Food was fabulous and staff so helpful. They even noticed that one of us was struggling with the spicyness so they brought out a less spicy version of the dish without asking us!
Very impressed with the food at this restaurant. Great poppadums and everything we ordered was very good. Keema naan was outstanding.
Only gripe the wine was not chilled properly but they did put it in ice for us.
A gem of a restaurant…a perfect end to a perfect day.
Great food, service & ambience
We shall certainly return
I would like to say thank you to the Indian Gourmet for an excellent evening. The staff made us feel very welcome, the food was delicious and service was prompt an efficient. Highly recommended.
The food is great but the experience is poor. We arrived to an empty restaurant 10 minutes before our booking (19:00), we had no starter and went straight for a main course. When it came to dessert, they said we couldn't order one as they needed our table. As we had arrived 10 minutes early, they wanted to get rid of us within 1 hour and 20 mins. They could not have booked anyone on to our table before 20:30 even if they only offered an hour and a half and they wanted us gone by 20:10.
It felt really awkward. I have dined there a couple of times but I won't be back.
This is a fast food restaurant not a dining experince.
Indian gourmet was an excellent experience! The food was Orgasmic fantastic!!! was my husbands 60th and the staff made it special.
Especially sonny the waitress. She was so welcoming a very beautiful person inside and out.
She educated us on the different types of food they did.
One of the best Indian meals we have ever had. We love our Indian food as well.
Very authentic food.
We can’t wait to go back to visit
The food was very good and tasty, so we really enjoyed the evening.
Better than the average curry. Very tasty.
Booked this last minute and was slightly apprehensive.
Surprisingly super tasty food and good service would recommend!
Had dinner with family and a friend. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I booked a week earlier on Open Table. Food was great
Old favourites as well as less common dishes, all delicious and generous portions. Good wines at reasonable prices and most attentive service
their customer service is disgusting. they decided without any warning and after just an hour and a half into our meal to rudely kick is off our table. they also took our drinks away to rush us out. was such a horrible and abrupt end to a nice dinner. literally never experience such awkward customer service.
would never come back or recommend this place. they deserve to be shut down for being so rude to their customers.
You are a serious liar. At the time of this event you had already paid your bill. So, You are telling hour and half into your meal and that is what the time OpenTable allocates for table of 2 people. It was a extremely busy Diwali night and we politely requested table as the booking customer were waiting at the Bar. We didn't remove your drink. You were so cheap that for requesting table back you asked service charge back and we did refunded you without any hesitation. You are not welcome again.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Indian Gourmet. Will book again and recommend.
Food was fantastic. We do love an Indian and this was up there. Unassuming restaurant with great service and excellent grub. One of our group was vegan and very happy to see she was catered for. Everything arrived promptly and was piping hot and very tasty. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Prices were very good and clearly laid out on the menu. All in all a very good experience
The food was delicious and was very fairly priced! The servers were also very kind and attentive and the atmosphere was very cozy. My only small notice is that the water there is not free- however, the food was so tasty that it is just a minor complaint.
Service was amazing and food delicious! Would recommend
Hello Silvia, Thank you for the kind words on our food and service, we are glad you loved everything. Hope to see you soon again.
Small neighbourhood restaurant with well chosen menu, excellent service and quiet enough to have a conversation
Hello Pamela, Thank you for the kind words and we must add that we really appreciate your repeated custom. We hope you will continue to support our small business. Look forward to seeing you soon again.
Absolutely fantastic food with incredibly friendly staff on an unexpectedly busy Wednesday evening. Would throughly recommend to anyone interested in a more thoughtful, inspiring take on Indian cuisine
Hello Nick, Thank you for the amazing review regarding food and service. We are a small establishment and tend to fill up quite quickly almost all days of the week. We recommend booking in advance as you did to avoid any disappointment. See you soon again.
Wonderful staff and wonderful tasting food. Had no cider in for my coeliac husband, however we were accommodated by being able to quickly grab some of our own from the shop next door. Nice view of the top of the shard also 👌 gluten free recommendations and knowledge was very good 👍
Hello Karen, We are super pleased to read your review about out food and service, thank you ! Unfortunately, we do not have gluten free drinks (yet!) in our future, but we are happy that you could bring your own (we do not support BYOB). Please let us know the next time you book a table with us, we will try to get some specially for you. Hope to see you soon again!
Staff were very accommodating, food was tasty, all of us chose different dishes, starters and mains and tried them all - all very flavoursome. Great evening out so a thumbs up.
Hello Cath, We are delighted that you were happy with the food and service. We recommend exactly what you did, ordering different dishes and sharing them, best way to get best out of your meal! We hope to see you soon again to try out other dishes from our menu. Thank you .
We had 4 different meals and found each to have their own unique delicious flavour. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Looking forward to trying some of the house specialities next time.
Hello Michael, We appreciate your mention of each of our dish having their own unique flavour. Our chefs prepare each dish in our menu individually , thank you for recognising the effort . We look forward to serving you the house specialities next time :)
Staff weren't very friendly. Kept being pressured to hurry up even when over an hour left of our booking. Forced us to buy a main per person against our will despite ordering starters / drinks alongside mains and breads. Food was excellent quality. Decent ambience too.
Hello Raj, We haven't got a reservation under your name on the 22.10, however we have a hint to who you might be. Let us clarify your complaints. 3 staff members came to you over the period of 20 min to take your order, you were not ready. We give enough time to every single table as stated in opentable terms. So, saying you were rushed and we were unfriendly is fairly misleading. The word limit to reply here is not much so please call/email us if you would like further explanation.
Hands down the best Indian restaurant I’ve been to in a long time, service was excellent and staff warm and friendly & the food was incredible!
Hello Sasha, Thank you for the lovely review. You have given us a huge compliment , we try our hardest each day to maintain this quality. Our staffs will be thrilled to read your warm and encouraging feedback :) Look forward to seeing you soon again.
The best Indian food in London by a mile. Lovely service. Each dish has its own completely unique flavour profile - these dishes are made to taste as they are traditionally supposed to taste. No bulk base being added to each curry so that they all somehow taste the same. We ordered starters and two curry's along with a biriyani full of lamb throughout. Rolled home after that but it was worth it. Without question the only Indian we'll be eating and will be recommending it to everyone.
Hello AMJM, We absolutely loved reading your review about our food and service, very pleasant and warm ! Thanks a ton. And We love it even more that you rolled back home :) we are aware that you have dined in couple of times more after leaving this review, we appreciate your support to our small establishment. Look forward to seeing you soon again !
I am a coeliac and the food here was safely gluten free for me. The food was great. The service was a bit solemn and we suddenly realised that the restaurant closed mid afternoon and we were rather awkwardly the last table left after a late lunch. But good food and everything else fine.
Hello Mary, We are delighted that we could cater to your needs and that you loved the food, thank you. We have to close the restaurant sometimes during the day for an hour or so, just for maintenance and cleaning as well as to give our staffs much needed break. Please be assured that you could have carried on enjoying your lunch without feeling awkward, we apologise if we contributed to you feeling like that ! Hope to see you soon again.
The Quality of Food was amazing. The Chef did an amazing job. I think the quantity was not what we expected coming from India.
Hello Ashwini, Thank you for the compliments on the food, we appreciate it. Regarding the portions, we believe our portion sizes are not any less for the price charged as compared to many other restaurants in Central London. Hope to see you soon again.
Really great service and lovely food great find would recommend
Hello Deb, Thank you for the lovely review. We are thrilled that you love the food and service. Look forward to seeing you soon again.
Very tasty food, nice staff and great vibe. Would recommend
Hello, thank you for the excellent review, we are delighted that the food and service was to your liking. Hope to see you soon again !
Decent food, good service but very noisy
Hello Nicholas, thank you for the finding the time to review us. We are glad you liked the food and service. We are a small establishment and tend to get extremely busy towards the end of the weekend, unfortunately we cannot control the noise . We recommend the beginning of the week for a more relaxing meal. Hope to see you soon again.
Fantastic food, had a great meal, will definitely be back again!
Hello, Thank you for finding the time to leave us a star rating, we appreciate it. See you soon again.
Ambience was sad, Food was tasteless and too less quantity for the money charged. Paneer was hard, Dal had no salt. We only ordered veg and it was not good, not sure about Non veg food.
Hello Rajat, Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your food, if you had raised the issue , we would have happily changed it for you. Regarding your thoughts on food portion being small, on a central London location, we regret to enlighten you that this is a very fair price. Had you ordered what you were initially planning to order , a starter and a side dish to share between two of you, we wonder that you might have thought! There are many other fast food chains which will satisfy your requirements.
Excellent food and kind staff.
Hello, Thank you for the lovely review. We are super pleased you found the food excellent. And Its nice knowing that you thought the staff were kind, to us its a very different compliment to what we usually get , really appreciate it ! Hope to see you soon again.
The food was really tasty. We chose some dishes to share which worked well as the portions are on the smaller side - although very adequate.
Service was good, very attentive and fun waiter.
Hello Amds, it is wonderful to hear that the food was to your liking and sharing worked perfectly between you all albeit the smaller portions. Thank you for commenting on the service too, we are trying to locate the fun waiter :) , though we have an idea of who he could be :). Hope to see you soon again!
Amazing well presented food which was delicious. Staff were very attentive and my daughter even got a free ice cream at the end which was a nice touch.
Hello Andrew, thank you for the wonderful review. We are thrilled to know that the food and service was amazing and appreciate your recognition of our small gesture of an ice cream for your daughter, hope she enjoyed it. Hope to see you soon again.
Everyone really enjoyed their meals and the staff were very attentive
Hello Jennifer, We are delighted to read that your group of 6 loved their meals and you found the staff attentive. We appreciate your feedback, thank you. Look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Fantastic service, amazing tasty food. We had lamb roganjosh and chicken tikka, with lemon rice which was lovely. Perfect Nan bread and meat samosas to start. AND a bonus King Cobra our favourite. We will be back x
Hello Linda, We are truly pleased to read your wonderful review, thank you. It is an honour to hear that food and service was top notch. And we must agree the king cobra (perfectly chilled and smooth) goes down so well with our cuisine. We look forward to seeing you soon again. P.s. Hope you enjoyed your post dinner show :)
Very good food. Service a little slow - waited ages for starters but after that no problem. Didn't like the plastic sheeting between tables but...those are the times we live in. Overall very good.
Hello Maurice, We are delighted that you found the food very good . Our food is cooked fresh to order , that might have been the reason for the delay in your starters. However, we would like to sincerely apologise as its not an excuse for the delay in service and we expect much better from ourselves. The plastic curtains in between the tables is sadly , as you mentioned, the times we live in. Here's to hoping that we get rid of them soon and dine as we used to, cheers!
Hello Julie, we are delighted to know that the food was fantastic on your recent visit to the restaurant. We work really hard to meet the expectations of our guests and we are glad to have achieved this. Look forward to seeing you soon again.
