind some of the seating!

Four of us enjoyed a very good meal here while staying at a nearby B & B in May. Service was good and food very good. We ordered a good assortment of dishes and enjoyed them all. Would recommend.

This restaurant does not honour bookings, just first come first served. They would rather fill the restaurant than keep tables that are booked. Do not book - you have been warned !

A friend recommended I try this restaurant during my stay in London. Time well spent. The waiters were very friendly as soon as we entered the door. Helped us find the best dishes for the entire group. Adjusted the spicyness to all our tastes. Overall, an amazing experience. I wish I could go back all the time! Definitely a spot... More

Recommended to me by reception staff at my nearby hotel, I visited after work one evening. I got the only table left at the time I entered and ordered fairly quickly as I was hungry! I tried a Bangladeshi speciality, a Jhal. Delicious deep flavoured curry with plenty of kick, left me wanting more! The starter which was a seemingly... More

We have tried most of the indian restaurants around this area however always find ourselves coming back to the coriander. The food is consistently good and reasonably priced compared to its competition who offer a similar level of quality. The only draw back is that the staff can sometimes lack character and recognition which stops this restaurant being 5 stars.

I have been going here for a number of years and each time my visit does not disappoint. The staff are always welcoming and even remember you. The food is superb: last time I had the Coriander Sizzler and it was fantastic! The house wine is pretty good too and good value. Be sure to book up as it's popular.... More

We happened upon the Coriander when we had to switch trains at the Vauxhall station. The food was outstanding, very fresh and hot. The spice levels were as described.The nan was delicious. We really enjoyed our lunch.

As one of our local curry houses, we have visited on previous occasions and found the food excellent and well-priced. On this occasion a party of 14 of us were ably accommodated by the restaurant, although on arrival despite a booking being placed there was only seating available for 10 (granted we arrived 10 minutes late). This problem was soon... More

Fantastic quality and value for what appears from the outside to be a standard neighborhood curry house. Great tandoori specialties. Also, you can judge a good Indian restaurant by how much care they put into the veggie side dishes. Superlative saag aloo and paneer shashlik.
