I came here for a quick lunch. They had a lunch set for 9.90 dine in which included a curry with a side dish together with rice and naan. The chicken curry and spinach I ordered were tasty but a tad oily. Rice was also slight oily.

The prices are modest and my beef stroganoff was delicious. The restaurant is one big open space beneath the tracks. This makes it very noisy. The service is chaotic, but fast once they spot you.

The food was tasty but this place is totally overrated. Out of all the Indian restaurants in London I don't understand how this comes up so high! Staff was cold and brought us poppadums without telling us they'd charge extra, when I asked for water to drink they brought a 0,7 l bottle without asking (and opened it straight away).... More

A really interesting menu with plenty of new dishes to try. I loved my curry and am looking forward to going back again to try something else. Between 4 of us we had four curries, two naan, two pilau rice, two bottles of great wine and a bottle of beer. The bill was £33 each. We all felt the meal... More

Had a bit of a walk from Vauxhall Station, and came upon this place. We hadn't done our research on TripAdvisor, so we went in cold(btw, what did we do before TA?). Looked busy and clean so we gave it a shot. So glad we did. Asked for non-spicy food, and got it. However the food was hot in the... More

Delicious food and very nice people. We ordered both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes for takeout and our entire group enjoyed everything. We returned for a second night during our 1 week stay in London.

Eat in or Take Out, you won't be disappointed. This is a nice restaurant and the food is delicious and well worth the money that you pay for it. the portions are quite big so I warn you not to over do the starters as you won't eat your main course.

We found the food here to be fragrant and delicious, but too mild on the spices -- timid by comparison to most Indian you'll find in London. It is a lovely little family restaurant and does a terrific job with take-away. But do ask them to spice it up for you a bit, or you could be disappointed.

Delicious food and attentive, smiley service. Wonderful vegetarian options and terrific chicken/lamb mains. There are items on the menu not normally found in the average curry house. Try the Jhall, outstanding. Reasonably priced and efficient service. Will make this a regular eating venue following future visits to The Oval.

Visiting London for a week and wanted to have good Indian food one night of our otherwise self-catering stay at the Staybridge suites. Saw the the Coriander walking from the underground to our hotel. Outwardly it looks like a local cafe and not overly inviting. Google and TripAdvisor searches were favorable and indicated it might be a good place for... More
