Second time there last night, went with my partner on a special deal for the 7 course tasting menu (one pays, one gets it free).
Location/space - large restaurant downstairs, private dining room upstairs, nice reception area/coatheck area. Nicely decorated, dining areas broken up into different zones - all very chic and nice.
Food - really good. fresh ingredients (we had scallops to start, the lamb and chicken were cooked well), all very well spiced. Some dishes quite hot/spicy, but nothing unmanageable. Dishes come in their individual dishes, everything is well separated, and it's far removed from the typical indian where you often get a homogenous pile of food that looks as if it's been eaten before. If you like Indian you'll love this, and it's as far removed from e.g. Brick Lane as you could get.
Service - extremely attentive. Wine and water refilled properly throughout. Waiter explained what the dishes were, m'aitre d asked how things were. There's a clear focus on service, but it's unobtrusive.
Wine - very good list, average price for a good white or red will be £30 upwards, and there are some very expensive options.on that list. Maybe 120 or so wines in all? A big list.
Atmosphere - nice, relaxing, spacious, tables nicely separated.
Price - it's not cheap. Even with one of the two 7 course tasting menus free,my £45 coursed and a bottle of wine meant it was just shy of £100 with tip. But we thought it was well worth it.
Comparisons - couldn't believe a post here thta said it was not as good as Masala zone. The latter is OK but delivers mass-produced food (delivered to each outlet) whereas this place has chefs who use good ingredients and clearly know what they're doing.
Dont' think "Indian - ah, tacky carpets, obsequious waiters, big cardboard menu, good, cheap food" - this is an upmarket place, serving upmarket food, presented well with good service - and a price tag to match.
Tip: not really doable by tube or bus, as it's way down the end of Kings Road so taxi from Fulham Broadway or Sloane Square or Earls Court would be best.
