Ordered a delivery, took about 40 mins to come but was well worth the wait. Delivery guy was really polite and I wish I tipped him more. We had a chicken jalfrezi, pilou rice, cheese and garlic nann bread and korma sauce, all of which were delicious! This meal was shared between 2 people and was the perfect amount. I... More

I am a regular here and the restaurant never disappoints. They have very good food and it is always reasonable value. I would recommend here, it is never very busy and you are guaranteed a good meal.

We enjoyed another meal at this restaurant this weekend and they excelled once again. The waiters are lovely and now remember our drinks and favourite dishes when we go here. We live over 35 minutes away but make the trip with friends just for their food, by far the best in London. Look forward to going back soon!

We tried this place when it first opened because it had originally been run by the same people in Forest Hill. We have since been returning and will travel out of our way to eat here. Our friends and us always compare every Indian we have to this place and nothing has ever come close to beating them. We regularly... More

I ordered from them because they had a good amount of vegetarian options and not just "vegetable _____". The restaurant delivered well over an hour before the time I asked them to and when I pointed this out the driver says to me "It does say that - Oh well!" and leaves! No apology from him or the restaurant and... More

Went for a meal with my partner at the new dewaniam we really enjoyed the food and service. It's a very modern establishment and very spacious so not always full on a weekday so the waiter told us. Food was fresh and price was fair aswell. We will return Jeff and ann

Absolutely disgusting service!!! I live in a block of private flats and called for a delivery to be told it would be one hour. An hour and a half later it finally turns up and I get a call from the restaurant saying drivers will not deliver into the building and I will have to go out and get it.... More

Ordered takeaway on Sunday evening at 8pm. 2 phone calls later and with no apology the food turned up 2 hours later - stone cold! None of the curries were labelled correctly and the 'keema' naan contained no filling. After re-heating the food it was mediocre at best. It gets worse! I went on the just-eat website to write a...

Now I love a curry and for years travelled to Tooting to a couple of my favourites there. I found New Dewanium on the Tastecard website, decided to give it a go and haven't gone back to Tooting since. The menu has a great selection, and lots for vegetarians like myself. The classic currys are so nice and saucy compared... More

Really confused by this place but generally impressed. Arrived Sunday evening at 7.30 as only people in large, cold restaurant. The only waiter took our order and managed to find us some poppadums fairly swiftly. Five beers took about 10 minutes to arrive. So far unimpressed. But things got better and better! More people arrived by 8.00pm and the heating... More
