Food was not spicy enough! Not an authentic Indian menu, but delicious nonetheless. Very nice ambiance.

Mixed grill isn't an authentic sizzler warm and chicken was rubbery overcooked. Mains were so so lamb curry was dry have haduch better. Overall disappointed

I would definitely recommend Dhaba@49. The food is delicious the service excellent and the staff really helpful. Because of a mix up our taxi did not arrive, but the manager swiftly arranged a car for us, so 5 stars all round.

Fabulous food with a cool modern vibe. However, the staff seemed a little inexperienced, mixing up the tables and having to be asked twice for the same thing. Also found it a little difficult to understand our waitet’s accent. He did go out of his way to make up for his shortcomings and was very polite. I think staff training will give this restaurant the edge it needs to really stand out!!!

Too much noise from the bar area where they made mango lassi. Not possible to talk in the restaurant when they used this machine. Recommend to move the machine to different place.

Food is good but nothing special. Just regular indian food.

We were regular customers of the previous restaurant and were keen try Dhaba@49, especially when we heard some positive feedback from someone that had been there.

Drinks selection was good, especially the cocktails menu. The food that we ordered was delicious - the standouts were the naan bread and the butter chicken which was pleasantly slightly spicy. We even made room for dessert. One suggestion for improvement is to increase the number of main dishes slightly.

Service is attentive - just the right balance for us.

Smart but informal restaurant - great for couples, small or larger groups of friends/family. We've now dined here twice and will definitely be returning.

Starters were way better than mains.

The butter chicken tasted so sweet it should have been on the dessert menu

Also need to watch these guys on the final bill

Possibly the best Indian food we’ve ever had...and we’ve had a lot!
Delightful surroundings, friendly and very efficient service and glorious food for both the vegetarians and non vegetarians in our party of six.
Wonderful!

My favourite haunt in the neighbourhood where I live, slightly surprised at the intensity of chillies in two of our selection (the server should have asked us) my european guests including myself couldn't bear the heat in our 'sabzi' and 'daal tarka'. I told the server Derek about it, they should have offered us alternative. But I love this place and would return.

Incredible indian gem in London! We visited on a Sunday night and were celebrating a birthday: everything was perfect, from food to service. This restaurant serves tasty indian options, big portions and great variety of choices! Members of staff were super accommodating and smiling: I loved that! :). Further, we were brought a special dessert to conclude our dinner, which was offered by the restaurant! Amazing experience and I am 100% coming back. Please, visit this place!
