Visited this restaurant because we had been to Benares in London also owned by Atul Kochhar and we love a curry. We visited on a Tuesday night but had pre-booked because this was a birthday present for a friend and did not want to disappoint her by not getting in. From the outside it is rather a plain little place but tardis like when you get in as it goes back a long way. We had a drink in the waiting area which is rather small. There were four of us in total and the bill came to £197.21. I thought this quite reasonable except for the cost of two bottles of beer at £11. Having said all that, the food is wonderful. 2 poppadom baskets quickly demolished more because of the chutneys than the poppadoms. Melt in the mouth scallops. Not much talking done whilst we ate out way through starters and mains, which everyone agreed was the best they had tasted. I did like the idea of the mixed indian bread basket, something for everyone and no leftovers but once again felt £7.95 for 4 small breads a bit steep. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience with very efficient and friendly staff. Would go again, but would have to be a special occasion at these prices.
