As alone diner visiting late on a Saturday evening I thought I mat struggle to get a table but it was no problem. Very busy, a great atmosphere in the place, I had a potatoes and aubergine curry spiced to my liking, food came quickly, Staff were attentive, and genuine. Great little spot.

We had visited this place today evening for a dinner. Two families, means 4 adults and 2 child. The food was good, service was prompt, but the real dampener came when my wife asked for a finger bowl which is normally provided in any decent restaurants in India. The reply came in a snap, in chaste Hindi, Is it your... More

Having tried and failed to get in to a few restaurants on the South Bank we decided to try The Coriander as it was on our way home. Great choice. The staff were very freindly and although we had quite a wait for our food, the restaurant was very busy with both dine in and take away clients, we were... More

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.
