“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We came across this small delightful quiet square and tried this Indian. I live in London and eat Indian very often. This was the best I've ever had! So light and tasty. The portions are perfectly sized and the rice is amazing. We didn't try the set menu but I saw the dishes on the table next to us and they looked divine. Don't miss this place. Sod the mussels.

“Don't waste your time here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Really disappointed in every respect. Food isn't even cooked fresh, as admitted by staff. They couldn't accommodate us as vegetarians, and said it wasn't fair to ask the chef to make anything specific for us, even after we offered to wait and even pay extra! I think they forget we're not there for a free meal.

“The Most Elegant Indian meal I`ve eaten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Quite simply it was the best Indian meal I`ve eaten fragrant and spicey with attention to detail of the ingredents ( no reconstituted chicken cubes here! ) the food was served slowly and tasted great.
We have eaten at lots of curry houses in the Uk and this is up with Chuntey Marys in London for freshness. Cost....This is not a Brit curry house, it is not a place to go to after some beers for a cheap fill up.

“May 21st - Worst Indian food unfortunately”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

When we went to this restaurant, we were really looking forward to a nice Asian meal. We expected poppadoms as a usual starter with sauces and salad but instead we were given aubergines in batter which wasn't want we wanted. Then we ordered the lamb as a main course for the two of us expecting some kind of curry and then it arrived as half cooked rack of lamb chops. We had that with a bottle of wine and the bill came to 109.00 euros so not good value at all. if you want an authentic indian meal, don't go there.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We had a hearty meal at Bhavani. The food was fresh & service was quick, great ambience. i must add this is one of the most authentic Indian food that i found in Europe. The place rocks, I would highly recommend.
