Interesting range of advertised cocktails and also adjustments possible as well as bespoke offerings. Our server was helpful and knowledgable. There was no feed so ignore that rating! We went at 7pm on a Thursday and it was empty. A few more people arrived but for a local cocktail bar, it deserves more love. I hope it gets some!

Marble Arch
About the restaurant
Regionally inclined Punjabi cuisine is the main draw at this incongruously located Indian (one of eight branches worldwide), pitched beneath a vast block of flats. Having undergone a major refurbishment, the restaurant has emerged with a polished bar area decked out in dark walnut, while the dining room has been brightened up with cream walls, rich gold fabrics and statement glass chandeliers giving off a warm glow. Dishes on the revamped menu are absolutely faultless – witness crisp shreds of okra fried in the lightest of batters, perfect mouthfuls of tandoor-grilled chicken tikka, and juicy jumbo prawns expertly roasted in a clay oven. Regional specialities, such as nalli gosht (slow-cooked lamb shank and saffron curry, from the city of Lucknow) also delight, although prices are firmly attuned to the luxurious postcode.

Excellent food, good service and a quirky ambience. However, it is quite pricey.

One of the best places to eat everything was spot on for my husband birthday. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. Lovely atmosphere and the river view added to the comfort we ate in. We all enjoyed our meal and looking forward to our next visit.
