Visited on a Friday Night and ordered the Vegetarian Set Menu for two. Small starters arrived quickly, but with no plates or cutlery, we were offered them but they never appeared. Almost an hour later, and after sending two people to look for it, our main arrived. It was nice, although not outstanding. We waited again a long time for... More

Although the service was good. The food was disappointing. Seemed as though the curries were pre cooked sauces with last minute additions of the meat. Definitely not authentic cooking.

Typical Indian street food restaurant. Not a fancy restaurant but the food more than makes up for it. Worth a visit

Second visit to this restaurant this year. Why??? It's amazing. Never had an Indian meal like it. Non of the greasy sauces most Indians serve up. Great food, cooked perfectly, can't wait to go back again 👍🏻

One of the best indian cuisine I have tasted outside india. To start with - the Cocktail was well done and starter and main dishes were well cooked and the food retained the original flavor. I would say - the starters are exorbitantly priced. Definitely worth a visit if you are around in soho.

Visited with friends and quite enjoyed the food. I thought portions and price was decent. I absolutely loved the iced tea! I tried the jasmine kiwi iced tea and it was amazing. Highlight of my meal. Would love to come back to try the other iced teas!

There was a real lack of atmosphere here today , a big room with only a few customers , surprising when Soho was buzzy but I really feel they need to do more here to now excite. Its better to save up and go to big sister Tamarind which has a great set lunch menu and much more modern food.... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
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, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
