Great poppadoms and pickles then downhill until great coffee. We found this overpriced and under seasoned. My starter was a couple of bland chicken patties/burgers whilst my wife had a sort of curried muesli with blueberries. For mains I had a very ordinary lamb curry...and rice devoid of any veg such as onion, pepper and tomato. My wife had some dry filleted chicken thighs with Tikka spicing. We shared some curried sautéed potatoes of which only half were fully cooked and a fine Nan and rice. It was so disappointing and somunlike other upmarket Indian restaurants we have visited and very pricey. Service and staff were good. Mineral water at £3.50 a litre was fairly priced. Does not compare to the Mehgna Grill who stood on this site for at least thirty yearsMore

The food is exceptional and exciting to taste. Flavours build in layers and unfurl after tucking into the imaginative presentation. This is a rare find and I could not rate it more highly Brilliant service, outstanding flavours and food and safe taking covid seriously with...care, which meant my brother who has been shielding felt safe to venture out to eat after seven months. I cannot wait to return.More

To put it in one word, OUTSTANDING! And yes, all caps, it's a shout. The definition of a hidden gem. The flavours are exquisite, the attention to detail and warmth on service second to none. We visited for the first time by friends recommendation pre-covid,...and now have returned a few times. On our last visit we brought a friend over who is incredibly demanding and selective with his food and wines, he traveled all the way from Highgate and said it was the best Indian food he's ever had. Love it! Keep up the awesome work, proud to have you as our local. Thanks, ARMore

We have visited GTR many times over the years and it is our favourite restaurant in South Woodford. The flavours of the food are so well crafted and build with each bite. The food is unique and the spice is so finely balanced. We brought...family here for a celebratory meal and they were amazed at how delicious and clever the food is. Even the side dishes on their own are so special. This restaurant is a beautiful gem with passionate and extremely knowledgable staff and owners. A visit to GTR is a gastronomic experience and we are so fortunate to have it within walking distance of our home. Thank you again!More
