“Excellent meal, superb service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Are here with 2 work colleagues one mid week evening in Jan. From the initial booking to paying we were treated very well. The food although pricey is wonderful. Lovely one bite amuse bouche followed by the most exquisite tiny poppadoms, chutneys & pickes. All 3 starters were excellent, can highly recommend the paneer, fine Indian dining at its best. Again all 3 mains were very much enjoyed and the lamb lababdar (?) was wonderful despite one piece of lamb being a little under-cooked for my taste. The service was exceptional, discreet but attentive. Including a couple of bottles of beers each it worked out £40 a head which is a fair price for such wonderfully tasteful, well presented and beautiful food. I can highly recommend. The restaurant was a little quiet whilst we dined but this not detract from an excellent evening experience.

“A real treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Visited Lasan with my husband and two sons (aged 15 and 10) to celebrate a special occasion, and the whole experience was brilliant. From the welcome, to the superb food (Afghani Lamb is divine), the close but not fussy attention to our needs made it a real treat. And to top it all, the head waiter organised a special sharing plate desert for my son, at no charge, which made him smile from ear to ear. Yes, it's an expensive lunchtime location, but in my opinion, it was worth every penny.

“5 stars all round...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

The service in this restaurant was outstanding, very efficient. The food was hot and well presented with portions of protein being surprisingly large. I opted for the duck which was cooked to perfection no large layers of fat and was tender. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that cares about food and understands quality. Cant wait to return!
