    Superfriendly staff and accommodating a late night booking was appreciated. Very good flavours and would recommend to try them if you need to have a late dinner.

    Gem of an Indian restaurant. The food was outstanding, and the service was first rate.

    Service was great. Food not so much, if you're looking for anything approximating authentic. Maybe that's not a thing in a tourist area of London?

    The restaurant food is excellent. The initial waiter was a bit new/ inexperienced but he found an experienced one really quickly to sort our questions. So I can't fault the service. One thing though is the VAT was added on to the prices in the menu so I thought that was a service charge which it wasn't so be carful with pricing.

    A super tiny space to dine at. The food taste nice and delicious. However, the wait time was quite long while ordering the dishes and the service was also just satisfactory. The place also feels very congested and its hard to move in and out of the table. Overall still a decent place to eat food if its not very crowded. The food is tasty and taste pretty Indian.

    This is a good Indian restaurant in the heart of London City. The food and service are excellent and I would highly recommend it to anyone. We do a lot of Indian all over the world and this one stacks up!

    Vegetarians beware! In short, this restaurant has rude servers who serve chicken by saying it is paneer. We had a horrible experience where we ordered lentils soup and paneer tikka biryani. We specifically asked if the soup is vegetarian. The server showed attitude and said he will check. He came back and told us it is vegetarian. We then ordered 2 soups and 1 paneer tikka biryani. He said it will be sweet. At this point, he knows we are vegetarians who don't eat meat. He went on saying "That's all, you don't want anything else?" When we said yes, he snatched the menus and went away without writing down our order. After a long wait, a different server than who took our order, kept a plate on our table, mumbled something without saying the dish's name correctly and went. Our religion does not allow meat and I follow it very strictly. We unfortunately ate a few bites before realizing that it is not paneer. When we asked, they say it is chicken tikka biryani. I was shocked beyond control. The hotel management went on asking what did you order? They sent the server home for the day. Waited for us to leave before we created a bigger scene. If you are vegetarian, please avoid this restaurant at all costs.

    The quantity was really less for the price. Daal tarka was very average for an indian restaurant. Paneer 65 was tasty but again such small portion. Very tight space, you have to squeeze yourself through.

    We went for a pre theatre dinner and we were served our food in good time. The food was tasty and good value for the West End. Definitely would recommend it.

    Normally, the waiter/waitress requests how many popadom would be required, we were given 6 and were charged 6 without even asking for 6, not a big deal but would have been nice to requested the amount we would of actually liked. The pakora was covered in breadcrumbs and deep fat fried, the first pakora I have ever had with breadcrumbs. The curries came cold, small portions and sadly bland. The restaurant is so crammed, you can barely get in and out of the table. Really disappointed!!!

    The best Indian food I’ve ever had. The kitchen was a little slow so a point off for that. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Very convenient location for pre-theater dining.

    THANKS Chef Beautiful food, great service from the restaurant staff. Plate sizes were perfect, being from Australia we thought the pricing was a little expensive but really enjoyed our meal.

    Not worth the money. A bit too Overpriced for the quality of food served. Ambience and cleanliness were not up to the standards as well. I’d not recommend this restaurant.

    Good food, very disappointing service, cramped space. No napkins, one glass of water(!) for two and only after repeated requests. Most importantly, dish delivered was different and more expensive than the one ordered. Patronizing waiter. Overall, not worth the effort and money

    Above average South Asian grub. Goan fish curry was tasty and spicy. Paneer tikka was delicious. Service was attentive and friendly. Not a “trendy dining experience” but a decent traditional curry house.
