Description: Khan’s has just entered it’s Thirty Eighth year in business, and is still one of Europe’s largest and most popular Indian restaurants. Khan’s was founded in 1977 by Mr. M Y Khan and is still to this day run by the same family in London. Keeping all the traditional, quality and standard of this amazing founder. To enter the new Millennium the Khan’s family decided to abolish the sale of alcohol, in accordance with healthy eating & healthy drinking, the adopted philosophy of wholesomeness, well-being and recreating the traditional ambiance – ‘The days of the Raj’. As a result, this has created a more family orientated restaurant for every one to enjoy. The selection of Organic & Halal drinks is vast which includes a selection of Khan’s fruit cocktails all created in-house. Renowned for it’s high standard and quality of food as all ingredients are bought fresh daily, 100% Halal. The menu is extensive with well over 70 main courses to choose from, all using authentic traditional recipes. A few house specialties include Fish Curry, Methi Gosht, Chicken Tikka, Butter Chicken, Bombay Aloo and Mutter Paneer. The menu caters for everyone from the Health-conscious to the Vegetarians. Khan’s has also created it’s own children’s menu, whereby, the dishes served are mild, healthy with plenty of flavour. The atmosphere at Khan’s is breath taking; the pace is fast and the service faultless, a unique atmosphere that must be experienced.

“Another disappoitment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

My last visit to London was too many years ago than I care to remember. It was an error to re-visit old haunts. Khans was once laid back, cool, trendy and superb cuisine. All that has changed now.

“Really good indian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Khans is s bit of an institution and has existed for more than 30 years in the same location. Quite a feat in a city that has a restaurant on every corner and where competition is fierce. I have been to Khans twice - in the early 2000s and last week - and the restaurant hasn't really changed. The food is good and prices more than reasonable.

“Raw chicken & tasteless food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

I went here for a birthday party and was shocked how bad the food was purely because people have over hyped this place so much. I was surprised my chicken was raw because everything my mates ordered seemed like 10 weeks old. Shocking very disappointed.

“fair indian biryani”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

I was expecting fantastic food as this place was highly recommended. We ordered takeaways and the service was reasonably fast. There was a place next o the entrance where one can sit while waiting for orders or seating.
The biryani itself was fair. it was the usual indian spice and taste but nothing to shout. We were given the rice with chicken and a bowl of lassi -no salad or dalca. Chicken was tender enough.
If you are the area and had a sudden urge for biryani but no transport, perhaps this is the place to head for.As for me, I would take the bus to Camden.
