Really enjoyed both or starter dishes and the main course. Onion bhajis cooked to perfection and chicken dish very tasty. Interesting variety of main courses in addition to traditional dishes and hotness just right. Light, fluffy naan breads. Service a little slow this evening, perhaps due to high demand for take-away, but otherwise couldn't fault it.

I have been to the Coriander a lot of times, as I regularly stay in Vauxhall with work. I have been here with groups of colleagues and eaten on my own. I have always experienced good service. There is a good range of dishes to choose from, I have tried lots of different dishes and have never been disappointed -... More

I enjoyed the Mixed Meat Grill with Cobra Beers. I suggest this dish because it can taste wonderful with no hot spices. My friend ordered this with no spice, mine was spicy so we shared. DO CALL AHEAD, go to the pub across the street and they will come get you!!! Great food, good prices, and friendly staff.

I've been to dozens of Indian restaurants and have days many times that one us the best in town, or the best I have had. The Coriander served what is probably the best Indian food I have ever had. My daughter and I went there for dinner at 6pm on a Friday night. It was not crowded but steadily got... More

This is a small curry house that can be relied upon for good food and beer. I have eaten at The Coriander about a dozen times and have never had anything but a good meal. The only reservation is that it can be longer than expected before the food is served. I appreciate that good food takes time to cook... More

Having lived in the West Midlands for a longtime, one of the few things we really miss is a proper Brummie curry. London seems to be all about posh curry or throw backs to the 70's. The Coriander has restored my faith. The onion salad is delicious. Mixed grill with a wet curry was a good combination. The house wine... More

The standard of the food here was very good however as a single woman who travel regularly on business I did find the service quite poor and had some difficulty in gaining the attention of waiters who could clearly see me and gave more attention to neighbouring tables . For this reason I will not be returning.

Went for early evening good balance of flavours in there dishes. I had Tandoori mixed grill, the meat was soft and tender and the prawns were fresh and tasty. The lab in wife's curry was slightly tough though. An enjoyable evening of good flavours

Stopped in for a casual dinner with a friend who lives close by. Location: 4/5 - a five minute walk from the Vauxhall station on the tube. Only issue is no consistently available parking if you're driving. Environment/Decor- 3/5. It's a cozy place. The music is just right. I've always wanted to go to a restaurant with a traditional indian... More
