Brilliant authentic Indian food with the best, warmest service of any restaurant I have been to in the U.K. the manager Wasel is a credit to himself and the place. Greeted with a handshake and always offers a free drink at the end. Brilliant restaurant.

Staff were very accommodating. They managed to squeeze us in on a busy evening. Best to book ahead. After delicious food in a lovely atmosphere, we were offered a drink of our choice on the house to celebrate New Year. This gesture was much appreciated. You are really made to feel special here.

North west London is not well served for good restaurants but this Indian restaurant is a gem. The star attraction apart from the delicious food is the Maitre D', Wasel, who is an exemplary host.

The service is phenomenal, especially the maitre d' who has to be one of the very best... More

All I can imagine is that people who rave about this place don't know any better, or just think because it's highly priced it must be good. Its actually very average, at best. Nothing wrong with service, but the food being produced isn't great. Samosas were bland. Lamb jalfrezi was much better at the local cheaper curry house, and the... More

Having heard great things about this restaurant I am friends were keen to try it and booked a table in advance. The menu is interesting with a lot of non-standard dishes on offer. The food itself however seemed pretty average - nothing wrong with it, but it's probably not worth the prices charged. The service was also very fast -... More

In the mood for vibrant, Indian spicing? Go elsewhere. This place served food fit for a bland palate. Nice enough decor, decent service in a deafeningly noisy space that made conversation a challenge. We won't be going back.
