We had ordered a table but had to wait for 30 mins before we were seated, then another 30 mins before our food arrived. The food was good , but I so hungry by then I would have ate a scabby kebab.

We were recommended to try this restaurant by close friends and im so pleased that they did, the restaurant is spacious very clean, the staff attentive but not over overbearingly so, and the food was fabulous, very generous sized dishes, and so tasty, the meat almost melted in your mouth. Cant wait to go again!

The taste was mind-blowing. Each meal you get there is fantastic on its own. It really feels like you are in India.

We visited this lovely place for lunch on Sunday and what an experience. We ordered the set lunch with one vegetarian and one non- veg Thali, and what a treat! Tasty, spicy and made with such good ingredients. The wonder treated us as though we were family and the staff were all first class. Well worth visiting, then stroll around... More

When I come to London, eating here is a must. I love the setting, the restaurant and the food. It never disappoints. This visit I was with my daughter, who's been with me before, her husband and my partner neither of whom had been before. We all thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The food was mouth-wateringly good, the service excellent and... More

The restaurant came highly recommended by a colleague. The first thing you notice is the stunning location followed by the superb decor. The food itself was a delight. Absolutely delicious, generous portions and beautifully presented. The service was fantastic and we all can not wait to return!

This is a very presentable restaurant near the Dickens pub. The food is consistently of good quality, and the portions generous. In fact the rice portions are really for two. My wife likes to order several things between 4 of us and then eat some of everyone's. She especially liked the home style curry which is on the menu. If... More

Great, original dishes served beautifully. However the surly waiting staff really didn't match the high standards of food. Even the head waiter didn't lead by example with his behaviour. It was clear that as we weren't regulars, we did not deserve their time.
