Dil chad is a neighborhood restaurant for us and we were eagerly waiting for it to open, we visited on a weekday evening. The waiter has a lot of energy which is great as the restaurant was fairly quiet. The meal itself was disappointing, we...More

I've been to DILCHAD many times, before the refurbishment, and since it re-opened. I must say I'm baffled by the last comment. I have never been disappointed by their wonderful unique take on some of the most loved indian dishes throughout the years...surely a restaurant...More

Lured into this restaurant due to the great location, impressive looking bar (which is a red herring) and nice shop front. Though upon being seated realised this is a poorly executed and confused Indian eatery. It is not a dishoom or a gunpowder though clearly...More

This was once a great restaurant that had been closed for over a year for "refurbishment". Now finally open again, but only half the size of what it used to be. The menu is much reduced and has few of the classic Indian restaurant selections...More

Had not been here for at least a decade, so we decided to visit to relive old times. Although we were not disappointed with the food, it did not offer anything special over and above the normal Indian restaurant fare. Service was also rather mediocre....More

Cold plates which we requested to be changed. Waiter seemed irritated at this request. Plates came back tepid. The explanation for the cold plates was the weather conditions! No hot plates to keep your food warm so you need to eat fast before the food...More

Had a really good curry here with work colleagues. Staff good, Food was a toxin livelier than all of us expected though so maybe go down a level that you are used to! Cobra excellent as always.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
