Stumbled across this while staying in hotel for work. Location was fine, just under the subway from tube station. Decor was horrendous, waiters seemed friendly enough. My pint was served out of a can. Menu was average, food was a big let down. Didnt taste of anything. Seemed like it had been microwaved. Chappati was the best part of my... More

Went to the restaurant as I saw it while walking in the mall and was feeling like a curry. The food was average at best. But the main problem was a mouse ran across the carpet floor while I was eating my meal. I pointed it out to the waiter and he said it must have come in from the... More

London Bridge station was closed so the train diverted to Elephant & Castle and, desperate for a curry, we ended up here. The location is rather unattractive and the restaurant decor is not much better. The food was good but not exceptional although the portions were good. The service was mixed: an unsmiley and un-welcoming manager was balanced by a... More

I go into this restaurant about once a week as the staff are always very friendly and it is very cheap, especially for the amount of food you receive. Ignore all the bad reviews, as I have never had a bad experience in this restaurant. I have tried many Indian restaurants over London and this is definitely my favourite!

Good food, reasonably priced, let down by lack of atmosphere and unfriendly staff. Only one other table occupied when I had dinner here. The location on the edge of the Elephant & Castle roundabout doesn't help.

Been there with a friend after a long day in london felt like having some indian food, although found the staff a bit welcoming but overall experience was spoiled due to limited non veg dishes in the platter which were not even fresh..naans were very hard and when asked the manager can we just go out for a quick fag...

I have ordered food from here a few times to be delivered which was excellent, on the down side I thought I would give the restaurant a try. It is dark and gloomy, we opted for the buffet, service was on the grumpy side when ever we needed something which always puts me off... the carpet could do with a... More

The decor is not smart, not new and not clever and the location - perched on the edge of the Elephant & Castle shopping centre - makes it an unlikely choice. BUT this is my favourite local Indian restaurant. The menu is standard curry house and includes all the usual suspects done well. The prices are low - making this... More
