“Authentic Indian Food - Dhaba Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Repeated visits to this restaurant keeps you satiated with respect to homely Indian food. I keep visiting London often and make it a point that whenever I feel I need Indian fare or when ever my fellows including clients or partners express their desire for authentic Indian Curry this is the place. Located bang opposite to Houslow West Station Market Street. You get consistently good food irrespective of the time of day. So when you are next around Heathrow and feel like having homely Indian food, catch a tube and get down at Houslow West station and walk to this great food joint.

“Best Indian in UK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

We have been coming here for 5 years whenever we pass by Hounslow. We have been trying to find something closer to home that is this good with no such luck. Food is consistently great and love the fact that it always full regardless of day or time you visit. The fact you can take your own booze is amazing and makes it unbeatable in terms of value for money. Service is fast and friendly, just what you'd expect from a restaurant where you can both eat well for under £30.

“GREAT Indian food close to the West Hounslow underground station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We were staying at Heathrow and found this restaurant on my trip advisor mobile ap. The restraunt is on the same street that the West Hounslow Picadilly Line station exits onto about a block and a half back toward Heathrow. We go there just in time to not have to wait. By the time we were finished there was a line of about 10 folks waiting for a table. We are from California and were the only people in the place with white skin. We were on our way to Uganda for a couple of weeks so though this was a great segway into cultural difference. We did receive a few looks like what are you doing here but that could just be because we looked different than everyone else.

Everything we had was amazing. Wish we had a place like this where we live. Would definitely go here again. Try it!

“Used to love this Karahi Express... but something has changed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Im a massive fan of Karahi Express and used to go Hounslow West all the time. Fantastic food and great atmosphere.

The problem is the food is now more sweet than it should be and the chilli paneer is in no way chilli.

Major challenge is parking and waiting time.

Recently started going to the Hayes one and i prefer the food there.

“Simply the Best Indian in UK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

our family has visited this restaurant twice now and both times the experience has been extraordinary. You can tell by the takeout line-up that you have come to the right place. The wonderful aromas of the authentic Indian spices are the first thing that captivate your senses. The service is prompt and the owner is a delightful fellow who obviously knows how to make his guests feel welcome. My kids loved seeing the chefs prepare dinner right there for us to see. No dirty hidden kitchens. You can tell by the number of copycat shops in the area that these guys got it right. Others have tried to put their own spin on the name but after trying one we realised that there is no comparison. If you've ever tried Indian food before, you will immediately notice that you have been eating watered down versions of what it should taste like. Karahi Express is the real deal!
