    Great food as ever. The lighting was a little low for me and the waitress had to use her torch for us to see the menu (don't let old people in) Staff really nice. For a West End restaurant pricing is good value for money.

    Had to wait 10 minutes to be seated whilst another table of two arrived after us and were seated immediately. Waiter taking our order was unhelpful and rude, reluctant to give any useful information that would allow us to order a suitable amount of food. Rude when asked about wine glass size. Tandoor chicken came out undercooked, pink and raw on inside with blood too. They did replace with cooked one very quickly but forgot to bring out lemon garnishing on side. Had to ask several times for the dessert menu, when we finally got it we were told they needed our table back in 5-10 minutes despite the food taking half an hour to arrive and all of the above issues.

    Fantastic food - we ordered a mix of dishes to share between 3 & every dish was just so fresh & flavoursome. The chicken was succulent & the paneer was like none we’ve ever had before. The staff were very attentive, friendly and just gave great customer service. Will definitely return on our next trip to London.

    Great tasting food. Great service. As a coeliac it’s great to know that although most of the menu of gluten free anyway the staff understand any cross contamination issues and highlight these and are also able to make any of the non gluten free dishes adapted to be safe.

    I was really impressed with the Tandoor Chop House. The food was beautifully flavoured - especially the chops and there was a good range of starters. I would describe the menu as a fusion of Asian and British food. Really good portion sizes at a very competitive price- I think it was the first time in London that I couldn’t finish it all and had to have a doggy bag! Service was a little slow at first but there was a large group of 10 people next to us which took a little while deal with - after that, no problem. Drinks prices were fair for central London too. The atmosphere was ‘buzzy’ but never intrusive. I would highly recommend as a perfect pre-show restaurant and will certainly go again. Many thanks for a lovely meal.

    Food is well prepared and well seasoned. All selections are a bit spicy hot, and the roasted pineapple dessert was a nice finish. Duck breat and lamb chops were very good.

    Good atmosphere. The only issue we had was that our waitress didn’t really know anything about the dishes so any questions we had went unanswered. It’s also very expensive for what it is but I put this down to location. The food itself however was very good, all well made and tasted great!

    This is the 2nd time I've been here and the food was still excellent. Great food and drink. It's a shame they have made the chili cheese naan much smaller- they should revert back to the old size.

    The waiter forgot one of our mains then came to the table with a drinks order that we did not place. The lamb chops were very fatty and had very little lamb. I came previously for the honey chilli chicken and was disappointed when this was not on the menu. Instead we ordered the pepper chicken which was bland and tasted like something we could have cooked at home. Disappointing.

    Pretty smokey in the restaurant but great informal atmosphere, chilled out. Food was average.. Very small limited menu which is fine if the food is amazing but it was average at best and really expensive. Toilets dirty and no loo roll. There are some places you go back to again and again.. This isn't that place unfortunately.

    We visited on Saturday at 4pm and were really looking forwards to the meal. However, the both our chicken dishes were inedible. The chicken had a very strong petrol/lighter fluid taste to it. It was very busy with staff looking stretched and so we just left without complaining. But the drinks and chaat were very nice.

    I think the location and venue are great… but I just didn’t enjoy my meal. It tastes absolutely fine but it wasn’t balanced. It was essentially meat with a dry rub, and carbs (naan or potatoes). There is only one salad side on the menu. It also felt really expensive because they encourage one main per person but the main is not a balanced meal. Honestly it was more suited for sharing in my opinion. So check the menu before you book. On a plus, it’s not super noisy, the seating is cosy and intimate.
