    A good dining experience overall but we were expecting something more impressive from the food. We were also only given the a la carte menu and had to ask for the lunch menu rather than this being offered up front as an option. We would have preferred to sit in the main part of the restaurant rather than being seated in the window, which lacked atmosphere. A few points therefore that could have made our lunch a more memorable experience.

    Fantastic experience! Thoroughly enjoyed with my 86 year old aunt. This was the first time she came out after covid pandemic and to see her enjoy the food was a delight!!!

    The Quality and quantity of meat in the curry was fantastic, the best butter chicken I have had and better than my dad’s!! The staff were very attentive and helpful, also made conversation which is always a nice thing as I think it’s very rude when you are ignored!! So we’ll worth paying the service charge at Kanishka. I would definitely recommend a visit to this restaurant 10/10

    First time at this restaurant the setting and ambiance very nice apart from a draft from the main door. The food And service were both very good. The main menu is quite expensive But fortunately we had a travelzoo voucher. I would definitely dine here again.

    A wonderful experience , delicious food , social distancing without any fuss . Excellent service from Phoebi and her team . In a city where the food and service is so often disappointing, Kanishka is one of the best , the Butter Chicken is outstanding .

    Didn’t enjoy the food at all. We were first seated downstairs and I can honestly say that it was like a cafe. No Ambience at all. Save your money. Overrated

    Make sure you sit upstairs: the atmosphere downstairs is very different and was quite disappointing. Food very nice, but distracting when the ambience doesn’t match.

    Food and service were excellent . Server was very attentive , engaging and knowledgeable. Downstairs room lacked a bit of atmosphere but food more than made up for it

    Hidden gem in Mayfair. Incredible service and great food with some real Indian classic dishes. Having a vegan a la Carte menu & halal meat means they’re able to cater for all. Highly recommend it!

    This is a very impressive restaurant which was immaculately clean. The staff were exceptional, and service was excellent and not too obtrusive. The meal was probably one of the best I have ever had with soft-shell crab to begin, lamb main course cooked medium and 3 individual sorbets to finish. Only disappointment was the coffee machine was not working so no espresso. I highly recommend this restaurant as it represents value for money.

    Excellent service and food! The only downside was that with the front door open the cigarette smoke from outside came in and was unpleasant at the start of the meal. However apart from that it was an excellent experience.
