Oh yes, we do like this little gem very much. If we could, we would have been in the Spice of India more than the 2 times we squeezed in this London visit. The restaurant is a nice cozy size, a bit narrow and smallish,...More

We had a wonderful early dinner here on a recent trip. First, the service was gracious and quick. We ordered several mains, sides, naan bread and pickles to go with it all. The lamb biryani was excellent, the eggplant very good, although it could have...More

Their lamb tikka jalfrezi was delicious but thought the butter chicken was too sweet. Nice service but only downside was their weren’t any high chairs so not a family friendly restaurant

The food was okay, nice portion sizes, and okay prices. The waiter was slow and not very helpful when we tried to order, so service could definetly be better! There were no smiles, and we did not feel particularly welcome to be honest.

I seem to recall that the menu mentioned Halal cuisine, but perhaps all items are not. The best bet is to email them directly and inquire, they are likely at least partly Halal. Thank you, good day.
