Not sure what it is about Indian restaurants in London, but they do lack that all important sense of customer service! We were at a family wedding function in the private room upstairs, but the ventilation was poor and the dance floor way too small. The food was average and the catering manager was far from accommodating (or even just... More

Walked into an empty Kanchans at around 10pm and was greeted by friendly staff. Nothing to worry about I thought as this restaurant has a decent reputation but it has been years since I last visited... It will be years for me to ever go back too... The draft beer we ordered was off and smelt of egg, obviously they... More

We asked for the alcohol to be removed from our take which the waitress was more then happy to do only for the manager to... More

We waited for almost half an hour for our drinks order to be taken. Waiter was rude and not really interested. Food was below average. I've been a few times before and the standards have really dropped. Not surprising that you can get a table on a Saturday evening without booking. Caraway is so much better.

Please don't bother with this KANCHAN. My family & I strong agreed it was the worst meal we have ever had. Maybe we should have taken the hint when we arrived & saw only 4 people dining. The chicken our Waiter started us with was really horrible smiley. After that it was downhill. The LAMB ROGANJOSH, KING PRAWN, PANEER MAKHNI,... More

After trying to decide which restaurant to eat in which would be child friendly and not to loud we decided to give Kanchans another try. It's been approx 10 years since we dined there and in all honesty there aren't that many good authentic Indian restaurants in East London IMO. Got a booking for 8 pm and were seated quickly... More
