Great value

A very good authentic Indian meal for people on a budget. There is only one set menu a day (tonight it was fish curry) but it has all the trimmings, salad, veggies, Dahl, nan bread, Indian tea etc and you can go back for seconds! Unbeatable value for money and good quality. Recommended if you're... read more

We came for the evening buffet at the Indian YMCA. It is a hostel's dinning hall, self-service where one can eat as much as one can swallow. The food is quite tasty. There isn't a great selection (plain rice, a curry or two, dessert, tea, some sort of bread and I've probably missed an item or two). It feels like... More

Authentic Indian food and very good value for money. Cafeteria like, but a great place for a quick lunch.

The food is average or better. If the goal is to have top notch indian food you can venture out. Its ideal for people who live in. Its dine in self service.

One of the real achievements of my last visit to London was a stop at this place of somewhat legendary status. We arrived just at noon and were at nearly the head of the line. The food is served from a kitchen buffet, plates of rice, small dishes of lamb and chicken curries, pappadums, chutneys, etc. Tea & water seem... More

Took me back to my college days... but the food here is a million times better. Basic, unpretencious, inexpensive, but excellent food with a home cooked feel.

Indian YMCA Dining Hall provides a good quality, nutritional meal after a hard day tramping around London. As it says in the title, it is an Indian Dining Hall so don't expect much in the way of choice (or waiter service, or reservations) - you turn up at 7pm, hand over £8/head and then serve yourself from a choice of...
