We were seriously craving Indian food and were told this vicinity was where to find it. Tandoori Raj was the first (only?) place we found, very quiet inside but very gracious staff who tried hard to please (apparently our first round of cocktails exhausted the...More

As a family of four, we ate early in the evening. The prices in the window are not the prices you are charged; that is my first complaint. The 'restaurant' is cheap and tacky - the tables are on top of one another. The curries...More

Don't be put off by the look of this little restaurant, or the lack of customers, it was absolutely beautiful. Fresh cooked food, brilliant staff, spotless, just first class.

My wife and I went for tea. We were the only ones there, now we understand why. The food was very ordinary and for what we got, seriously overpriced.

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
