My wife took me here for a birthday treat and I was not let down! Not only was the food the best Indian food we have ever had, it was some of the best food overall. The quality of the ingredients was exceptional and the flavours were perfect. Add to that the first class service and it made for a... More

Took my wife to Lasan to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were most impressed. As we arrived we were greeted by name at the door. The service was impeccible, attentive and unobtrusive. The food was the best we have tasted and beautifully presented. I can see why the chef has been invited to the Palace and Downing Street. Will... More

In a City deservedly famous for curries this restaurant for me tops the list. Lasan deserves all the accolades it gets. Every dish I have tried here is so delicious, well executed and the balance of spice is such a treat for the senses. It's critics claim the food is anglicised or perhaps more accurately Michelinised but who cares when... More

This place really a is cut above other high end Indian restaurants we've been to, although you do pay for it. I had the crab starter which was amazing, following by the beef which won the Gordon Ramsey fword. It was all fantastic and our waiter was very helpful and proffesional. The only thing I would say is we were... More

There have been many superlatives laid at the door of Lasan, least of all by Gordon Ramsay himself & judging by my experience the praise is entirely justified. For me this was the best Indian cooking I've had the privilege of enjoying & to add some perspective I'm comparing it to Benares & the Star of India which anyone would... More

We had been looking forward to this meal for a long time as we had booked back in February to celebrate a family achievement. We were greeted well and warmly and were initially very impressed with the host, who was knowledgable and exuded confidence in the menu.

Hi James N I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the sea bass after your initial enthusiasm for your warm welcome and your delicious starters. Sea bass is a very delicate fish which can easily be overcooked, as it was here.There seemed to be a misunderstanding and I understand that you rejected the offer of replacement sea bass, possibly because...

We had lunch here last week and it was faultless. From the warm friendly welcome and courteous service, through the delicious food to the restrained elegant decor we felt pampered. The food was excellent; lots of new ideas and novel dishes. The soft shell crab was a revelation, the elaichi beef was soft, tender and melting with flavour. My partners... More
