This might even be better than the curry I had on Brick Lane earlier this year. Fabulous, tasty, full of charm and spice. Absolutely gorgeous food, gorgeous staff and wonderful atmosphere. Thank you Motiraj, I will return soon.

We ate here recently and, I can honestly say, it ranks as one of the best Indian meals I have had outside of India itself. The restaurant is clean, the staff attentive, and its very handy for a pre show meal if you are visiting the nearby theatre (as we were) . Will definitely go back.

Busy restaurant, popular with the locals. Service was good as was the value but the food was all a bit ordinary. Would like to see more varied regional dishes.

Went to the Motiraj again last night. Was very busy when we got there at 8. Despite the amount of people (big groups etc) we were seated and served our meals very quickly. I like the fact they take your food orders while you're sitting in the bar area so its getting prepped for when you are being seated. Only thing this time was that the lamb wasn't as tender as I like it, though it was still nice. Service very good again, will keep on coming back. On
