    Have now been to this restaurant half a dozen times and on each occasion it never fails to deliver. From dealing with our reservation, though greeting us on arrival, taking and delivering our orders, to taking our payment and wishing us a good onward journey, the service is always very professional, polite and friendly. Haven't yet tried everything on the menu, but all the dishes that we have tried have also been delicious and excellent - from the sharing boards for starters through to the various speciality dishes for mains and even occasionally deserts when we've had room. It is particularly refreshing to try new, authentic Indian dishes and not the "run-of-the-mill" commercial Indian dishes which seem to have become the standard fayre in a number of Indian restaurants.

    We found this lovely restaurant while visiting from Cornwall and have visited this place many times& taken quite a few local friends. We like this place because of its authentic Indian taste like what we have in Chennai India. No hesitation at all to recommend this cute place!

    Images and descriptions unfortunately didn’t match reality The duck was over cooked and the halibut although very tender was smothered in thick gravy We picked this restaurant because it looked like it might be a bit different from most Indian restaurants in that the dishes weren’t smothered in gravy usually orange! Unfortunately this wasn’t the case and it was disappointingly average Maybe we just picked the wrong dishes Staff were very friendly and efficient We would return but maybe our expectations wouldn’t be so high

    We had an amazing dinner here on Friday night. It’s the first time I’ve had dinner in London where I haven’t been pushed off of my table after 90 minutes. The service and food was perfect, and the staff were so friendly. It’s evidently a family run restaurant because there was care put into every aspect of the evening. We will definitely be back, especially for the Pistachio chicken curry.

    We have been enjoying Pure Indian Cooking for several years now, and it continues to exceed our expectations with each visit! During our most recent visit, we had the pleasure of introducing some friends visiting from Australia to this gem, and they were blown away by the exceptional quality of the food. Every dish we ordered was delicious. This has the be the best Indian restaurant in London!

    An outstanding restaurant serving food full of flavour and delicate use of spice. Dishes could have been a bit hotter for my personal taste, but I asked for fresh chilli on side (perfect). Staff were welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be back.

    We had a great time at Pure Indian Cooking. The service was slow in the beginning but then it became better. The food was excellent. Thank you Laurence and Swapnil who looked after us well. One thing which we didn't find was the warmth. When you enter a restaurant, one wants to be greeted warmly.

    First visit to this restaurant & really enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent, attentive without being overbearing. They took time to describe the dishes & make recommendations after asking about our preferences.The food was delicious, subtly spiced & carefully made.It was quite busy for a Monday night but not surprising in view of the quality of the food and the fair prices. Would definitely recommend trying.
