Small portions for overpriced dishes. The service is a bit weird. The food on it's own wasn't bad, but small portions for the prices they charge. Overall not really our thing, we had better and cheaper indian food in other London places.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
