    Really great dining experience. Very authentic food. We met the head chef, Pramod Kumar Sah, who it turns out has worked in some of the best restaurants in India, before Harrods etc in London. Hoping to try new dishes as they appear on the menu. Service was great too and playlist upbeat 80's - nice touch. Will be back!

    Overpriced, small portion sizes, and lackluster service. It's not significantly better than your local Indian but is priced for it's Mayfair address. Biryani was average although not as good as Dum Biryani.

    Good food, cosy restaurant best for couples or very small groups. Bathrooms not particularly great, only 1 womens toilet. Music really destroyed the ambience when I was there, dance followed by Getting Jiggy With It on repeat for the last hour of the meal on a Monday evening.

    Every aspect of food is below average - taste, quality, presentation, portions and even freshness. We tried quite a few dishes on the menu and most lacked flavour and were definitely not authentic. Do not recommend.

    The food was good but service very slow and sometimes rude We had a waitress who had my daughters food and stopped literally in front of our table to chat to her friends while the food on her hands cooled down And I eventually called out to her and she put the food down without even an apology

    Interesting small place. Good - galouti kebab, pomfret fish musslam, basket of breads, rasmalai dessert Average - nalli nihari - could be more flavourful and not so creamy or rich , Poor - lamb biryani - whilst the the taste was okay, the serving size is a joke for £19. The portion is really tiny. Chicken tikka - absolutely tasteless, boiled chicken with some grilling. Avoid. They could make effort to keep some Indian wines on the menu. Average cost with one drink and food £45-50 per person including service.

    The food was exquisite: rich, beautifully-perfumed, exactly what one expects from luxuriant Awadhi/Lucknavi cuisine. The problem, however, was that I booked a lunch with someone and told them - based on what I had seen on the website - that there was a lunch offer (3 courses for £25). Upon arriving, I was told this was not available, so we ended up spending £30 per person for only 1 course - more money, for much less food! - and this was very embarrassing to explain to my companion. We were the only other patrons, which meant we had to shout over for the staff every so often (who naturally weren't doing the rounds on the restaurant floor for fear of hovering above us, which was nice but also meant we did have to shout them over when necessary). The men's toilet door didn't close properly and the lock was sellotaped on, with chairs in the way of the door. I bring this up only because it took away from the overall polish and appearance of the restaurant. I think management needs to address these issues because, at present, they are undermining the talents of the kitchen staff, whose food is excellent even if the dining experience and misleading website are far from it.

    Lucknow 49 food is one of the best Indian foods that I have had to this day! It is a little pricey, but so worth every penny! If I were to have to criticise, it would be about the music. I was a little disappointed that they had commercial pop music, when a vast and diverse culture is known worldwide for its Bollywood, and its eccentricity! Will definitely bring more friends and be back!

    Simply spectacular Indian food. Nuanced, creative, spiced (but not ridiculously so) and flavorful. Setting is low-key & nothing special and server was polite and attentive, but the star is the food. One of my favorite dining experiences of all time in London. It was THAT good, especially the broccoli and the potato pancakes.

    This was our second visit and again we were not let down. The food is tasty and well presented One small issue was the music. It changed in volume a few times and was not what we would call appropriate for the venue. This of course is our opinion and the volume was adjusted each time. All in all though a great meal as it was on our first visit.

    A lovely welcome and great service throughout the evening. Good veggie options, although I don‘t think the portion sizes represent value for money. I found the wine list also overpriced. Having said that, it’s Mayfair!

    Some of the best, savory Indian food in London, and that says a lot. Excellent lamb shank, the Dal was impressive, and the roasted mixer veg starter was surprisingly inventive and flavorful. Try the Bharbani/chai Negroni!

    Sadly it took 2 hours from the time we sat down to get main courses. Arrived 658 and mains went down 858pm. Staff are lovely but the engine room seemed to be struggling out back. Told it was due to new menu and having just 2 chefs. I would go back however as the staff were lovely once we pointed out our hunger. Good customer service recovery too from the manager. Food is top notch
