Excellent food - the genuine thing. Recipes are not adapted to Western tastes so the experience of eatin both starters and mains is the "real deal". Good service, occasionally a little chaotic. Highly recommended.

We've tried most of them, and always come back to Guglee. It's our local favourite, scene of many family special occasions. The food is consistently good - the carnivores among us adore the kashmiri lamb chops and the mutter paneer is great for veggies. The staff are always pleasant and polite and we hope it never changes. The colourful decor... More

Like other reviews we got the prawn main course and came with just 3!!!! The other dishes were lacking in flavour and the chicken tikka was dryed out!! The nann was ok and the free poppadoms however very disappointed overall.

We have eaten here a number of times over the years when visiting London as it is near the hotel we use. The food is of a consistent quality, the price is reasonable, the vegetable samosa is puff pastry which contrasts with the hard pastry usually found and they are open later than many eateries in the area. Well worth... More

Ordered from Guglee on Deliveroo a spicy shrimp dish, dahl and tikka masala. What can I say when the shrimp dish had only three shrimps in it?!!! Dahl was greasy & liquid and tikka was among the worst I've had. Maybe it was an off day given the other reviews. I won't order again.

We arrived in the area on Friday evening quite late (21:00) looking for somewhere to eat and found most places would close at 22:00. I thought London was a 24 hour city! We tried this restaurant on the basis that it stayed open until 23:00 and we did not want to be rushed. It turned out to be a good... More
