Stopped in here while away with work and I think it is honestly the worst curry I've ever had. Ordered chutney tray with two poppadoms, to be fair they turned up immediately but poppadoms with cold and only 3 choices in the tray. The mango chutney was watery. More annoying the was the three waiters laughing and eating and picking... More

We asked our hotel concierge for an Indian Restaurant near by and he recommended this. It is a small restaurant, service was pleasant and the food about average. My spouse thought it to be very good. Unfortunately I cannot eat much curry and of course that is one of the major spices used in Indian cooking. The Naan Bread was... More

We liked this place. The food is well cooked and has plenty of flavour and pop. The prices are reasonable and the servings generous. Staff are a bit over bearing and pushy but look past that.

The waiters were very unfriendly, the service was not great. The chicken tikka and chicken tikka masala were good, the veggie dishes were very oily. Naan was great. First Indian in London this visit so was the best so far ;-0

I cannot reccomend this restaurant. The waiters became exceedingly rude when we did not want to follow their suggestions. The food was literally dropped on the table (onto the silverware!), and when were done eating, the waiter said "finished?" in an aggressive tone, and grabbed the plate without waiting for a response. The quality of the food was not bad,... More

I have a silly habit to always start my visit in London by having a first night dinner at Maharaja. About five years ago or so the service was always bad but food has always been very good - as has the service been for the last years. So a recommendation from me!

We actually liked this restaurant which we chose because it had 5/5 of cleanliness. I found out later that it is under the same management since 1967 ! The restaurant is quite elegant and clean. I would have liked a little more decoration - it was almost too simple and elegant. The food was absolutely nice. Should I find myself... More

Has to be the worst Indian restaurant i have ever eaten in. Food was at best average BUT the service was absolutely terrible. They obviously are not worried about repeat business because we would never set foot over their door again! Staff were rude, unhelpful & generally unhappy, the last straw for me was when we had paid, the waiter... More

Don't go there. Service is terrible and 10 % service charge will be on the bill even if you don't want to leave a tip. The menu is opened for you at the most expensive page en staff will do everything to prevent you from looking at the cheaper meals yourself. Leftovers from one plate were put at another person's...

We have eaten in many Indian restaurants and not found one as unpleasant as this one for a long time. I thought times had changed ! The service was curt and off hand and the food was tastless. The biriany was very suspect as to what was in it. Worst of all the meal repeated for the remainder of the... More
