“Best Indian restaurant outside and inside India”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I have spent many months and multiple visits to India and I love India food! We have very good restaurants in the uk but Achari is outstanding, their mix of spices in the sauces are fresh and wonderfully balanced, and the meat they use is freshly cooked and succulent, truly delicious.
JUST GO THERE! I fact if you are flying from heathrow allow extra time and be sure to go.

“Lovely meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We called in here on our way to Heathrow, we were actually heading for another Indian restaurant in the area but liked the look of this one as we drove past, so decided to try it out.

The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the restaurant was modern and clean. The pickle tray was excellent with plenty of choice and the starters/mains/nan we had were very tasty and hot. The dish the waiter recommended was perfect.

The Mango Lassi could have been a bit colder but that didn’t spoil a lovely meal, and we would certainly go again if we’re in the area.

“Good business dinner with colleagues”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

12 of us descended on this restaurent on a Monday night with no reservation. The restaurent was full but after a round of drinks we had a table. The food was great and service not ad considering the number of diners. We will definitely return as it ad a welcome change from hotel food.

“local & loving it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Everyone's Indian resturant is the best Indian, well I dare you to not agree this is one of the best you have tasted. If you are ever staying in the London Heathrow Airport area I highly recommend you take the opportunity to try the food either by dinning or takeaway you wont be disappointed.

Staff are friendly, and the resturant is modern, but also has the influence of India.

“Disappointed with reviews”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We have friends came from oversea looking for an Indian meal. After a lot of searching and reading of reviews online, we thought this should be the best choice. The reality is, this is worst than average.
Quality of food is really Anglo Indian average if not below.
Surrounding is tight and not much atmosphere. But for a small size restaurant, it is ok to be fair to say.
The real killing for score is the service.
We have been chased and pressed on drinks even before we sat down, asked again when menu is given. Once they have given you the menu, they were not keen to take your order. We have waited for 20 minutes for our starters!! Of course, they kept asking you for any more drink in between. The worst waiting time is for the main course. 35 minutes plus!!! If they were very busy and fully packed with customers, we could understand. The fact is, we booked at 20:45 and was the last table turned up for that night; and at that time, the restaurant is only Half-full. If we were looking for a wine bar, this may be a different comment.
Not attentive completely. Except the time you asked for the bill and thank you was then given.
Value for price? We will not be there again at our own choice. Does it tell you the answer?
