Took our non punjabi Asian friends out for dinner at Kanchans. Had the set Christmas menu that e same sauce base was used for the non-veg dishes and the paneer. So all the food tasted the same. We asked for the food to be spicy and we're told we could have green chillies. The veg option feared a little better... More

We were recommended Kanchan by friend and they came with us for our first visit. Now it's unforgetfull memory with Kanchan. Food quality is worst. We ordered Okra and it wasn't even cooked properly. When we asked staff to check the quality they initially hasitated but when we made them eat what they served, they realized what they are upto.... More

What a great place to go! I went there with a work colleague who knew the restaurant. I let him pick from the menu as he has been going there for many years. I can't eat very hot food (chilli) so we asked for spicy but not hot. It was just perfect. It was the most flavoursome Indian meal I... More

I really can't believe those slating this place are going to the same restaurant as us (and it is Gants Hill branch I refer to). We ration ourselves to no more than once a month, as we do not want to tire of it, and wish it to remain a treat. We fill in the gaps with our local Wanstead... More

The atmosphere was alright. The service was not professional but done by a very pleasing lady. The food was average. The butter chicken is the closest to the authentic that I've tasted in London. The seasoning could have been better. The portions were good but I felt they were over priced

I normally am not the biggest fan of Indian restaurants, mainly because you seem never to feel the love in the food. After being surprised by a place I went to in Leicester It inspired me not to knock my friends suggestion to go to another Indian restaurant within 7 days. So having over the years heard how great this... More

Brilliant to have such a good restaurant so close by. I generally used to visit restaurants in Central London for evening meals etc but have found myself opting for Kanchans more and more so. This restaurant is one of the better Indian restaurants in London. The look of the place is very good, the food is very authentic and tasty,... More

The restaurant has a nice feel and decour too it but the food itself was average. The portions are relatively small but ok in taste. I have been better places for a lot cheaper. I did enjoy the food but it was not as good as i expected. Not value for money in my honest opinion. The service was ok.... More
