I hadn't had Indian for quite some time so thought I'd go for some with a friend after work. We were on the Strand and saw that this restaurant was packed with people and thought to go in. It was a decision we were glad we made! At the entrance we were greeted by a very lovely gentleman who guided us to our table. From that point we were treated like royalty, it was that good. No issues with the service. Food? That was as good. I had Chicken Biryani - one of the finest I've experienced. My friend had the tandoori lamb chop with rice and was very complimentary of it. Price was ok, didn't expect to be getting it cheap in Central London. Overall, a delightful experience such that I feel obliged to write this review and let this place be known to my fellow Londoners.

The food must all come from one sauce. Madras, Dhansak, Vindaloo, Phal, Rogan, no matter what you choose, it looks exactly the same oily red colour and varies only in heat. Went with five friends and was shown to a table san tablecloths. The waiters were helpful and polite but the food was not good. All 6 of us were in terrible trouble on the toilet the following morning.. ALL 6 and we all ate "different" dishes.
Maybe it was an off day, maybe not, but I wont be going back and I wouldn't recommend it. The preverbal bad Indian food experience.

We recently visited this restaurant very close to Covent Garden and converse to some of the previous reviews on this website, we all had a very enjoyable experience. Although the external façade and internal décor is slightly dated, this should not put you off as the food is very tasty.
All of us enjoyed starters and main courses and the meat used in the dishes was of a high quality.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, in particular Mr Miah who offered us a complimentary drink after the meal

We would definitely return on our next trip to London.

we were lucky to get a table for us on Saturday night at around 8pm when the restaurant was full. The food was good at a fair cost, clean, good and very friendly services. Will definitely eat here again.

I came here for their lunch special menu (2 courses for £8.95). The restaurant was dead at lunchtime on a Monday, so there wasn't much atmosphere - but that was perfect for me as I just wanted to read my book.

The food was truly delicious - best chicken Korma I've had in a long time. I will definitely be going back, and maybe with friends in the evening when I'm sure it is a busy time. Definitely recommend the food here,
