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

I love Indian food. Our driver on the Stonehenge tour highly recommended this place. And it did not disappoint at all. I thoroughly enjoyed all the dishes we had. We ordered the plain and garlic naan, chicken marsala (not on menu but accommodated request), a lamb dish, 3 vegetarian dishes: paneer in tomato cream sauce (the best!!!), eggplant that was... More

The first time we ordered at the Coriander in Dec 15 the food was really good. However the Food most recently in May 16 was really different. The flavours were lacking and there was very little meat in the curry dishes we ordered. We ordered using Hungry House and the food took well over an hour.

Staying 2 minutes away at the Vauxhall travelodge. Really lovely food. The chicken tikka was out of this world. Really filling and good portions. We felt guilty as we didn't manage to finish our mains but it was only because we were so full! Very busy but still attentive. Staff were friendly and we had some giggles with them. Left... More

Staying in the same neighborhood in Lambeth borough, we passed this lovely Indian restaurant a couple of times en route to/from a large Tesco grocery store, and noticed they had a Sunday buffet from 1-5 p.m. which we decided to try. It was quiet, calm, and tastefully decorated. Our server was an Indian lady by way of North Carolina! We... More

I don't know how this restaurant survives as there was only 3 people dining yesterday lunchtime. The food is good, the staff helpful and friendly and the atmosphere is good. There is a separate business lunch menu, although we had to ask for it, which is good value for money. A main course, including half a naan bread and an... More

Live on the same street as this puppy and it never fails to please our craving for an indian takeaway! Service is fast, professional and the food you get is of great quality. There's some good deals too every now and then. Some the starters are absolutely the best in London!
