Since opening its doors in 1983 , Memories of India is certainly a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike.

Close to Kensington Palace, Hyde Park, the Royal Albert Hall and the museums, Memories of India attracts many TV personalities, royalty and has been praised by food critics and writers, including Fay Masschler and the late Egon Ronay.

The chef's prepare an indulgent mix of exotic flavours and spices, including a number of staple dishes like the chicken tikka masala, as well as original dishes like Officers' chops in a honey soy sauce, or lemon sole dipped in a blend of spices, mango extract, garlic and red chilli. There are specialities from the tandoori oven, vegetarian and gluten free choices and Gold Taste award winning desserts. With its delightful menu, friendly and welcoming atmosphere, Memories of India is an oasis.

    Thank you for a lovely evening. I am regular in Indian, Pakistani, Nepalese restaurants. The quality of the dishes was good however the portions seem to be slightly smaller than other restaurants, especially when you compare with Tooting, Wembley and Southall. The ambiance was excellent and the staff were very friendly.

    We were looking for good Indian food near our hotel on Glouster Road - Memories of India did not disappoint. The food was so flavorful without being spicy hot! We ordered lamb samosas, chicken tikka masala, lamb korma, biryani, and naan. For the two of us it was perfect! The restaurant was crowded which is always a good sign when there are other choices. I would definitely return - it was authentic and so good! Happy we were able to get a table.

    Unbelievable food and excellent service. The dishes were all aromatic, quite light and not too spicy. Not usual for Indian food. The staff were in a very mood. Wine list is a bit dated. may require some re-shuffling. But Indian food begs for beer

    Memories of India is a very good Indian restaurant. It is not on a par with Gymkhana, Jamavar or the other Michelin star Indian eateries but it is very good, classic British Indian curry house food. The curries are tasty, varied and taste how the traditional curry house dishes should. Really solid curry house with good food and excellent service. Well worth a visit.

    Quaint little restaurant, but very good food. I was vegetarian on the night so could not taste the chicken & lamb dishes. I am sure they would have been pretty tasty. However, generally the food was quite tasty and the portions were solid. Will return.

    We visited Memories of India for a late night meal after a concert at the nearby Royal Albert Hall. We found it to be a small cosy restaurant with some interesting dishes not found on the average Indian restaurant menu. Tasty food and reasonable value. Service was generally friendly. Our only gripe was the long time it took to attract the attention of a waiter when we wished to place our order, given that it wasn't so busy at the time. Overall, however, I would certainly recommend Memories of India if looking for a nice Indian restaurant in that locality.

    This was our second time in a week and were quite disappointed. We have just moved into the neighborhood and were hoping to make coming here a regular thing. But we were so disappointed. First we realized that ‘regulars’ seem to get a better treatment. The waiter brought the thin Indian crispy cracker served as an appetizer to an Indian meal with sauces, without being asked. Second we, as we probably look like tourists, were overcharged. And so was a couple next to our table. We had: Tandoori chicken 9.95 Tikka Marsala 10.50 Darks Daal 5.95 Rice 3.50 Plain Naan bread 2.75 £32.65 One small beer One bottle of water Paid £44.65 So basically they made us pay £12 for a small beer and water?!? We will look for another Indian restaurant, which possibly threats all its costumers that same. Not much to ask, I’d say.

    We chose to dine at this restaurant because we thought it was related to one that we loved in Amsterdam, and indeed it is a branch of the same. The ambience is tasteful, with a fine setting and a tempting menu. We chose the tandoori chicken (it came with a delicious fresh salad), separate dishes of okra and of mixed vegetable curry, and an order of paratha, or something just like it. While we waited, we were served an appetizer of papadum with a tasty set of sauces (a chutney and a mint sauce), a spicy pepper, and fresh, finely chopped vegetables (cucumber, onion, cilantro/coriander). A nice sparkling wine and draft Indian beer were our drinks, but a wide range of choices, including of wines, is available. The whole meal was delicious--as good as any Indian food we've ever had. We wish we were frequent travellers to London, but at least we're going to Amsterdam in the fall and will be able to dine at the sister restaurant.

    Consistently decent dishes, good value, cheerful staff and enough of them. Good solid curry house - not trying to be too clever, good quality in all the dishes we tried (on more than one visit). A new regular haunt.
