“Only if you are too tired to look for better restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Eat here on 1st day of our trip becos' we were all tired after long-haul flight & the restaurant looks empty enough to accommodate 10 of us. The service was prompt but the food were truly nothing to shout about. I may not be an Indian food expert, but I can tell the quality if Indian food by the plain rice it serves, & this one served bland & total scent-less pilau rice (basmati rice used in Indian cuisine are by far the most fragrant rice, u can smell it even when it's plain & it has a lovely nutty flavour). The dhall was also too runny, no texture at all. The tandoori was not bad but the portion was pitiful, but I guess food is expensive in London.

“Great Indian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

This very small restaurant near the Earl's Court tube stop is an excellent purveyor of Indian food. They specialize in Tandoori, but offer many other types of Indian delicacies. I had a chicken biryani and my wife enjoyed a lamb biryani. The service was excellent and prices reasonable. It was definitely a keeper.

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

Having read other reviews (once we'd ordered) we were expecting the worst. It was late and most other places had stopped serving. The food was pretty good and it wasn't too expensive for London

“Terrible Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Just went to new asia for a quick meal since I'm staying at the Aquarius Hotel which isn't good either, I ordered the King Prawn byriani or what it was called, one coke and one papadam bread, it was tasteless and tacky - the prawns was this small ones you can buy at the store. it was not worth the money at all and on top of that my friend got the wrong order. they also tried to sell it up and did not give up on it and it ended up with a bad mood. They brought a bottle of water which we did NOT order and the guy had an awful attitude.. they had problems with the payment and charged way to much on the service deposit. can not recommend this place unless you want to spend your money at a horrible resturant with bad service!

“Quite nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

This Indian restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but is quite nice, and I would come back next time we go to London. The food is fine, no more, no less, and the service is nice. Good value for your money.
