    We went there to celebrate our 15th year’s Wedding Anniversary and It was fantastic that’s why we came back for the 2nd times. Only downside was the service of the guy waiter who was rushing us to order the dessert and trying to clear are plates as quickly as he can. Abs when he cleared everything while we wait for the dessert we didn’t have anymore drinks on our table so I asked if we can order just 1 drink like coffee to go with our dessert. But he refused saying the bar is already closed no hot drinks available. I mean really? There’s still loads of people in the restaurant and one table behind us was still being serve their food and drinks and then I called again the waiter and ask can we just order 1 soft drink like coke so that we can enjoy together with the cheesecake cake we are still waiting to be delivered. The waiter said - the bar is closed no cold or hot drinks available. I told him can you just please try abs ask coz we still waiting for our dessert and we are eating it in the restaurant - we cannot have dessert without any drinks. So he did tried but he seemed not happy serving it to us. This is not the service we expected for our 2nd visit. We are not happy about it. Such a shame for such behaviour. Luckily the food is still lovely and we enjoyed ourselves.

    Great place for indian-style tapas. Went with colleagues and had a great lunch. Lots of sharing style dishes and great service. Would recommend coming here instead of the main restaurant for variety of food and atmosphere.

    Food was mediocre..lacked that authentic taste of true North Indian food. Was also sat right near the door which was rather annoying as it was quite windy outside. Probably wouldn’t go back in a rush.

    Great food. Music a bit too much for a nice quiet dinner… the target is probably mid 20 to mid 30’s but prices fairly high for that target! Excellent delicious food, highly recommend if you’re looking for something unconventional. To the management : tables are still relatively close to each other for the staff to spray the tables with cleaning products from 1m distance while neighbouring tables full of food and people eating near by. Also your reception staff a bit untrained. We had a reservation vis opentable but were told rudely is not in the system. I showed the reservation on my phone only to be told “ oh you just made it 10minutes ago!” I said no, i made it 3 days ago. Arguing and being rude is not a good start.

    Food was exceptional and came pretty quick! Would definitely come again. For anyone going as a pair, a starter, a main (or 2) with a large side of rice (a smaller side and a bread) was more than enough. We had the Bombay Bhei as a starter and the Lamb Sukha Masala main and they were delicious!!

    Lovely ambiance with a few Christmas work dinners so louder than normal but still great atmosphere. Waiter came in prompt timing and food was brought out fairly quickly and we were checked on two times in between the meal to see if we needed anything. Table cleared up in a good time after our meal which shows attentiveness agin and finally bill was brought at a good time. We did not just have one waiter but any staff meme that we asked something was willing to help despite how busy it was that day. Overall an enjoyable experience.

    Updated menu but still served dahi puri so am happy. Service was OK, food was beautifully presented and was tasty although friend found some dishes a bit too spicy. A fantastic touch was when friend was presented with a chocolate cake birthday plate which made the dinner more special. There were at least 3 other birthdays that night so a good celebratory atmosphere.

    Buttered chicken was delicious, but all other three meals we ordered were awful. Especially the roasted aubergine dish, it was undercooked and dry to chew. They stopped serving their brunch menu, which is a big shame.

    It was my partners birthday dinner.i chose this restaurant over the internet as It had good reviews and being located in financial hub of London. It was not easy to navigate to the restaurant as a first timer. It was really good atmosphere and the staff were very professional. Bar Staff did go out of their way to deliver the order even though it was limited menu and special thanks to staff for their birthday wishes to my partner.

    My (and hubby's) favourite restaurant... this was our first visit since before COVID. Food still great, but unfortunately the service was really poor for the first time. It was very quiet however we had to wait a long time to order, no water was offered, then waited a long time to pay etc. Not the usual warm and friendly atmosphere :-( Still one of our favourites because the food is amazing, we just hope the service will go back to how it was before...
