Only a hop, skip and jump away from Hyde Park, Saloos restaurant boasts a peaceful location on a Knightsbridge side street. It’s easy to miss, but you’d be doing yourself a disservice – the family-run restaurant has been serving up high-end authentic Pakistani cuisine to loyal customers for over three decades. Friendly staff are knowledgeable and happy to guide diners through the menu; specialities like their exquisite tandoori lamb chops and chicken Karahi, especially, are not to be missed. Smoky poppadoms and the large range of freshly made breads also come highly recommended. Decor here is elegant and understated so as not to draw focus from the star of the show – the food – however the first floor dining room is livened up with large windows and bright artwork. Salloos also has an extensive wine list
Please note that children under the age of 6 are not permitted in the restaurant during evening service, and there are no baby chair available.

Excellent food, but the service was below my expectations. It took a long time to get our drinks ordered, food ordered, coffee/dessert, and the bill. It felt like we were being ignored relative to the other tables, of which there aren't that many. I could understand this if it was a larger or lower priced restaurant, but for this venue the behavior felt almost disrespectful. I would definitely recommend this place for the food itself, but you should go in with the appropriate expectations for attention and timeliness.

It’s been a few years since I was last here but I needed my London curry fix - This is an old favorite that never disappoints. Great food - and lovely staff. Not a cheap curry but a very good one. The only thing that would make it better is if they had dhansak on the menu!

Deliciously authentic Pakistani restaurant in a quaint and pleasant setting with excellent service. My only complaint is that it was a very warm evening and the air conditioning was turned on very low.

The dining rooms and bar needs updating - needs paint and new furniture. It is an old establishment with 30 year old furniture but the food is good, Menu is very pricey for the lack of ambience that is provided. Service is always very good and friendly.

We came for the food: it was as per recommmendation of friends. Our waiter was personable and knowledgeable but...forgetful - he forgot one dish I had ordered (fortunately did not charge us) and one our table desserts (so the qulfi started melting on the others' plates whilst we waited). Also, I didn't like the 'turnover finished wine bottle style.'

Overpriced and bland. Been here a few times now, and continuously disappointed. Prices are way higher than they should be given the quality of the food. Lukewarm nargisi koftas, overcooked chicken boti, were but a few indications that this once excellent spot is in decline.

This restaurant is in a lovely townhouse, so the setting is nice enough, but the prices are far too high for the quality of food which was acceptable, but too oily. If I'm going to spend that much money on Indian food, it had better be outstanding. I would not go back again.

I have not been back to Salloos for years, it was always exclusive and refined. That has not changed very elegant and mature, the quality of the food is outstanding. My only negative about the whole experience is the cost of the side dishes. Cheap but beautifully seasoned vegetables are not expensive or time intensive - takes the edge of a beautiful meal.

I had heard great things about the food so took a chance, took four Pakistani friends for dinner there. Unfortunately not as good as were hoping for, may be our expectations were too high? Been to better indian/pakistani restaurants (food wise) in London.

We have gone to Salloos throughout the years and had always been satisfied with the experience. It is perhaps some 5 or 6 years since we were last there. Our friend from the US was staying close by and so we suggested Salloos. When we arrived at the reception desk, we were told we must wait, the entrance was empty and the hostess (who seemingly did not speak English) just stood there and starred at us for 5 minutes. We asked what was taking so long, but were offered not explanation, after a few minutes more, the hostess decided to take us upstairs. We could not figure out why the long wait as the restaurant was half full and there were many tables available for our size party. The food is ok, really on level of our local takeaway. The prices were insane for what was on offer - £25 for a prawn curry - 5 or 6 prawns - and they were half the size of a king prawn. A bill for 3 people - one bottle of indifferent wine, a vodka tonic, 3 main dishes, 2 vegetable and some rice and bread was £200. This is definitely not the restaurant we remember and we shall not be recommending it to anyone, nor shall we go again...pity!
