Approached through an unprepossessing door on the Strand, up a fairly grotty staircase, to the second floor and you will find this restaurant. We ate there on a Saturday evening and we felt, in the slightly dim light with old fashioned and simple furniture, to be back in India.
The food is basic but good. If you want wine bring a bottle (they do not charge corkage); they serve beer and, of course, lassis. The price are reasonable. Service was mixed: one excellent attentive waiter, one who seemed bored and uninterested. The clientele seemed to include quite a few who were repeat diners.
It is historically quite interesting, having opened in 1946 and lays claim to being one of the oldest Indian restaurants in the UK. Pandit Nehru ate here too! The floor below is The India Club's bar. It is no longer a club.
