Being awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, Open Table Dinners Choice Award as well as the Certificate of Excellence by AAA our culinary philosophy is deceptively simple. We celebrate the very best of Indian food.

    We had a very nice dinner at Light of India. We thought the service was attentive and not intrusive. We really enjoyed the mixed meat appetizer. I loved the veggie biryani, but my companions are not huge veggie lovers. We enjoyed the tikka masala and I thought the naan was outstanding. Lovely atmosphere.

    Delicious cocktails. We had vegetarian platter and avocado mango salad to start- both excellent. Pistachio Korma was amazing, and Rajasthani Lamb spicy and delicious. Service was professional and friendly, and fast. Thoroughly recommend.

    We were really looking forward to going here. We have a curry every Friday and treated ourselves to a meal here as a birthday celebration before the Albert Hall. Having read the reviews we were expecting a lot but were hugely disappointed. The food was overall just really bland and poorly executed. The samosas were definitely frozen and re-heated - just a greasy hard case with mush inside. We both had a thali - one chicken tikka and one vegan. The chicken tikka was just chicken with some sauce on top - not marinated at all. The vegan was just mushy potato with spinach, a tasteless dahl, and the onion mix from the poppadom sauce tray. And as others have said - £2.50 for a poppadom. Fully appreciate that the location is going to come with a cost but it's not even decent food. The service was nice enough. I'm not sure if they tone the spice down for tourists or whether they just get their friends to write reviews (many have only got one review to their account) but this is definitely not fine dining or authentic Indian food. There are loads of nice restaurants in the area - we won't be going back to this one.

    It's a little more pricey than other places, but so worth it, as the food is fantastic. Best currys we have had . There was no rush to get you out... Definitely recommend

    The food was rather bland after the amuse bouche. I had an allergy to one course and they substituted a lamb sausage with no taste, no sauce. We had expected the tasting menu to be explosions of flavor but were very disappointed. The staff is lovely and attentive. The room is very bright so not relaxing.

    The atmosphere is beautiful. The service was good. The food was great but for the amount of food ordered it was a lot of money. I would go to Light of India again.

    On vacation from the states and wanted something reasonably priced with good ratings. This hit the mark. Our waiter was very polite and patient with us(since we weren’t familiar with a lot of the menu items). The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very nice. Everyone in our party enjoyed themselves. Our two toddlers ate plenty as well.

    Went for lunch on a Saturday. The food tasted so fresh and full of flavour. We had the pre theater 2 course meal deal and this is 100% worth it's value. The waiter was very professional and polite. We can't wait to return to try other dishes

    We had gone past this place and it looked inviting - so we booked a table. The decor has gone for the "traditional" curry house, with flock wallpaper and heavy velvety curtains and blinds. You feel at home just looking through the windows, but the experience starts with the excellent service on walking in, which carries on throughout the meal. Food is just wonderful - you will see old favourites on the menu, as well as some that I had not seen before. I had Keralan King fish, never heard of it, just wonderful (the king fish comes in steaks like salmon, but is a sort of cross between mackerel and swordfish in texture and flavour). Definitely would recommend, and can't wait to go back.
