I cannot beging to tell you how bad the food is. The aloo chaat is basically a small bowl of aloo sabji and the paneer was bland. I wanted to cry thats how bad the food was.

Always friendly service, and excellent, tasty food. Prices very reasonable for central London. One of the best venues for food in South Kensington.

I see a lot of mixed reviews for this place. My wife and I visited in February mostly because it was close to our hotel and it wasn't anywhere near as busy as some of the restaurants on the Exhibition Rd pedestrian plaza. Service was prompt and polite. The food was quite good. My wife doesn't like too much spice... More

At the end I had to shout loud excuse me to... More

Stopped in here on the way home after a show at the Royal Albert Hall. Hadn't read the reviews so this is an unbiased review based on our visit. Service was pleasant enough, maybe not over the top friendly but polite and efficient given the restaurant was filling up pretty quickly (probably a lot of people doing the same thing).... More

I went here with 2 girlfriends. The waiter quite quickly realised that we would take ages to order as we were talking so much. He was very patient! He also checked with me that I really did want the 'Very Spicy' option- I did. The food was ok.

We got drawn in by the lunch set menu, which turned out to be both stingy (I counted two tiny chunks of lamb) and not very good.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
