Indian Gourmet is located in the London Bridge, just a stones throw away from the busy hustle and bustle of the historic Borough Market. It offers freshly cooked authentic home-style appetising, wholesome and real Indian food from different parts of India and Indian Sub-continent. The Sub-continent stretches from The Himalayas to the Indian Ocean, from the Arabian Sea to the Bay of Bengal. In addition, the menu consists of popular Indian street food and regional delicacies.

At Indian Gourmet, you can make a great start of the gastronomic tour of India without having to leave the table.

The interior is influenced by Indian rural homes - rustic look with muddy and woody effect, still minimalist and modern.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Indian Gourmet
Responded on October 23, 2021

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.

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 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.
