    Food was a bit too sweet (especially the butter chicken) for my taste. Starters had better flavours.0

    Really enjoyable food and cheerful service. Restaurant was fairly quiet the night we went so that helped us enjoy our meal with friends as the noise level was low. Two courses and one drink each plus one pudding and one coffee came to £38 a head with service.

    Have finally found a great Indian restaurant near us! Holy Cow serves excellent food in very comfortable and spacious surroundings. The staff were delightful and the drinks excellent. We look forward to going again soon. I will probably elect to sit inside rather than in the small paved outside area as the noise from the trains was a bit distracting at times, but that isn't the restaurant's fault! The upstairs area looked very pleasant so we will try to book at table there and try some of the other dishes on the interesting menu. Thank you, Holy Cow team, for a delightful evening.

    Probably one of the best eat in curries in SW London in a an area with some strong competition.Nice room ,the staff are lovely & there are some very good drinks options,I thought their own brand IPA was excellent & the Indian Mule cocktail was great on a hot night. The food is reliably good & often excellent,our meal was a bit of both. Highly reccommended.

    The restaurant is great. I've eaten there four or five times and imho the food is outstanding every time. Bizarrely it's right next door to my other favourite Indian Ma Goa but the food is sufficiently different in each that I'm happy to flip between them. Staff are always friendly and attentive, the restaurant has a very pleasant decor and on a hot evening you can eat outside on the terrace.
