Mixed Meat Grill is wonderful!

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.

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

As a walk in we had to wait 15minutes to be seated, we sat and waited in the meantime and looked at the menu. The staff were friendly and were happy to explain dishes. All food was well presented and tasty, I liked that there was a wide range of curries as well as the traditional favourites and our whole... More

We came upon this place by chance when driving past. I pointed it out to my hungry curry-adoring husband and he promptly chucked a sharp left at the next turning and we got parked straightaway as it was the weekend. Welcome was good even though we had not booked. We were the first to arrive and it was a little... More
