My wife and I visited this restaurant based on the many excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Just North of Tottenham Court Road (about 7 mins walk north from the tube station) it's in a great location but off the busy main road.
The staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. I saw another review on here that said they didn't ask if people had enjoyed their meal but they did with us. They also asked if we needed any help with the menu and had we any questions about the food. One of the staff also came for a really nice chat at the end and bought out some of the fresh herbs and spices they use (I've never seen star anise before apart from on Masterchef so was really interesting!).
The food itself was delicious and delicately spiced. There is not a huge menu which is usually a good sign everything is prepared fresh to order. I had a medium lamb curry which was one of the best I have ever tried, beating anything I've eaten in Southall and Brick Lane. My wife had the chana (chick pea) masala which was really delicious and spicy without blowing your head off. The most pleasing aspect about the food was we were able to clean our plates as there was no residual oil in the bottom of the dishes (we recently ate in Southall and my wife had to leave the last of her dish due to a huge puddle of oil in the bottom, not nice). We left feeling full but without that uncomfortable feeling you usually get from the more greasy Indian cooking.
A meal for two with poppodoms, chutneys, a main each and another main to share, rice, breads, coffees and 4 alcoholic drinks came to just over £50 - excellent value in London. If you are a 'commercial curry' fan as my Asian friends call it (tikka masala, vinadloo etc) this isn't the place for you. If you want to try a genuine authentic curry that will set you taste buds tingling it's a must. We are already a planning our next visit!
