The atmosphere and decor of the Bayswater restaurant leaves this one in the dust, but the food and service are on-par. As is usual for our group we ordered a variety of dishes from all sections of the menu. Everything was delicious and well-prepared. A couple of the "not spicy at all" dishes did have a bit of heat, so... More

This is not 'destination dining', it's good simple and delicious Indian street food. Families, theatre goers and singles populate the tables. It's well designed and comfortable enough. It's unpretentious and the food is well cooked. It's also reasonably priced.

Really great variety of genuine curries, street food and grills. Service was slick and friendly and the cost won't break the bank. Also good to be given a proper linen napkin and fresh cutlery. Worth visiting if you are In the area.

Been for the first time in this restaurant but it worth every penny! Delicious food, friendly staff, cozy atmosphere. I read some reviews about prices being higher than other similar location: It might be slightly , but I would reccomend that place to any others!

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
