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...

Very basic décor, ambience etc., but that's of course not the point here. Food is good quality, tasty, delicious and venue is convenient. What more could you want for £8? I will certainly keep coming back.

A friend had told me to visit for cheap authentic curry, so I dragged 4 friends with me. I had a few concerned faces has we entered what is pretty much a school canteen but everyone really enjoyed a well spiced chicken curry with rice and paratha. There aren't many places in London that you can get a great feed... More

I visited this dining hall for breakfast and dinner which was included in the stay package. It provides good buffet menu with delicious items. Even if you are staying anywhere else, it is worth to visit this place at least once!

Very surprisingly, it was a very different experience than I expected On entrance, they asked me to pay for the buffet food; 8 ponds. I paid and came in. It was 2 options: rice with vegetables (veg beriani) and rice... More
