Expensive for just average food. £20 per head With non alcoholic drink. Don't think they have an Indian chef!

Dear Sir/Madam, We feel that this is a false review and full of mistruths and query as to why you would post such a review. We offer authentic Indian cuisine. To state otherwise as in your posting is a deliberate false statement. Furthermore, our buffet is £10.95/head (not including drinks). Our buffet for readers of Trip Advisor who do want... More

Table reservation made for five people, no problems when I rang to increase to eight people. Great choice for expert curry lovers, polite staff, wine not too expensive. Everyone enjoyed the meal and at £30 per head for starters, main course and sided including wine....was not too bad. Discretionary Graturity added at 12.5%

This is simply a great Indian restaurant. Since e demise of The Vari in Newington this place has taken star billing as the finest purveyor or Indisn food for miles (I suspect if The Vari had continued, The Dharjeeling Heights would still have been superior). The interior is modern chic and immaculate. The service has always been excellent, putting many... More
