Undoubtedly the best Indian meal I have eaten in the UK. Fabulous menu, fabulous location, fabulous staff/service and very good value indeed. Dishes were beautifully spiced and the whole dining experience was great. Excellent for families also. Daughter declared that is was 'far better than anything she had in Brick Lane' !

We started off we were late and lost so rang the restaurant up and told them which they were absolutely fine about and held the table for us for 20 minutes! The staff were so friendly and helpful, a little slow at times but it was busy so it was understandable. THE most beautiful view out the windows, gorgeous flowers... More

St Katherines Dock is a beautiful area of London very close to Tower Bridge and I was looking forward to a meal with my son during a visit. We did not book in advance but the place wasn't busy so got a table with relative ease. Service was casual verging on the non-existent and we were not offered a drink... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for many years, the restaurant has a beautiful setting in St Katherine Docks, one of the best Punjabi restaurants for authentic Indian food, the mixed grill is amazing and I have always found the service to be very friendly and attentive. Already looking forward to my next visit soon.
