Great Indian Food - But this was crowded

As the heading stated, the food was really good. A great selection of Indian and Nepali food. I went there with my son for his birthday dinner. We have been here a couple of times before. My only problem is there is not enough room, and one is sat elbow to elbow with others. This does not take away... read more

Order from here at least once a week and food was generally good however, recently orders have been consistently late despite ordering before they open and have been later than the revised time notification. Last night's order was ordered at around 5:40pm and after getting a notification that the order would be delayed by 15 minutes which would arrive at... More

I ordered in twice from this restaurant and was very pleased both times. They have good vegetarian options as well, besides Indian, Bangladeshi & Nepali fare.

I've eaten here at least 10 times and got takeaway similarly often. Apart from one notable disaster (lamb that had been marinated in chilli to the point of inedibility) the food has always been very good. It's not in the top flight of interesting Indian restaurants, but there are some unexpected dishes on the menu and it's worth branching out... More

I was here for dinner alone and I was shocked to see that the restaurant staff was more interested in serving the British guests. The food was good cant deny that, but I would'nt go back just because of the biased behavior

As anyone knows, Vauxhall is currently undergoing a huge transformation, with many skyscrapers going up whilst squeezing out much of the local colour and charm of the area. However, one place where charm is in abundance is the Kennington branch of The Coriander. As soon as you open the door you know it has the right ambience: subdued lighting, music,... More

I've had many many Indian meals and usually order saag paneer. Hard to go wrong with that dish usually. I was wrong. It was disgusting! The spinach was made with a very sweet creamy sauce that tasted horrible. I've never had such a bad saag paneer. I had two bites and left it. My friend has a chicken dish that... More

This is a cozy, soft lit, and genuinely great Indian restaurant. The prices are good and the food was amazing. It's a quick walk from the vauxhall tube stop. Would love to eat here again.
