We stayed at Holiday Inn at King's Cross and we would have loved to enjoy the Indian cuisine which was just next door but to our misfortune, the restaurant was closed. It was told to us that the contract was over with Holiday Inn

We were due to go here for our 10th wedding anniversary and had written confirmation from them. We turned up at the holiday inn to check in and when I said that we had a booking with the restaurant, we were told that they had shut down. This ruined what should have been a special night. I think it's disgusting... More

So, so sad at the end of an era. The truly legendary Keralan cuisine must continue. I shall be seeking out the other Rasa restaurants when renovation work shuts things down. I shared food here with my wife when she was my girlfriend. Please don't go away, Rasa Maricham! Massive recommendation. To (mis) quote Douglas Adams "try it...your mouth will... More

I was staying across the road at the Travelodge and spotted this restaurant under the Holiday Inn. There wasn't a menu outside that I could see so gave it a try anyway. I didn't have a lot of time so just went for poppadoms to start followed by the Keralan fish curry with plain rice. Poppadoms and dips fine and... More

Great Southern Indian cuisine. Our waiter was very helpful, polite and attentive. The food came in good time. The food can be a little on the spicy side (as is the nature of Southern Indian cooking), but the waiter is very helpful and will help you choose the right dish for you.

I was staying with a business colleaggue un the Holiday Inn. The restaurant occupies the hotel breakfast area in the evenings. The menu is not extensive but the food is reasonably priced and failry good. It is not up to the culinary standards of the best Indan restaurants in London or Birmingham, but perfectly adequate for an indian meal.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
