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

If your idea of a fun filled evening is to have a head waiter who treats you like something he just scraped off his shoe, to wait for 15 minutes before you receive a menu, another ten minutes before they bring your companion their menu, to then be told that the first three things you want to order are off/unavailable/not...
