Always good quality.

We used to attend here for medical meetings on a regular basis. The food has always been excellent and the service very good. It always seems to be busy.

I visited Kanchans on Tuesday evening with my work colleague. The first thing that stood out to me was the lovely scent in the restaurant and the warm greeting we received. It was as though the staff could not do enough to ensure that we had a wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delicious and I will definitely be returning.

The guy who appears to be manager and taking main orders is rubbish, has forget to smile in his cradle. I am here with my family to celebrate my daughters birthday but decided to go elsewhere for main course as the customer service is so so poor. I would rather be somewhere welcomed with a warm smile!

I don't understand the low ratings given here. Have been several times over the years, the last around December '14 with foodie friends who were very impressed. We have generally found it good to excellent. The first point is that the menu is not your average Indian. Am not an expert on the various cuisines, so can't characterise it other... More

At one time this place was always packed, that's because it WAS very good. I have been here recently on a number of occasions and it is evident by the number of empty tables and waiters looking for something to do that things are not as they used to be. The whole place needs a revamp, decor, menus, the lot.... More

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
